When I Ride…

Kayaking the Whitefish River

The start of the excursion

A calm, slow-moving river, the Whitefish River is an excellent place to have a relaxing kayak trip.

Hello Ladies

Thinking these ducks were female Mallards, I looked more closely and after research think they might be American Black Duck females. If you know for sure, would you let me know?

Changing colors on the riverbank

The Aspen Trees and Huckleberry bushes are changing in the mountains but the reds and golds are everywhere along the river bank as well.

Windmill Folk Art

This windmill folk art caught my eye as did the barn below.

The perfect set up

With a horse barn on the bottom and a studio apartment up top, what more could you want?

I read this great story about loving Montana. Enjoy…

A man decided to write a book about famous churches around the world. So he bought a plane ticket and took a trip to Orlando, thinking that he would start by working his way across the USA from South to North.

On his first day he was inside a church taking photographs when he noticed a golden telephone mounted on the wall with a sign that read “$10,000 per call”. The man, being intrigued, asked a priest who was strolling by what the telephone was used for. The priest replied that it was a direct line to heaven and that for $10,000 you could talk to God.

The man thanked the priest and went along his way.

Next stop was in Atlanta . There, at a very large cathedral, he saw the same golden telephone with the same sign under it. He wondered if this was the same kind of telephone he saw in Orlando and he asked a nearby nun what its purpose was. She told him that it was a direct line to heaven and that for $10,000 he could talk to God. ” O.K., thank you,” sa id the man.

He then traveled to Indianapolis , Washington DC , Philadelphia , Boston ,and New York . In every church he saw the same golden telephone with the same “$10,000 per call” sign under it. The man, upon leaving New York decided to travel out west to see if western states had the same phone.

He arrived in Montana , and again, in the first church he entered, there was the same golden telephone, but this time the sign under it read “40 cents per call.” The man was surprised so he asked the priest about the sign. “Father, I’ve traveled all over America and I’ve seen this same golden telephone in many churches. I’m told that it is a direct line to Heaven, but in the east and south the price was $10,000 per call. Why is it so cheap here?

The priest smiled and answered, “You’re in Montana now, son,… it’s a local call”.
