The Toymaker

Back in the days of the first Gulf War, I was keeping the U.S. safe at Dyess,AFB in Abilene TX. by partying and chasing women. Hey, someone had to do it. One weekend, my fellow airman, Jared Derringer, and I decided we would venture out to Dallas, TX. for a few days and take up the chase there, just to give the women in Abilene a break. On our second night in Dallas, we were heading out to the clubs when I came up with a plan on how we would approach and engage our quarry. We would not tell the women we met we were in the Air Force, we would come up with another career or job or whatever, just for the hell of it. Sounds brillant, right? Yeah, right. I decided I would be a Business Broker, which I had no idea at the me and s ll don't know what exactly a business broker does or if they exist. I knew, though, I could B.S. my way through it. ( B.S. are my ini als, you know.) Jared had not decided what his false occupa on would be before we started drinking and carousing, but it wasn't a big deal, I knew he'd come up with something. At some point, we ran into a group of about 6 or 8 women and started talking to them. The next thing I knew I was dancing with one of them and Jared was doing the same. The woman and I finished dancing to a couple of songs and we made our way back to the group, who by the way, turned out to be a bunch of elementary grade school teachers. The lady I had danced with asked me what I did and my line of crap automa cally started flowing. I knew i was doing a good job, because she was just as confused as I was. Then I heard Jared and his girl coming back from the dance floor, and I say " heard"

Dennis DuPerault

because she had him by the hand, was pulling him towards us and was excitedly yelling, “Guess what he does for a living, guess what he does!!!" Of course, I was just as interested as the women in finding out what Jared's occupa on was, as he had not informed me of it either since we were too busy partying and chasing women.

Eddie Floyd

"My Hero", Shari Floyd

For twenty years Shari Floyd managed her stores, Great Earth Vitamins, while simultaneously opera ng Northern Nevada Home Sales. But her real passion has always been, and will probably always be, the horses, especially the wild ones. One day, Shari had lunch with country western singer/star Lacy J Dalton and learned that Hidden Valley Wild Horse Protec on Fund needed a home for over100 horses they and others rescued from poten al slaughter. I will never forget the day Shari called me a er having lunch with Lacy and said, "I am going to sell the cows and turn our ranch into a wild horse sanctuary!" I responded, "Well, you have finally found something we can take care of that will cause us to go broke faster than all the others!" But I was proud of her decision and passion for our American Heritage, the wild horses. Shari has run the Wynema Ranch for nearly two decades. Quarter and Paint horses formerly roamed her pastures and were part of Shari’s breeding stock. A horseman for over fi y years, she has also raised mules and run ca le on her ranch, including such exo c breeds as: Brahman and Watusi Ca le. As I o en say on the radio with America Ma ers Media, (americama ers.us) "Shari runs the Ranch, while I simply RUN MY MOUTH!" Wynema Ranch Wild Horse Sanctuary prides itself as an eco friendly rescue and rehabilita on refuge for America’s wild mustangs, burros, and mules. For these majes c creatures that once roamed the range free, a safe haven and alterna ve to slaughter has been conceived. The premise upon which this sanctuary has been established is that all rescued animals are given the best chance for a rewarding life in their new restricted regime and that each animal will be given a new purpose. Those wild horses and burros who willingly sign onto people and establish a bond through a process known as “gentling” will be given an opportunity for permanent homes under the watchful eye of Wynema Ranch Wild Horse Sanctuary Adop on Program. If circumstances change for their adop ve family, return of adop ve animals will be welcomed. Other horses will be given opportuni es to par cipate in programs to help heal, self‐empower, and inspire returning veterans, veterans’ families, at‐risk youths, foster youths, recent parolees, and those struggling with addic ons. Addi onally, the rescued herds will join in helping to educate the public, especially the community’s youth, through programs offered at the ranch about the heritage, the behavior, and the beauty of one of America’s most cherished icons−Wild Mustangs. Future plans include Doctor James Forsythe, as well as others na onwide, to use the horses for therapy for pa ents, including children, veterans and others recovering Continued on page 4

from addic ons. It is called either Hippo or Equine Therapy, and it has been proven to work. In addi on, it gives the horses a job, to help us help them with all of their needs. Working together, we hold the space to ensure those horses that once roamed free, can be as wild as they need to be, under the protec on of Wynema Wild Horse Sanctuary. Currently the goal for the Ranch, soon to be the Forsythe Ranch, is to secure dona ons for a solar pump to save not only with man hours of labor, but also between

$400 and $500 for gasoline to run regular generators to keep the wild mustangs’ water troughs full. Please visit www.WynemaRanch.com and take a virtual tour of the Ranch, as well as get involved with the horses and other animals that call the Ranch Home. And remember, you are always welcome at the Wynema Wild Horse Sanctuary. I like to say, "Just give us no ce, and the no ce I am referring to is when you get to the last gate, simply YELL 'We're Here!" See ya there!

Then she stunned me by saying "He's a toymaker, he makes toys." The lady I was talking to asked what her friend had said about Jared's career. I replied, while trying to keep a straight face, "Umm, he designs kids toys, he's a toymaker." “Wow, neat!" she said. Later on, a er the ladies had le and we were headed back to the hotel, I just looked at Jared and said, "Toymaker,

huh?!" "Well, she told me she was a school teacher, so I figured, hey, teacher....kids... toys,.... Toymaker." Jared actually had "Toymaker" put on the back of his so ball jersey for the squadron team. God bless you, Jared my friend. I wonder if he ever got that posi on at the north pole.

