Tuesday, January 3, 2012

Back last winter, during our travels, I got a message from a woman from New Zealand, inquiring about winter travel in Montana. She found my blog on this site and contacted me.  And today, believe it or not, she, Tracey and her husband Fred showed up in Helena.  They were accompanied by their two children, Kate and Josh. We had a great visit.  They've been in North America for nearly two weeks.  They are in West Yellowstone now and anticipating seeing some snow to enjoy.

It truly is a small world. Who would have thought that such could actually happen?  With all of the wonders of God's world, it gets even smaller.  Communication is simplified...  We enjoyed our new friends very much.  They gifted us with a beautiful calendar from their homeland.  Many thanks for that.  

We're now in the preparation stages for our next excursion.  Shorty is just outside waiting.  I installed a new grab-bar on the screen door and plugged him to get ready to heat him up soon.  The weather here has been beautiful, with temps in the high forties.  The ten-day forecast looks good for our departure next Tuesday.  We'll keep you posted on what happens here. 

It's always good to hear from you all, so please keep in touch...
