Summer Has Returned

I was asked by a reader to go back to the bolder print.  I don’t mind.  He says it is a lot easier for him to read, so I am thinking there may be more people with the same problem.

I guess summer is back in full swing.  It was 95* yesterday, and at noon it is already in the 80’s today.  I knew it was to good to last very long.

Instead of taking our walk around the Park, like we normally do, we walked up and down Main street in Sheridan.  There is really only about 5 or 6 blocks that are made for strolling.  There are all kinds of little shops, all geared toward tourists.  You know how I feel about those.  :)  We did wander in to one shop to look at hats for Don, but when we saw the price tags, we bolted for the door.  They were in the hundreds, and they were on sale.

I really wanted to get some pictures of the sculptures all up and down this part of Main street.  They are by various artists and not all pertain to the West, but most do.

I have no idea why Writer would let me enlarge some of the pictures, but not the others, but you can still click on them and they will pop up larger.  When I tried to use the same size enlargement, as for the other pictures, the picture would go clear across the screen.  I might have to give Picasa another try.

Sheridan is a pretty little town and everyone we have met is very friendly and helpful.  It would be worth your time to visit here.

Stay safe… :)

For some tips on picture sizing, Pidge, you might want to check out a blog I wrote a while back:

I try to never go near the tourist shops. $100+ on sale for a hat is a bit much, unless you're a cowboy and need a good hat. I don't know, is a $100 hat better than a $25 hat?
