When I first arrived in Montana back in 2002, I noticed a lot of bears. Not real bears – the carved wooden bears that adorn so many porches and patios and front yards. Adorable!
In all the places I lived and traveled to, I never saw such a display of state-specific art at so many homes.
Of course, I had to get one for my front porch, and before long, I had doubled-up.
But last summer, my wife had a brilliant idea. We both love tiki-themed stuff — home decor, music, etc — and she wondered if someone could create a tiki for us.
Lo and behold — we found Fallis Family Wood up near Fort Benton, and they created this marvelous piece for us.
They even delivered it and put it in place.
Total cost: under $200.
They make all kinds of carvings — awesome stuff.

NINE NINE NINE. I REPEAT: NINE NINE NINE.
I love it when companies make it so easy to Doge-ify their products:
Dropped in to the new Do Bar for the first time ever, and I ran into these fine folks!
Yup, more snow — more than 13 inches during the past several days. Winter wonderland, indeed — beautiful!

WE’VE GOT SPIRIT, YES WE DO!
WE’VE GOT SPIRIT, HOW ‘BOUT YOU?
My friend Kelly snapped this photo near Bozeman, and it seemed perfectly suited to a little doge-izing.
A few random photos:
Sign at 2-J’s — always cracks me up — smart chicken!
In the parking lot of the Longhorn Casino — sweet oranges for sale, with a convenient “drive-thru!”
And a classic – mad cow! It’s the backing from a pack of fridge magnets.
