Corrrespondence between Dwight Blood and 7D Ranch

Hello Dwight, 

That is a very interesting and cool story.  Of course you can use our photos!  Thanks for asking.  My husbands grandparents bought the Ranch in 1958.  If you are ever in the neighborhood please stop by.  Our best to you.  -Andrea

Hello, my name is Dwight Blood.  I am the son of Russell Blood who spent his growing up years on the Dewey Riddle ranch in Sunlight.  Dewey was his uncle; Elsie was his mother's sister.  Dad was an orphan.  He met my mother there when she went to Sunlight as a cabin girl one summer.  My brother and four sisters all love your facebook entries since it gives us a way to connect to the place where our dad grew up.  Would you be willing to give me permission to use an occasional photo to post to our family blog Penrose Mornings?  I will always cite the source as 7D ranch.  Your photos have such a special meaning for all of us in our family and we are so glad to see them.  Thank you.  Dwight Blood

Here is my letter and the 7D response, which I very much appreciate.  I believe we have some friends there now, and I'm sure any comments you wish to make to them or any family stories about the ranch and Sunlight would be welcome.  Meanwhile, I'll repost a few of the pictures that give all of us new insight into the ranch that was such an important part of our family history.

I am so glad you got in touch with the 7D ranch. Do you wonder which cabins Dad helped build?

Good effort to connect with the Sunlight years and what the ranch has become. I've so enjoyed seeing their daily postings on FB. It makes Mom and Dad's story come alive even more.

What a great idea! I have so enjoyed the pictures that you have sent to Facebook. I can just imagine the whole surroundings, even though I've never been there.
