main reason we stopped in Sheridan was to see if I could locate the ranch
I spent the Summer when I was 15 years old. All I could remember was it
was North of Sheridan on the Montana - Wyoming border. I stayed with Chuck
and Joanne Bell who I had met when Dad and I stayed at a dude ranch in Wickenburg,
Of course nothing looked the same and I was about to give up when we drove by the small town of Decker, MT. Decker has a population of less than 10 people and it has a new post office and one other old building. Sue suggested I stop in and ask if they knew of the Bells. I wasn't even sure if they ever lived in the area. Well I did stop there and I couldn't believe it when the lady behind the counter not only knew them but she had married Joanne's brother. I also found out that Joanne still lives in Sheridan but unfortunately Chuck had passed away a few years back. I did call Joanne she invited Susan me to visit her and see some of Chucks woodcarving. As it turned out, he was a professional wood carver and did some beautiful work. Joanne is standing beside some of his carvings. What a delight to discover her again after all these years and to see Chuck's wonderful carvings. I had no idea he was so talented.
