I met Karen in the fall of '84. Our first date was a picnic up in the mountains. She was a bit concerned when I picked her up in a beat up Dodge Power Wagon with a bird dog in the back. She was really alarmed when a Grouse crossed the road and I slammed on the brakes, pulled a shotgun from behind the seat and said "let's go". She elected to stay in the truck while "Rosie", my Gordon Setter, and I chased a bird through the woods. I'm sure she wondered what she had gotten herself into. We had a great picnic on Divide Peak on the Montana/Idaho border. Karen soon fell in love with the dogs and the mountains as much as me, and we celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary this December.
