The Pumpkin King!

Wouldja believe that in my whole life, I never carved a pumpkin? Until this week, that is! It was so fun! And then we baked the seeds – delicious! How could I have gone for 43 years and not experienced this before?! And yes, mid-way through the carving, I burst into a few “And I…JACK – the Pumpkin King!” refrains. Here’s a few pix of our creation:

Election ’09 Update

Election Day for Great Falls is almost here! We’re going to have a new Mayor – either Bill Bronson or Mike Winters. And we’ll get two new members of City Commission, from a field of four candidates: Fred Burow, Bob Jones, John Rosenbaum, and Donna Zook. Check out some videos of the candidates over at KRTV.

I’m partial to non-incumbents – and that extends not just to municipal elections, but ALL elections. See related post by Travis over at ECW. I don’t think ANY incumbent should feel safe in 2010, in fact.

And speaking of our election, Sandra notes some interesting disconnects in today’s Tribune – including a trip in the Wayback Machine to 2007!

Chaz Needs A Home!

Do you have a good, loving home for an adorable pup?

Chaz, this 11 month old, male Chocolate Labrador cross is up for adoption.
He is neutered, house broken, kennel trained and has been given all required shots and has been well taken care of.
Chaz is a kid friendly, energetic puppy with a big heart and loves a companion that can spend time playing and throwing a ball or stick so he can fetch it.
He even shows interest in birds when taken out to a field to run! When given the opportunity, he won’t hesitate to jump in the water to take a little swim, and will stick close by when walking off a leash.

This comes from a friend of mine, and you can contact him via his Craigslist posting.

UPDATE: got an e-mail – Chaz found a home!

Chaz was adopted by a good loving family. He will have a good country life the rest of his days. Lots of room to run and breathe. Thx again!

Election Update; New Blogs

The election is getting pretty close – have you decided who you’re going to vote for yet? There was a candidate debate last night, and Travis has some live-blogging notes so you can see how it went. Thanks Travis! Which reminds me: Burow and Zook have teamed up for a radio ad – have you heard it yet? Check it out here. I like that Fred incorporated his auctioneering skills into it!

A new Great Falls blog! Er…well, not FROM Great Falls, but from someone who grew up here and misses home. It’s called Things I Miss About Home…Great Falls, Montana. From her About page:

I live a long ways away from Great Falls now, but I miss home very much. I hope to someday come back home for good…unfortunately most of my relatives are out at Mt. Olivet cemetery now…I am trying to post on some of the best of Great Falls back when I was growing up….things that made Great Falls great.

And another Great Falls blog, this one from photographer Ali Brown – go say hi!
