"There is nothing so American as our national parks. The scenery and wildlife are native. The fundamental idea behind the parks is native. It is, in brief, that the country belongs to the people, that it is in process of making for the enrichment of the lives of all of us. The parks stand as the outward symbol of this great human principle." Franklin D. Roosevelt

Howdy Pardner!

Howdy Pardner! This post comes straight to you from the Buffalo Bill Cody Museum in beautiful downtown Cody. There is an Internet terminal here, and since no one was waiting to use it I decided to make a post. The weather continues to be rainy and cold. There were actually snowflakes Friday morning at 6:00 that stayed on the ground for a while in Canyon. At about 9:00 huge flakes came down. As beautiful as it was we all had to let out a long, drawn-out sigh. Summer, summer, where are you? So on a overcast and chilly day there is nothing better to do but to check out my next museum collection here at the BBC Museum, which is the Native American section. So off I go, ready to see and learn more about the local Native American culture. Oh, next week there is a Pow Wow here in Cody, which I would like to attend.
