My doctor asked me to cut back to one cup of coffee---No problem! You should see my new booze cup.
With gas prices already over $4 all over town, I am suddenly very glad we walk and take the bus every were. Although I do miss the days of having my own pick-up
Above is today's picture of the day go ahead you can say it-----Wahoo!
This takes us to Big Horn, Wyoming. My home town. This, as the sign says is the Mercantile. I believe they have ruined the inside of the building, with "progress" but the outside still looks exactly the same as I recall. Complete with the horse tie up posts out front.
I also believe they ruined the old schools. The new buildings are huge and look a lot like a prison. The inside has the same feel also. With no character, and every room and hall way looking the same.
One of the few things I regret about leaving Wyoming is that a few of us classmates recalled burring a time capsule when we were in middle school. So, years ago. We are even pretty sure we know were the capsule is now, and that all the construction did not alter the burial sight. Anyways I left town and the state before we got the project rolling. We were the mighty Big Horn Rams, and I do believe the best class in years was "97" I pause while you try to figure out how old I am now. The above picture shows our mascot and an award the entire district recently received. Ugly building, good teachers I guess. Classes have grown I am sure, but our class was the biggest in awhile with 27 students. My mother went to the same school, a few years before I did, and they had 4 students. I believe the best part of the district, was the fact that we had Fridays off. Longer school daze each day, were well worth it!
With the un-attractiveness of the new buildings, I was very glad to see this mural. This picture only shows a small portion of the huge picture. It was in the High School across from the gym as long as I can recall.
In last thoughts, for now, I again will say another blog post is coming tonight. A picture filled post that is mostly a re-cap of the last week or so events. The other day I had coffee with a good buddy of mine. While in Wyoming, I could never find anyone to go to coffee with, and I missed it a lot. Although I believe the disscusions and thoughts seemed deeper the more coffee that was consumed. Anyways, my friend and I had parted ways for almost a year. And I was more than a little concerned about that morning with him. I figured that no one would deny free coffee and offered to buy his brew. Short story shorter, it went very well, and I am overly glad that we are good again.
