    Dad looks great!! Looks to be healthy and happy there too!

    Bi the way Sis, have ya ever been tested for Lyme? I would

    suppose the Big Sky County with it's wild life etc. would be

    a great place for those 'Lil buggers. I know for me, the

    Sierra was.


    P.S. My Great Aunt by marriage spent her early Childhood
    in Butte. And I lived in Butte Co. Cal for a number of
    years. It all seems like "fate" doesn't it?[This Message was Edited on 02/22/2008]

    His roomate is my English Teacher from Highschool,,,,Mr Swanberg,,,who is mildly senile,,,and dad is Completely with it so the conversations they have are Amazing to say the least!,,,,,,,,,,,,

    Dad is the social bug of the Nursing home! And he also plays the Harmonicia (By Ear) so yeah it's a hay-day!

    Mrdad===No i haven't been tested for lyme but it probably wouldn't be a bad idea!,,,i remember having tics around as a kid,,,,,,,

    So your Aunt lived in Butte hey! That's a wild town! lots of Irish immagrents there from the old Mining days!,,,,They have This big open pit there now and you can take tours etc,,,,

    But let me tell ya St Patty's day in Butte is celebrated on a huge scale,,,,Montana is a great place to live if you don't mind the winters!,,,,,,,,,,,Sis,

    I've been to Jackson Hole and Yellowstone but didn't have
    the time to venture further North to Baniff etc. I still
    plan to make that trip some day! Don't think I'll be climb-
    ing Moran in the Tetons again however. Too old for that!

    I see they want to take the Grey Wolf off the "Endangered
    Species" list. Rancher's are pushing for it. Hey, so we
    loose a few sheep and Basques once in awhile! There's always
    more where they came from! Ya know what I'm sayin?

    Do look into the Lyme, especially through the Igenex Lab!
    I suspected it for years and finally went and had it done
    on my own time and $$$. Now at least I have some definition
    and possibility of SOME improvement in my health! LOVE the

    To bad he is a little bit far from TX. One of my singing groups go around to Nursing Homes and assisted living places and perform.

    Hey, he could play his harmonica with us. I am sure he would love it but alas MT is to far away from TX. Yes, he does look like he is having a great time. Glad he likes it there.

    Hugs and blessings,
