Miller had a brag on th' Beave . . . . seems
he has given his "all" for Sertoma.

We have another work
project coming up this Saturday, the 17th in
Loveland. We will be finishing the
corral fencing . . . just a matter of cutting
to size and nailing 2 x 8s to vertical poles.
You know, a fence.
We started this project several weeks ago, and
had to stop to let the people in charge prep
the corral a little more. EZ in and out.
Coffee, donuts, Bar-b-Q afterwards.

operates out of Cheyenne AND Greeley. I
think it's called "Who gives a shit?" NO . .

jackass . . . . NO, that's not it either.
Damn. Guess you'll just have to ask him. :)
