A Wonderful December Day

Last night we joined Geoff and Nancy, Boo and Terry along with George and Shirley for dinner at the McLeod bar.  It was an enjoyable evening visiting with friends. 

After our early morning walk I was scurrying around to get Laci’s package to the McLeod post office for shipping to Italy.  The postal service recommends packages being shipped to service men and women be shipped by December 12 which is Monday.  This package was oversized and I wanted to get a jump on the due date!

When I returned from the post office Geoff and Claire were here discussing bear spray barrels and solving the problems of the world.  I decided to finish baking my Christmas cookies while all those problems were being solved.

Tonight we drove into Big Timber and watched the lighted Christmas parade, one of the best ever.  The temp was in the 30’s but the wind was blowing making it a might chilly to be standing on the street!  The parade made it all worthwhile—it is so fun to see all our friends and neighbors, have people call out to us from the floats and throw us candy.  After the parade the American Legion sets off a spectacular fireworks display—a simply wonderful Christmas season night.

After the parade we drove out to Jill and Terry’s for a Christmas party.  We all thought we were having wine and appetizers—nope, Jill had prepared a feast with beef tenderloin, ham, homemade biscuits, cheeses, etc.—a feast!  Jill is a great cook and her home was decorated beautifully.  We spent an enjoyable few hours eating and visiting with friends. 

The moon over our mountains is breathtaking reflecting in the snow. as we were driving home tonight.  This shot was taken as we were heading into town tonight before it was dark.    IMG_1378

Michael was able to remove the broken pump from the motorhome and install the new one today—he is pleased.


  1. Glad you're having a grand time there Janna & Mike... Love the photos but the moon shot is my favorite... I am a moon child! LOL
    Have fun & Travel safe

  2. nice parade...and excellent shot of the moon...sounds like quite the 'feast'....have fun and enjoy

  3. Bear spray barrels?? Now there's something to talk about...I guess. :)

  4. For several years we had a TV comedy series here in Canada called, "The Red Green Show". The host would always end his program by stating; "If women don't find you handsome, they should find you handy"! I guess you at least find Michael handy!!!LOL

    I relate that very same line to family, friends, and acquaintances! I am kinda handy! Jeanette merely laughs!
