Talking Dog for Sale.

A guy is driving around the back woods of Montana and he sees a sign in front of a broken down shanty-style house: “Talking Dog For Sale”
He rings the bell and the owner appears and tells him the dog is in the backyard.

The guy goes into the backyard and sees a nice looking Labrador retriever sitting there.
‘You talk?’ he asks.
‘Yep,’ the Lab replies.
After the guy recovers from the shock of hearing a dog talk, he says ‘So, what’s your story?’
The Lab looks up and says, ‘Well, I discovered that I could talk when I was pretty young. I wanted to help the government, so I told the CIA.
In no time at all they had me jetting from country to country, sitting in rooms with spies and world leaders, because no one figured a dog would be eavesdropping.’
‘I was one of their most valuable spies for eight years running. But the jetting around really tired me out, and I knew I wasn’t getting any younger so I decided to settle down. I signed up for a job at the airport to do some undercover security, wandering near suspicious characters and listening in. I uncovered some incredible dealings and was awarded a batch of medals. I got married, had a mess of puppies, and now I’m just retired.’

The guy is amazed. He goes back in and asks the owner what he wants for the dog.

‘Ten dollars,’ the guy says.

‘Ten dollars? This dog is amazing! Why on earth are you selling him so cheap?’

‘Because he’s a bullshitter. He’s never been out of the yard!’

They’re Coming!

This astounding image, captured above the Crazy Mountains of Montana on New Year’s Day, looks like the first sign of an alien invasion.

In fact, it is a lenticular cloud, which often forms in a UFO-like saucer shape, triggering reports of extraterrestrial sightings.

Lenticular clouds (referring to their lens shape) are formed when moisture droplets are pushed up a steep slope, condensing into cloud on their way and warming up to return to water vapor as they move down the other side. These clouds hover high in the air, usually over the Andes, Himalayas or the Rockies.

Bright colours are sometimes seen along the edge of lenticular clouds, which are said to be the single biggest explanation for UFO sightings across the world.

Montana Playground: Not for Sissies

A family that lives on the outskirts of  Missoula , Montana decided to build a sturdy, colorful playground for their 3- and 4-year-old sons.

They lined the bottom with smooth-stone gravel all around to avoid knee scrapes and other injuries.


They finished building it one Friday evening and were very pleased with the end product.


The following morning, the mom was about to wake the boys up and have them go out to play in their new play center.    Continue reading

More Adventures in the Pacific Northwest

 
Montana Beauty

Hello friends! I just returned from a trip to Great Falls, Montana via Colville to see my dad and take care of some family business.  Missed ya’ all here and wanted to share some pics from the great state of Montana! 

Windy hair!
 
 
Missouri River 
 We stopped before Helena so dad could take this photo of me with the beautiful mountains in the background.   It’s very windy in Montana, hence my “Donald Trump” sideswept hair!  In Great Falls, the weather was beautiful, sunny and 72, yet the winds were around 35 miles per hour! The next picture is a view of the Missouri River from my hotel room.  It is the longest  river on the continent at over 2,341 miles and the second largest tributary of the Mississippi by discharge, after the Ohio River.
 
Lewis and Clark Statue

 

 

F-106 Delta Dart
 Close to our hotel in Great Falls was this beautiful statue of Lewis and Clark.  I can only imagine the beauty they saw in this wonderful state as they made their way to the Pacific Coast. We then went to the visitor section of the Montana Air National Guard and on display they had an F-106 interceptor aircraft  and a F-86 Sabre (not pictured). Very cool to see these machines up close!
 

Does this look familiar?

After our trip to Great Falls, we made it back to Colville to do what we do in Colville, target practice! We had about an hour of sunshine and went out in the “front yard” of my dad’s property to get in some practice.  You know I loved it!

Montana is a beautiful state!  The weather was nice, the people were very friendly and I can’t wait to go back! If you ever get the chance, I would highly recommend visiting this beautiful state. Enjoy the pics!

Firebomb Thrown at Elderly Pro-Lifer

The Left are such nice people!

Did you know that a proponent of choice abortion infanticide threw a homemade firebomb at an elderly woman who was participating in a pro-life prayer vigil at an abortion mill in Montana?

No? Gosh, I wonder why!

If a pro-lifer were to throw a Molotov cocktail at an abortion clinic, we wouldn’t hear or see the end of it in the MSM.

The homemade molotov cocktail

Firebomb Thrown at Elderly Woman at Pro-Life Prayer Event

By Steven Ertelt – LifeNews.com – March 18, 2011

A homemade incendiary device was thrown at one of the participants of the 40 Days for Life pro-life prayer vigil at an abortion business in Kalispell, Montana on Thursday night.

The woman walked on the public sidewalk near the abortion business when an unidentified person threw the device — akin to a “Molotov cocktail” — in her direction. The woman did not see either the firebomb nor the assailant it exploded on the sidewalk behind her, making a loud popping noise like a big firecracker as it burst into flame. Fortunately, the woman was not hurt in the incident.

After she regained her composure, the victim called Karen Trierweiler, coordinator of the 40 Days prayer vigils in Kalispell at the All Family Health Care abortion center, over to her.

After a lengthy delay, a Kalispell police officer arrived. However, according to officials with the Thomas More Society, a pro-life legal group that is helping the participants, instead of inspecting the bomb debris or calling evidence technicians to the scene, the officer remarked that police could never get prints or other evidence from the bomb’s remains and said he would call the city’s garbage service to dispose of all the debris.

The officer then said that the 40 Days prayer vigil participants should expect this kind of reaction if they’re protesting at the abortion business. Questioning Officer Hoover’s assessment of the attack, Trierweiler called the Kalispell desk sergeant to complain, where she was unable to get further assistance.

Tom Brejcha, president and chief counsel of the Thomas More Society says his group has filed a formal complaint with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Field Office in Helena, Montana. The organization is for an immediate, intensive investigation of what it calls a “vicious” attack.

“We are appalled by this terrible act of violence, while we’re immensely grateful that God’s grace spared this valiant pro-lifer any serious injury,” he told LifeNews.com this afternoon. “But the reaction of Kalispell police officers after Ms. Trierweiler called them to the scene was equally appalling, indeed outrageous.”

“We intend to file disciplinary complaints against both the officer who came to the crime scene and the desk sergeant whose tepid, indifferent, and grossly unprofessional response to this blatant act of domestic terrorism shows them both unfit to wear a police uniform and at best deserving of severe disciplinary action. We expect much better from the FBI and we will pursue the matter to the very highest levels of the U.S. Department of Justice if this case is not investigated promptly and vigorously and — once the assailant is identified and apprehended — prosecuted to the hilt,” he continued.

Trierweiler also reported that an eyewitness has stepped forward, who was not part of the 40 Days campaign but was a passerby and who the incident occur and may be able to help the FBI track down the bomb thrower and bring him to justice.

And God Created Montana

God was missing for six days. Eventually, Michael, the archangel, found him, resting on the seventh day.

He inquired, “Where have you been?”

God smiled deeply and proudly pointed downwards through the clouds, “Look,

Michael. Look what I’ve made.”

Archangel Michael looked puzzled, and said, “What is it?”

“It’s a planet,” replied God, and I’ve put life on it. I’m going to call it Earth and it’s going to be a place to test Balance.”

“Balance?” inquired Michael, “I’m still confused.”

God explained, pointing to different parts of Earth. “For example, northern Europe will be a place of great opportunity and wealth, while southern Europe is going to be poor. Over here I’ve placed a continent of white people, and over there is a continent of black people. Balance in all things.”

God continued pointing to different countries. “This one will be extremely hot, while this one will be very cold and covered in ice.”

The Archangel, impressed by God’s work, then pointed to a land area and said, “What’s that one?”

“That’s Montana, the most glorious place on earth. There are beautiful mountains, rivers and streams, lakes, forests, hills, and plains. The people from Montana are going to be handsome, modest, intelligent, and humorous, and they are going to travel the world. They will be extremely sociable, hardworking, high achieving, carriers of peace, and producers of good things.”

Michael gasped in wonder and admiration, but then asked, “But what about balance, God? You said there would be balance.”

God smiled, “I will create Washington, D.C. Wait till you see the idiots I put there.

Neil Cavuto Epically Dismantles Democrat on Fox

Montana Governor Brian Schweitzer picked the wrong day to try talking points on Neil Cavuto’s show.

While discussing the union protests in Wisconsin and Ohio, Schweitzer took it upon himself to reveal just how utterly disconnected politicians have become from the private sector. When Neil nailed his hide to the wall, he backtracked like crazy.

Below is a partial transcript of the segment with commentary (emphasis mine, click on photo for video link):

CAVUTO: What do you make, Governor, of a lot of your Republican counterparts, many of whom just got elected and just got sworn in and are leading this budget cutting charge across the country?

SCHWEITZER: I think it’s great to cut budgets. I’ve cut everything you could possibly cut in Montana, I’ve cut. And that’s why we have money in the bank. But I guess my concern is, if you consider a governor a CEO, like a CEO of a corporation, and we are. We have between 10,000 and 500,000 people working for us depending on what state we’re in. Can you imagine a new CEO at IBM or General Electric or Boeing, a few days after they’ve been selected as the CEO, announcing to the world that all of the people that work here are overpaid and underworked, and we’re going to decrease their salary and decrease their benefits. What would be the morale?

CAVUTO: Yeah I can, actually, many of them have done just that. They’ve cut pay, they cut positions, a lot of them do just that.

You’ll never guess what happens next…

SCHWEITZER: You do that, I’ve done that. But what you do is, you say look, we’re in this together. In order for us to be successful globally, we’re all going to have to do this together. But you don’t point fingers at your workers and say listen, you’re not doing your job. Well yeah they are doing their job.

CAVUTO: You can say you have too many workers, right? You can say you have a lot of overpaid workers.

SCHWEITZER: Absolutely.

Watching the whole video is worth it to hear just how clueless this guy really is. I almost choked on my drink when I watched this happen live.

Memo to Democrats: when looking to pull the wool over Cavuto’s eyes, send someone a little bit smarter than Brian Schweitzer.

A Supercell Thunderstorm Cloud Over Montana
Credit & Copyright: Sean R. Heavey

Explanation: Is that a spaceship or a cloud? Although it may seem like an alien mothership, it’s actually a impressive thunderstorm cloud called a supercell. Such colossal storm systems center on mesocyclones — rotating updrafts that can span several kilometers and deliver torrential rain and high winds including tornadoes. Jagged sculptured clouds adorn the supercell’s edge, while wind swept dust and rain dominate the center. A tree waits patiently in the foreground. The above supercell cloud was photographed in July west of Glasgow, Montana, USA, caused minor damage, and lasted several hours before moving on.
