Fenceline, Shelby, Montana

"Three long days of dust behind him, 
at least that many more to go. 
His job it is to ride the fences, 

to bend the wire and mend the posts...

Another sunrise finds him mounted 
ready to begin the day. For now the sun 
is at his back, 
no wind or rain to cloud 
their way. 

He loses count of what he mended on his 
journey east to west. He knows the 
corner post will greet him; three more 
lines until they rest."