“Walk the Turtle”

Mike Aloia As the shadows of clouds converge against the light of day, it casts the whirlwinds upon the air we breathe, the momentum beyond the drizzle is felt when we are drowned by society’s wrath.

A pleasure to watch the hail within the cast of raindrops that blind our perceptions and directions, the fears of progress become a mere memory after we are able to breathe. Reminders may linger as our integrity and devotions become apparent to the understanding and purpose of self, to know who we are, to see the positions we are given, accepting responsibility to share. To hear your calling and present your best performance, to be looked up to and never look down upon those that may be lost, expressions of kindness is to be used as your shield against the anger and hate

Embrace our life In the midst of thunder rumbling in your distant past, it must pass through your soul like a wave of warmth instantly filling your heart, to awaken within the calm of humble and pray with grace.

Our lives of constant change are guided by the hand that holds the sails, the shredded cloth has endured the high winds and raging seas, a time of rest begins as we take a step back and see the big picture.

To have the gift of longevity during this, our gift of life is a blessing beyond graciousness; it is the wisdom earned by the painful heart wrenching realities that are part of who we are, it is what to have lived means. As the dark clouds have simply diminished, when we have walked the turtle for many moons, we will find ourselves at the crossroads of turning points when we reach those milestones in life.

Ken Roberts Alterna ve investments have become increasingly popular lately and for good reason; they can poten ally provide for some decent returns and can help diversify tradi onal stock and bond por olios. Some people are using their qualified re rement accounts like IRAs to hold real estate and even small businesses. Real estate can be an a rac ve investment for several reasons including long term capital apprecia on and cash flow. Before purchasing real estate within your IRA, it’s very important to consider the pros and cons carefully. One considera on is that you’ll lose some important tax deduc ons. Property tax and mortgage interest are already tax deduc ble, so if you buy real estate within an IRA, you’ll lose those two deduc ons. You’ll also lose the deprecia on deduc on that you get with an investment property. The IRS has a lengthy list of prohibited transac ons; the rules are complicated and must be followed accurately or you could lose the tax deferred status of your re rement account if one of them is broken. You’re not allowed to live or work on your own property, so a property manager is required. All funds invested in the property must come from the IRA account and that includes maintenance and repairs. Substan al taxes and penal es could be due if one of the rules is violated. Ge ng a mortgage inside an IRA account can also be difficult which means you won’t be able to use the leverage that a mortgage can provide, and of course you don’t get the mortgage interest deduc on. RMDs or required minimum distribu ons from an IRA can also get very complicated if you’re primarily invested in real estate and have to start withdrawing funds a er you turn age 70

Alternative investments in an IRA

½. If you’re thinking about investment real estate and don’t want to own it in your name for liability reasons, you might want to consider establishing an LLC to own the property. An LLC can provide protec on from creditors in the event of a lawsuit. Having the investment property held by an LLC can also make having a mortgage even more advantageous because the debt lowers your liability exposure. Inves ng in real estate within your re rement account is a decision that requires complete understanding of some very complicated rules. If not done right, you could lose the tax status of your re rement account. Do your research carefully.

Oh, how Mark Twain loved animals

Maybe it was because of the abundance of cri ers observed in the gold mining areas of Nevada during his travels and while employed at the Territorial Enterprise in Virginia City that Mark Twain, an ardent student of animals, penned so many of his me‐honored observa ons that uniquely captured animal contribu ons to society. Compe ng newspapers in Virginia City at the me were always trying to best each other with outrageous “Scoops” when Samuel L. Clemens began wri ng for the Enterprise. While there he changed his name to Mark Twain and began a short run (twenty one months) and enhanced his growing reputa on for using animals in his curious, fallacious observa ons of the human condi on. He once reported that his first thought on seeing Virginia City was that “…it looked much like a skinned cat”. He would periodically invent stories such as the ones about “…a lamb chewing tobacco on B Street” and “…a cat being observed drinking coffee laced with cognac on Main Street”. Twain and his friend Dan DeQuille, a reporter for thirty two years and later editor of the Territorial Enterprise gained fame in wri ng what they called “Quaints” which were outright fabrica ons. They amused and pleased their followers, bewildered their compe tors, sold lots of papers and contributed to making the Enterprise the largest selling newspaper in the west. The following are but a few of the many observa ons in which Twain men oned animals made during and a er his employment in Nevada:

a bull by the tail once had learnt sixty or seventy mes as much as a person that hadn’t and said a person that started in to carry a cat home by the tail was gainin’ knowledge that was always going to be useful to him, and warn’t ever going to grow dim or doub ul. **The principal difference between a cat and a lie is a cat only has nine lives. **Noise proves nothing. O en a hen who has merely laid an egg cackles as if she has laid an asteroid. **Mules and donkeys and camels have appe tes that anything will relieve temporarily but nothing sa sfy. **If you should rear a duck in the heart of the Sahara, no doubt it would swim if you brought it to the Nile. **A home without a cat…and a well‐fed, well pe ed,

**We should be careful to get out of an experience only the wisdom that is in it and stay there, lest we be like the cat that sits down on a hot stove lid. She will never sit down on a hot stove lid again and that is well; but also she will never sit down on a cold on anymore. **Uncle Abner said that the person that had took Copyright, 2015, LeRue Press.
