The love of the ranch and their heritage has had a profound effect on the Flood sisters. Today, along with their children, they manage the ranch in their yin and yang style.  Spare time is spent with grandchildren passing on stories of the old ranch days, teaching them to drive the 1960s Land Rovers, quail hunting, and hosting Santa Maria style BBQs.
