the cabin, 90 years, and skeeters.

jeffers has been renting out this amazingly charming cabin for the past 7 winters.
its part of granite canyon ranch just north of jackson and owned by the sweetest couple, dick and dottie.
sidenote: dick and dottie are also parents to a son who happens to be the CEO and president of a little company that starts with pata and ends with gonia.
only my favorite outdoors brand ever.
anywho, dick turned 90 yesterday and had a little party at the ranch with all of his family and friends.
he made a toast to all of those special in his life and even gave a shout out to jeffers.
besides getting eaten alive by skeeters, it was so much fun to hear toasts from all of dick's lifelong friends.
"we met back in 1950!"
"dick taught me to drink whiskey....the wyoming way!"
"we skied together before there even was a resort!"
it all made my heart melt.

and i may have told his son that neon-patagonia-fleeces-never-went-out-of-style-so-could-you-please-have-them-in-next-season
on that note, you're welcome.

I'm sure Dick has a lifetime of stories to tell. So glad you got to celebrate his birthday! And as for Mr. Fancy pants Patagonia...well, it is really good to know people in high places.

I expect to see neon-fleeces soon. Then I expect you to be promoted to some very important position in the Patagonia company.
