Home Again…

We made it home in fine fashion.  I drove the first leg until about noon, when we stopped in a rest area somewhere about a hundred or so miles from Coeur d'Alene.  The road was good with only a wet section here and there.  Lynn drove us on into Missoula where we stopped at St. Pat's Hospital.  A friend, one of the multitudinous Mikes, was in hospital there and I didn't want to miss an opportunity to drop in and check out his progress.  He was, and still is, doing grand and is back in Helena as I write this.  I drove the last leg from Garrison on in, since Lynn isn't crazy about the two lane action.
The weather took a tricky turn on Friday afternoon and hit us with a wee bit of snow again.  By Saturday morn, we've acquired about three inches of the glorious stuff. I'm a fan of winter, having been raised in Butte and spent many years on the "slopes" and XC trails and enjoyed it.
We got the driveway cleared and went off to Costco to gas up and pick up some necessities.  I did hit a noon meeting again today, so am once again in the flow of life in Helena.  With the intemperate weather, we walked about two miles in the Mall to help balance the Victual Input, so to speak.
I finally checked the photos in my "good camera," the Fuji and have these posted on Flickr.  There's a video/movie included, and with past problems putting such things up here, I've put the who lot on Flickr.  The link is >>>>
Some of the photos are from before Christmas, some from our celebration with Joe and Mel, our son and daughter-in-law and a few have just been taken.  Check them out if you are interested.
Wherever you are, we wish you a Healthy and Prosperous 2014.  We hope that our paths cross soon and often.  Thanks again for stopping by.
