Your rates are fair enough. "bubblers" as I have known them all my life, are where you get a drink of water from. Usually found set into a wall or sometimes freestanding in a park. Never thought about the aquarium aspect of the term but you got a point there.
I'm a bit suspect of the fella that said "it's a creek". Apparently, I will only owe him $1.
I guess until I know for sure, I'll simply ask for a drink of water.

Now that y'all mention it... a drinking fountain is where you drink. A water fountain is where you throw coins in for luck, or pick a few coins out so you can go to the soda fountain.

I just heard from my friend in Havre that the "gnats" are getting really bad. They kill birds, etc. Can anyone tell be more about these critters? Are they flies? Are they no-see-ums?

There are a lot of strange-named, very small towns in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, too....the Amish area. Seems like some are Bird in Hand, Paradise, Ball, Intercourse, Fertility.... And 3 out of 5 people are named Stoltzfus, (at least it felt that way).

I ran across a new show on tv last night: It's called Last American Cowboy. Last American Cowboy : Animal Planet Apparently the series began June 7th, so I missed the first episode. The show is filmed in Montana and features three different ranching families. The series is the latest in the run on "reality tv" shows but last night's episode showed calving in a blizzard...can't get any more "real" than that- it's a rough lifestyle and I applaud those who make their living at it. Has anyone else seen this show or possibly know the families involved?

I saw it also, yep that is a rough way to make a living. But you bet they wouldn't change it for anything.
Hey check the weather thread, EH is watching out for us. Here is a link to the show.

Thumbs up I want to see some action !

Well it looks like we may be getting a bit of action in my neck of the woods. I'll be there if it's not too rainy or bumpy out there in one of my little plastic boats. I want to see some action !

Hydroplanes in Trout Creek!!! That's so cool! Too bad I can't make it--could you take some pics and post them? If they make it an annual event, I'll put it on our calendar for next year. What a great story about the Phillips family--a superb illustration of the Carpe Diem principle! Have fun at the event, and good luck with the weather! Apparently a lot of people from North Idaho will be participating, so I'll add the event to our June Events thread over on the Idaho forum.

Wow that was some storm last night.
This spring is sure different from any other I have had over here. The cottonwoods were literally bowed over to the ground. Not one branch off thought. Amazing.
Well, it looks like hubs and I will be in the Flathead lake area next week. Looking forward to seeing the sights. He might drop a line in the water
Me? I just want to see a moose.
