Back to Mtse

I have my work done for this trip. Paid all the bills, did washing, picked sticks out of yard, watered plants, and other regular household chores. Put different pics on flickr. No time to start any other projects so I'll just go back to Meeteetse. Saturday is the open house for the opening of the doll display at the Museum, library stuff on Feb 13th and 18th, open house for the new highway department building on the 10th. All the fun stuff. Probably have to sweep snow this weekend, then again, maybe not. One never knows about these groundhogs. Tricky little fellows.

Groundhog's Day

February 2 is a big day for groundhogs. Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow, as you can see in the pic, and ran back in his hole. I saw my shadow too when Gma took me out for breakfast. Then it got cloudy and overcast so didn't see it again all day. It's rather pleasant now, but in a few days we will get weather again. Be prepared.

Saturday night the Mtse gang took me out to dinner at Kirby (between Worland & Thermop). It was fun. Arlene brought a cherry cheesecake for dessert and I had a candle on it and the waitresses sang Happy Birthday to me. It was a different version than the usual, but was real cute. Then they took my pic with my piece of cheesecake. I'll have to get the pics off my camera and post them to flickr. We took a new route to Kirby. It's really an old way, but I've never been on that road before, so will have to show it to you sometime. Its a gravel road most of the way, but kind of interesting scenery. Will have to go over it again sometime in the summer when I can take pics of the sand rock formations. It was the Cottonwood Creek road, I think.

My Darling Daughter took me out to the movie tonight. Was a Clint Eastwood vehicle, Gran Torino. Not what I was expecting, but was good anyway. Good entertaining way to finish up the birthday.

I'll be here until Thursday so will have time for new pics.
