Don’t cheat yourself

Cheating goes against everything I was brought up to believe. It’s the lowest form of lying. To cheat is to deceive with a purpose. It could be something as simple as a four year old peeking at the color cards while playing Chutes and Ladders. Our grandson tried peeking. He wanted to win. No one […]

Epic Loop-5

Headed out of Butte about 10, driving on I-90 straight up until we crossed the continental divide. Super steep coming up, much gentler slope on the east side. Confusing now because all the rivers flow east. The river always flows west in toward the Columbia when you are from western Washington. I’m used to the […]

Epic Loop-4

Outstanding drive out of St. Regis toward Butte, Montana this morning. Glorious weather; temperature up in the 80’s before noon.

You know how it is when […]

I really don’t like the spring forward thing. Never did and probably never well! The drive was beautiful. A couple places […]

We fight aging, we dye our hair, use anti-wrinkle creams, whiten our teeth, get botox treatments, face-lifts, tummy tucks, and […]
