There are prairie dogs all over the Ingalls Homestead in De Smet, SD. There are also Garter snakes all over the Ingalls Homestead, but we'll save those for another time.
Butterfly tried and tried (a la Mary and Laura) to sneak up on one.
She cornered this fellow behind the school house.
She gloated all the way home!

Then: Children sat silently row by row, and did their work.
Now: Tiger reclines on the sofa to do his math.
Then: Teachers taught using their brains and a text book.
Now: "Does this come with a CD-ROM?" I ask.
Then: The young 'uns milked 3 cows and plowed the back forty before school every morning.
Now: Ba ha ha ha ha...!!! I'd pay good money to see that!
Then: Boys ran outside hootin' and hollerin' like wild animals when school was over.
Now: Some things never change.

Here is the low down.
Tiger was the Crucifer. He carried the Cross. No one was injured or impaled. Good news!
Butterfly read the First Reading. When she came to the word Rephibim she substituted, "Uh, I don't know," then continued on.
Our priest turned purple. A delightful color.
Sal played Bach's Cello Suite #1 on accoustic guitar. It was beautiful. When he got up to return to the pew, I realized he was IN HIS SOCKS. He had kicked off his shoes and F.O.R.G.O.T.T.E.N.
