I consider myself fortunate to have grown up on a family farm, a childhood I have always treasured, and even more so as I grow older. Since leaving the farm, I’ve lived in some of the most vibrant cities in the United States and traveled to far off corners of the world, but there’s nothing like being at home on the farm with my family. So I decided to write a book about it - "The Rangity Tango Kids." It recalls the rough edges, as well as the happy moments, of a rural life between the endless row crops and small town country life, a re-creation of a world that is disappearing.
I’m sure there must be a lot of you who have lived life to the fullest and had disappointments - and a few battle scars along the way - but continue to do all you can to make your life the best it can be. I hope after reading about what life was like on the farm, you’ll be willing to share some of your life with me.
