My father is 80 years old today! I won't say too much about it except that I hope I inherited some of his genes- he is still driving, working hard, and being ornery! (He is the older one of the two boys.)

Persevere: to persist in spite of counterinfluences, opposition, or discouragement.
The early settlers of Caddo faced violence, fierce weather, isolation, and poverty yet managed to create a community that has lasted one hundred and thirty-eight years. Twice Caddo was nearly devastated by fire, but the community rebuilt. And it thrived! Caddo was once home to more than 2,000 people and had visitors from all over the world. You can read about the Corn Carnival, the Moon Mausoleum, the Jefferson Highway, and many more of Caddo’s famous attractions. Order your copy of Persevering on the Prairie today!
