About the owner: I've always been a small town girl. My hometown is Grand Island, Nebr. and that's the largest city I've ever lived in. For many years Ilived in Wahoo, Nebr. and that's where my children were raised and where I owned and operated a very successful beauty salon. In 1993 I had the good fortune to meet Laurel Goddard, I sold my salon to on one of my stylists and in 1994 married Laurel and moved to northwest Kansas where his cattle ranch was located. From Wahoo, Neb. 36 miles west of Omaha, to a ranch 4 1/2 hours from any major city was quite an adjustment, but I had found my paradise. I found out the business of ranching and farming is not only a job, but a way of life. The people who live here take care of their land and are fiercely protective of it. I learned to ride a horse, move cattle, bottle feed a calf, and fix fence. I went from one house cat to 15 farm cats, give or take a few, and our dog Nacho. We raise a garden,can fruits and vegetables, and make homemade jams from wild sand plums and grapes. I love the small town of Morland, 7 miles from the ranch where you can really get a homemade meal at the Prairie Junction Cafe. I work in the beauty salon, Charlene's Cut and Curl, a couple of days a week. That salon has customers from every town in a 30 mile radius. Morland refuses to die and the people of the town work together to keep it alive. We are just a few months from re-opening our country grocery store which will have a taste of the past and convinces of the modern day. We know our neighbors up and down the country road and are happy to see them pull into the driveway. Some people would find it difficult to live 4 1/2 hours form any major airport, but not me. I go to Italy almost every year to see my cousins, or San Francisco to see my daughter. We can get anywhere from here and here is where life is good.. We are free here and I wouldn't want to live anywhere else. Come and see what I'm talking about. We're waiting for you. Mary
