Good one, Ray. I can’t snow you. Or buffalo you, either!
Hunter, amazing, isn’t it?
Bruce, those smiles do say “happy family here,” don’t they? That’s his wife Beatrice Fox Fairbanks, and sons — Justin in the tree, Grant on the buffalo’s head, and David, Jonathan and Virgil on the back.

After reading your post on Arvad Fairbanks, I did a little reading about him. He studied art in New York and Paris. Got a doctorate in Art and was a professor at the University of Michigan. He was also commissioned to sculpt statues of individuals from Washington, Wyoming and North Dakota that are in the Statuary Hall in the Capitol building in Washington DC. What a gifted artist!
I bet his “snowmen” he built with his kids put all the other fathers in the neighborhood to shame.
