The Breakfast Flakes

Summer Vacation
We're back to work after a couple of weeks off. I traveled quite a bit, seeing both Portland to the west and Mt Rushmore to the East.
While we were away, Burt Reynolds died. As did Ed King. He wrote the music for "Sweet Home Alabama"...
Room With A View
Really foggy today in Billings. The only thing you could see this morning on the rims was the control tower. We do have a great room with a view! By the way we are going on vacation for a few weeks, so when we get back we'll get to work giving you a chance for a trip of a lifetime with a v…
Lazy
I know a thing or two about being lazy. After all, I was once a teenage boy. And lazy appealed to me. So, I know lazy when I see it.
And this picture is the epitome of lazy. You couldn't push the cart 5 feet around the rail so it wouldn't block a parking place...
State Sport
California has just made surfing their official state sport. I was wondering what Montana's would be? It would have to be the most popular among its residents. Perhaps skiing, fishing, hunting? Then it hit me, it’s probably drinking. Yeah it's definitely drinking, at least …
Is It Worse these Days?
Today’s blog is really just more of a survey. Do you think that today’s drivers are more aggressive? I mean, there have always been people who zip in and out of traffic. But do you think the percentage of drivers on the roads drive more aggressively while being more l…
Start Of School
It seems like all the schools are starting at different times now. It would seem to me that if all public schools were on the same schedule, it would help to make things safer. Everyone would know when a kid should be out and when they should be in...
Hunters Safety Classes
With the kids headed back to school, it's also time to get them signed up for Hunters Safety classes. Which is easier to do than ever before, due to technology. And you don't have to be a kid. There are classes for the grown-ups as well...
Friday Randomness
Got stung by a wasp yesterday while golfing. It didn't affect my swing. I was still able to hit a tree quite a ways in.
I was in line at a fast food restaurant when I heard the interaction at the drive thru window. "I'm sorry ma'am, but your card was declined"...
On The Move
We had a visitor last night on the driveway. It's the time of year when they are on the move looking for warmth or water. Just the first of many that will be wanting our vote.  Get it? Venomous snakes..... Have a good weekend, see ya Monday...
A Token Deal
The fair needs to offer the token deal in the evening too. At lunch you can get in, eat, then leave within 2 hours and there's no admission charge.Tons of people would love to go at dinner, eat and then leave within 2 hours. It would raise the concession revenue substantially...
If There Is Anything That I Can Do, Let Me Know
Today's blog idea comes from my friend, Roy Brown, who posted the idea and asking people to pass it along. And I've actually posted this idea before.
Shortly before my brother lost his battle with cancer, I would often hear people say "If there's anything I can do, just let me…
How Much I’ve Spent ON…
I always thank my grandfather and great uncle who got me into golf at an early age. But, I also wonder how much money I've thrown at the sport since the mid 70's. It's hundred of thousands of dollars.
When you consider green fees, clubs, balls, tees, range finders, gps units, pull carts, cart rentals…
