Started with Benson in 1981 and have survived all the purchases and changes (so far!) Started Cedarmont in 1993 with my wife, Sue. Tried unsuccessfully to keep Keith Compton and Doug Sarrett out of Studios!
We *did* have a ranch...bought it back in 1991 and had a fulltime WORKING cattle (black angus seedstock) through 2002...it was a BEEUTIFUL place - hills and valleys and quite a view. We did sell it and move back to Denton then; I do miss the countryside. (sigh) I had NO idea you were an animal science major! Paul was raised on a farm/ranch in Okla, and though his degree & main career was in health care, he does love the angus business, and is really good with all the embryos, genetics, pedigrees, all that stuff. I myself grew pretty fond of those pretty black calves. So fun that you 'get' all of that! We have alot of ranching friends that get it...and alot of friends who DON'T. That's fun to know!
Thanks for the note. And, meant to say, congrats on the success of Cedarmont...our grown married twin girls LOVE it for their babies/and 3 yr old! Hope our paths cross sometime in Nashville in 2009...PC
Hi Mike, Sue... I used to write for Benson, back when John Barker was there, and Andrea Whitaker. I've always commuted to Nashville, never lived there fulltime...Paul & I still live in Denton, Tx. Tell Sue hi, it's been a long time. Best to you guys...Paula Carpenter
Nice form in your profile pic. I believe my wife, Amy Wilson, used to work with you at Benson years ago. We love to wakeboard and ski and we're always looking for other folks that like to as well. Maybe we can hook up on the lake some time soon. Well, I guess the season's about over. We should definitely do it next year. Thanks for creating the Cedarmont Kids video's. Our son loves them.
