May has flown by, and I have been a pretty sorry blogger this month. To save myself from only having one post for the month, I thought I would share a few thoughts this evening.
First of all, Happy (belated) Memorial Day. Thanks to all of those who have served and continue to serve. The holiday weekend wouldn’t be the holiday weekend in Montana without snow, rain, or both, and this one was no exception. I spent the weekend at the ranch, AI-ing cows. Saturday morning I woke up to falling snow, and the steady rain Sunday turned our corrals into a bog hole. But we persevered and now all the cattle are out on grass for the summer!
Today, there was this orange globe in the sky…it gave off heat and hurt your eyes if you looked at it. I heard it was called “the sun”. Quite a change and a very welcome one at that!
Miles City survived the 2011 edition of the World Famous Miles City Bucking Horse Sale. It was soggy, but as the song says…the road goes on forever and the party never ends. It was great to catch up with old friends and the rain didn’t curtail the amount of fodder for social commentary. My particular favorite was the young ladies running out of the Olive into the deluge wearing plastic sacks on their heads to preserve their hair-dos. No rain coats, in fact no coats at all, but by God, SAVE YOUR HAIR-DO!
Have a great first day of June!
