I want and need to thank the wonderful folks at His Kids, especially Dodd, who have been so generous by providing us with Ranger Bill every week 24/7 so faithfully. And I want to thank each of you members of and visitors to this website. Your continued support and interest in Ranger Bill make this a very rewarding job. The numbers of hits both on  Blogger and on Facebook are very gratifying.

RB-155 Henry's History Lesson

Henry is having trouble memorizing dates and places for history class. Stumpy tells Henry to put himself into the history he is studying. Henry dreams he is part of a wagon train on the Oregon Trail in the 1840s approaching an unnamed river. Hostile Indians are waiting to ambush the pioneers at the river.

Stumpy's Joke Book

I am gathering all of Stumpy's jokes into one document. I am calling it Stumpy's Joke Book. If you remember a story with one or more of Stumpy's jokes in it, e-mail me and I will add it to the book, and I'll include your ID (e-mail, whatever) with that joke. Please be sure to mention which story the joke is in. I will be posting Stumpy's Joke Book as a document on our Facebook page.
I may also create an mp3 of all of these jokes so you can sit back and laugh with Stumpy.
Good joke hunting, everyone!

RB154 Ronnie's Bear

Henry runs a boys club at the grade school. He has assigned a nature study projects. The boys are to collect things from nature and do talks about them. Ornery little Ronnie Edwards wants to bring a bear to the meeting. Coincidentally, school janitor Sam thinks he spotted a bear. Ronnie couldn’t really have a bear – could he?

Ranger Bill - Knotty Pine Man of the Year

Rangers Bill Jefferson and Stumpy Jenkins Honored

Ranger Stumpy Jenkins was awarded the Lifetime Service Award from the Forest Service. Presenting the award were regional commander Colonel Joshua Anders and Knotty Pine's Chief Ranger Bill Jefferson. Stumpy has faithfully served the forest service here in Knotty Pine for over 40 years from his graduation from the Ranger Academy to the present. Stumpy has served under four chief rangers in that time, including the late Chief Ranger Jackson who died while fighting a forest fire.
After the award presentation to Ranger Stumpy, Mayor Ingalls surprised Ranger Bill with his own award, 2011 Knotty Pine Man of the Year. The mayor noted that this was the first time in Bill's career that he was truly speechless. Many of Big Pine's rangers were in attendance, including Bill's ward Henry Scott and close friend and fellow ranger Gray Wolf.
