But This In NOT A SAD STORY (Not At All)



I do not think that I will EVER be able to thank Every One. Though, this is my attempt to try.



In Fact – This Is A Story About A Dedicated Community And People With REAL Heart



The people of Dubois, Wyoming (and around the globe) have been so caring, thoughtful and kind.

If these fine folks had not been around – or could care less, I never would have been able to re-open.



Just the other day, I was able to hang up the Marlow’s Fly Shop Sign – one more time. It really was a great feeling.


Here is one of those Great People – Leon Sanderson


Marlow's Fly Shop Sign Going Back UP.

Leon Sanderson took time out of his busy day to be there when we hung up the Marlow’s Fly Shop Sign. We rescued this sign from the Fire. Cool!
