Just because there is snow on the roof doesn't mean there is no fire in the furnace! :lol:

77? Wow. He's quite a guy. :shock:

Have you ever attended Basque Days in Buffalo, Wy? It's all about sheep, sheepherders, lamb food and sheep owners.
It's quite a time, I have heard. Mr. FH's brother was married to a Basque girl and they know how to have fun.
There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn't true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.

The Basques are tough, especially the ones from down under. When do you start lambing Jody?

Enough of this 'over the hill talk' about someone 77 years old! I've got a couple months of it left, and CAN still keep up with a very lively three year old great-grand girl.........for an hour or two, anyway!

But I won't be bragging about that tomorrow evening, I fear. Going to watch her during a big community benefit party while her parents are involved in the events. Several amateur basket ball games, silent and live auctions of donated items, other games, fun and food all afternoon. Best thing about it is the person it is for is doing well in rehab after a stroke at way too young an age.
