From Pipi’s Pasture: A snowy Thanksgiving

As I do morning chores here at Pipi’s Pasture, I can see the school buses coming and going. Recently on a snowy morning I was reminded of my teenage years when I was growing up on the ranch.

A few years back, I wrote a column called “How Much are You Worth?” I went back and read it this last week. It still speaks to me, especially in this month of November.
