Labor Day Holiday: in Cheyenne, we barbecued. Meanwhile, In Boise,
Mike & Kara target-practiced (Mike with a camera, Kara with ballistics). And speaking of
ballistics, Megan nailed a cottontail, accidentally, with a blithely tossed piece of gravel. Oops.

'Practicing her 2nd Amendment rights,' Mikey says
That's a big rifle.
Jeez. I want one!

Umm. Okay, she can handle that, too.

Rob Kelman has an infinite list of things to do (Only my wife has more
stuff on her list). This is one his many things... Ryan Anderson is lending us a capable hand.

Taylor had a bit of fun with his Uncle Dan, who is fond of pranks!
Our chubby pug Amos went missing. Eventually, he was located
at a house behind us, 1200 feet away. Idiot dog couldn't see our house!

It makes me wonder what Danny looked like!

One night I was puttering around in the garage when I spotted
a 5-inch tiger salamander waddling across the dry concrete floor.
Obviously, he was lost. After a photo session, I released him into one of our gardens.

"Call me Sal," he
said. "Got bugs?"
