                      My dad is 85 years old and a wealth of wisdom and knowledge.  He serves as president of the Cowboy Story Tellers of  the Western Plains.  A couple of times a year a newsletter is printed and being the president he is required to write an article.  Today his story was on the droughts he had witnessed and I thought it too good not to share.  There are more "drought" stories, and he promised he would elaborate more so watch for Part II of Memories of Drought and other stories from my dad, Ralph Chain.                 
P.S. If you're interested in becoming a member of the Story Tellers' Assn. meet us in Pretty Praire, KS November 5th!
