Uncle Ernest was more like a big brother to me and loved to tease me all the time when I was a child. He loved to go to the cattle sales all over the panhandle. I enjoyed riding around with him. He would have a story about every ranch in top of New Mexico, Texas panhandle and Oklahoma. I enjoyed our drives and listening to the stories of our Hanna family.
