There's a Story Here

These bison have nothing to do with the story of Miracle, the sacred white buffalo born in Wisconsin in 1994. Except they're in Wisconsin, too. You can read about Miracle here.

There are lots of pictures and you can learn why the white buffalo was so important to the Sioux and other tribes across the country. 

I stopped by the road on my way home from Door County earlier this summer and got this picture of these locals taking it easy during the hot part of the day. [I had no idea they might be from New Orleans.]

These buffalo are not too far from where Miracle lived her short life in Janesville. Gimme a minute or two to read up on all this stuff, okay? Chew your cud or something. Actually, click on that previous link and you will know almost as much as I do.

And I can watch TV or something.

"Louisiana officials gathered today to review their response to Hurricane Katrina and to assess whether additional steps are needed to protect the citizens from future disasters."

As a child, one of my favorite TV shows was Rin-Tin-Tin.  My favorite episode was the one about the white buffalo, where Sargeant Masters sang a song called appropriately, "The White Buffalo".  You can see the lyrics and download the song here.  http://thinhippo.com/steve/whitebuffalo.html

Thank you for the large print and giant photos. We like to look at pictures. It keeps us from having to think too hard. See what kind of spell you've cast over Remo?
