Ever since ol' Windy began a career in radio, which is unusual for an old hunting guide, cowboy, and camp cook, he's been spending more time thinking about things to say. His radio segment, called Windy's Words of Wisdom, has given him new purpose.

Down at the sale barn the other day, he meandered around until he had several of the guys semi-cornered. You see, the only thing in life Windy Wilson can't live without is an audience.

"Now Doc," Windy said, "you watch teevee, right?"

"Of course."

I was recently invited to join Bob Milford, manager of the prestigious Diamond W Ranch, on a drive-around tour of the place. It's a huge, private ranch, with tiny ex-logging roads winding around through 13,000 acres of pine trees and rocks. A real paradise.

But I was horrified to see wooden street signs nailed to trees wherever two of these old logging trails came together.

"Oh no," I said, out loud.

"What's the matter?" Bob asked.

"I see you're planning a subdivision here."

I think there must be autumnal reasons for Halloween being hued in orange and black. It's a fun time, a magic evening if you're a kid, and if you're a grandpa-type guy, like me, who gets to hand out the goodies.

But the colors of this sweet evening celebration are orange and black, and so is October. In another week or so, our deciduous trees will stand like skeletons against the gray skies of winter, but now we have the orange and black of fall.

It's fall, and time once again for the Chipper Invitational Golf Tournament here in the valley. You remember Chipper, Doc's imaginary squirrel? The one who was squirrel-napped?

Doc named the annual golf tournament to raise money for coats for kids who need them after good 'ol Chipper, since the golf tournament itself was just about as genuine as the squirrel.
