Drive Throughs
I'm a big fan of drive throughs at fast food places. The industry has changed their focus to make sure that the drive up customer gets their orders extremely fast.
Now, I see that the Heights Walmart is putting in a drive up window. You can order your specific groceries on their app, and when yo…
New Bozeman Mascot
We took suggestions this morning for what you folks thought the mascot should be for the new high school that they are building in Bozeman.
Here are some of the answers we got.
Bozeman Passers, Snow Flakes, Basket Weavers, Raptors, Frontiersmen, Bagels,
and Granolas...
If you are a friend of mine on Facebook, then you might have seen the "Album Challenge"  I was nominated for by Tim Giesler.
It's 10 of your favorite albums, in no particular order. And you can invite another one of your friends top play along...

My Fellow Blogger
Here's a picture of our All Star Blogger in action. It's a rare honor to see the master busy at his craft. He's even got a "Born To Blog" tattoo.
Oh sure, it's "Hunt & Peck" done with such force that the people on the floor below have co…
What Is This?
There's one of these buggers in every bag of my jerky and I don't know what it is.
I certainly didn't order it. Come to think of it, I didn't ask for that cotton at the top of my Advil bottle either, but I got some anyway.
Wait a minute...
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…
