As everyone knows I went to my daughters(Heathermt75)in Montana on my vacation.I had a great time while there.I really wanted to stay forever,but all had to end .The weather is much cooler than in Texas. We went camping to West Yellowstone,Montana.It was so cold at night this Texan almost froze to death.I had my sweats on and a jacket it was 36 degrees one morning.Almost as cold the other mornings.
I saw my first IMax theather.We saw Yellowstone and then Bears .Loved ever minute of it.I have some pictures to show everyone.
This was Heather and I playing around at the first place we camped at on our way.Notice the sun rays in the picture.
Heather caught me reading at the camp picnic table.
I really loved the river behind me.It had lots of rafters riding the rapids just past us.
Heather enjoyed it here too.
So did Trey a little to much :)
Oops boy was that rock slippery Papa .
We went on to West Yellowstone the next day and went fishing in Madison Lake
This is Richie and I fishing off the bank.
Trey had his own little Superman Rod and Reel.
Trey found his own little wadeing hole.He enjoyed this little spot so much.
Will do more later.

Fire Ants on plants

This started out to be a great day. When I got to work The yard Maint.man was redoing all out flower beds with Cigar Plants or Fire Cracker plants. I wasn't sure which as my plants like them are red and yellow tipped flowers and these are all red.Lots of Monkey Grass being dug up and tossed out.Well,being who I am and loving almost all plants for sure free ones .I ask if I could have them .He said yes he would bring them to the Guard Shack.He left them outside in the shade.One of our drivers came in and I got him to help me get them to the car when I took my right hand off the box it was covered in fire ants .It didn't take but seconds to get that box out of my car .I have app.30 bites on my hand and other bites on my feet and legs and left hand.My hand is really swollen bad .My joints are hurting .I gave all my free plants to Evelyn a friend at work .She has a pickup truck and a friend of hers loaded it in the back.I hope everyone on Stew doesn't have fire ants . I know those from Texas do.They are so very painful and have you covered in a split second.We loose baby calves and all kinds of animals to them.
I finally got home to my Benadryl and Alcohol and a pain pill .I am now feeling drowsey .
I sure hated to give my box of plants to someone else
I have one plant of Monkey Grass .Evelyn said she would share when she got the ants off and they started growing .I sure hope she remembers.
