It’s official: we are grandparents! Wait – not like that!
What it means is that my daughter and her boyfriend became “parents” of an adorable little baby girl hedgehog a few days ago! So now my wife and I consider ourselves to be grand-parents, and Ziggy is an uncle 😀
Her name is Luna, and she is – how do the kids talk these days? – totes adorbs! Don’t believe me? Look!
So smart – already mastered the art of running inside a plastic ball.
One of my favorite photos of 2013 — when a moose wandered onto the green the Hickory Swing Golf Course.
As FWP was keeping tabs on it, a cat just sort of wandered by – cruised right by the moose – they didn’t acknowledge each other, and the cat just kept going, walking along the rail of the train tracks.
So here we have one mellow moose, a couple of dedicated golfers, and one random cat (click the pic for deets and video):
Whoa – LobsterFest snuck up on us this year! Unlike last year, we decided to beat the rush by getting there at 3:30 on Thursday afternoon – ahead of the dinner crowd.
But just like last year, it was absolutely PERFECT. The food, the service, the atmosphere – the Montana Club knocked it out of the park. Special shout-out to Danyel, Amber, Joe (Clay!), and Joanna for the amazing service!
We are seriously considering another run on Sunday…and it crossed my mind that I could probably down two lobster tails, instead of one tail and one slice of prime rib…decisions, decisions.
Here’s shots of today’s late lunch/early dinner — tail and prime for me, and Lobster Newburg for my wife:
Here is my happy contribution to the day: two squirrels seen a few days ago at (the newest?) collectible/antique store in town – Central Avenue Antiques & Second Hand on the 600 block of (duh) Central Avenue. They’ve been open for a bit over two months, and my first trip there was GREAT. They have lots of coooooool stuff. If you’re a collectibles junkie, you need to check it out.
Anyway – on with the squirrels!
I’m also happy to report that Governor Bullock even acknowledged the festivity of Squirrel Appreciation Day – he gave a Twitter shout-out to Squirrel Thoughts!
