Fame and Infamy

As we predicted, yesterday was an absolutely gorgeous day and we did get to go for lots of hiking, as shown by Cheoah, Kodiak and Rusty:


But, we also got to meet a celebrity.  Our hu-dad told us to be quiet and not to “squeal like a pig.”  Huh?


P.S. – Actually, we mentioned Cowboy once before when we talked about his pet squirrel.

    I have never been to your neck of the woods, but I bet you’re more famous that the cowboy.

    At least you should be.

    And here we thought you were the celebrities. Glad you got some good hiking in.

    Woos, the OP Pack

    John and Kelly are kinda icked out by that guy. Kelly has been to Raybun Gap where they filmed that movie. She said it was kinda scary.

    Glad you made it out alive.


    Ps. My nickname from time to time is pigggy. I think I would have kept that to myself
