    You can accomplish a lot in 85 years, I was raised on large ranches in SW Texas high desert..rodeod out of high school, went into state law enforcement then to Federal DEA, at the same time I guided on our leased ranch and for my family and friends for deer and antelope in the Texas Big Bend as it didn't interfere with my LE, later I took a leave of absence from DEA and ranched full time on a 75,000 ac. desert ranch that teamed with big deer and Coues deer and guided for myself and sold hunts world wide..then returned to Fed service with the USFS as a special Agent and got in my needed 6 years and retired on that pension. I went to full time booking in Africa and other parts of the world. I built custom rifles for myself and friends and got big bucks for them... Today I raise horses and team rope with my kids, granddkids and friends in Idaho..Lot of other stuff took me to different paths in the above but that would take a book to tell all. Like I said you can do a lot in 85 years if you can keep going and Ive been blessed, of that I have no doubt..
