Friday night, James and I went to the Foster Ranch for dinner. We were invited by James's uncle, George Beggs. rough his father, James is a King Ranch family member. He is a part of Beggs Cattle Com- pany through his mother, Judy Beggs Clement, who is one of George's sisters. (I adore his other sister, too, Janie Beggs.) I am happy I got at least one good shot of George that night. He is an elusive subject. I snuck in a quick shot while he was in mid conversation. ere is a good chance he didn't want me to take his photo, but he is a great cowboy who runs a legendary operation, and I am obliged to acknowledge that in my work. Although this friendly dinner at the Fosters was not an official part of the Remuda itinerary, it was one of the highlights of the weekend for me. We sat on that patio under the stars while our steaks were being prepared. A dog sniffed around the grill. In addition to George and James, there were four other close friends of George. eir history as friends and busi- ness associates was clearly deep. ey would have entire conver- sations with just a few words, but by the end of dinner, there was banter and friendly smack- talking all the way around. OUTSIDE THE ARENA On October 6, the largest crowd in the history of the Return to the Remuda gathered inside the gorgeous new arena at the Four Sixes. ere's so much history there, and all of us from King Ranch were excited to be a part of it. 74 L ANDREP ORT.COM e LandReport | TEX AS 20 19
