Lightning Creek was Walter Brennen's ranch; my earliest memories were there 1944 - 1946. Dad was a year-around ranch hand and mom cooked for the bunkhouse crew. We lived in a small white house on the lower end of the ranch buildings. Brennen's big home (big to me then) was a couple hundred yards up the creek from ours where the Brennens spent some time between his movies. Mrs. Brennen baked a cake for my 3rd birthday and Walter gave me 3 silver dollars; I don't remember a second of this and mom and dad spent the $3! One recall I have was a night we were coming home from Joseph/Enterprise in the folk's '40s Chevy pickup and dad got stuck fording Lightning Creek. It must have been a half mile hike or less, not far, but it was dark and there must have been 20 coyotes (or so it seemed then) tracking along and howling at us. Steve Hendricks Mount Vernon
