It was a very short night Monday—had to be at the airport by 5am—thus the reason for my staying in a downtown Little Rock hotel which had an early morning airport shuttle. Arriving in Bozeman after stopping in Detroit and Minneapolis, I was so glad to see Michael waiting with Ms. Emmi in his arms! Only Ms. Emmi didn’t recognize me! Within just a few minutes she realized who I was. At home she couldn’t wait for me to play ball with her in the backyard.
Today we woke to much cooler temps and rain. It was even cool in Billings where we had gone for a haircut and to stock the refrigerator and pantry. Three days before I left for Arkansas we had gone to Costco and purchased lots of fruits/vegetables/yogurt, etc. Needless to say most of that stuff went into the compost pile. The cowboy doesn’t cook!
We read with sadness about the loss of Jim and Ellie’s sweet schnauzer Jasmine—it’s so hard to lose a fur kid—very hard. Jasmine was so tolerant of Emmi when they first met while Mr. BoJangles watched with disgust.
We recently received an interesting email—a woman contacted us stating she had found in her late father’s belongings a copper Christmas card from a Nat and the X—A dude ranch in Montana. The post office cancelation stamp was either 1940 or 1941! She sent a photo of her father for us to show Nat. Small world isn’t it in this internet day and age!
It feels so, so good to be home!
