January 25, 2008 Bonus Blog Post
Last day in Cody. Had breakfast again with Lou Cady. Afterwards went to his house to look at my mother's belongings (I was kind of dreading this but it wasn't too bad). He feels guilty about giving away her clothes but I gave him permission to do it. He gave me several keepsakes of hers, including her apron and a Wyoming Sprinkler gimme cap she always wore. He also gave me three watercolors she did when they lived in Anacortes, Washington. Actually pretty sweet little Impressionistic numbers (I had no idea she ever painted). Evidently, my mom took a watercolor class, did three gems and quit after two weeks.

Gee, that sounds familiar.

While I was there, Daune Hagen, owner of the Fiddle Back Ranch near Meeteesie, called. He had driven in from Denver and the Denver Stock Show and got in at 10 last night. He said he hit bad ice west of Casper and barely made it through. It was 22 below in Shoshone. He's off again today, driving to his daughter's basketball game in Farsen (sp?). Such is the life of a parent in Wyoming, he told me with a laugh.

Speaking of basketball, I'm going to the Cody High School Gym tonight to see Preston Randoph play against the number one team in the state (Lowell, 10-0). I love high school basketball and am really looking forward to this. Preston is the cinematographer who shot the Pike Landusky footage and the Old Cowtown PSA we posted last year. Very talented boy. He's won numerous state film awards and you can see his work at:
