A Traveling Week

Whew--Billings again today--we were just there on Monday and I am going again tomorrow, Saturday. Monday was a normal Billings day for us, grocery shopping and other shopping.

Today, we took our realtor friends, Gwen and Jordan, to look at a piece of property we own near Billings with the intention of listing it with their firm. Gwen is the realtor that sold our ranch 3 years ago. It is a beautiful property with views in all directions--it was a little hard to get any photos today, it is very hazy from smoke drifting into Montana from California and Canadian fires.

We were also delivering for repair a Polaris Ranger, a type of four wheeler all terrain vehicle which belongs to the ranch Michael's son manages.

A quick Costco stop and then we headed back to Big Timber. While Michael picked up some garage lumber building supplies, I stopped by the nursing home to visit with a friend, Buryl. She and her husband owned the ranch adjoining ours until their health forced them to sell and move to Big Timber. She is 92 years old and her mind is very sharp but her body is starting to not cooperate. This winter while we were gone, her husband Jim fell and broke his hip, so he has been in the nursing home since February. We had a good visit, I wish the two of them did not have to be there.

We are getting late afternoon thunderstorms every day with rain. Many of our rancher neighbors have hay on the ground so they are wishing this rain would go away for a while.

I probably won't be posting any blogs until next Wednesday, tomorrow I am leaving for Kansas City to help my good friend Kelly celebrate the big 50th birthday. We are going to eat and shop and eat and shop.
