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

Well the big BIRTHDAY BASH WEEKEND is technically over, but my sister and her husband from Boise (Cyber and Senor Llave) are still here until this evening, so we will all go out to a final lunch today.
Dot Mom is already streaking toward 81.
Later today I plan on hitting Walmart and bulking up on the basics, from charcoal to cat litter, so that I leave town Weds set up for the near future.
Late yesterday afternoon we had a heavy rain here at the camp, another shower late last night. Storms likely later today and tonight. Rain is in the forecast for the next few days. The cruise could have a wet beginning, no big deal. There is a chance of severe weather here locally.
I spent most of Thursday getting LEGGS worked on to be ready for the cruise. Replacing a tire is not such a simple process with that big dog. Friday I dropped off my car and spent a bunch of money getting that ready.
The weekend was a big success. Friday we rented some interesting bicycles and rode across The Big Four railroad bridge. This is near downtown Louisville, a big old bridge that has been converted into a walking / biking bridge over the Ohio River and over to Indiana. The bikes are set up for two people pedaling, with your feet more in front of you rather than below. There is room for someone else in back. Dot Mom sat there. It was a tight spot that took some agility to get in and out.
It is 3 days later and my knees have almost recovered from the pedaling.
Saturday we saw BOOK OF MORMON. I think it is the only real Broadway production I have seen. It was great. The main characters were very talented. Normally dance numbers do not do much for me, but this was the exception. The dance moves were made to be humorous, and it was all very entertaining. There was a lot of profanity and some of the subject matter was pretty off-color. But we all knew it was coming, and it was pretty funny. The production was at Kentucky Center for the Arts. First time I had been there and it was an impressive venue. The place was packed.
Saturday night we had a nice dinner at home and several good family friends stopped by. I have plenty of pictures, most of them personal. But I have some that you should enjoy seeing, will try to post later.
Tomorrow night there will be a final dinner with the family.
48 hours from right now I will be pulling out.
