Why I keep coming back

After seeing Glacier and the Tetons, I still longed for the Badlands, Black Hills, and Yellowstone. The landscape warms me so. The colors, the animals. the atmosphere. I just get happy when I see the edge of the badlands. I had a great trip. Still hate the camping, but the hotels were so seedy, that by the end of the trip, I preferred toughing it out in the tent with the bears and bison. K~

Function over Beauty

So, Rick was on his way out somewhere in the evening. He had been busy outside for a few hours prior. He said to me on his way to the gate, "Hey, do you want to see what I made?" I went out and looked in my garden to find this monstrosity sitting there!!! It is a hand made (as if you can't tell) pool heater. I was rendered speechless and just shook my head. After I rescued my "Kiss me over the garden gate" I just proceeded to take a picture. Why do I even bother!
On the flip side, Bobbi got me these lovely organizing pieces for my Birthday! Thanks Bob! They are so pretty, and will make the ugly mundane paperwork items look so much more beautiful. Guess Rick and Bobbi are not cut from the same cloth. Both items are functional, true, but well they don't seem to look the same. K~
