About Me Monday-Moving On

The Christmas before I turned twelve, my family moved from Quincy, WA to Kanab, Utah. My uncle Steve bought a hotel and restaurant and asked my dad to manage it for him. Turns out the hotel, Parry's Lodge is the same one the movie stars from the old western movies stayed. Whit Perry started the motel while his brother got the movies to start filming in southern Utah. Some of those movie stars include Ronald Reagan, John Wayne, Tim Conway and James Garner. My dad Is a huge John Wayne fan and so John Wayne became the main attraction at the Lodge. You can actually stay there in the same room as some of the stars!
