Tiki Time!

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.

Steele Plated Signs

My buddy Kirsten and her hubby Tim make some neat things using Montana license plates: Check out their Facebook page for more info.


“Local”

From The Beet, which appears to be a Montana-based version of The Onion: “A native of Harlowton was mistakenly identified as a non-local Monday night because he wasn’t wearing a 406 T-shirt.” Heh. Not a lot there yet, but I hope to see more.

BORT

Oh, how I love Montana license plates! The county designations, the designs, the personalization. But don’t you even THINK about re-arranging the numerical order.

Sorry, Lincoln County, you’re stuck at #56 — and Gallatin County, you know I love you, but you will never be anything but #6. And I was pleasantly surprised to see a…


ELMO’S Highwood Bar

The Highwood Bar (previously) has a new owner, a new name, and even a new menu! The sale just happened a few days ago — Dave and his wife (both retired Air Force) bought it, and are doing some mild renovation and updating. And best of all — in addition to the regular and legendary Friday Steak Night, they are now serving a few other items ALL THE TIME! So on Sunday, my wife and…
