Hello neighbors, spring is really here now on the prairie. The green increases by the hour. Hope you are all dug out of any spring snow.
I am considering going to a couple of rodeos, any suggestions for the summer?

We always go to the Livingston rodeo, its a great one. They do fireworks right when its over. The Helena rodeo is a blast also, but thats a pretty long drive for you. Dont go to the Ennis rodeo, its way too long.

Milk sure was better then... maybe it didn't keep as well but it was richer and tasted better. Now I think they worry too much about skimming it exactly to just 4% butterfat, and of course the taste of aging sterilized milk does not bear discussion....
When I was in Jr. High we used to flag down the milk man and buy a pint (or quart if we were really flush) of chocolate milk to drink on the way to school. The other thing we used to love from the milk guy was a pint of frozen orange drink, you know the ones in the waxy paper carton that had a round paper lid. We'd tear off the top and go at it with spoons (the milk guy had wooden spoons).

Default Milkman keeps score !

An old friends dad was a milkman and my friend relayed a few wild stories, (maybe true, maybe not). Some of those delivery guys really made the rounds ! He said his dad wanted to put score count marks on the sides of his truck like dogfight pilots did on their fighter planes. (less painful than carving notches in the old ice cream stick) !
My friend was also a nature lover and always talked about beavers, We thought he would become a wildlife biologist or something but looking back I think he ended up working as a shoe salesman. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree I guess.

Rickers, me thinks your toe issues has left you with too much time on your hands, LOL
i do appreciate the gentlemanly way the posters tell their uh-um, stories.
I too find current milk in the store to really be undrinkable, what where is the bailey's? Now that is a good dairy product.

Oh I do like this porch... .

Sometimes it's luck, sometimes it's judgment but the forecast for next week-end is for the apparent temp to hit 104F due to disgustingly high humidity. That's ok though, I look and I gloat. I'll be in Montana.
