Quoted From A Fellow Traveler:

Life is short, Break the rules, Forgive quickly, Kiss slowly, Love truly, Laugh uncontrollably, And never regret anything that made you smile. Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we're here we should dance.

We've Moved

I am trying a new larger format for my pictures, I hope they don't take too long to load for you.

After three days, we have moved to here. Same park, different section which put us right on the lake.
We are now six miles out of Cody. We are close to town but far enough away to enjoy the solitude. Our Neighbors are from France and are here with their two teenage children for a twenty day holiday. The fly into Chicago and will depart from San Fransisco.
Now that we have moved to our camp on the lake, Casey can do her thing.

Our site.
A view from my chair, who's that in the water???
We had to take a look around Cody, this is the famous Irma Hotel that was built by Bill Cody.
Side street entrance to the hotel.
These bikes are registered with New Zealand plates, wow what a trip. I was hoping to talk to the riders but they weren't around.
Inside the hotel, I tried to get some pictures of the original interior.
The bar.
Dinning room.
On the other side of the street is the old movie house.

We also stopped at the Bill Cody Historical Center
Now this place is HUGE and there was no way that I could even come close to posting all the pic's I took so here are a few.
Coy in the uniform.
Some things of interest. A Dud Ranch!
There were many posters, here are a couple.

Annie Oakley
Good looking woman and she can shoot!
Bill Pickett, I remember hearing of him when I was a kid.
Bill Pickett
What is a Cowboy?
Cody the actor.
And they had to find his home and get it here.

Being delivered......wrong address?
They can't make up their minds on where to put the home.
Hmmmm, lets move it again!
Looks good here!
There is also a section in the Cody Center which is dedicated to Firearms. They had so many hand guns, rifles, and bullets, that I thought it was total overkill.
And it goes on and on.
There were some interesting firearms like this one.

Being a machinist at heart, this was a small but informative display of an Arms factory.
A couple of old engine lathes.
Some of this stuff is too familiar and I'm not that old. These machines were built to last like the old cars.
Wow, a 1905 Screw Machine.
She's a beauty!
This is a beauty.

Hoss Cartwright's Gun
I think it was a sad day when Dan Blocker passed away, he was the good guy of the cowboys.
Bat Masterson
Bat Masterson's Gun
TV Annie Oakley!
You remember the TV show Bonanza, don't you?
If your in Cody stop and see the Cody Center but it may take two days to see it all.
