Anyone know what this evil looking contraption is??
First I want to apologize to our Canadian readers–seems in the last blog when I copied and pasted from a news article the location of the horned dinosaur bones, the writer of that news article had misspelled Ottawa and I didn’t catch it–neither did spell check. This mistake was bluntly brought to my attention in an email from a reader. Perhaps he was being tongue in cheek as he misspelled two words in his email to me???? 🙂 🙂
June is more than half over and I would be hard pressed to tell you what we’ve done so far in the month of June. I do know we’ve made way too many trips to Billings but when you live in the middle of nowhere you have to go somewhere for the dentist, doctor and decent groceries. I made another trip to Billings on Tuesday for a haircut and to see the optometrist. I’ve worn contacts in the past; mono-vision and bifocal. As my up close vision worsened as it seems to do as we age, the contacts didn’t correct my close up vision as well as glasses. I stopped wearing contacts except when we ATV and I wear goggles. I can see in the distance but have to really focus on things such as the GPS. I was hoping the optometrist who I had seen in the past could help with the contact lens issues better than the optometrists I had seen at Costco but it was not to be. He said the contact lens companies had spent billions in trying to develop a lens for people who are both farsighted and nearsighted without success. The field of vision is too large for something as small as a contact lens to fix.
Monday I spent a couple hours on the phone with homeowners insurance companies. We’ve used the same local company for our home/ranch/auto insurance needs the entire time we’ve been married and the Cowboy used them before we married. About two years ago our insurance agent retired–how dare he!–and to say the least, we miss him greatly! As a result I was shopping and was successful. I had all ready moved our auto insurance to another company.
I loaded a quilt on Sunday afternoon and Monday afternoon spent about two hours quilting–it was a joy to be back on the longarm and it performed beautifully!
Today the Cowboy has been puttering with the motorhome and I’ve been cooking.
This time of year we live in a green jungle of aspen trees, cow parsnip plants, grasses and wild rose bushes. Seems one little dog lost her ball in the creek and as the water was down a touch the Cowboy went fishing for Emmi’s ball. He was successful and we have a happy pooch!
Wednesday evening we drove over to Lonn’s to have dinner and see the gang–a very special evening! Our granddaughter Laci and great granddaughter Lora are visiting from Germany. I will never tire of hearing those babies say, “Mimi, watch this, Mimi watch this.” Lora is almost five years old, Brooks is three and Millie is almost 21 months old. It’s chaos in that house but it’s a joyful chaos. Here is photo overload–
On the way home tonight the skies were so full of color–
