The Montanans Are Moving In

It looked like the Beverly Hillbillies lived here most of the day.  Bay doors open, boxes sitting everywhere, stuff on the grass, stuff on the concrete—the Montanans are moving in!  Michael had only one moment of “oh, my, I think we left one set of wheels and the power advance for your machine at home.”  I knew full well we hadn’t, it was just misplaced in all that stuff.  Sure enough the missing pieces surfaced early afternoon.IMG_5426IMG_5427

The longarm table is assembled along with the carriage and head—new wheels in the process which are supposed to make the machine much easier to move.  Ugly carpet was installed first thing this morning—it is high grade carpet and will make a great cushion plus keep things clean—but that carpet is sure hard on the eyes! 

I spent the day trying to remove most of the travel dust from the rig—made a huge dent but the poor thing still needs some attention!  I think we still had dust from our trip to Hell’s Canyon on Fort Peck Lake over Labor Day weekend!

Tonight Rollie and his ( and Michael’s) boss Rick came for dinner—we enjoyed pork tenderloins, roasted potatoes and broccoli.  Dessert was homemade brownies and best of all—I am back in Texas where they sell Blue Bell ice cream—we did have the no sugar added/low fat kind and it was delicious! 

When we pulled in yesterday two of the quilting ladies from this park came over to meet me—they’ve been waiting for this crazy woman who travels with her longarm.  Judy and Peggy were a pleasure to meet and I’m looking forward to getting involved in their group. 

The weather was beautiful today, sunny with a slight breeze and not too hot.

  IMG_5429When Michael and I left Montana we brought with us a Christmas tree—a real one.  We put the tree up on the steering wheel table today along with our Nativity scene.  Quickest decorating job I ever did! 

Our neighbor on the left in the above photo is also working this project—he has a truck—Paul and Rollie showed up with a new grill in that truck around lunch time.  As we are going to be living here for a period of time, I left our RV grill at home with plans to purchase a larger one down here.  Rollie was in agreement about the big grill so we jointly purchased one—we just haven’t contributed our share yet!

  1. The Beverly Hillbillies never looked that good:)

  2. I'm glad to see you have arrived safe and sound, and already settled in. However, I'm already missing the gorgeous Montana pictures. I guess I'll have to settle for looking at older postings and pictures.

  3. Getting it all together very nicely. It's amazing how quilting people just seem to know where there are more quilters. Happens in this park also.

  4. Looks like you've got all the comforts of home...including a Montana Christmas tree! :)

  5. Nice looking spot you have there. Glad you didn't forget anything critical to the operation of your longarm - it's a long way back to Montana!
