I am sitting here watching the rain come down and am so thankful for the moisture. It has been so dry here in Cut Bank and this wonderful rain is so welcome. In the last two days we have received approximately 2 inches of moisture. This may not sound like much, but until this rain we have only had about a quarter of an inch of moisture since Jan. 1st. So as you can imagine, the farmers in the area are grinning from ear to ear.

I know my youngest daughter, Rose, is loving this weather. She loved the rain when we were in Seattle. She would go for walks in the rain and just be soaking wet when she got back, but enjoyed every minute of her walk. Most people would complain about the weather, but Rose thought it was great. I think she is going to be a Seattle girl when she gets older.

School is winding down here and the girls can't wait for summer vacation. They are really excited about going out to Seattle in June to see Marcy, Travis, and the boys. We love Montana, but it is too far away from Marcy's crew. I would love to be able to run over to the house and pick up Gavin and go for an outing for just the two of us.

Also, I might add that the moisture also makes me happy as a car salesman. When the farmers are happy and the crops are growing, they are more willing to buy that new vehicle. With the ever increasing fuel prices it makes it harder and harder to get people interested in new vehicles, especially the diesel trucks. We do have those that are looking to get out of their gas hog and into something that gets better fuel economy. I guess I need to be patient, and the Lord will take care of everything.

God Bless,

Once again, I really don't have much to say. I have been reading everyone's blogs, and realized I haven't written for a long time. So, I'll just jot down a few lines.

Not much going on right now. I have started golf league, but the first night I almost froze. Our second night is this week, but I'm taking the night off to celebrate my wife's birthday. I sure hope she has a good birthday.

The girls are waiting for school to end. I don't know what they have planned for the summer, but I know they enjoy their time off. Hopefully we can get some camping in and we get to see Marcy, Travis, Gavin, and Nate. Patty and the girls will go to Seattle for a week the first part of June, but I have to stay home and work.

Life with Kelly goes on, but I still have a hard time when I see her picture and that great smile. Oh how I wish she was still here with us. I know she is pain free and living with the Lord, but I still miss her.

Work is going okay. Truck sales have slowed down with the price of fuel, but we are getting more inquiries about our cars. Wish we had more to offer in the used department!!

Well, bye for now.
