October 2019

Summer went by way too fast, but at least it means the most wonderful time of the year is here: fall! All three days of it, here in North Dakota! I guess I shouldn’t complain, though. Usually we’ve had a solid killing frost by now, but our temperatures have been pretty mild. Montana is in… Continue Reading


September 2019

Well! I guess you can tell how my July/August went, considering I completely missed the August post! Part of the problem is just summer in North Dakota. Our good-weather-season is so short that you want to try and suck every bit of life out of it that you can. And with this being the first… Continue Reading

The story centers on several… Continue Reading

March 2019

The best-laid plans, and all that… I didn’t expect to still be posting a blog here. I parked my website here a year ago, intending to move it somewhere else…eventually.
