To Infinity and Beyond...oh, wait, that was Buzz Lightyear...um, Charge!?

This guy turned out to look so much like Teddy Roosevelt -- who can resist calling him a "Rough Rider" but he's wearing a "Marshall" badge?

The usual junk...with a bit of skill at the saw getting the angle for the brush tail just right! Sandpaper saddle, license plate chaps Illinois (of course), strainer hat...

Donating him for raffle to benefit the Caring Place during Saturday, March 28th Georgetown Citywide Garage Sale.

too. I guess I really like all of it. lol Posted: 7:45 pm on February 21st
