This Picture is Worth A Few Words



My girlfriend left her suburban existence to live in Montana.  Here's a picture from the balcony of her log house looking down at the fireplace area of her living room.  The rocking chair was made by the Amish in Indiana near where she grew up. There's a great view of the mountains out the windows to your left. And there's a footbridge over a stream that cuts through a patch of trees behind her house, if you walk over and look out the windows to your right.

She calls to tell me that there's a small herd of elk sleeping out on her front lawn. And a bald eagle sitting on her fence. I call her to complain that the construction guys are leaving soda pop cans on my lawn and a flock of birds pooped on my car.

Does she have any kids? Does she want one?? Remo is mighty handy with a ballpeen.

there has to be a down side
maybe I don't want to know
my dream is to have a bit of land
in between me
and my neighbors

I want to go there!  Does your girlfriend have a guest room?

You forgot to tell her about the cicada cemetery on your lawn. Does she have them even worse?

That sounds so lovely...tell her we will all be at her B&B next week!

A nice BB gun from Walmart will take care of the construction workers AND that damn flock of birds ;)

Besides.....can you imagine the aerial bombardment from that EAGLE of hers?


Have a great weekend!
