Helena, MT High 87 Low 56
This post is really a conglomeration of things.
I finally got a couple of decent pictures of a bird. I am so excited. In the second one you can see the fish he(she) caught and in the third one he is chowing down on dinner.
On the news the other night we heard about a fire in a campground up near Gates of the Mountains on Holter Lake. The fire started in the fridge of one of the RV’s and then spread to two others before they got it under control. I am really impressed with the speed that they were able to control this blaze considering how close together all the rigs are. Such a scary situation. Nobody was injured and the fire did not get out of control. These pictures came from the KXLH web site.
I have found the most wonderful blog that is all about Montana’s history. Montana Moments by Ellen Baumler is well worth a visit if you have an interest in Montana. Amazing the things I don’t know about my home state.
Went to dinner with Judy and Don last night and I am the only one who enjoyed their food. Even Jim didn’t finish his and for those of you who know him, that just doesn’t happen. I think we’re going to try again this week-end at a different restaurant. So if you’re in Helena, I’d recommend you not eat at the Bull’s Eye.
Not happy news – my niece, Kim, is not going to India. Seems there was a problem with the paperwork getting lost which would allow her to get her Visa. I’m not sure exactly all what happened, but she’s really upset and I feel bad for her. She gave up her apartment and now has no place to live and doesn’t know what she’s going to do.
