Just noticed the sad news. You never know when it will be your last day on earth.

There are many ways a person's influence can live on. I'll forever remember the stories Tom shared. I recall recommending on page one of this thread that he write a book, and I hope it can still be put together. I know many who don't use the internet that would enjoy the printed word.

I just finished reading this thread. It felt like a knife in my heart when I read he died. I loved this thread, and hearing of the life he LIVED.

I bought some of the books he suggested, and am enjoying them today and forever.

I can only hope to be as great a man and soul as IDAMAN. He is off to a new adventure, one we all make someday.

Be that Idaho Man, he is The Man.

From far away I pay my respects to Idaman's family and friends.
Somehow I was fascinated by his stories, and when I read that he had passed away, a part of myself did the same.

Oh my gosh I LOVE this picture. Looks like a bull my Grandpa had. He sold his Holsteins and went into Herefords in the 40s.

That's funny Cathy my grandfather sold his sheep(as soon as the ranch was paid off) and went to Herefords in the early 40's.

He told me when i was little that he paid for a farm and a ranch raising the things others didn't want to raise and the things he knew folks had to have(beans)

FWIW he (my grandpa) bought cattle from the Deewal's at some point. According to my Dad anyway!

Grandpa and Grandma had dairy cattle but were milking by hand, Grandma decided they were getting out of the Holsteins because she was not gonna spend the money on milking machines, she was clearly the boss of the place and everyone knew it. They raised some fine Herefords. They gave my brother a beautiful heifer for his 13th birthday and he built a herd that when he sold it at age 19 he bought a little farm down the road from our homestead.

Wow, I just finished reading this and didn't even realize the man had passed away or how old the post were until I had came to the end. Its good when you can hear older folks talk about there experiences in life and even better when its in writing. Its like a piece of them lives on through the writings. I always enjoyed hearing my grandparents talk about how things were when they were kids or hearing the stories of my friends grandpa when he was in WW-2 and fighting overseas as well as Korean conflict. Its never lost if its shared and sometimes when we share our own life and stories it lives on as that person shares it with there friends or family. Condolences to Idaman's family as well as a Big Thank You to him for sharing these treasured memories :)

Fans of Idaman will be happy to know that a book compiling his posts is in the works. It's been a labor of love over several years as it has had to fit around my schedule, but we're almost ready to send it to a publisher.

If you would like to be notified when it's available, please email me at gbrumbelow@gmail.com. I made this offer several years ago but was way too early, so I have lost track of requests that came at that time. If you would be so kind as to send again, that would be good.
