This is a First

I'm posting this using the new 4G mobile thing a ma jig. So while Pam shops, I shop online in the parking lot. Technology, got to love it. Pretty nice here today. About 54 and mid 20's at night. Dude is having fun playing with the grand daughters. Oh, I'm on Facebook. Figured I give it a try. Most of what's happening will be on this Blog however.

   Update on buying a 3G for computer. I stayed up till 2AM and couldn't get it to work. Very frustrating. Took it back to Verizon and they tried installing it. One of the salespeople there said to just read the directions. Hmmmmmm. They tried installing the software and tried to get it to work. It didn't. They then got online with their computer and found out that 7 out of 10 wireless devices didn't work. Now why would Verizon even sell such a device knowing that 70% are defective.
   OK, now long story short. We walked out with 4G wireless device and had it installed there to make sure it worked.
   Hopefully we'll be able to keep up with the blog more often and email people.
  Cool here 27* F.

Sweating My A$$ Off In Denver

   Finally made it to Parker, Colorado the other day. We stayed just ahead of the snowstorm that hit Montana the morning after we left. A snow storm was suppose to hit here, but nothing yet. Yesterday the temp was 70.....that was nice.
   I tried uploading a photo, but looks like something in the format here has changed. I'll try later.
   Went and got a 3G for computer today. Suppose to allow us on Internet where there's cell phone coverage. The girl at the Verizon said it was REAL simple. Hmmmmm. I'm taking it back tomorrow to have them install it.
   I signed up on Facebook since Mike and Connie Farley emailed and wanted me to sign up. Still trying to figure it out.
   Well, not much else is happening. I'll upload photos when I get the new format figured out.
   Also the movies weren't taken by me. Don't forget the youtube videos

Short videos of the vacation

Catch Up

The short video above is a a view of traveling through Idaho. We made it to Anaconda, Montana with no problems. And had dinner with Ron and Stormy that evening. We then went to their cabin where we spent a very enjoyable few days with them. Visited an old prison and looked at a car mu seam. Both were great. Also woke up to a herd of elk beside their house. They had bedded down about 100 feet from the house. Of course I couldn't get to my camera in time to film them before they took off. Dude had a good time there. Relaxing on the steps as she did at Pat and Laura's house.

We left this morning headed for Tana's. We're in Sheridan , Wyoming. I finally figured out that the lower the price of the room, the closer to the railroad tracks. Later I'll open the rear window and high five the engineer as they go by. Good roads so far and temp was 54.

Should be at Tana's Tuesday afternoon. looking forward to seeing the granddaughters.

Well, Dude is bedding down for the evening so goodnight to all.
