Aug 31, 2010 - Yellowstone/Sheridan, Wyoming

We left Yellowstone today through the East entrance and traveled to Cody, Wyoming, where we spent a few hours at the Buffalo Bill Museum. Actually, there are four museums, all under one roof (over 200,000 square feet). Dave's favorite was the Cody Firearm Museum, which has 5200 firearms on display and 4800 more in storage. Then it was on to Sheridan. Getting to Sheridan required negotiating Granite Pass (elevation 9,033 feet). There were alot of hairpin curves and speed limits ranging from 20 to 35 mph. The truck did fine (and so did Kathi)...

Rapid City to Custer National Park to Sheridan Wyoming Following the recommendation from a woman we spoke to in Keystone we decided to drive through the Custer National park and in particular the wildlife loop.After paying our $12 entry fee it did not take us long to come across a herd of buffalo roaming alongside the road.It was great to see them wandering so free and looking so natural and healthy.We were able to take lots of photos and the calves in particular were very cute.The herd did not seem concerned by our attention and were just...

Aug 15, 2010 - A Chili Kind Of Day

It is a little warmer here today at 73*, but it was still only 59* when we went for our walk early this morning. I am going to make a big pot of chili before we settle down to watch the Bronco’s game tonight. This probably doesn’t sound too good to all of you that are suffering in the heat wave, but it will be perfect for us this evening. I am just posting a note on this site, but my full blog can be found by clicking on Pidge… :) Stay safe and I will catch you later…

Aug 14, 2010 - Big Horn Mercantile

We just can’t believe this weather. It is August and we woke up to 50* this morning. It was definitely a two cover night. I also ran the furnace this morning. Just to take the chill off. I like to stay in my nightgown till I read my emails and such. It is still only 63* at 2:30pm. I know you all wish you had some of this cool weather, and I wish I could send it to you. There is new full timers among us. Mark and Linda just started full timing and also just started a blog. If you get time check it out. The address is:...

Aug 13, 2010 - Cold In Sheridan, Wyoming

We really had another wild and windy storm early yesterday evening. A little hail, a lot of wind, and absolute downpours. Water was running down all the lanes here at Peter D’s RV Park. No damage done that we could see, but it sure brought some cool weather with it. It is after 1:00 here and it is still only 63* outside. We actually have our little electric heater running to chase the chill away. Very gloomy too. Haven’t seen the sun all day. We did manage to get out and take our walk today. Have any of you noticed how high Scott bathroom...

Aug 12, 2010 - Bradford Brinton Memorial & Museum

I don’t think I have mentioned how windy it is here. For most of the day it is very calm with just a slight breeze, but it seems like every evening the winds blow in. One evening there were gusts up to 60 miles per hour. That’s what the winds were that tore our roof up, so I get a little nervous when they are that high. So far, no damage. Yesterday was a stay-at-home day. I had more laundry to get caught up on, and wanted to switch out my bed clothes. I have a beautiful brown bedspread that I got with the RV, and it matches all materials...

Aug 10, 2010 - A Ride Up 16

Did any of you catch the football game on Sunday? I watched a little bit of it, but it almost looked like a one-sided game. While I was watching, the Cowboys were all over the Bengal’s.(SP) I realize this game had nothing to do with the season, but for me it was very boring. I got some very good news about my best Buddy today. She had her bone marrow test today and was diagnosed with a Poly something or other. The good news is it won’t turn into Leukemia and she can be treated with pills. I think she said she has to take 2 a day. She did...

Aug 8, 2010 - Race Day Sunday

I am hooked on NASCAR now. My brother, Uncle Boone, talked me into watching when we were staying in Indy with him, and now I am hooked on it. My younger brother, Herb also watches every week and has been a long time Jeff Gordon fan. My stepson, Jason is a Tony Stewart fan, so I have a couple of guys to root for, but Jeff is my favorite. I talked to my brother earlier today and he is feeling a little bit better since his surgery, but still in a lot of pain. I guess since his spleen was so large they had to really do some cutting on him. He...

Aug 7, 2010 - Moose, Wonderful Moose

I just got a call from my daughter, Shannon, who is also a nurse. We have more or less delegated her to do the calling about Uncle Boone, because she understands what they are saying. His report this morning is very good. He was up and in a chair when she called, but still in lots of pain. His vitals are very good and, as of this morning, his blood count was staying up to 8.7. He may be moved out of Critical Care today into a regular room. Anyone in the family that want to call him, I will pass his room number and phone number along as soon...

Aug 5, 2010 - Very Anxious Day

I have spent most of the day waiting for the phone to ring. My brother was scheduled to go in for surgery at 9:00am Indy time, 7:00am our time. By 11:00 our time I still hadn’t heard anything, so I called my cousin Charlotte. She was taking my brother to the hospital this morning and was going to hang around till it was over, so she could call and let us know what was going on. They were still waiting to go into surgery. The Doctors were running that far behind. They were there at 7:00 and didn’t go in till 1:00. That’s a six hour wait....

Aug 4, 2010 - 57* In Sheridan

That’s right. It was 57* when we got up this morning. Hard to believe after all the hot, hot weather we were in when in Tell City, In. It was in the 90’s almost every day we were at home, and I think it rained almost every day too. Here we will have a little shower and in about an hour the sun will be back out. It is also still in the 70’s here at 3:00 in the afternoon. I kept my word and got all my laundry caught up today. I love having a washer and dryer on board. I am not talking about one of those little jobs that come with an RV. We...

Aug 3, 2010 - Too Hot To Cook

I just can’t seem to get up enough of an appetite to cook a big meal in the evening when it is hot. Last night we had a tuna fish sandwich, quartered tomatoes with Italian dressing and I heated up some beans for a side dish. It was actually pretty good and I didn’t have to heat the whole RV up. Tonight I am going out on a limb and fixing smoked sausage, sour kraut, mashed taters and corn. It is much cooler today. Only in the 70’s, so shouldn’t heat the place up too bad. We went back over to Buffalo this morning and drove up into the...
