Helena, MT High 91 Low 62
I haven’t felt like blogging since Scooter died. Been a really sad time at the Dixon house but we are slowly adjusting to just the three of us.
Skittlez is doing really good. Gets smothered with a whole lot of love. She hated to be left alone at first and cried the whole time we were gone. In fact she was so pathetic that my sister (who is not a dog lover) couldn’t stand it any longer and has been dog sitting for us when we need to go somewhere. She and Skitz have really bonded. But Skittlez is doing much better as time goes on and she realizes that we will be coming home to her.

The house is on the market. Jim just about put himself in the grave getting it fixed up. Sure glad the kids did most of the painting for us. Now we just need it to sell quickly.

It was time to give Jim a break so we packed up and headed for Helena. We’re spending a couple of weeks on my brother-in-laws lot before we head down to the KOA on Canyon Ferry for the month of August. Jim plans to do a whole lot of fishing and the campground is almost on the lake.
Our friend Paul also spent last week here in Helena and we had some really good times together. Tuesday was my birthday so he took us to breakfast at this really great little place down on Last Chance Gulch – No Sweat Café. It was excellent. Definitely going back there again.
We also went to York for a hamburger. They are known for their burgers but we were disappointed in ours. Overcooked and dry. But it was a beautiful drive up into the mountains.

Thank you to everyone who sent their love and sympathy and also all the birthday wishes. You guys are the best.
