 Greetings all.

More white stuff through the weekend on through tomorrow. About all there is to say weather wise. It’s Montana in the winter. ::)

My weekend was spent in Great Falls for the monthly giving of time to Uncle Sam. They held the unit Christmas party on Saturday, but my whole flight was excused for having helped arrange chairs. We took the opportunity to go bowling. I also acquired a cold from somewhere which has been less than pleasant.

On the topic of snakes: we once had a 5 foot prairie rattler get in the hanger at the Guard base. They were going to call a local “snake wrangler” to come get it, but instead someone just ran it over with a scissor lift and that was that.

G'morning folks! 56 here right now, pouring rain AND foggy [huh?] anyway supposed to hit 65 today and be mild and wet the rest of the week. Going to the eye doc today for check up and new glasses. Lady C is finally over her cold, so that is good news. Y'all have a good day!

Morning all, on The Day That Lives in Infamy.

Still cold and snowy here, per usual. Had an early kid that required getting up at 4, now getting ready for a trip to Seeley Lake to rescue a diner.

I fell down a lot rescuing that diner. We’ll just say the crew that runs the diner has a maintenance department with a single brain cell between them, and nobody brought it to work today. ::)

For reference, their method of snow removal is to spray the parking lot with a garden hose. Works out great when it’s below freezing.

My counterpart (other curator) neglected to inform the fact that we had 40 member ROTC group
scheduled for today.
Now normally we co-work on Wednesday, so he just didn't put it in the monthly planner.
Imagine, my surprise, by both that revelation and the fact he was not coming today, switching to * Saturday
(*The big finally to our Pearl Harbor observance) 

No real problem, He had scheduled a volunteer docent, and the Kids (High School ROTC Marines) were VERY WELL behaved (remembering what school field trips can be like with eh ! kids today. ::)

I would expect ROTC Marines to be well behaved, but it is still noteworthy of comment.

They were very polite, attentive and grateful... I was impressed :) 

One day some of them may be Officers in the Corp.

Like John Saffren's Grandson, a Second Lieutenant in the Marines, from an ROTC program, I know he is proud of him.

Slept in yesterday, and took two power naps throughout the day   :P
Not sure why I was so tried, didn't feel bad....
Was a little icky feeling mid-day on the 7th. drank a 7-up and that settled my innards.
By 6PM and closing, I was quite hungry I decided to go to my favorite Chinese Buffet.
They have quite the selection of seafoods I sampled. Maybe that was the thing with being tried  ???

Morning all.

20 degrees and mostly sunny here. The “calm before the storm” as it were. Supposed to get hit with subzero temps and heavy wind/snow this week.

Todays schedule calls for a trip to the store for vittles, and the dehydrating of several zucchini. Followed by scooping horse poop. Lucky me ::)

We raised over $1200, for Seaman Don Dittmer, WW 2 Merchant Mariner, 94 years young.
 He lost all of his belongings in Hurricane Ian in September.
He received a Congressional Gold Medal, in a ceremony we hosted just before Ian hit Florida...
A grand old fellow, sharp as a tack and of great humor

I was handed (donation from an American Legion Post) a few interesting items for the museum.
Among them was a salted peanut can of bullets... not many but they were way COOL.

 Seven antique- 41 cal. LONG CASE. Headstamped * PETERS 41 LDA and four- 41 cal. short (no headstamp)
all eleven were Centerfire & heel-based bullets

The fellow that donated them " said they thought they were CW era, I told him they were Centerfire
and later mid 1970's or so.
I'm not sure when these were last manufactured, being an obsolete round,
I'm guessing maybe the late 20's or 30's ... course the guns they fit had long since been obsolete."
This can have been sitting around, in storage many years, he had no clue how many nor whom might have brought then to the VFW.


* 41 Long Double Action

The shorts are not head stamped

I'm not sure what I'll do, I really can't have loaded rounds on display (liability)
I may unload them, and maybe put them in the Span-Am exhibit  :-\

I'll post this in the re-loading forum too.

Pork Chops on the grill last night. 1-1/2" thick and juicy. They were from a nearby Amish Market. Followed by some wine and a cigar while listening to Rock & Roll from the Fifties.  Anybody remember Little Darling by the Diamonds?
I remember listening to that song in my 53' Ford.
