Paul's Companion

My mother has a photo of Babe the blue ox, Paul's companion back when the cement monument used to be mounted on an old Ford truck and used for parades. It sits in an old frame in a cabinet in her home in Bemidji. Now Babe is permanently installed next to his faithful master Paul. I will see if I can borrow and scan it.

Paul Bunyan
