Hey Guys, great job & thanks for the photos. Brings back many fond memories & is a real bright spot during some dreary times. Only sad thing about it, is it's a reminder of just how fast time goes by.

Jim

We have a picture of my grandpa holding a team of horses very similar to the pics that mntbugy posted. One horse was grey and the other was black. Their names were Dick and N***r, times were different back then.

What's wrong with Niger? It's a country and a river. When I was a kid my friend had a black cat named Niger. Should have seen the look on the receptionist s face when she checked them out. Details matter.
