Helena, MT High 86 Low 59
We had a quiet day. We decided that we needed a new CD player in the rig. The one we had bit the dust quite awhile ago. Jim said we needed one that would run off of 12v for those times when we are boondocking.
Found us a car stereo cd player and radio that fit the bill perfectly. Jim had to tweak it some to make it fit where we wanted and had to get it all hooked up. It’s wonderful to be able to listen to our old cd’s again.
Late afternoon we went next door to my sister’s house. Her son, (my nephew) Chris, and his family joined us. Don, my BIL, made his fantastic tacos and Randi (Chris’s wife) made the best salsa. We took over a fresh fruit salad and we had watermelon for dessert. Food was fantastic but the company even better.
Chris and Randi
Chris is one of those guys who can really tell a story. He had us in stitches listening to his escapades when he was younger (not sure my sister appreciated all of his stories though) and then he started telling us stories about taking his kids and his nephew hunting. Haven’t laughed that hard in a long time.
Courtney and Zach
They also brought along the newest addition to their family. Meet Bella. She is such a cutie.A ball of energy and then a complete collapse.
Zach had a bunch of fireworks he wanted to shoot off and Courtney just had to go out to the lake to meet up with her friends for a bonfire and fireworks. They took off and Jim and I headed home to try and calm down a freaked out dachshund.
Dogs can be so different. Scooter hates lightning and thunderstorms. They don’t bother Skittlez at all. But fireworks put Skittlez into a panic state and Scooter could care less about them. Not sure I understand the difference but the girls sure do know it.
Our neighbors really helped out the fireworks community because they started their show at 10:00 and didn’t end until 1:30 a.m. I really do hate those ones that do nothing but make a big white light and go boom. They had a lot of those. I am so glad the 4th is over with. But not near as glad as Skittlez.
