Warm Memories Melt Winter Blahs

Warm Memories Melt Winter Blahs

It’s February. It’s cold. And there’s 2 feet of snow outside. Time to warm up my frozen soul with some warm memories of July 2013. How many of us can’t wait to plant our flower pots when the sun warms us up in Spring? Another baby for Nana to love. My heart was full… I […]

Hard Workin’ Man

Hard Workin’ Man

Dirty work hat and coat + handsome face = My Montana Man… Hard working…and good looking too. I may be partial. But the thing I love most about this photo is that Wade’s humble soul is obvious. At least to me. I don’t say it enough, but “Thank You” Wade…For all the things you do […]

Got Milk?

Got Milk?

Here’s another photo I love, love, love. It was taken by our niece, Heidi Joe, on one of her visits from Alaska when she was growing up. Our 5 kids were raised on pure, fresh cow’s milk. We went through at least a gallon a day…most days even more than that between their drinking it […]

This Week in History ~ July, 2009

A few photos I love from July’s past. Whitnee and Wade moved this bunch of cow/calf pairs 8 miles to their summer pasture in July, 2009. It is so brown in this photo…not enough rain that year. We were nervous about having enough water and grass to pasture our cattle for the summer months. I […]

Circa 1974 Blue Bikini

Circa 1974 Blue Bikini

Stuff I love….this old photo…and my circa 1974 blue bikini. I wore that bikini every day….all day…and night….all summer. Riding bikes, playing tennis, camping out in the back yard, playing baseball…and of course, at the beach. Well, our ‘beach‘ was “Lake Grace” in Minnesota…land of 10,000 lakes. I am quite sure my mom happily threw […]

Wade’s Pop On His Horse ~ 1950

Wade’s Pop On His Horse ~ 1950

Anyone who’s spent any time around here knows how much I love this photo of Wade’s “Pop” from 1950. Harold “Kink” Kinkelaar posed for this shot in order to show his family in Illinois something about his new life here in Montana. “Kink” proudly wrote on the back of the photo, “My Car, My Horse, […]
