Recommended Posts

 Here are some views of northwest Montana over the past month or so.  Not much relief in site, we are going to need a real early snow..   Our whole state has fires.  Monday I heard in the state we had over 800,000 acers on fire or already burned, and over 500,000 of those acers are in northwest part of the state.   And since Monday all of the fires had blown up, some almost doubling.     The pict of the big smoke plume, that plume is close to 100 miles away..

The problems we face today exist because the people who work for a living are outnumbered by the people who vote for a living.

The government can only "give" someone what they first take from another.

The "face" looks like Teddy Roosevelt!

Wow that face is cool. Amazing how that showed up...     Hey, NO problem sharing the smoke thread,   seems like most of the time we here in Montana are left unmentioned.    Even though we have the #1 wild fire in the nation, we are not L.A.  so it doesn't get the coverage.   Kinda like the snow and blizzards in the winter.

Well Zinke gave a speech the other day and said no more of this no logging and then let it burn bs. He said it costs us way to much not only putting the fires out but also losing the money that state and federal timber sales brought into our tax base. Hopefully he is successful in bringing more common sense back to US industries.

Yeah it's funny how all the animals and animal habitats that get wiped out never get mentioned. Hopefully we can start truly taking care of our forests.

Friend's pet pig is named Bacon!

When my grand kids ask where the lambs, bunnies and rabbits are, I tell them they are on vacation at Club Westinghouse. They haven't caught on yet.

Good name! My 55 chevy is named IT. My family picked the name. "When you gonna paint IT? Why is IT so loud? Why doesn't IT have an interior? How can you drive IT?"

Well I checked the forecast and we're supposed to get a half inch of rain Thursday some Friday and another quarter of an inch in Saturday. Extended forecast says rain through next Wednesday. Let's hope so.
