A Journey

My mother’s husband, our dear Chuck became very, very ill Thursday.  I will be leaving early Saturday morning flying to Arkansas to be with my family.  Michael and Emmi will hold down the fort here in Montana.  Life can change so quickly--

Last night when my brother called me, I began looking at plane tickets.  United and Delta are the major carriers here in Montana.  United flies to Little Rock, Arkansas with one stop in Denver.  Delta has two stops, one in Minneapolis and one in Atlanta(ugh!).  On the Delta website I found information about benevolent flights for extreme illness or death, nothing on the United site.  When I called United this morning I was told by a person with an extreme foreign accent, “United doesn’t offer those fares any longer.”  Well then!  The Delta agent was wonderful, giving me a slight discount on the last minute ticket price but the best thing was they made my ticket fully changeable with no fee so my return date can be flexible.  I have always been a Delta champion, even more so now!

So—expect blogs to be sporadic/boring.  We do appreciate our readers so much!


The cowboy has been busy being a mechanic lately—seems my car needed new brakes but before that when the weather was exceptionaly icky, he painted--





  1. My thoughts go with you during this difficult time. Take the time you need and don't worry about us readers. We'll all be here when you get back and feel like writing again. By the way I know I've already said this before, but that Cowboy of yours has some crazy talent.
