Summer Update 4R Ranch Newsletter
June 22, 2020 by Deryl McKinnerney
Hello to all our friends in the 4R Family! I trust this note finds you healthy, safe and enjoying your summer. Jill and I are currently in New Mexico where you would be hard pressed to be any farther away from madness of The Three "Ps": Pandemic, Protests and Politics. The greatest asset any small community possesses is independence. Independence in this sense is from all the chaos that is ensuing in the larger urban areas of our Country. Masks are minimal, tourists are flocking to the mountains in droves and spirits are high.Read More
Spring 2020 4R Ranch Newsletter
April 24, 2020 by Deryl McKinnerney
Hello to all our friends in the 4R Family. I trust this letter finds all of you healthy and safe. I have been sending out newsletters for 16 years and I can safely say the timing of this letter finds all of us in a common harbor of uncertain times. As I discussed with my father earlier this week, we are living in 24-hour windows. Not by design, but by the daily reporting of numbers. Are there more cases, less cases, flattening curve or still moving upward? All these questions lead to further questions and at the end of that line of questions, we still revert to the first question, what are the numbers saying? None of us have been here before and we are all looking at this through a different lens based on our life situation.Read More
PARMESAN-ASIAGO MUSHROOM CHICKEN
October 15, 2019 by Jill McKinnerney
The best gift you can give or receive sometimes comes from the kitchen. This recipe is no exception!
Whether planning an intimate dinner for 2, or a great family dinner, this is one of my favorites! This flavorful meal will light up your taste buds and be ready to serve in less than 40 minutes. I serve mashed potatoes and bacon wrapped asparagus as side dishes. Then to compliment this flavorful dinner I finish with Pecan Cobbler for dessert. Enjoy!
4R Ranch 2019 Summer Update

As decorated historian David McCullough most thoughtfully said History is a guide to navigation in perilous times. History is who we are and why we are the way we are. The hay is in the barn, the cows are fat and we still have good cover in our pastures entering the hottest stretch of summer. Yes, Mother Nature has been kind to us in 2019 and for that we are most thankful.Read More
Pick of The Litter

Going to buy Pointers in Tennessee is one of the weeks I hold in high anticipation each year. Injecting young dogs in our kennel is a necessity and I simply love looking at young talent. I am fortunate these days. I have been purchasing my Pointers from the same source for several years. Ross knows what I like, I love what he has, so the feeling out process between the two of us has long run its course. Now when I show up to look at dogs, Ross has culled hard and has only the crème of the crop to show me.Read More
