Wyoming Cowboy Hall of Fame, Part Two

I have to say that the induction ceremony for the Wyoming Cowboy Hall of Fame was bigger and more impressive than I expected.  This is only its third year of operation, and I can see that this will continue to grow.  They hope to purchase a building at some point, so fundraising and memberships plus auction items that day are all worthwhile.

They had some impressive food displays.

They had many tables full of cool stuff for the live and silent auction.

I spent a lot a money at the branded merchandise counter…

wchofHats, tshirts, scarves, vests, coats, baseball caps, wool caps, scarf slides, denim shirts, sweatshirts, camp chairs… and, no, I didn’t buy one of each.

pkThanks to P. K. for nominating Johnny in the first place.

The only problem I saw… was that in the big printed program and on the frame worthy large poster… it wasn’t Johnny’s photo AT ALL.  P.K. had nominated another local, B. B.  Somehow along the way, B.B.’s paperwork was lost, but B.B.’s photo was attached to Johnny’s bio.  Soooo… It tells all about Johnny, but the picture isn’t his!  We laughed, I mean, what could we do?  and we knew B. B. would get a kick out of it!  We just told Johnny we’d submit B. B.’s name next year, but attach a photo of Johnny to even things out.

At some point in the program, they listed one of the inductees as dying in 2003.  He went up to the announcer and laughingly told them he was still alive, and happy to accept his award! “Welcome back!” cried the announcer!

“See, Johnny, it could have been worse!  At least they didn’t think you were dead!”

  1. Perhaps the girls would like to submit a platter like that for the branding dinner(Ho ho).
    I felt bad about Johnny’s picture not being with his bio until I came to the inductee who was presumed dead! Loved the “Welcome back!”
    Reading this I sometimes feel like part of the family.

  2. Lovely photo of you and Johnny. And that food. Wow, especially the carved WY horse. Did anyone eat that? It sounds like a wonderful event Carol. Glad the journey over the Big Horns went OK despite the snow. Oh a reminder that winter is on her way. Hopefully more Fall colours first.
