June in Montana: We had scheduled an appointment to have our air-conditioning system get a “check up” now that summer is almost here. Tech was supposed to come today…but a few minutes after 8 a.m., we got a voicemail from the company saying that it is TOO COLD for them to perform the maintenance check – said that it needs to be at least 60 degrees, and with the current temp at 49 degrees and not much hope for a big warm-up, they would need to re-schedule.

Hope whoever did this gets caught. If you know who did it, call GFPD Crimestoppers at 406-727-8477. From the Trib: The “rainboffalo” statue that has greeted passers-by along the River’s Edge Trial at the east end of the 1st Avenue North Bridge since 2009 was vandalized sometime in the past several days, losing its fins to criminal mischief.

Looks like Mr. Wise dry cleaners — in the building on the SW corner of the mall parking lot — has packed it up. Only used them once, for some new bedding, they sure were nice folks.
