Non Wavers
Who are you people? You "Non Wavers". I wave at anybody driving down the roads by our place, but not everybody waves back. Why not?
Troubles at home? Financial worries? What is it?
Heck, the Jeep owners even have a code called "The Jeep Wave"...
Carnage on America’s Byways
I finally got healed up and went for a walk yesterday. I got to see all the new beer cans and liquor bottles left for us.
My picture was snapped as I had plenty of time to think during my hour plus walk.
So, do we feel sad for this newspaper's family...
Bay City Rollers
This goes back several years ago when Paul & I got on the topic of the band, the Bay City Rollers.
This was pre-Facebook and we got quite a few calls about folks from Great Falls, who were at their show at the grand stands at the fairgrounds in Great Falls in about 1978ish.

Toys R Us Closing
Time marches on and is now claiming another fatality, by closing Toys R Us.
I haven't shopped there in many years, but I still hate to see them go. I have taken nieces and nephews in there and let them pick out their own presents.
I bought Nintendo 64 games there 20 years ago...
King for a Day
There's a song called "King For Just One Day" by the Thompson Twins that led me to my blog topic today.
The premise is that you get to make whatever rules you deem necessary. They can be serious or not.
Here are mine. If I were king for just one day, I would:
Make it a law that s…

Billings area Albertsons stores have been remodeling and the store at 511 Central Avenue will hold the grand reopening this morning at 11 a.m.
The have remodeled the deli, produce area, meat department, and bakery. In addition, they've also expanded their beer cooler...
Yellowstone County Spelling Bee
This was the twentieth year that Paul & I have been associated with the bee.
We've done the event at Petro Theatre, Billings West Highs auditorium, the Skyviews, and this year at the Lincoln Center.
We sit on the side of the stage where we get a birds eye view of the process.

Pot Holes
Where are you? I know that you are out there waiting for me and my perfect alignment. Waiting to ruin it.
Are you hiding under some ice on a side street? Are you on one of the main roads that I travel, hoping that the sun will blind me, so you can do your worst...
New Dishwasher
I'll take a "blog break" from looking back on 30 years here at The Cat to talk about my dishwasher install project.
Or rather, watching my neighbor work through the install of this modern appliance.
Can somebody tell me why the new machines don't come with that little 90 de…
30 years of Meeting People
Radio is a business where you meet a lot of people and I'm thinking back today on many of the really nice people that I've had the pleasure of meeting since I started on the air, here, in 1988.
Rudy Gatlin. The Gatlins were in town for a show last summer and he stopped by the studio...
The Cat Country Golf Tournament
Back when we started broadcasting in 1988, we did a lot of neat promotions and one of those was our own station golf tournament.
We'd invite advertisers to come spend an afternoon with us playing some golf and having some fun.
Top teams won some pretty good prizes and it was a great time for all.…
