A Shopping Trip

That Jim is a trooper!  As long as we let him go into the occasional “man shop” such as a hardware store and in Jim’s case a kitchen store, he is a happy camper.  He followed Ellie and me around like a trooper today!  I picked Jim and Ellie up at their campsite giving them the “grand” tour of Big Timber by taking them to the dump to drop off my recycling!

We walked around Big Timber for a while, grabbed a coffee at Cinnabar Creek and headed to Livingston.  We toured around the shops of this little town for a while—that’s where Jim found the kitchen store.  Jim and Ellie also enjoyed the Wine and Cheese Cellar at the Depot.  Lunch at the Mexican restaurant then it was time to head back to Big Timber as Jim and Ellie were treating us to dinner at their house.

I drove back up the Boulder, slapped a rhubarb crisp in the oven, read the mail and just relaxed for a bit.  The three of us then headed back into town.  Jim and Ellie are staying at Spring Creek Campground which is located right on the flooded Boulder River.  Parts of the campground are not useable at this time due to flooding and the mosquitoes are menacing!! 

The view from the rear of their motorhome:


Jim and Ellie served us a wonderful dinner and we visited while watching the three dogs entertain us.  Emmi makes herself right at home in their rig going straight for the toy box in the bedroom:


All too soon we were telling them goodbye until next time, they pull out in the morning.  We will hopefully see them again this winter!  Travel safe Jim and Ellie.

Emmi likes to ride hanging out of the convertible when we are coming up the driveway—we call her the lookout.


A beautiful Montana summer day spent with good friends.


  1. sounds like you all had a great day and lovely dinner! rhubarb crisp!..the crispier the better!..

  2. What a nice day. Never had rhubarb crisp...hmmm!!

  3. When I was a kid, going to the dump was a big thrill! I wonder what that says about my childhood.

  4. Going to the dump and having Rhubarb Crisp - sounds like a perfect day to me!

  5. Thanks again for taking time from your busy schedules for some fun with us - we really enjoyed visiting your beautiful, beautiful corner of the world!

    Take care and we'll see you down the road, hopefully sooner rather than later.
