Gettin' ready to wrangle some Dudes!
We’ve been a little slack in our postin’ the past couple of days. Thats because we’re getting ready for the Jolly Ranch / Dr. Sketchy’s / Trap\door traveling caravan planned for Sunday. A dude ranch has to be prepared to receive the tenderfoots and show ‘em a good time! So we hope you’ll stop by on Aug 29th at 11:00am to participate in the fun. We’ll have our historical drawing tour through the pass and then come back to the Jolly Ranch for the souvenir store, dude lessons, maybe a ghost story or three and some grub.
If you want to know a little more before you come out, be sure to catch Trap\door Radio, Thursday at 2pm on CKXU. If you can’t pick up the channel or don’t have a radio you can listen on-line too! http://www.ckxu.com The Dude and I were interviewed today by Magoo via skype.
I think we gave good radio.

From tenderfoot to dude:
Day 18 of the Moustache Project.
And…a little something for all the dude fanciers:
Rocky heads out for another day of ranch duties:
From the Jolly Ranch promotional literature:
Daily chores are part of the dude ranch experience. Dudes are able to get involved in all aspects of Ranch life. Here, Rocky works outside of the main studio.
Dudes and dudeens need to get down. It’s an old fashioned ranch rave happen’ here.

The Crowsnest Pass is full of significant world changing history. Did you know that the very first KFC in Canada was in the CNP? And Colonel Saunders himself came to visit! During his visit he sampled the local chicken gravy and was smitten. He took the recipe and instituted it across the entire the company!
Of course, a good researcher knows that they must verify their facts. So off to the local KFC we went to sample gravy.

Thick, Luscious Gravy
Why Thank-You, Colonel Saunders!
I would like to point out that the Dude is vegetarian so all meat related investigations are left to me… I’m very full of gravy right now.
I’m not sure if there are any words at this moment.
