  1. Temp 66. Brilliant blue skies. On the way to Helena MT to geocache. Saw a lovely glossy black long haired kitty at Tiver Gardens who let us love on him. I needed that kitteh fix.
  2. Yea for Miss Lucy's first day of proto-retirement! Exciting times indeed. Dr Frootcake's budget passed and no civilians were hurt in the process. Truly a win for hard work and dedication. I'm sure you all don't want to hear I'm in a long sleeved shirt, jeans, and a hooded flannel shirt and am just comfortable. We're also at 5500' elevation๐Ÿ˜ฎ. I have already discovered that sucking for air (Butte has HILLS) whilst masked isn't easy but can be done. I'm sorry the raccoon is winning. I too like to be kind to nature but I think my patience would have given out by now. Welcome home Battle. Stay safe everyone and wear your mask!
  3. Hang in there Spirit--you will survive and have a nice new floor. After three lovely days of geocaching with good friends from a very nice campground in Minot ND we are now on the road again. Tonight is Glasgow MT, tomorrow night Great Falls MT, then four nights in Butte MT (a really funky place) and into Glacier (or right outside the west entrance to be specific) the Fourth of July and back in the camper. The Blackfeet Nation has decided it will not open its lands this summer at all so there will be no entering Glacier National Park from the East. This will be interesting to be sure. Stay safe everyone! Speaking of which, Miss Carol Ann, are you going back to your school with all its devastatingly casual approaches/attitudes to the pandemic? Been thinkin' of ya.
  4. Ignore weird no quote please. Poor poor Zeke--that sounds way too painful for such a youngun.
  5. I bet a nice local garden center would have local-friendly recommendations for plantings CA. Interesting. I never have a problem with eating my fuds. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ
  6. We're heading to Glacier National Park. We will be paranoid careful I guarantee you. We were heading to Billings first to see one of DH's numerous cousins. Just got a call from them saying the wife's mother will have surgery Monday and wife's aunt and uncle and the three adult kids taking care of them have all come down with COVID 19 so we're not heading to Billings anymore ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ. DH is busy figuring what Plan Z will be.
  7. Good morning troops. Linus and Jazz are now in the caring competent hands of their spa/resort and we get on the road tomorrow--assuming we survive today of course. Yesterday was the Horrible Day so we should be ok. House is always so empty without them. ๐Ÿ˜ฅ
  8. COOK fresh garden peas? NOOOOO The sacrilege! The infamy! The sheer wrongness! Fresh peas are to be eaten raw straight out of the pod and their marvelousness savored knot murdered by cooking. *shudders*
  9. Well push has finally come to shove and it's time to pack my two clothing satchels for Glacier. I have my much-annotated list of notes in one hand and am groping for my energy with the other. ๐Ÿ˜‡ Fathers are an increasingly interesting topic to me. Mine died 72 years ago; I was only 5 and have virtually no memories of him. The older I get the more I feel that void. Interesting. I also never knew 3 of my 4 grandparents and have just a few memories of the 4th. (Both Daddy and Mom married comparatively late in [reproductive] life). I realize it is what it is but I can't help thinking sometimes what it would have been like to have had them all be a factor in my life. Mom's been gone for 32 years, my sister for about 30, and my brother hasn't spoken to me since I settled Mom's small estate ๐Ÿ˜ฎ. If you possibly can, don't agree to be Executor. ๐Ÿ™„ And I'm not sure where that pity party came from! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ OK, onward with life or, to be more specific, packing.
  10. Huffington Post has a great article this morning called The Corona Virus Doesn't Care that We Are Bored with It. https://www.huffpost.com/entry/the-coronavirus-doesnt-care-that-were-bored_n_5eebbc0dc5b6d9234ce7b1b7 I have found I need to give myself a dopeslap now and then to remind myownself that this is going to be a longgggggg haul and we're just in the beginning. I (evidently) threw myself a pity party for one yesterday and seem to have that out of my system for a while.
  11. All day. Definitely. You were totally and completely here all day. I have never figured out what's with guys. They can seem like a perfectly functioning individual and then in an instant they turn into a sh*t for brains stranger.
  12. Hardy and David's pears will totally spoil you for any other pears ever. They used to have something they called Mavericks which were the less than perfect shape or colored ones. Less expensive and just as good but I haven't seen them in ages. ๐Ÿ˜ข
