6:09 am - Monday - October 2nd - 32º F, humidity 89%, wind 5 mph out of the north by northwest.....cloudy......low chance of rain (less than 20%)....forecast high for Gardiner, MT today is 40º and 39º F in Mammoth Hot Springs, WY.....WOW, where did that come from?   Woke up to the news that some lunatic male opened fire from a room in a high rise hotel in Las Vegas last evening on a crowd watching a Country Music concert.......50+ killed, and over 200 hundred wounded....makes me glad I spend most of my time in rural America.  My heart goes out to those families who needlessly lost loved ones, and to those who were wounded, or trampled in the madness that ensued.  A good friend, and her daughter managed to escape, but suffered injuries when they fell and were trampled.....fortunately no serious injuries for them......just scrapes and bruises.

What a ride this summer has been!  Friendships continue to deepen as the season winds down.  It's time for another round of 'until next times' replete with long hugs and promises to remain in touch, and to somehow reconnect in the future. These are not hollow promises.....they are heart felt, and I know we will see each other again......

Last 'usie' with Dodge & Christina at the Mammoth Hot Springs General Store.....left to right: Moi, Christina, TLE and Dodge (Kristen)

.......if it is possible, and it certainly is, Sunday seemed to be the slowest day, I believe, at the General Store since we arrived.....painfully slow.  I'm almost positive the clock was running backwards at times.  There was about an hour of pretty steady activity, but that was pretty much it.  One of our fellow employees injured her back slipping and falling on a patch of ice in the employee parking lot on her way into work.  She attempted to man her post as a cashier, but by noon she was sent home in pain.  As a result I was asked to move my cash drawer over to the retail desk for the rest of the afternoon where I once again got to work alongside TLE.  I've enjoyed the change of pace the past two days as it is a little bit busier at the retail desk than at the 'Fountain'.

We closed the store at 6 pm, and were on our way down the Gardiner River Gorge once again......this time headed for the Rusty Rail to have a few drinks with Dodge (floor supervisor) and Christina (stocker)........we laughed and did some crying....this will be our last time at the Rusty Rail this summer, and we will miss these folks terribly......

Last 'usie' with our good buddy Dodge (Kristen) at the Rusty Rail....."Love you, mean it!"

.......by 8:30 we hugged some more, then slobbered a little more, then went home.......just two more times up and down the Gardiner River Gorge before we roll our wheels!

Thanks for stopping by!
