Sending emails ‘You have News from Wandaland” to family and friends all across the states and to foreign countries is a hobby of Kodell Parker. He lives on a small cattle farm in north east Texas where cattle graze and coyotes sing at night. He often wrote about some amusing experience or happening. This became an interest after having retired from a major Oil Company in Alaska in the late 70’s, and settling down in Texas. Since there are days for no hay pitching, stalls to clean or fences to fix there was time for other satisfying and pleasurable activities to engage in.In the bunk house in the drawer of an old file cabinet which has seen its better days is a folder containing copies of many e-mails he has sent to a mail list over the past few years. He never kept any of the replies sent to him for reasons which have escaped his mind.Often comments about a certain subject written about were received. It was not uncommon for someone to say “better layoff the juice” or “hide the jug in the barn.” There was one who said that he was a “hoot” whatever that is. When the “mood “came upon him to tell folks hither and yonder how it is at Wandaland he just weighed in and commenced to write. His e-mails are styled as “News from Wandaland where the cows are always hungry and never give up their milk.”More than once a person or two would say you should write a book about that. This is a collection of a few of his “News from Wandaland” just to show that he is not “loco”, strange or a complete idiot as some people have commented. Perhaps you will say there is a wrangler “out there” sending e-mails all over the country and you should read one or two.The short stories are Reflection of rural life of the Parker family of fifteen siblings living in East Texas. The author penned the stories when he worked for a major oil company at Dead Horse, Alaska in the 1970’s when there was total dark days and “cabin fever” would set it.He truly hopes the e-mails and the short stories are pleasurable.. Thank you for allowing them to be shared with you.Sincerely,Kodell Parker, head wrangler at Wandaland.
