Friends and Family

Kalispell, MT

We got to spend some wonderful time visiting with friends and family and we got to eat out often.

We used to live in this area several years ago and have good friends who still live in Kalispell. We went to dinner with Judy and Dave but I forgot to get a picture. They own a 39 Chevy that Jim would love to have.

jillJudy and I also drove down to say hi and bye to our friend Jill. She finally sold her house south of Lakeside and is moving to St. George, UT.

She was having a huge garage sale and no I didn’t buy anything. We don’t have any room at all to put one more item.

This is Jill getting ready to take a picture of me.

We also went to dinner with Jerry and Janice to celebrate Jerry’s birthday. They were staying at a campground near Hungry Horse but drove down to  Kalispell for dinner at the Montana Club. Once again, no picture.

Jeri and Terry arrived and we got to enjoy a couple of great meals with them. This is them with Jeri’s nephew, Mike. Mike lives in Columbia Falls and we went to one of our favorite restaurants – the Back Room. Ribs and broasted chicken.


My cousin Jana joined us at the Back Room. I only have two first cousins on my Dad’s side of the family so she is very special to me.


We were able to meet up with Jeri, Terry, and Mike for one more dinner at Scotty’s. Jim had elk; Mike had buffalo; and the rest of us had steak. It was wonderful.

After ten days it is time for us to move on. We said goodbye to everyone and got to see David one more time.


Skitz is not looking forward to moving on and would prefer just to lay in front of the heat vent,


Or under the blankets.


See you on the road.


  1. That's a great picture of you, my camera shy friend. Are you losing weight? The red shirt looks great on you.

    So jealous you are seeing all our traveling friends but our time will come too.

  2. Wow, you guys are real social butterflies and move around like them also. It hard for comments to keep up with you two.

    Keep having fun out there.

  3. You have been busy! It was great to see you all again enjoyed our time with you.

  4. Isn't there a dam named Hungry Horse? Rich and I spent quite a bit of time up in Kalispel. Glad you got to spend time with family and friends. The "Roaming Life" we lead is great, but it's important to keep up with family. If your weather is a lot cooler than ours, I'd be under the covers with Skitz, too! Hi Jim!

  5. Great pictures and lots of good sounding food. You said you will take your time coming back to AZ so by then the weather will be perfect I think. It has been wonderful lately and from the looking ahead a bit it will go up and down but not over mid 90's.

    Love the shot of Skitz peeking out from under the blanket.
    Travel safe

  6. It was great getting with you and sharing three dinners and a trip to the Bison Range. What fun ! Looking forward to getting on the road again. We'll see you in Arizona for sure !

  7. Such a fun time with friends, always fun to meet up with them.

  8. Wow. Now that is some celebrating. Looks like a ton of wonderful times with family and dear friends. Keep enjoying the good life.

  9. How nice to visit with family and friends. Always fun. You look great Sandy! So where are you two off to now? We've been in SW CO this year and loved every minute of it. We will really miss it when we head south Oct 1.

  10. Boy you guys have had one social whirlwind. Always great to get together with old - and new - friends.


Thanks for visiting today. I look forward to reading your comments. Have a beautiful day.
