Thursday July 8, 1982 Homestead
Beautiful day - a little shower on the way over near Townsend. Left home at 9:30 lunch at
our usual spot in Deep Creek Canyon - arrived at homestead at 2:30. Road up from Mark's
in pretty good shape. Every thing green & lush. D. & Chas. got here about noon (from
Peg's in Helena). Got settled in, made supper, played pinochle. D & I walked up on the
"flat" - enjoyed the peace and quiet at last. Tinker, Vaughn & a friend out and mowed the
grass around the house. JoAnn drove in about 10:00. We bedded down in the outer bedroom.
Friday July 9
Another nice day. We women worked all morning cleaning the place up. (I chose to do the
outhouse & "woodwork" in the kitchen.) Just at supper time Cecil and his two grandkids & a
friend (nice girl) drove in. Shortly after, Lee, C., Brian, Roy Costh & Al came. Next came
Dana N. & Pat, G. & girls about 11:00.
Saturday July 10
Seems like all we did all day was fix food, eat & wash dishes. Got quite hot in afternoon.
D. Jo & I walked to gate & up flat. I climbed the cliff. Peg, Penny & kids out in afternoon.
Don & Terri Petersen & Jennifer came also. Then the Smith's, Daneil.
Sunday July 11
More people drifted in - Karen & Kevin, Andy P. & Carla S. from Missoula. Lee & I made
sourdough pancakes for the whole crowd, I made hashed browns & Hank fried bacon and sausages.
Karen, Dorrie, Carole, Pat, & I hiked down to Prim's fence. My leg almost didn't get me
back. Lee, Terri & Brian & Roy drove into Helena to see & hear Lee on his taped tv program
re civil aeronautics problems. After our 3 o'clock dinner people began leaving. We rode
home with Lee, Carole, Al, Tammy & Shanda in the motor home & Brian & Roy drove the car.
Got home about 9:00.
