Remembering Montana’s former Governor Judy Martz
Our only female Governor
Among other things, she had been an Olympic speed skater…
…if she was told she couldn’t do something, she would excel at it
Our son was one of many people paying last respects to her at the Capitol rotunda
He wears a “turtle” pin from her…she believed “If you don’t stick your neck out, nothing will happen.”
RIP Judy Martz
Snow, Snow, Snow :)
Cozy and warm, fireplace glowing
Accomplished a lot all week due to snow forecast
Yesterday was nice…some little darlin’s came for tricks/treats :)
So grateful to be able to spend time with our son…he travels often…
…he is so interesting with years of stories to tell…
…seriously, he should write a book.
Very grateful for Cathy’s successful knee reconstruction ♥
Loving these gorgeous Autumn days of perfect weather ♥
