Way back in the middle part of the last century, I remember hearing some adults talking about a woman who they obviously were not pleased with.

And that’s what yesterday was. It was a damp, gray morning, with the clouds hanging low in the sky. […]

It was miserably hot in Montana yesterday, but we covered a lot of miles and saw some pretty scenery in spite of the heat. Believe me, it was better to see it from inside our air conditioned motorhome than being outside in it! We left Indian Creek Campground in Deer Lodge, headed east, and even […]
