Aug 8, 2009 - Grease

We went to the Park County fair this morning. They had four animal barns of chickens, rabbits, cows, horses, sheep, goats & pigs. They also had a couple of exhibits building. Not much of a carnival area though. It was larger and nicer than Madera, plus it was free. Tonight we went to the Firehouse 5 theatre to see the play Grease. The play was very good even though we had seen it before, we just don't remember when, ah the joys of getting old.

Aug 6, 2009 - Hail!!!

House cleaning day today, it is truly amazing how much dirty laundry 2 people can generate. To day was a beautiful day temperature was in the mid 80's but this afternoon the temperature dropped, the wind came up then it started to hail. The hail storm only lasted a few minutes but long enough to turn the ground white. Some of the hail stones were almost as large as a golf ball. Then the rain came down in buckets for a few more minutes, after that we were back to our beautiful day. This evening we met Lonnie, Becky & the grand kids at The...

Aug 5, 2009 - Old Faithful

This morning Mary & I took Jr., Sissy & Marcus to Yellowstone to see Old Faithful. A beautiful 50 mile drive up the canyon to Gardiner the entrance to Yellowstone where we had breakfast. A pleasant surprise when we got to the gate to pay instead of having to pay $25 I purchased a lifetime senior pass for $10. After we got into the park the road became very twisting so Mary got behind the wheel. We didn't get to Old Faithful until 1PM after seeing a few Elk & some Moutain Goats, we had to wait around until 2:20 for the next eruption. The...

Aug 4, 2009 - Top of the Mountain

This morning we went to Natural Bridge Falls Sate Park, about 25 miles south of Big Timber. Along the way we had a discussion/argument about winding roads, car sickneness & whether or not being the driver helps. A beautiful drive up the Boulder River valley to the Gallatin National Forest. We were the only people at the falls. During spring high water run off there is a 100 foot water fall. As run off lessens the water goes under ground though caverns it has carved out of the limestone rock coming shooting out at the bottom of the falls. We...

We were at Lonnie's shop before 8:00 to get the air in the tires checked.

Sent Caremark an e-mail letting them know that the prescriptions showed up & worked on...

Kick back day, waiting for the rain to stop so they could get the race in at Pocono under way. About 3PM I decided to wash the car, about 4PM it decided to rain. The kids came over about 4:30 but because it was raining we went over to the Pop Stand & Grille for dinner & ice cream. They brought over our box of prescritions that UPS delivered to the wrong address & our mail which included the Streets & Trips program I ordered.

Jul 24, 2009 - Britta from Germany

Didn't do to much today. About 5:30 the wind went from 5 mph to 50 mph in a matter of a few minutes then started to rain. A young gal across the way from us was trying to keep her tent from blowing away. I went over to help her take it down & stuff it in the back seat of her car. Then invited her over to our coach to wait out the storm. Her name was Britta I would guess her to be in her early twenties. Turns out she is from Hamburg Germany has been in the US since February working for the conservation corps in Flagstaff then Santa Cruz. A...
