Big Timber Pioneer Days

The Yellowstone River is at flood stage, significantly flooding the Sweet Grass County fairgrounds which caused the cancelation of the rodeo tonight.  But all the other festivities such as car show and parade went on today as planned.  It is small town America at its best.  Lots of flags, fire trucks, kids collecting candy thrown from the rigs in the parade and lots of visiting with friends and neighbors.  Here are some of the photos of the car show and parade:

We had a great time—snacked on fresh squeezed lemonade and kettle popcorn—real nutritious  but oh so good!

We are off to Billings early tomorrow morning to retrieve Rollie and Gina at the airport, yippee!! 


  1. It will be good to hear news of Rollie and Gina. They don't post much anymore...

  2. Is that the same Rollie and Gina who used to write a Say hello from Dogpound North.

  3. looks like 'small town america' lived up to it's name today!..have fun with Gina and Rollie!!

  4. Fun looking parade and the slide show of those old cars was really nice to see.

  5. Just nothing like the small town celebrations.

  6. We are wishing we could come your way to see you guys and the "kids". It has been too long! We have doctor's appointments on Monday and Tuesday and then the flooring guys are supposed to show up the last part of the week so things are not looking good. Give the kids a big hug for us every day. We'll be there in spirit and following along to see what you guys are doing. Love U and big hugs...........
