Chapter 3 – Concrete Angel

Ladies and Gentlemen, boys and girls Chapter 3 of Cowboy Conditions is built around a song, about a little girl, who has been abused, and despite her perseverance, ends up too soon in heaven.

Utah and Sky talked about what the theme was going to be, they wrestled with toughness, focus, reality, compassion and humility. They ended up seeing a need for a “call for action”, when action is called for.

Featured song is Concrete Angel originally performed by Martina McBride. click here to listen to the podcast.

February – Love and Valentines

Ladies and gentlemen, did you ever think you would get a cowboy like, Sky Russell, to agree to do a podcast about “Love & Valentines”?

Well, he’d much rather be out on the range sleeping in the dirt on the hard ground by a campfire, or roundin up some wild mustang horses, than to be in the studio with Utah, talking and singing about love.  But Sky knows, who hands him a paycheck so…… he agreed. Featured song is “Help Me Make It Through the Night”.

Auction Donations Are From the Sky Russell Collection

Tulips to Tidepools

Well the other day, Sky Russell invited Utah Red to the barn to look at select images from his world class collection of fanciful and inspiring images from the heretofore analog world of three color published images from great newspapers, calendars, magazines and art books.

Utah had gone on and on and on, telling Sky about this idea she had, about a silent auction,  to raise funds to help keep the “Match the SNAP” Incentive Program going at the renowned Everett Farmers Market located at the very utilitarian and quaintly charming Port of Everett Washington adjoining the deep water Port Gardner Harbor.

Walking to Heaven

Well, Sky knew he could help so, he reached into his drawers in the barn and released a few very special visual gems from his world class collection, for Utah to choose from,  which could be sold at this very noteworthy auction.

In the spirit of western sustainability, Sky also refurbished the unique frames for the images, which he collected from the “Goodwill Job Training Stores” located in Arlington and Marysville, Washington.

Old Cold Cows

Utah Red made twelve choices and is absolutely proud to present them to you, as seen here in this time honored tradition of a “silent auction”.  click here to go to the online silent auction.

On behalf of the past and future members of Uncertain Sky, Mr. Russell thanks each and every one of you for the very important contribution you will be making to providing funds to “Match the Snap” to help supply vitals to the less fortunate of our community.
