Dignity and more...............

 When we went to Rapid City to the Stock Show in Feb we stopped to see the Dignity Statue at the Chamberlain rest stop.  She is well worth the stop.
 Looking west towards the river she is looking to the east.
 Here is a link that tells more about her . http://www.inforum.com/4117594-dignity-celebrated-south-dakotas-skyline
 Of course she is taller than me:)
 We stayed with our friends Gary and Paula there's always lots of deer in the neighborhood.

 We spotted one with a tracking necklace on!
 On our way home.
 The guys tried their hand at ice fishing a few times and only caught one small fish. Good job Lucas!!

 Johnny is back in the sheep business bottle lamb and bred ewes that should be lambing any time.
 My aunt and uncle would be so happy to see sheep in their barn again.

 We have had a few nice days for a walk. This time I remembered to take the camera for a few pictures. The fall calves don't know what to think of me.
They will be getting weaned soon. They look plenty big enough to be on their own..............JMF.

Dignity is amazing and beautiful. And even spectacular at night.

Love the critter photos as always. Makes me miss the lambs a little bit. We ran about 750 ewes for years, so we had LOTS of lambs. And always quite a few bottle lambs and calves this time of year it seemed.

What a beautiful statue! I've never heard of before but it's lovely. My fiancé would love to go there. He's obsessed with deer. Thanks for linking up to #fridayfrivolity! Xx
