Billings, MT High 96 Low 63
Monday night we went to dinner with Judy and Don in Basin, MT. Had a wonderful chicken friend steak and some of the best bread pudding ever. They advertise it as the best in Montana and there was agreement at our table.
Tuesday morning we said goodbye to Judy and Don and hitched up. Scooter and Skittlez were really sad to leave their spot. It will be a long time before Scooter can run that free again. And Skittlez actually got comfortable enough after two months that she was able to leave the front yard.
Before we left Helena I got a message from Janna. She wanted to know if we would like to meet for lunch in Big Timber and we, of course, jumped at the chance to get together with these folks. There is a great pizza place and Jim was excited about getting a pizza. Since I don’t eat cheese, he doesn’t get to enjoy pizza very often. I had a fantastic Italian beef sandwich.
Janna and Michael are just what I expected. A very down to earth, very much in love couple who really enjoy life. It was fun visiting with folks who are familiar with Montana and have seen the changes in our state over the years. Thanks for lunch you guys. It was great.
Janna brought me a jar of her homemade chokecherry jelly. Talk about a score. I can’t wait to have some toast or pancakes. Hopefully we can see these guys down in AZ this year.
We finally tore ourselves away and headed on down the road to our son’s driveway in Billings. The street is still a mess but we were able to get to the house. Tomorrow starts our rounds of appointments.
Took Todd and Michaela out for dinner last night. I am so proud of how Todd how grown into a wonderful man. He loves being married to his best friend and is almost as good a husband as his Dad. Michaela gets more beautiful every time we see her. Sure am glad she said yes to Todd.
