a bit more about Ryegate...

...Golden Valley County and the good ol' boys of the Golden Valley County Sheriff's Department, prosecutor's office and the adjacent Musselshell County Sheriff's Department.

You see, 'round there Sheriff's are the soopreme authority. Yessiree.

I now have enough information (I think) to write about what actually occurred on June 09, 2006 and the months subsequent to that date.

Of how the Golden Valley County good ol' boy sheriff fishy Floyd Fisher didn't return $1,907.00 in cash and a 1992 Dodge Stealth for quite some time... the car that a Musselshell county sheriff's female deputy told my source that her son was going to "look good driving around in..." and the cash that was returned in different denominations than the cash that was seized.

Hmmm, how's that happen if it's retained as evidence? Shouldn't the cash returned actually be the cash that was seized? I don't know about RYEGATE, MONTANA but in the rest of the United States, evidence (cash especially) is supposed to be protected and is supposed to follow a very regimented chain of custody.

Given the comments by the Musselshell County Deputy and fishy Sheriff Floyd Fisher, perhaps the "return" of this evidence... the cash and the car... was never an option until someone intervened and made things happen.

I will say the County prosecutor bailed from the whole scheme rather quickly after she found out my source simply wasn't going to be bullied and walk away.

I wonder where the original cash disappeared to and how good ol' boy fishy Floyd acquired the cash he eventually returned to my source. Did he have to secure a signature loan??? Speculation on my part, nothing more.

It's an interesting story and as soon as I'm through sorting things out I'm going to post it.

This crap is happening out here and it has to be addressed!

Oh yeah, on a good note, Dan the FBI man... thanks for the help... it seems to have done the trick... your good work coupled with the tenacity of a disgusted and "fed up" father seems to have changed some minds in Ryegate. You're a good man Dan.

Stay tuned

she's here!!!!

...Reese is here!

Okay, she's been here since September 5 but I just wasn't in the "blogging" mood.

She's definitely here though! We've been blessed by another angel!

Her name is Reese Madison. She was 8 lbs 9 oz and 20.5" inches long when born! Yup!!! She's here!

...and let me tell you she's getting prettier with each passing day. Something J and I never thought could be possible... how could any baby get more beautiful by the day when they're born as beautiful as Reese was born.

We thought this was simply impossible! But then again, J and I were in awe with each of our children and all three of our grandchildren.

And proud grandma... who'd have thought it! When our son and daughter in law bring Reese through our door J is no longer functionable. She abandons whatever she's doing and is grabbing Reese immediately, "coo-cooching" her and coddling her.

I'm thinking I must have a wife who simply loves her newest grand daughter! But then, who wouldn't love the precious child!

Anyway, she's here...

Don't you think her Daddy's looking a bit proud?

...and a bit bewildered? LOL!

I'd post a pic of proud Mommy but no one forwarded any to me and I didn't have the opportunity to take any yet.

I do love to see the start of a new, budding, lovely family...

...they warm my heart at a time when my heart is in need of a good, heartfelt warming.

I can only think back and remember the times when J and I had our first... our lovely daughter followed two years later by our second... our wonderful son and remember thanking God and anyone else that would listen for the two most beautiful and healthy children any parent could ask for. Now I've been able to see the "next" generation plant their roots and begin to grow!

This is so fine! So damned fine!

And DG... thanks for the congrats!

Isn't life nice...
