Not Babies Anymore

Look who is growing up!  They seem to have doubled in size since I left on vacation.

Perhaps that’s a bit of an exaggeration, but still…

One is definitely a rooster.

I only have seven of the original eleven left.  Let’s hope these stay smart and alert!


Enter Ghosts

The afternoon was spent with grandkids, cheesecloth, and sticky hands!


An afternoon catching up with friends from the past… We all worked at Girl Scout National Center West here in Ten Sleep.  Maybe I won’t say how many years ago, but it *has* been a while!  They were great and wonderful times.



This time of year, that word, “harvest”, applies to so many different things.

Part of it is harvesting some minor money off of all the hunters that have descended upon Ten Sleep.  Our Hunter Fest is full of raffles and small tables of wares… including the library.  We sold our neck/head scarves and raffle tickets.

Then a few hours later… we were putting on the Harvest Dinner.  It’s our big fundraiser for the Ten Sleep Ambulance and Library plus our raffle and live auction.  I *did* win a couple items there for once.  Yay, me!  It’s a busy, busy evening, and I came home and deflated quickly!  Somehow, believe it or not… I totally spaced taking any photos… I can’t believe that!

I did run out to the edge of town and grab some quick pics of all the elk that are bedded down in a field beside the LDS church.  They’re pretty safe there with the highway on one side and houses and church on the others.  I’m sure many a hunter was just beside himself, wanting to harvest a few of them.
