He looks kind of prehistoric but he has an important job . . . protecting these black Angus cattle from coyotes. He's also pretty friendly.
Got any carrots?
Back to work.
By the way, Gus and his herd live just a mile or so down the road from this guy and his companions.

An abandoned church north of Havre, Montana. I've driven past this old church dozens of times over the years and I must say it's weathered well.
The above photo was taken at 8:15 a.m. and the following photo was taken at 6:16 p.m. later that same day. It always looks good.

Retlaw, Alberta May 2018. Nothing really wrong with winter so far. I would just prefer it to be over.
Been a little busy. For some reason I signed up for a course that will be three hours every Wednesday night starting next week until the end of March. I really do not need to do this however on the other hand I might learn something.

Stone buildings are not common in rural Alberta. You usually find them in places where eastern Europeans settled. This is in a place called Barich, Alberta. The only buildings here are the hall, a church across the road, and a nearby farm. The hall was built in 1933, was eventually left to deteriorate, then was restored. The walls are stone, the roof is wood.

Merry Christmas from Lamont County, Alberta.
The photos are of Saint James Russo Greek Catholic Orthodox Church near Mundare, Alberta. A few days ago there was a young couple (Michael and Andrea) clearing the snow from one side of the church with a Bobcat for Christmas service on January 7. Michael was kind enough to let me into the church which seats about fifty people. It's a beauty! He also told me that a young priest has moved here from Ukraine and is taking the services in about ten of the country churches. That's not a story you hear every day.

This former school building is just west of Newton, Manitoba. The Curtis West school was closed in 1969 and used as a community building. Now it appears to be empty. It has a small plaque commemorating the school.
