At that moment in time (his "half time"), he discovered his love in life and his purpose for the second half. He and Grandma turned around the car immediately - drove back and settled in Stillwater, Oklahoma. Grandpa continued to "hobby" farm and raise a few head of cattle and they finally "retired" where they loved to be in Newkirk Oklahoma.
Grandpa was never the type to be "Big Hat - No Cattle"
