Great Man, Great Priest's Quorum Advisor

Contributor: onredroads Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

When I first moved to San Jose I was not actively involved in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I was busy working and a variety of other things. Brent would be waiting for me when I'd come home from work some nights to say hello, see how things were going, and invite me to church activities. I finally started attending and got to know his sons who were about my age. One spring break, I got to go with Brent and his sons to Brent's cousin's (Cecil Ryan Jones) ranch for branding. I had a great time. Several things that Brent taught me have stayed with me over the years. He is a great man. I loved Wyoming so much, I bought property about 20 miles south of the Jones' ranch and dream of retiring up there.

The Jones' Ranch, Wyoming

Contributor: onredroads Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

At Cecil's daughter's request, I'm adding a few more memories of my trip to the Jones' ranch in Wyoming. I believe it was in the spring of 1973 that I met Cecil Jones and his family. I was living in San Jose, Ca and was invited by Cecil's cousin, Brent Jones, to take a trip during spring break to Wyoming for spring branding. I was friend's with Brent's sons, Mark, Bryan, and Nathan. I remember arriving at the Jones' home, and being amazed at how big it was. I believe it was an old school house that they'd moved to the property. It was up on a slight rise and had a great view out the east windows. Now, this is the memory of a 60-year-old, that was originally seen through the eyes of a 16-year-old (approximately), so accuracy and focus may be humorous. I remember eating REALLY well while we were there. I can't remember Cecil's wife's name, but she was a fabulous cook! The one meal that was unforgettable was interesting. The four of us teenagers - Mark, Bryan, Nathan, and me - were hearty eaters, and probably scarfed down everything put in front of us. The one night, we were eating what I remember as being noodles and meat in a delicious sauce. As usual, we were eating fast, and probably recklessly, until there was only one serving left and were discussing who should get the last serving. The adults at the table seemed to be enjoying our conversation, and more amused than I would have expected. One of them interrupted our discussion, I think it was Cecil or Brent and said, "You boys do know what you're eating, right?" Being teenagers, and knowing everything, we answered, "Yes!" "So you know those are Rocky Mountain Oysters in that sauce?" Our reaction was probably similar to what you would expect. Even though we had absolutely loved what we were eating before we knew what it was, none of us would touch the last serving. The adults happily finished it. Again, being mischievous teenagers, I also remember that we were instructed that whatever we shot, we'd have to eat. We had access to some 22 rifles and so we started bringing cottontail rabbits back to be cooked. We actually weren't interested in eating them, be we were interested in shooting them. When we started bring them back to eat, there was a short conversation between Cecil and his wife, and then Cecil came to us and said that if we wanted to shoot rabbits, we'd have to shoot them through the ears three times, before killing them (I think we were bring back too many.) That did limit our rabbit harvest, but definitely created a challenge for us. Working with the cattle was a dream come true for me. I loved riding horses, even though I had little experience. Cecil taught us how to saddle the horses, but we may not have paid close enough attention. I remember three or four of us taking off to "race" and I must have been behind a ways, because I watched Bryan slowly rotate, saddle and all, counter-clockwise on his horse until he was nearly under the horse and was kicked in the head. If I remember, he was unconscious for a while, but seemed to suffer no ill-effects of the concussion. We all paid better attention to our saddling techniques after that. I also remember us deciding to ride bareback for one short task, thinking we were real cowboys after a couple of days in the saddle. I really had no idea what I was doing, and horse I was riding kept trotting until I bounced off and into the mud. I ended up walking the horse back to the coral. After we had branded, I don't remember how many calves, seemed like hundreds, Cecil told us we needed to get the yearlings. They led us to a coral and I kept looking at the cattle in the coral trying to find the yearlings. "Where are they?" "That's them!" I think Cecil explained to me that these were calves that were born after branding last year. I couldn't believe an animal could grow that much in just under a year! I remember on Sunday were were all dressed up and heading up to Church when Cecil noticed the milk cow had gotten out of where she was supposed to be. Cecil, although in a suite and tie, stopped the car, walked over, led her back to the gate. When she hesitated, he gave her a push from behind to get her in, and just as he did, she splattered him with manure. He changed his clothes and then we went on our way. His composure never seemed to change, his only comment, in a calm voice was, "Now that's what's known as a s___y situation." Not specifically related to Cecil, but another humorous thing I remember was, we were driving the cattle down the highway, trying to keep them off the road so the cars could get by, when a car with California license plates stopped and started taking pictures of the four of us and the cattle. I remember thinking, if they only knew they were just taking pictures of four California teenagers on spring break, they may not have stopped to take the pictures. It was a wonderful trip. Great memories with great people. All of the Jones families were great and loving people. It really made a difference in my life and of course gave me some great stories to tell.

Cecil Ryan Jones was 19 years old when Space Race: Launch of Sputnik 1, the first artificial satellite to orbit the Earth. The Space Race refers to the 20th-century competition between two Cold War rivals, the Soviet Union (USSR) and the United States (US), for dominance in spaceflight capability. It had its origins in the missile-based nuclear arms race between the two nations that occurred following World War II, aided by captured German missile technology and personnel from the Aggregat program. The technological superiority required for such dominance was seen as necessary for national security, and symbolic of ideological superiority. The Space Race spawned pioneering efforts to launch artificial satellites, uncrewed space probes of the Moon, Venus, and Mars, and human spaceflight in low Earth orbit and to the Moon.
