I have been married for 40 years, to my best friend. We have two beautiful children and two cats, Sam cat who is 18 and Bessie who is 5. Moved to Montana in 1974 from New Jersey and have never looked back. I am newly retired from working at an Alternative High School and I am going to miss the staff and students so much, but I am ready for the next chapter! I use my blog as a secondary journal, to keep a record of the events in my life.
Oooo, what a chair, if I could have one chair, this would be it!

Oh Deer! ~ Mosaic Monday
We had a surprise guest this weekend at our house. Hubby went out to his shop and lo and behold, sleeping behind my garden shed was a cute and very big Mule Deer. He called me to come out and I was so excited, they are usually found in yards in the University area, or up the Rattlesnake or near the river, but never where I live. Mid town. Of course, he wasn't as tickled as me to be greeted and so tried to flee and we let him. He headed North and I was sad. The excitement was over. I had always wanted to find a deer in my yard and now I had and it was done. But not so fast, seems he kinda liked my dead weeds, a couple frozen apples and the confines of my back yard. He returned and spent the night and enjoyed the added pleasure of discovering all my bird feeders, (note to self: pick up more seed!) and even took a nap right next to our backdoor. I had such fun taking pictures and watching his every move. How in the world can they jump so quickly and high without a running start? Anyway, with the evening he has left. And I hope he has returned to the river or Blue Mountain. I will miss him, but with Spring coming my bushes wouldn't have stood a chance!
