I have just taken a new job in Great Falls, Montana. A new state and new areas to explore.

I just broiled an Italian Sausage for dinner, threw it on lettuce and some bread with a bit of mustard.
Then I lost her to the floor en-route to the red COMFY CHAIR. (I have no dinner table, as well as no real eating utensils. It is amazing what can be done with duct tape and tin foil. Almost EVERYTHING). But that sausage was good, as I saved and salvaged.
OK, crazy busy. Under control, only because we have three great new employees. But they are being trained. So there is a lot of training time. Which takes time away from my normal crazy stuff. Frankly, it is all a breath of fresh air. We needed it. But I did not. There are huge orders I am writing up, as it would be me checking the new girl anyway. I save a bit of time by doing it myself.
This is all I am doing. LOTSA ORDERS.
Normally we are very busy right now. But we are also selling to most of the Shell boats here. Now we are sending out the second orders to these boats. It gets interesting when I have to convert from metric. Lots of math just to see what we are talking about. Then we have many (MANY) special requests for items I have never heard of. We try to find them, and we spend a lot of time doing this. And we often find nothing. But we do not charge for that...
We are selling hundreds of pounds of red king crab. $21.50 a pound.
I have been over the PASS twice now, and I have been up Ballyhoo twice. My favorite views seen many times before.
I am not an early morning guy, even though I served fifteen years in the paint business having to open at 6 AM with an hour commute. LOVE being gone.
But now I am showing up at 6:30 - 8 AM, and staying until it is done. I normally have a cup of coffee for breakfast. Now I have no lunch, OK, a cuppla bananas. I get home around 7 and hungry.
I LOVE The British Open (I KNOW, EVERYONE LOVES GOLF). I saw very little of it this past weekend. There is a replay on TV late in the day, and I was able to see the last few holes of that. Ernie Els won. Adam Scott lost. More about Adam Scott having a lead and losing it in the last few holes. A really big sports story if you know about Ernie Els and his kid.
Has anyone noticed that van in my “front yard” is GONE? Towed away recently, although a pile of peripheral pile of metal remains.
Better than nothing,
