Pink Pony- This is one of the few places where people sometimes lie about their age to make themselves older. The other place was in a bar when I was 18.

Country Woman, I hope your knee feels better. Don't give up on riding. How about driving--horse and buggy?

Great to see you, Montana!
I recently had the opportunity to take a transfer/promotion to Helena.
The decision was difficult.

I mean, I love here....my Dakota Badlands are part of who I am.
Yet though I have never been to Helena, photos of the area are just beautiful, and it was a move I was considering strongly.

I have turned down offers for other areas east of me in the past few years, as my heart leans more to the rugged west.

My youngest will be a senior in high school next year, which made my decision to turn down the Helena offer. I would like my son to be able to finish high school here.

Yet....Helena was incredibly tempting....

I visited Helena once. It was beautiful. I would love to live in Montana or Wyoming in the summertime. I am not sure that I could deal with the winters. I am too old to shovel snow.

Lewis and Clark came through here too. . I often ride my horses at Fort Lincoln.
I still have a nagging feeling that I should have taken the job in Helena though.
But....I am Mom first.
