If my late father had a favorite winter day, it would have occurred on Dec. 22, 2015, this year.  That was the day when the nights started getting shorter and the days started getting longer.

Jerky, books, gadgets and all specific things about Wyoming were some of the ideas sent by friends when I asked them their recommendations as perfect last-minute stocking stuffers this Christmas.

Grrrr and Brrrr. I am sitting in my office in Lander staring out at a foot of snow and cold temperatures and unpleasant thoughts are going through my head.

It is amazing the difference a year can make in Wyoming when it comes to the economy.

It is an event that I call the “Annual Wyoming Reunion.”

It occurs each November when 650 people from all corners of the state gather in Cheyenne to celebrate our state, renew old acquaintances and take some vital readings on the condition of business in Wyoming.

Sometimes, it is just fun to write about odd and crazy stuff. And there has been no shortage of that here in Wyoming over the past few months.

My first chance to watch the late Clay James in action was when he was helping to preserve world peace from Jackson Hole, Wyoming, in 1989.

In Wyoming, we love our small towns. From Powell to Wheatland, from Pinedale to Pine Bluffs or from Kemmerer to Sundance, and all places in-between, folks in the Cowboy state love their hometowns.
