Smell the End of My Blog Post

The skies were smoke-hazy all day yesterday.  We're thankful the forest fires aren't nearby, and we sent up prayers for those affected by them.

The USAToday isn't sold anywhere in the Flathead Valley as far as we can tell so, as newspaper addicts, we settled for The Missoulan.  What a good choice that was as it had not one, not two, but three travel sections.  I can't wait to see what their Sunday paper holds.

Barb and Leah, should I bring this article home for you?
Not only was its news well written, but it contained this 48 page part of puzzles.  Bob is so thankful, not because he does puzzles, but because it will keep me busy and quiet for days.
We attended a Rotary meeting in Columbia Falls as noon and had supper at a burger place there in the evening.

It's an interesting place.  All the workers are fairly young people and our server had a badge that said, "ask me about Uganda."  We did.  The restaurant is connected to a mission group called Potter's Field which sends young people out to various countries to feed and to work with impoverished children.  The restaurant runs video of the work they do. The young people who go to the countries can work at the restaurant to earn money for their next mission trip.  Our young server was such a good ambassador for the program.

Another interesting thing about the mission work is that Potter's Field does not ignore poverty in the USA.  Although they send workers to places like Uganda, Cambodia, and Guatemala, they also have workers at Browning, Montana which isn't too far from here.  It's an impoverished Indian Reserve.
Just like every year, we are here to see Bigfork's four productions  Last night's was The Drowsy Chaperone.  We've seen it performed a couple of times before and I've never been impressed.  This time I was totally impressed.  It was closing night and the cast gave it their all.

Before the show I always browse my favorite Bigfork gift shop.  Wouldn't two of these kingly birds look great in our house?
Do you have your nose ready?  The Bigfork Theater gardens are still a riot of blooms and the roses, in particular, smell heavenly.
