I heard from Reid about when he expects to announce the winners of the “Best First” contest. This is tentative, but he expects to notify me of the winners by this Friday, and I hope to have them posted here on Tuesday the 10th.
I know, I know. You’re reading this and thinking “Tentative?!” “Expects?!” “Hope to?!”
Yep, that’s what I said. And for good reason. I’m not holding him to either date because he’s got a lot going on right now.
If you recall, the first line of the bio paragraph from Reid’s interview on this blog reads, “Reid is fourth generation land and cattle.”
Reid is in the midst of the horrific wildfires gripping the nation right now, specifically the Arapaho Fire. On his Facebook page, he wrote that the situation is “… now grim. Beginning to move dozers, pumps, and other equipment up country to the cabins in the AM. Horse and cattle moving through opened gates down country.”
You can check out his page on Facebook for more details, pictures, and video. And, drop him a line of support and encouragement too if you’re so inclined.

Do you know anyone affected by the wildfires across America?
