and David & Jane from England

Some wranglers dancing on the bar
Is that a guest up there?

Recognize anybody?

Michal had a red shirt that night?

Oh my gosh!

What a nut!

Nobody fell . . .

Rodeo night we stayed at the ranch
rather than go with the others
to Steamboat Springs
(that's Landon in the kitchen)

Our dinner wranglers seemed to have
come direct from the hottub!

Jane delivers dessert

Then we had the special treat of
a ride to the dump in the custom
ranch truck to see the bears

See the bear?

Perhaps we could come back in winter

Back at the saloon, Landon
played some tunes. Then we played
some sort of a rude card game

Wonderful week!
