  1. What you don't know about me won't hurt you. Most probably know more than they need to about my life. It's OK, as I am old.
  2. Generating more stories for the nurses. Go for it!
  3. I bought an old gooseneck trailer built on a trailer house frame for cheap at an auction. After reflooring and raising the bed above the wheels it has worked well for hauling hay. Even brought a load the 150 miles from Billings. Probably spent $1,000 for modifications, but had folks offer me that much for it after I was finished. Now, I've used it for many years, so I think it was a good investment. Still using it today.
  4. Our wind finally slacked off yesterday evening, but it was wicked most of the day yesterday, with gusts over 50mph.
  5. No question, I would go! At this time in her life, I would honor her request. That is just me, and I have made difficult decisions in the past, and opted to cherish the pleasant memories.
  6. I awake when I awake, generally to singing by the pups.
  7. We agree! College basketball has always been the main sport in our family. We attended schools with poor or so so football teams but with very good basketball teams with some all American players. Thus, March is a happy time in our household.
  8. Not bad in town, but it is drifting bad enough in the county that they have cancelled some functions in town. https://milescitylive.com
  9. My wife says: "Great pictures of nice dogs." I agree!
  10. Frontend loaders probably made quick work of the job, just like after a parade. Cars probably picked up the rest. You don't want to follow too closely behind a semi loaded with cattle going up an off ramp on the interstate.

  13. He came and performed in Miles City a few years ago. Always liked this one.
  14. I think my wife has some, but I wear wool from about October to late March or early April.
  15. What percentage polyester in the underwear? That may be the problem.
  16. Continue to keep you all in our thoughts and prayers.
  17. Are you bird watching? You could see some new ones down there. I may have missed it, but did you fly into Austin? If so the country west of there, the Edwards Plateau is some of the best country Texas has to offer. It is good sheep and goat country. My wife has relatives in Llano.
  18. You know there is a reason why trees grow where they do. Like here, they grow at a bit higher elevation, in draws, and along waterways and around lakes. Note the common factor in all of those scenarios is more effective water than is found on the open prairies in your Province and in Montana in addition to variation in soil types that occur in those different environments. As water becomes more scarce folks will have to decide the importance of trees in lieu of other needs. Let's hope they make the right decision far enough in advance to be effective. Planting adapted species of trees in a given environment is a first step in the right direction.
  19. Beautiful day here, but it is currently 9F.
  20. That, or I did not give a damn whether it did or not.
  21. I admire his effort. I just wish I had the ability and patience to tackle such repair jobs. This throw away society really bothers both of us. We cringe when folks try to sell us something other than the quality product we are looking for, and followup with a comment,"Well you have a warranty." Poorer quality stuff always seems to breakdown at the most inconvenient time.
  22. I kidded her mom after she won the local meet, that I expected to see balloons on their gate and streamers on their feed truck. Mom informed me Robin was pretty low key and just happy to have done well. The whole family is very modest and hard working. Her brother was state champion one or two years.

  24. Sophomore and made All-American at the wrestling meet. Young lady that sometimes sells me hay. https://www.milescitystar.com/news/local/robin-leidholt-takes-eighth-at-usa-wrestling-girls-folkstyle-national-championship/article_5a42e892-bcff-11ed-ade8-739e96a0c450.html
  25. We love bell peppers, and buy the big ones when they are on sale. Eat it all, or remainder keeps well in a zip lock bag. Work as well, or better than chips with dip.
