In my last posting, Sam Shakouri tossed a challenge at me to have me carve another boot from one of the remaining stumps.
I tried my best and played it again, Sam! Hope you like it!

Regards to my Aussie and New Zealand LJers. They must be enjoying some fine weather because this morning in Calgary, Alberta we are in a blizzard! Ugh!
