Be careful what you pray for. I have been praying that somebody will buy our house quickly so we can get back on the road. Well, one week after it was put on the market we accepted an offer. We actually had three offers so we had to make a decision. Sure hope it was the right one. The buyer wants to go to closing on August 19th.
Can you see the start of a double rainbow? After a storm in Helena.
Now remember, we are in Helena with plans to go to Canyon Ferry for the whole month of August. After talking with the realtor we knew we had to go back to Billings to finish cleaning out the sheds. I truly figured the house would not sell for a couple of months and we would have plenty of time. I was wrong. Now we are hoping to get everything taken to the dump, Goodwill, or figure out where we can stash it to take it back to Arizona so we can go to Canyon Ferry next week.
However, as most of you know, this offer could all fall apart before we go to closing. So I’m not doing a happy dance until I actually have the money in hand.
Skittlez has always been afraid of everything. Including other dogs. However, after some initial barking by Skittlez, she and the kids’ dogs got along just fine. We are still amazed.

This morning we had some excitement in our neighborhood. Billings is having a hot air balloon festival this week-end. I was hoping we could find time to check them out but we were able to get up close and personal. One of the balloons made an unexpected landing on the next street over from us. Not sure what went wrong but the pilot told me that she didn’t want to land in the river which is below us.
I’m just really grateful that they didn’t hit any of the power lines. Took some good piloting to set that big balloon down in a residential area. We walked over to check it out.
This little boy thought it was really cool to see the balloon.
