Tires, Packing, Cooking

Yesterday after lunch we headed into town—the jeep needed new tires before it heads to Arizona!  That’s three sets of new tires we’ve purchased this year, OUCH!!!  We delivered quilts and ran a bunch more errands and spent some time visiting Nat. 

We borrowed Nat’s truck while the jeep was at the tire shop and when it was time for him to leave the Senior Center I drove over to get him.  He was heavily involved in a pinochle card game—I sat behind him and watched through about four hands and never did understand just what the heck they were doing!! 

On our way into town it was raining, coming home snowing.  We woke to about eight inches of the white stuff—it’s gorgeous but couldn’t it have waited until we were gone???  Michael spent a couple hours plowing snow this morning. 


I started cooking some of the dishes I am taking over to Lonn’s tomorrow, gave Emmi a bath, worked on some Christmas presents and started packing.  Our temperatures are going to take a dive this weekend so we aren’t loading anything freezable into the rig just yet—we are both ready to head south to say the least! 

The little Canon SX700 I purchased for our Alaska trip was having issues—if you turned the camera to take a vertical shot the LCD screen would go black.  Canon has a wonderful service department—complete the online form and send the camera back.   Repairs are completed and the camera or a replacement is returned to you within seven days of when Canon receives the camera.  All was well until Fed Ex forgot where we live—they do this periodically here in Montana—delivering my camera to our neighbors who are not in residence at the time!!!  We always know when FedEx tracking states “delivered” and we don’t have the item—go down to Joe and Tammy’s—the package is always on their porch!  We were expecting a couple more packages from Amazon today—when I checked tracking it was marked “delivered.”  Guess we will take a trip down the hill to Joe and Tammy’s again!

Happy Thanksgiving to all our friends and family!!


  1. Pinochle! Played it everyday while in the Navy,way back in the last century. Wouldn't know where to begin, now. Shopping for tires, myself. As you said, ouch. Happy Thanksgiving to you and the Cowboy, as well as the rest of your family. Safe travels, too.

  2. I played a lot of pinochle in the old days too. It's a fun game. Have you got that turkey ready for the oven? No snow down here. :)

  3. HAPPY THANKSGIVING ALL THE WAY AROUND UP THERE IN THE SNOW COUNTRY !!! I bet you will have fun especially if you get to see the baby !!!

  4. That must be annoying for you when you have to run to get your packages. Hope it will not snow much more so you can get the motor-home heading for warmer weather. Have a great Thanksgiving.

  5. Oh, yes, you need to get out of there!! Have a great Thanksgiving:) Safe travels!

  6. Gorgeous pics! So happy all that snow is at your house and not mine!! Wishing you a wonderful Thanksgiving and all the best!

    1. Same here - Happy Thanksgiving and have a great dinner, I know it will be.

      The snow photos are beautiful - especially from a distance.

  7. Even the snow doesn't slow you two down! It really is beautiful, and soon you'll leave it behind. I love that you know where your packages are when they aren't on your porch - perhaps a note on Tammy's porch to the FedEx driver would get them delivered all the way home :-) Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.

  8. The snow photos are nice! They bring back fond memories of our lives lived in Alberta, Canada, well over 35 years back. To look at snow photos is the desert of the US southwest is even nice though.

    Happy Thanksgiving.

  9. Your snow is absolutely breath taking! At least that's my version because that snow I don't have to shovel!
