A Celebration of Western Movies… Pardner!

Early Spring?

Yay or Nay ?





Only Balzac Billy (below) claims to have seen his shadow –
which would signal another six weeks of Winter.


However, MFW noticed some suspicious things about Billy
that bring his credibility into question:

Firstly – although you can clearly see Billy’s shadow –
suspect some photoshopping here! Yes!

Secondly – looking even closer –  Billy appears
to be a man in gopher suit!
(I think the red jacket 
gave him away) 

Thirdly – can we really believe what a giant gopher 
who lives in a manure pile says?

Busted Billy!
We’re going with an Early Spring.

    I think you are right and as for that manure if you look really closely you can actually see the face of a buffalo there–so it may actually be a clue to the kind of manure that it is.

      I believe you’re correct Brother. What are they trying to pull here!
      Actually Billy’s annual event has become a bit of a tradition around here. They have a pancake breakfast and make it into a bit of a fun gathering. Not sure how they determine their prediction though. ??

  2. You mean … I can’t trust the gopher? I’m crushed!

      Well I don’t know it gophers do the shadow thing or not … but this guy looks a little shady.
