Starbucks was PACKED this morning – amazing how many people were there! They’re closing at 6:00 pm this evening, but don’t worry — they’re opening up at 3:00 a.m. tomorrow (Friday). That’s right – THREE O’CLOCK IN THE MORNING, so that folks who plan to do some way-early Black Friday shopping can get hopped up on caffeine and be ready to do battle.
Almost time for the annual downtown Christmas Stroll – which means it’s also time for the annual Polar Plunge! Of course KRTV is fielding a team this year, and soliciting donations to support Special Olympics. Katie, Kay, and Shannon are on board to take the Plunge – and it looks like a contest between Heath and Richie for the fourth slot on the team. Heath took the Plunge last year, so he’s a veteran; on the other hand, Richie is Cosmo’s “Hottest Montana Bachelor,” so it looks like he has a built-in fan base.
Click here to visit the TEAM KRTV donation page, and if you can spare a few bucks, be sure to cast a vote for either Heath or Richie! BTW, the Stroll and Plunge will be on Friday, December 4th.
Jenny has a new fiction blog and wants constructive criticism – go see for yourself at http://eventidearcane.blogspot.com/.
Little Caesars was GREAT! You can’t beat a $5 large pepperoni pizza – always ready when you walk in the door. Both times I’ve been there the folks have been cranking out the pizza like there’s no tomorrow, and they say that business has been amazing. The only thing better than the pizza: CRAZY BREAD! That stuff is unbelievable.
Went with Sears for the new tires – thanks for the advice, all!
A bit of a history mystery concerning a “bridge to nowhere” over by Geraldine; the Historical Fort Benton blog is looking for some information. Can you help?
Don’t forget: still time to get some raffle tickets for therapeutic massage from Beatrix!
Heh…cruising along 2nd Avenue North and we spotted this festive preparation for the holidays. No, it’s not our house, despite the name.
By the way – there is another David Sherman in Great Falls – we were both active-duty Air Force together (but different units) at Malmstrom, and both retired within a few months of each other. We often got e-mails meant for the other one, and jokingly referred to each other as an “evil twin,” (clone?) or told people, “No, actually, I’m the good-looking David Sherman, not the other one!” Super nice guy.
Need some advice, gang: have to get four new tires and new brakes for a Ford Explorer. Sears, Midas, Firestone, Mountain Tire, Tire-Rama, other local shops – any recommendations or cautions?
