Hey 'tiberius' (ya old goat.. ) just 'funnin' with ya

if I'm not being too nosey..................how did you choose 'tiberius' for your screen name? It wouldn't be that you were born in 42 BC, and you've come back reincarnated as a loyal Montanan now would it?

OK , now serious stuff..........................

Re Wurzig's daughter.................... I think, but I'm not sure, I remember reading in one of her previous posts that the daughter has (2) years of "city college" under her belt. Now again, my memory (just like the 'ole Grey Mare) ain't would it used to be. But if that's the case she may be considering living off-campus, or maybe in the sorority house, if she elects to join one.. Who knows....I don't, I'm just guessin'! In any case, I'm hoping she chooses the UofM, I think she'd really like it..................course I'm a little biased.
Ketch ya later.

It was such a great place......so pristine.... Since living in S. California for over 34 years, I have only been a few times but the changes are great and so disappointing......so many chain restaurants, so much built up around the lake.......it is still one of my favorite places in the world to visit, but still, it makes me sad.....

Even the area where I currently live has greatly changed in the last 25 years......it has grown so much that we can barely see the stars at night...... I can understand how a true Montanan might feel about outsiders who come in with money and buy up all the land, plant developments, reroute the water........

If my girl goes to UM, I won't know what has been changed because it'll all be new to her/us......

That was a good-sized commute over winter roads......your girl was definitely on a mission to get it done!

I used to be a loyal fan of that show, even though he drove me nuts! I haven't seen it for, oh, maybe 3 seasons, but I caught about 10 minutes of one a few months ago......did his wife leave him? Seems like they met up somewhere and they weren't liviing together during that particular episode...

I like her friend, Wanda Sykes/Sikes......she's a pistol!

John is reading a poem, it is a couple of years old but he looks pretty good.
That face is very familiar....maybe I did see some of the Geographic specials after all......!

I too think that smaller is much better. Specially as a Junior. With smaller, it becomes much more personal. Friends are easier as there are not thousands to choose from. With smaller, you have less people to redicule or become clanish. There's not enough people to become a clan.

I've studied in a lot of schools. School of Mines, SD. Springfield, SD. Tampa, U of F. Texas A&M. San Diego, U of U. San Diego U of C. Hell, I can't even remember all of them. But I did learn that the smaller campuses afforded me the opportunity to meet and keep great friends. Smaller classes so I was able to learn more. The friends I met were true friends, not just college friends. Friends that I've kept up with through all the years. The bigger campuses, were just to get the credits I needed at the time. I have 86 upper level credits and 64 lower level credits. No more then 4 or 5 have ever been on one campus.

But your daughter has the opportunity of a lifetime to learn away from home. To get new ideas, to experience other cultures, ideas, ....

She would do great in Montana.

Next, you'll have to figure out where you want to live.

Default Snow pack

Hey Elkhunter.....................

My old college room mate from the early 1950's called me yesterday morning from Sheridan, Wy. He and his wife were on their way up to Dickinson, N.D. to visit her siblings, and they stayed overnight in Sheridan. He had to raze me about living in the "desert" of Montana. He knew that our Bitterroot montains only have 50% of our normal snow pack, where as he said he read in the local paper that the Powder River/Tounge River basin area has about 115% of normal!!!! Man, we sure could use some of that.............. How does that much increased spring run-off effect your fishing the local rivers and streams. I'm guessing it just takes longer than normal for them to run clear?

When are you leavin' for Alaska?

Man I fished for 2 hours today. It never did run clear. Although I caught 2 really nice Browns about 14 inches long. But I digress. hahaha

I live along the Tonge. We are at about 60% of normal for water. The big rez on the hill is hurtin.

Believe me. The River runs clear where I fish. hahahaha
