We bought our beloved Dryad Ranch in the late 1990's and came to visit on weekends, holidays and vacations for years until my husband finally retired.  It's a lot of work, especially for my husband, as I am still working a full time job and can only devote time to the ranch and to my creative pursuits on the weekends and days off.  (I am endeavoring to win the lotto but so far have failed at that task.)
