Day 132

I tried to make a cheap slide copier out of a PVC pipe. It didn’t work well with my Android phone, but the iPhone has possibilities… ~Curtis in /\/\onTana! {!-{>

Day 131

It was time for Toots’ last concert in 6th Grade…dig that purple clarinet! The whole class for the singing part. This was a rolling panorama on my iPhone 8. Groovin’. ~Curtis in /\/\onTana! {!-{>

Day 76

The snow has been piling up for a few weeks now, but we finally got above freezing for one day at least, and the snow is starting to melt. It was a bit too late for the steam tractor museum East of Great Falls, however. I am not too worried about the Tractors inside…they are […]

Day 242

My friend Jim took my old boss Vance and I out to the Air Museum at Malmstrom AFB, MT.  Here is some of what we saw. The top side of an ICBM reentry guidance module. The bottom side. A launch control console.  This is where the two guys sit underground.  Waiting. An ICBM reentry vehicle […]

Day 238

My friend Jim took my old boss Vance and I out to the Air Museum at Malmstrom AFB, MT.  Here is some of what we saw. This is Jim and Vance.  They are a couple of (nice!) Air Force types.  The painting is of Col. Malmstrom who died on a flight shortly after he arrived […]

Day 219

The Dailylife Great Grandpop turned 93 on the 4th of August (more or less…).  He took a Zipline Ride up at Big Mountain, errr, excuse me, Whitefish Mountain Resort…he said it was fun but he likes skydiving better…less walking uphill! The first three photos are by the Dailylife Canadian Quilter Sister! In training: “Assume the […]
