Before and After


Today was exciting.  The doctor removed the cast and replaced it with a walking boot.  Although it looks a bit like Frankenstein's shoe, at least I can start to walk again.  Yeeeeee Hawwwww!

Shopping In Cody


Picture 1:  Today Julia and I went to town to pick up a few necessities.  While there, we found this pick-up (A Wyoming Winnebago) that was cheap.  We figured that we could save rent by buying it and moving in.  What do you think? 

Picture 2:  On the way home I couldn't resist.  I just had to stop and take this picture of these antelope and the Big Horn Mountains.  What a view only five miles from home.

Cody Canyon and Buffalo Bill Dam (see individual discriptions below pictures)





Picture 1.  Is near the mouth of the canyon about five miles east of Cody on the way to Yellowstone.  I like the tree to the right of the boulder near the bottom of the picture. It's growing around the boulder.  

Picture 2.  Bill Cody Dam in the small cement structure to the right of the half mile long tunnel.  Bill Cody was the prototype for Hoover Dam and was the tallest dam of its type in the world at the time.  I's 70 feet wide by 325 feet tall.  During tourist season you can walk out on the dam.  Sorry about the picture being a bit out of focus, it best illustrated the setting. 

Picture 3.  The half mile long tunnel from the inside.  It is one of three tunnels in a row.  

Picture 4.  The south rim at the mouth of Cody Canyon.  

Picture 5.  Close up of the cliff on the right from picture 4.

Tyler And His Lego Trebuchet

video
Tyler was looking for something to do this afternoon so we decided to look at trebuchets (French Catapults) on You Tube.  That's when Tyler decided to build one on his own with his Lego's.  It's cool.  Take a look and enjoy.

Julia's Piano Performance

video
Once a year, Julia's music teacher at school has her students perform a piece of music they are working on at a local  college (Northwest Community College in Powell, WY).  Julia's choice was a piece called "Silly Struttn'".  As a parent, I was proud of her performance. Give it a listen.
