Pretty much the most awesome birthday a guy could ever hope for!
As much as I have loved Great Falls radio, it has fallen too far in the last couple of years, and I *needed* to have more options. To the rescue — my wife, with the AWESOME gift of a Sirius-XM radio for my car! Check out this action:
I will still listen to Great Falls radio occasionally, but holy cow — having satellite radio in the car is just…beyond happy.
Then some amazing, thoughtful, loving, and kind well-wishes from family and friends, primarily via Facebook. All VERY much appreciated — especially this one from my amazing friend Kelly (owner of Treat Animal Wellness down in Boz!) — this has got to be the MOST AMAZING BIRTHDAY CARD / GRAPHIC / IMAGE EVER CREATED IN ALL OF HISTORY. Thank you Kelly!
(Remember, kids — there is never NOT a good time for DOGE.)
Then I got asked to do a voice-over for a TV commercial — pretty much one of my dreams in life — woohoo! No word yet on when it will air, will let you know.
Then off to a tasty lobster dinner at Dante’s with my wife — excellent service from Ryan, a former co-worker and all-around great guy — and who surprised me with this sinfully delicious chocolate-lava slice of cake!
And what better way to top off a birthday in Great Falls than stopping in at the Sip-n-Dip to hear the legendary Piano Pat?
Now THIS is a nifty “sponsored post” on Facebook that got my attention — “We dare you to find a better burger in great falls.”
It was actually brought to my attention by my wife when she was cruising Facebook last night — she asked me where the Bighorn Bar & Grill is at, and I thought for a minute, and said I didn’t know. She said, “Well, you liked it on Facebook…”
Uh…I did? Turns out that I did indeed — back when it was called Mary’s Midway! It’s the place along Vaughn Frontage Road kind of across the street from Cattlemen’s Cut.
We’d been to Mary’s a few times — good stuff, nice relaxed atmosphere — but not in the last few years. But now apparently it’s got a new owner and a new name — very cool.
So – the Bighorn has issued a challenge! Can’t wait to head out there this weekend and try a burger!
We enjoyed lunch on Friday at the Family Affair restaurant — our first time there!
It’s tucked along the east side of the Snyder’s/Van’s building along 7th Avenue North between 25th and 26th Street. It’s small inside — only 11 tables, very cozy. Nothing fancy — just home-cooked meals. The waitress said that they have been there for 40 years, but based on talking with some friends and co-workers, it’s pretty much a hidden gem — not a lot of people know about it.
…and speaking of personalized license plate — I stopped by the Townhouse Inn on Friday to check on the Great Falls Gaming Rendezvous, and of course saw this license plate in the parking lot.
Ack. Typos happen, I know — but getting the name wrong of your own sponsored event is awkward!
“Want Women Want” sounds like some sort of cavemen-esque plea.
Never quite imagined that Great Falls would be a target audience for a team of “flippers,” but…well, maybe it is.
Mike “The Flip Man” Baird from Spike’s hit show, Flip Men, and Greg “The Bank” Herlean have teamed up to build one of the fastest growing and most profitable real estate investing businesses in the country. Now, Mike and Greg have turned their strategies for investing into an educational program that has helped people, just like you, start their own real estate business.
