The Kolden Report: Montana Back Roads, Part Twelve, Thanksgiving, November 28, 2013

Hello, kids!

 I am reminiscing about holiday gatherings of the past and one particular memory floated to the forefront.  In years past, when my eldest nephews and nieces were younger than ten, they wanted to put on a show before Thanksgiving dinner.  Being one to accommodate the creative urges of small children, I agreed to be the emcee for their show.  Since there were two families of children involved, they wanted a bit of practice before putting on their show, which was a lively and hip activity of the day.....break dancing!  When all was ready, I announced the events that were about to unfold and cued the music after which much physical activity ensued....Gram's kitchen full of small children break dancing to a beat.  Wish I had recorded the event, especially since most of those tiny children now have children of their own. 

Happy Thanksgiving everybody!    I wish you all peace and the joy of loved ones today, as you create the memories of tomorrow.

And now, back to Gibson Dam.

The did good work in 1929 but WHAT is USR?

An iron handle in stone but for what purpose?  To anchor something?

There's always ONE in every crowd.

Make your mark.


A bit bigger picture.

Both barrels.

The biggest picture.

Fall fronds.

It's the simple things.

Proof that change IS beautiful.
