When we camp in Helena we are outside the city limits and fire works can be shot off all times of the day or night for several days before the 4th and a couple of days after. The girls hate the noise and Jim and I don’t get much sleep. Definitely a nice change this year with not much noise and a good night’s sleep.
We haven’t completely become hermits in the heat. We went to dinner with Al and Wilma at Los Gringos Loco. It was “locals appreciation day” and they offered 40% off on food and $2 margaritas. Sure glad we are now considered locals.
We’ve had some clouds in the sky since monsoon season has started so we have actually had some pretty sunsets.
We also joined Paula for dinner one night. She works nights so it’s hard to coordinate getting together
Jim and I both got haircuts and the girls had their nails trimmed. We tried doing their nails ourselves but that turned into a complete disaster. Luckily we found a groomer here in AJ that only charges $5 per dog to do their nails. Best deal ever.
Jim got a graphic for the rear window on the truck topper. Bet you’re all surprised it’s a walleye.
We’ve had some break-ins and theft happening here in the park this summer. It seems that all the parks are having problems. We had four sheds that were broken into and we won’t know what all is missing until the people return this fall. We do know a small refrigerator was taken along with a couple of bicycles and a TV. Very frustrating. Not much the police can do except a drive through once in awhile.
The monsoon season has arrived but other than wind, lots of lightning and a little rain we haven’t seen much of it here in AJ yet. We did have a wicked wind the other night and were rockin’ and a rollin’.
That’s it from our little corner of the world.
