Billings MT on the Weekend before Thanksgiving


Outside it was very cold, down near zero Fahrenheit, and a lot of snow fell too. This is what my outdoor table with warmed bird-bath looked like.


Inside it was more pleasant, about 69 deg Fahrenheit and very little snow, usually quickly melting after you stamped it off your shoes. This Christmas cactus is just starting to bloom in our sun room.


And at the Expo Center there was a lot of vendors trying to sell us stuff. A lot of useful and nice stuff and some good food too. This was a drooling bear who was collecting the drool from his mug to his other mug.

Hey - that looks like my back yard. This global warming stuff is a pain!

My cactus has been blooming for a few weeks and it looks like another crop of flowers is coming.

Hope you Thanksgiving was wonderful...

I like your comments Adrienne. It sounds like the whole Northwest was blanketed. It's up to the 30s today (Friday) here in Billings.

“In beholding old stones we may feel our anxieties about our achievements–and lack of them–slacken . . . Vast landscapes [and seascapes] can have an anxiety–reducing effect similar to ruins, for they are the representatives of infinite space, as ruins are the representatives of infinite time, against which our weak, short-lived bodies seem no less inconsequential than those of moths or spiders.”—Alain de Botton in Status Anxiety
