Busy and busy…..

Well after 19 years at one address we made the decision to move this spring. Have to say it was anything but fun in doing so ! Unbelievable how much one can gather over the course of time. We made the big move April first and many small trips to and from over the next couple of weeks. Pretty much all is in place and straight as of now,weeks later.

This place has a bigger side and backyard than the old. Seemed kind of weird giving up the other place. Yet at the same time it has been exciting in a way. The dogs were all frantic the first few day. Yet they all decided they loved the move when they discovered the have a big fenced in backyard to roam. A deck to sun on and sleep there afternoons away!

I know I have been absent for sometime on the blog being busy getting this move in order as well as executed. Yard work caught up and garden in now. So will get back to keeping up with the site and friends. Spring is here and the summer about to unfold. Kim is free now from teaching as summer vacation is upon us. Fishing and traveling in store as well. Not going to make it to Montana this summer. Opted to adventure off to the Ozarks trout fishing as well as site seeing. Line up the dog sitter and pack the bags then go for it !

The Class of 2017, Lafayette High School. St. Joseph Missouri took to the task of presenting this years graduating Seniors on Mothers Day, May 22nd at The Civic arena. Among those who walked was my youngest of six and the final to walk the isle.

Now in the midst of my “bragging rights” lies the fact that I am not getting younger in the meantime ! It’s been another milestone in the walk of life indeed. Congratulations Josie Amber.


coffee drinkers paradise !

I had the pleasure while on vacation and Staying in Whitefish Mt. to visit this establishment. (of course being a coffee fanatic why wouldn’t I?) I missed out on the grand tour while there.

Whitefish is the gate to what I refer to as “the paradise of Montana” (Glacier National Park)

By far my favorite was Montana Traders Coffee Roasters “Grizzly Blend”. This is a dark roasted coffee worthy by far of all dark roasted coffees. I believe they roast something like 40 different coffees for every ones enjoyment. Montana Coffee Traders also has soups and deli items made fresh on there menu daily. Having several locations I recommend this as one of your bucket list items of things to do while in Montana. Check out there website before had and give them a try and see why you WANT to pay these folks a visit while there. From gifts to wares of Montana,including fresh ground to whole bean coffee you will love them. what a better way to make a coffee drinker happy at Christmas than give them a gift card or order from Montana Coffee Traders?
