Stéphane hit an antelope on the way home from Rawlins
Dan came to visit – charbonnade and museum.
Guest house progression – more wires and pipes;
Trip to Menards, let’s pick out some lights!
and more: we need flooring, and cabinets – a fan!
Tiglet retired; welcome Eagle to the clan:
she’s white and she’s peppy, has minimal miles
plus she’s cute, has a moonroof and Volkswagen style.
Throwing balls down the lanes at our alley in Lander-
Silver Spurs – super retro; fun times we’ll remember
Family hikes on “our” trail system right ‘cross the street
Slaying monsters galore, every one that we meet.
And then Neni arrived and the boys got to choppin’
all the wood every day, sun or snow, with no stoppin’
Peronis at five, now the evening’s begun
With cooking and laughter and having much fun.
Chess-master Jürg teaches Hugo the moves
Hugo shows Neni his yodeling grooves
There was buffalo jail break: “Big Joe” in our yard
Massive and hairy and breathing quite hard
Good times all around at the Home On The Range
Good food and good company- zero complaints
(Except one, and we hope that one day very soon
Our dear Captain Hefti will no longer commute
We anticipate summer may be our reprieve
and we hope that by then good old Rawlins he’ll leave
and report to Lander base, just right down the road
Time will tell, we shall see how this story unfolds.
We have had a productive year so far filled with school, family visits, and lots of working and playing outdoors. We’re still settling in here and have a lot of painting and hanging-up-of-things-on-walls to do. But we love it here. We look forward to finishing up the guest house and hosting lots of friends and family this upcoming year!
