  1. Sundance is such a fine name, and it looks like he wore it well. Thank you for this lesson, John. You're a good pal. :-)

  2. Love these old portraits. They are so detailed and amazing.

    Some projects have already been started and built in the neighbourhood yet the high rise in the distance still not going up. Not sure why as they sold all the units long ago and the crane has been there for months. Any building in your neighbourhood?

  4. Sundance looks nice and colorful. I've read the book, The Trail of Tears.

  5. I read the Blackfeet were fierce warriors, but he looks pretty peaceful.
