|Important message...from the IGA in Buffalo, WY...|
|Des showing his approval...Kazak!!|
|Gary thought this was one of the funniest things he'd seen in a while...please take it all in!|
Gary stayed by his phone, listening to 11 of the 12 innings on our first night, freezing and cursing and worrying and wondering. How excited he was the next day to find out the outcome. And how excited am I to constantly hear, discuss, and contemplate the next baseball game! (Yes, as Emmett would say, I am using sarcasm).
Our first outing was to the Crazy Horse Memorial, which was open (since it doesn't take federal or state funding). I had no idea about this place; of course Gary did. The picture below is for posterity...we all wondered...will it be finished in our lifetime? The boys can come back in 20 years and see how far the statue has come. And so we explained the proud history of broken treaties and mass murder of Native Americans.
|Here's what the Crazy Horse Memorial is to look like once completed|
