When I finished checking out with the girl at the Atwoods register, she said, “Have a goodun’.” She was all business, a pretty girl in jeans and t-shirt, and as a store manager, obviously knew about horse feed, ammunition, veterinary supplies and all the other myriad items Atwoods Farm & Ranch sells. Was she raised on one of the many horse ranches in the area? A lot of young women here work at ranches to help train horses. Was she one of those? Are you ever curious about some of the people you come in contact with and wonder about their background? “Have a goodun’” sounded like something she had heard her dad say, so I’m thinking she grew up on a ranch or farm. I love living in Texas!
