|Amie, Emily and Jan and a couple friends|
There were other times during our stay when our relationship with the Halsteads was important. They had gas on their place, and we were able to purchase gas from them and then pay them back. It beat paying the rural gas station prices, or driving to Ely just for gas. We went to their house and watched movies. Sheri helped teach at their kids', Amie and Emily, school. Sometimes I helped Butch on the ranch. They had just gotten a bailer that made bigger bails, so there wasn't a lot of hauling hay, but I helped with the preparing feed a few times. Sheri and I also visited a cattle round-up with them. We played volleyball together and participated as the "ranch team" in the Duckwater Shoshone league.
