Ginny Prior published “Dude Ranch Dreaming” in the July-August issue of Oakland Magazine. Here’s the lead for this fun story:
“I had to pinch myself. Twice. This chiseled cowboy was singing a love song just for my girlfriends and me. And when he finished, he ambled over to the saddle-shaped bar stool and poured us all drinks.
