Our Montana weather has been so unpredictable. Rain yesterday, in the night and again today. In fact, we just had pencil eraser-sized hail and thunder. Temperature right now is 48 F and guess, what? The Trout is out trying to drive out of this weather pattern and find a place to fish.
I told him, stop at the Sweet Palace on your way home, because I might need some chocolate. Have not had any chocolates in about a month now, and the cabin fever is getting to me. (smile)
Over a month ago, the Trout was playing catch football with our 8 year-old grandson when he got his left ring finger jammed. It hurt and he has complained some. He got himself a splint and ice pack, but on occasion it still hurt a lot. So this morning, he went in the ER and had x-rays. Seems he tore the tendon crossing the knuckle and when that ripped, it took out a small chunk of bone. So, therefore the pain. He is now in a different splint for a month. Hope this works. At least it is his left hand and he can still toss the trout flies as he back swings his fly rod.
They are starting to know us at this ER. It was just about a year ago when I went in with a broken ankle after slipping off an icy step here at the cabin on August 20.
Those $40 converter boxes that were being handed out to change TV's to digital broadcasting....well, they don't work here. With an antennae here at the cabin, we were able to get NBC and CBS which was great, because all we really are interested in is the news. Well, now we get nothing. A lot of people who live "out" a ways are having this trouble. Nobody thought about that, did they? The strange thing is, no one knows who to call to fix this. Certainly Dish network people do not want to get involved and there is no cable out here. Strange, very strange.
