Notes for Roy Peter Wenande:
Roy Cowboyed and homesteaded on the LA ranch and the Joe Falls ranch, Rockypoint Wy. then moved back home to Alexandria SD when his father was injured in 1918. Roy had a chance to cowboy in South America, but declined. Roys brand was the Rocking R. When he died he was buried with his cowboy hat.
The following is related by his daughter Darlene: Dad helped me learn to ride my bike by holding on to it. I Am told that once the bike got away from me and I rode into a grain wagon. At one point I changed from calling him Daddy to Dad, because it seemed babyish. He told me to call him Daddy because I was too young to call him Dad.
When dad came in from farm work to have a break and some lunch which was usually twinkies and coffee, sitting on a red step stool by the kitchen counter,he did not have much of a break or lunch because Val and Pat ( Michele) would be on his lap, " sharing " lunch.
When Mom and Dad went to Mitchell to the dance, they took me along and I spent the night in the coat room, sleeping on the coats. One night at the end of the dance, ( I was very little and wearing my most favorite outfit, wine velvet skirt and jacket with a white satin blouse ) he picked me up ( I was awake ) and danced with me. I was surprised that he was so proud of me -- but he was also showing off.
Two other outfits I remember: a green cape. I felt so wonderful in that cape. and I wore an enlisted man's army style hat. The other outfit was a coat- 2 actually. One was a sharkskin and the other a fitted Coral colored coat. One or the other- I asked dad for money to buy it and he said no, too much money. I said, well he spent $ 25.00 to $ 50.00 just on spurs and he gave me the money.
