Day 162

A Father’s Day collection of Dad! Nothing new, but good photos. {!-{> ~Curtis in /\/\onTana…and history! {!-{>

Day 174

Press the triangle to play the sound file. Western Meadowlark. After that, I think he deserves to take a bow! The video (of another refrain)… Day1817404 (It should open in another window.  Also, please note the Sound of Freedom in the background, courtesy of the US Air Force 40th Helicopter Squadron!) ~Curtis in /\/\onTana! {!-{>

Day 175: The Many Faces of ‘Stache, Part 1

‘Stache was over for lunch today and I played him a lot of really good music (boogie-woogie!).  He really enjoyed himself and was dancing to the beat…as much as you can dance strapped in that seat… We listened to quite a selection: Commander Cody and the Lost Planet Airmen. (Beat me Daddy, Eight to the […]

Day 92

I guess the Squirrel that lives in my engine didn’t like my choice of music… (1/80s f/8.0 ISO400 6mm (35mm eq:28mm) -1/3 stop Nikon P7100) (Maybe leaving a CD in the player in the car when not in use for a long time is not a good idea…) ~Curtis in /\/\onTana! {!-{>

Great Cars of Song: Hot Rod Lincoln

My pappy said “Son, you’re gonna drive me to drinkin’ If you don’t stop drivin’ that hot rod Lincoln.” Another great post at Car Lust! With the history, links and video! ~Curtis in /\/\onTana! {!-{>

Day 306 in Missoula!

I was in Missoula for a couple days this week, and I saw this scene from the parking lot of the Riverside Holiday Inn Express.  The streamers of sunlight had started to fade by the time I got the camera out, but it was still a nice scene.  That is the University of Montana across […]

Day 226: End of an Era

East Helena has had a lead smelter for many, many years.  Times and the Market have conspired to close the Smelter, and as part of the environmental clean up (a major project!) they have taken down the three smokestacks that have been the East Helena skyline for much longer than I have been around.  They […]

Something for those you like classical music!

Western Swing on 78 is an ever expanding collection of Western Swing from the 30’s and 40’s, ripped from the latest 78rpm albums!  Lots  of great old classical Cowboy dancin’ music, scratches and all.  Many are recordings of early radio shows.  There are a lot of current western “classics” here, in their original recordings! Enjoy! […]
