My daughter Tammy and her husband, David Hoherz, moved from North Dakota and purchased their new ranch just three miles east of Dayville and are raising black Angus cattle.
David is a real cowboy, and Tammy is a rancher's wife, science teacher and photographer.
As her father, I travel the country in my RV filming and photographing wildlife and landscapes.
Recently I filmed and photographed Dayville's Fourth of July celebration from the ground and the air to help promote the town as I did for the small town I lived in North Dakota.
Since July 13, the video has been viewed over 900 times in 16 different states indicating that the people in and around Dayville have a following.
I have found the townfolk, including those in Grant County, warm and have welcomed my kids into their community with grace and overwhelming friendliness.
On a lighter note I came from Grant County, North Dakota — small world.
I will leave soon but will be back for sure as I can now call Grant County and Dayville, Oregon, my new home.
