It's now past midnight, so even though it's really tomorrow it still feels like today.

Yester-to-day I attended the 10th Annual North Dakota Cowboy Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony in Medora. Of the six inductees one of them was my great-aunt-in-law, Evelyn Neuens, who is 93. Another one was Chief Sitting Bull, who, of course, has been dead for over a century. The President of the N.D. Cowboy Hall of Fame is a Native American named Phil Baird. Thus, he's savvy about bridging cultures. There was a lot of drumming and gift giving by various North Dakota tribes.

Here's a photo of Phil and Evelyn ceremoniously cutting the barb wire in honor of the inaugural day of the North Dakota Cowboy Hall of Fame.
