Look Who Came To Visit

It’s been a long, long time since these friends came to visit—summer of 2007.  We first met Angie and Ralph in the winter of 2003 when we were participating in a shooting sport—Ralph was also a shooter.  At that time they still owned a farm in Maryland and were traveling part time in a truck camper towing a horse trailer behind.

We hit it off immediately with these folks and have kept in touch over the years, they spent a couple months at our place in the summer of 2007.  Angela and Ralph are now full time RVers and travel with a big ole Dodge pickup and a Holiday Rambler 5th wheel. 


Tonight we dined on the deck—steaks provided by Angie and Ralph—Pioneer Woman potatoes, salad and grilled zucchini (for all of us except the cowboySmile).  We haven’t stopped talking since they arrived!

The cowboy was industrious today washing both the Cadillac and the jeep.  I gave Ms. Emmi a bath and cut some pieces for a little quilt I am making.

Last night Joe and Carolyn joined us for a little drive and dinner.  I tried another Pioneer Woman recipe, chicken parmigiana—it was absolutely delicious!!!  And the cowboy said I could serve that one again—he even liked it!!!

Life is good.


  1. Always great to spend time with friends you have not seen for awhile!

  2. Looks like such a relaxed fun time and meal on the deck...... So glad your friends are there to share..... The menu sounded tasty !!!

  3. Thanks for link to the chicken recipe. Will make that sometimes. Nice to see you are having a good time with your friends.

  4. LOL We do love Pioneer Woman don't we?
    Saturday I made her scallopine.

    I make her Smashed Potatoes all the time.

  5. I always need to check out your Pioneer Woman recipes, they are great fun. Nice photo of the dinner deck folks. Love it when old friends get to our remote worlds. Lovely.

  6. I somehow wandered off from your blog to Kay in Scotland...good gracious...that Dragonfly quilt is breathtaking. I would be excited to send a quilt to you in Montana, much less one off to Scotland. You longarm artists are an incredible breed. I love it when you show your work.

  7. Those old friends are the very best - glad you got some time to get caught up in person!

  8. I guess I'll just have to try these Pioneer Woman recipes - they sure look good! Tell the cowboy to eat his veggies or no dessert!

  9. I'm with Mike, that zucchini is a poor excuse for a vegetable. Kind of like cucumbers but without the taste. About the only time I enjoyed it was in a chocolate cake and that might have been because it really didn't add or take anything away from the cake.

  10. Those folks look vaguely familiar........

  11. You know you're comfortable with someone when you can kick off your boots and enjoy a meal and laughter together!
