Back to Work

How was your Fourth of July? We enjoyed the parade in Red Lodge and had a modest houseful for barbecue. Everything went well - the homemade ice cream was definitely soft serve but tasty. Better the next day! We enjoyed all our company but especially the grand nieces, 3 and 5.

Kate and I are helping John get packed for his workshops in Flagstaff Arizona. The following weekend is a state convention in Chadron, Nebraska so he will be on the road and on the road and on the road. I will post pictures of some of the kits he is taking later - there are some nice ones.

You might be interested in what T Boone Pickens is saying about wind power, about foreign oil, about natural gas and about the presidential campaign. For myself, I do think it is really unfortunate to depend on the countries who hate us for such an important commodity. You can check him out at this link.

Stay cool!

I'm going to be watching for you at Chadron - unfortunately I did NOT get John's class but ... DID get others. No matter what, we folks will have a great time!

Hello Elaine - if you have time, go to his lecture - lots of quilts and the lecture is pretty funny. Have a great time in Chadron!

It was lovely reading your delightful blog. My family used to stop in Red Lodge each summer while we traveled back to South Dakota and all over Montana each year. We always had a wonderful picnic at some park there and had homemade sandwiches, chips and Mom's cookies. I love the memory of that place and that time. So much better than fast food.
Love the riot of color in the quilts too!

Mary Lou - do you remember the See 'Em Alive Zoo? And the gas station across the road that had the little bear cub? You could buy him a Coke, in a glass bottle, and he would hold it in his paws and gulp it right down. (We never got to do buy the bear a Coke.)
