Mattresses And Toppers

Well, for the first time in a long while I woke this morning without hip pain—we slept on the motorhome bed again with just the memory foam topper on top of the mattress. 

But when we came in the house all was not right with our world—no internet—oh, no!!!  So, I took my coffee downstairs and got a quilt back loaded onto the frame.  No blog reading for us this morning!  Withdrawal!!  When I contacted the local telephone company I was told the thunderstorm we had last night knocked out the DSL to our entire community.  It was back up and running before lunch time.

Both of us were needing a little big city fix so off we went to Billings and purchased a memory foam topper for the king size bed here in the house.  Those things are heavy!  Hopefully this will work!  A lot less expensive than a new mattress!

On the way into Billings we drove through Park City where we made a stop at our favorite roadside stand to see if they had sweet corn yet.  Yep, they did and we bought 4 dozen ears—I will share with our friends and neighbors.  I cooked a couple ears when we got home—it is so good and sweet!  A cute little boy hauled our bag of corn out to the truck in his little red wagon!

We had a great lunch at Jake’s with Michael saying it was one of the best burgers he had ever eaten.  My fish tacos were very good, too.

Stops at Costco and Wal Mart completed our day’s errands before we headed back to Big Timber to pick up Ms Emmi.  Had a nice visit with Nat before coming home to unload and get that topper un-squished and onto the bed.

It was 92 degrees in Billings today but 74 when we arrived home this evening.  Life is good!


A reader of the blog asked what kind of sports car we have—it is a Toyota MR2 Spyder.  Toyota stopped making these cars in 2005, this one is a 2002 and is the most fun car I have ever driven. 


  1. No internet? Horrors. I hate it when I am out of touch with my blog reading. I may not post every day but I sure do want to read every day. Sometime when you come to the big city, let us know and we'll meet you somewhere for lunch. Gave up on material and found a quilt to order.

  2. glad to hear that you finally got a memory foam!..and yes they are heavy but so worth it!!!
    no internet?...oh my..that really stinks!!!..sure messes with the morning schedule without it!!

  3. Good mornin' Janna.....sounds like you had a fun day in the big city. I wish I had known you needed a memory foam topper when you were at North Ranch last Spring. I have a brand new one on my bed there and Mike hates it. I like it fine so we'll try it again this Winter and see if he changes his mind. :-) Hugs.....

  4. Hmmm that reminds me. I'd better make a trip today for some sweet corn. I'm thinking I'll only get two ears though, not four dozen. :)

  5. Ummm, fresh sweet corn, nothing like it. Need to get out to the farm and get some. Sounds like you had a wonderful day (after the internet got fixed!)
