Bison Day!

I recently had one of the most wonderful experiences of my life – I got to visit some bison! Roy and Shellie have a small bison ranch near Great Falls, and they were kind enough to let us visit a few weeks ago. The young bison are out front; they are about a year old. They absolutely *love* eating loaves of bread (from JJs bakery!). The smallest one is named Goliath, and he was a…


Fire Evacs

Tuesday’s fire hit close to home – literally. For the first time that I can remember, there were some evacuations ordered in Great Falls. People living on the extreme north side of Skyline neighborhood – along with residents of Countryside Village just a little to the east – were ordered to evacuate at about 6 p.m. last night, as the fire and smoke from a field fire got closer. The fire, believed to have been…


14 Years!

Today marks 14 years since I arrived in Great Falls. I truly can not put into words how happy it makes me. A few months ago, at about 13 years + 8 month, this officially became the place where I have lived longer than anywhere else in my life (although that previous record was set during two periods in one hellish location). As a military brat who then spent 20 years on active duty, “home”…


Please, Please

Also kick-ass French fries, and an internet-connected jukebox that lets me groove to my heart’s content. PLUS super-friendly service. Seriously. Yes, the sign is admittedly pretty yucky, but I ain’t picking places to eat based on the restrooms.


Charred Remains

This is what’s left of the building that was destroyed by fire a few weeks ago. The fire happened on Friday, July 1st, on the south side of Central Avenue West behind Payless Furniture. The cause of the fire is “un-determined.”


Dog Dress

Spotted this at Petcetera (I think?) on 10th Avenue South a few weeks ago. I don’t know what’s better – the look on the poor dog’s face, or some of the comments it got when I shared it on Facebook with the caption “omg”: Frankie Hopkins: Omg indeed, $18 for a dog dress is outrageous!! MontiLee Stormer: Who hates their dog that much and why isn’t the ASPCA involved? Nate Smith: KNOW A FEW REZ…
