Please leave your title, caption, or Charlie-commentary in the comment section of this post and you will instantly be in the running to WIN!  This week’s prize is an 11×12 print of Inside Joke (click here to see it) which is the result of some sort of inside joke my beloved printer-man played on me last week because I did not order it!  But found it in my large envelope of prints when I got back home.  And on my receipt.  So now one of you gets to win it!

    Hi Shreve….While I don’t have a caption for this photo…..ones I was thinking of have sort of already been used….I did want to tell you that this pic reminds me of an old print my grandpa used to have. It was of a collie with a lamb at his feet, in the snow, and the collie is howling as if to say to the cowboys you forgot one. All Charlie needs is that lamb at his feet and it would pratically be the same.

    I want to wish you and Charlie a wonderful birthday! Three and thirty three…there must be something there!!

    Well, OK, here’s a caption…..Wheeee…it’s fun to be three!! LOL
    and maybe “Snow Song in Sepia” (snow song as in swan song) :)

  202. Peggy's Place Says:

    Oh, say, can you see, by the dawn’s early light,
    What so proudly we hail’d at the twilight’s last gleaming?
    Whose broad stripes and bright stars, thro’ the perilous fight,
    O’er the ramparts we watch’d, were so gallantly streaming?
    And the rockets’ red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
    Gave proof thro’ the night that our flag was still there.
    O say, does that star-spangled banner yet wave
    O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

    I saw a Coyote with elk leg in his jaw
    walkin through the streets of Wyoming in the rain.
    He was lookin for the place called Eli & Shreve’s, gonna get a big dish of gluten free chow mein.
    Aaahoo, Coyote of Wyoming

    He doesn’t know why
    He howls to the sky.
    He only knows that he must.
    And that no other feeling
    or release can compare
    to a soleful call
    that cuts
    through the cold winter air.

  267. Mimi Says:

    Shreve, I send you and your boy the warmest of birthday greetings! Thank you for sharing your life, talent and remarkable sojourn into the heart of Wyoming and quite frankly into ours as well.

  268. Steve H Says:

    Nothing clever — I just know that that is one sweet song. I love listening to, and occasionally getting to watch, the songfests around here (East Bay hills of CA) of Charlie’s cousins.

    I submitted my entry Monday morning. After awhile I did not see it in the list, so I tried to resubmitt it. A screen message said that I had submitted a duplicate entry.

    Figuring that there was a large backlog, I kept checking the list, but I still don’t see it.

    It was from Cindy and the entry was “Half-tone.”

    Sometimes Charlie and your pictures say things best expessed in more universal languages that human words. I think this is one of those times.

    Nor could I title the sound of a litter of coyote pups trying out their voices around the den on a summer evening. Its a language of the heart.

    But what a happy birthday song!

  288. Marguerite Says:

    I am listening to an opera on NPR and it seems like the male voice is coming from Charlie!
