You Couldn't Ask For a More Beautiful Day

Jazzy is much better so we all slept well last night and woke to a beautiful blue sky Montana day. Michael wanted to go to an auction in Big Timber so after breakfast and our walk, off we went. He dropped me off downtown and I wandered into Cinnabar Creek and the quilt store. I am thinking of purchasing a longarm quilting machine and Vickie in Little Timber Quilts was a wealth of information. It wasn't long before Michael was ready to go having not found any treasures he couldn't live without (thank you God!) and we went to have lunch at the Frosty Freeze.

At home I did some laundry and researched quilting machines on the internet. There is a store in Billings that carries one of the brands I am leaning toward so maybe this next week I can stop in the store. I am taking Michael's Dad Nat to Billings next week for cataract surgery.

This is my wonderful Mom, Martha and I standing on a bridge at the A Bar A guest ranch. The ranch can accommodate 100 guests and employes over 80 people--so you are well cared for when staying there. The accommodations are luxurious and beautiful. There are activities such as horseback riding, hiking, fishing and shooting. The grounds are just spectacular with life size bronze statues, creeks, ponds and flowers everywhere.

This barn was built in the late 1800's. The A Bar A Ranch was established in 1926 and is one of the oldest and largest guest ranches in the country. The ranch occupies 140,000 acres and is surrounded by national forest and wilderness land. 12 miles of the North Platte River runs through the ranch.
The wranglers bring 120 head of horses down from the meadows into the corrals getting ready for the day's rides. This is one of the life size bronzes--children walking a log across the little creek. The photo doesn't do justice to the beauty of the statues.
