"Grandpa paid my Uncle Jim’s hospital bill when he was born in Jackson Hole, by winning the bronc riding at a rodeo. He literally left my Grandma at the hospital, went to the rodeo, and came back to the hospital with payment in full! Photo: My Grandpa Moss, at a rodeo somewhere in Wyoming. " Eileen Phillips
