Views of "The Cabin"
the cabin I still dream about trying to find (See blog about cabins Sept. 19)...Top two views, under construction, including Dad's North Light window.
Third pix, in the wintertime. Fourth pix, Brother Jerry inside with his guns drawn, in from of Dad's art on the wall. Notice Dad liked nudes. I grew up with this kind of art all over the house. By the way, that is a real buffalo skull, and the hole in his head was made by a Sharp's 50 caliber breach loading rifle. Fifth pix, Terry cutting wood. Look at that blonde hair!
