A warm night in the heart of America watching the rodeo with my extended family.....a cool place for an Englishman brought up on john Wayne movies.

Little and large

Either my little boy has been helping build using his toy construction equipment or this is to scale and I accidently built a cottage 400ft high...if you knew me this wouldn't seem so unlikely.
