On another somewhat rare opportunity on this trip I got bicycling again. I got out in the coolness of 7:30 a.m. for a nice one. And luck shined on me.


THEN — I got the luck. I looked down and right at my front wheel was this…

Initially I was sure it was either fake or torn in half. But it was a whole 20!!!

Along the country road there were a couple of IMPERFECTS…

This last one may not fly as PATTERNS, but at least the small rocks have patterns ;’-).

A little more about my/our day is on my blog for today —

It is HOT HOT HOT here. Thankful for cool early morning ride.

    Very good work!
    Some one said the best way to find money is when you are not looking for it. Excellent find! Some Mad Money there!
    The F 150 is pretty typical for Montana pickups — and yes I have been there — wonder if there is a relationship between the truck and the guard rail? Seen that too.
    Not to mention the little white crosses along the roadsides.
    Nice petrological patterns there too!

      We have been seeing a lot of those little white crosses. It is very unnerving! Too many in some places.

    Looks like a fun SOTF meet-up. Love the picture with your knee socks! 🙂 Nice pillow case you made, too. That is a beautiful and creative choice of fabrics.

      The motto of the SOTF is “we have more fun than anyone”. I’m not sure that is totally true, but they do have fun. Thanks for your encouraging words about my creative choice of fabrics for my pillow case ;’-).

    The Feeshko and I have driven through that beautiful area many times on our annual trips from My Town to Spokane. One year, we did it over Labor Day weekend. On the second day, we were confident we could get a motel room in the big city of Missoula after a long day of driving. No way! Every room in town was filled up. So was every room at every motel between Missoula and St. Regis. The guy at the St. Regis Super 8 called a number of motels up the road to see if there were any vacancies. Thank goodness, he found us a room at the Silver Dollar Inn in Haugen because it was already late at night and we were very tired. Since then, we’ve stayed at that place several times–not because we care about the Silver Dollar tourist trap–but because the inn is the most dog-friendly place we’ve ever seen. Diggity loves it. Also, there is an interesting Historic Tree Nursery within walking distance. I’m not a big fan of trees, but that place was quite cool.

    We go through or visit the area quite often for different events and visits with friends. There is a lot of beauty around once you can stay off the interstate ;’-).
