Billings, MT High 93 Low 55
Thursday was doctor appointments for me. Once again I am healthy as a horse – just need to lose weight and exercise more. Good to go for another year.
Friday morning we both got pedicures. Then Friday night Jim and Todd went to the races out at Billings Motor Park. Michaela had plans with a girlfriend so the girls and I stayed home and did nothing.
Saturday we had lunch with Judy and Gary. Nearly three hours later we finally said goodbye until next summer.
Last night we went to the Roller Derby. Really confusing to watch when you don’t have a clue what any of the rules are. But we slowly figured some of it out and by the end were yelling and screaming with the rest of the hometown crowd.
Jim and I used to watch roller derby on TV back in the 70’s (before we even knew each other). I even went to see a couple of derbies in person back then. Things have changed somewhat – they seem to have a lot more rules. These girls were not allowed to use their hands, elbows, forearms, helmets, etc. etc. etc. It was pretty tame compared to what I remember.
Jim and Michaela climbed up to the top of the bleachers. I don’t climb anything anymore so Todd and I sat down on the first row. (Always somebody in the way. Wonder if she hid her face because she’s with somebody she shouldn’t be or on America’s Most Wanted.)
I loved this official’s name. Don’t his skates and socks remind you of the wicked witch melting under the house from the Wizard of Oz?

Tomorrow we head further east. Not sure if we will have any internet for the next week or so but when we do I’ll get a blog post done.
