Nice Start To Monday. Thunder!

Was woken up by thunder (and lightning) at 0350 this morning. Managed to go back to sleep. But was raining pretty hard when I finally got up at 0600. Love lightning. Love thunder. Wish there had been more of it.

I don’t think I posted last night. Probably because I was tired. SWMBO and I spent the day at her folks and started doing “stuff” for them. Decided to take a short tour of the hot tub when we got back to the hotel. Nice. SWMBO was looking excellent in her black one-piece suit. I was looking my fat, old, usual self.
Today was pretty much SSDD after the rain. Turned out to be a pretty nice day after the clouds cleared out. We spent most of the day at the Folks but made a run to Meijer’s for some dinner makings. Tonight we made chili baked taters. Tomorrow I’m going to make a beef stew. We’ll see how it goes from there.

SWMBO mostly spent the day with her mom and I spent most of the day with her dad. Fixed a couple of computer problems he’s been having and set up that NAS I sent him a few months ago. Talked a lot about them maybe moving out to our place. (Which would be nice.)

And that’s about it. SWMBO has some studying to do. (I’m sleeping with a COED!!!!) So I went outside and had a really nice conversation with some guys on one of the local repeaters. Handheld worked really well. Back inside getting settled in for the night.

Trip – Day 2

Didn’t post last night cause I was so tired! I got up at 0300, got her up at 0330, and we were out of the house by 0400. Wow! Missed all that early morning traffic in the Seattle area, got on Highway 18 to I-90 and stopped in Deer Lodge, Montana 12 hours later.

Today we hit the road about 0700 and have just stopped in Moorcroft(?), Wyoming for the night. We decided to stay here andn go see the Devil’s Tower tomorrow morning; since we’re not in a real rush to get to Toledo.

My Goodness! The scenery we’ve seen these past two days! Wonderful. Beautiful. Majestic. I could live in Montana. (In the Summer. Not butt-deep in freezing cold during the Winter. I’m a real cold Wx pussy.) But, if not for Winter, I could live in Montana.

Anyway. Just wanted to check in. I’m gonna to shower and lay down. Almost 1100 miles so far. Phew!
