From the Homestead Cabin Log
Friday July 11 through Sunday July 13, 1996 Homestead
Gary and I left the condo about 8:15. Picked up L. and drove to the rest stop in
Deep Creek Canyon. So far so good. On to Montana City and here. Quite a few ahead
of us at the homestead and more kept coming all day - and some at night.
It was so good to see everyone but we sure missed Charlie S - he just didn't feel
good enough to come. So many little kids - from 6 mos. to 8 yrs - and only 2 teenagers.
Missed Don & Terry Petersen. They were on a cruise to Europe.
Everything so green and lush. The hill wasn't good for sliding. The syringas were
in full bloom, and the strawberries were ripe. A couple of little showers in the
nights so we had a bonfire, and played charades.
L. did fine - had only one mild attack. Everyone so willing to look after L. & me.
We couldn't help with the work, but I did take a boiled raisin cake, chokecherry
syrup, maple syrup, doz. eggs, cherries etc. It was a wonderful reunion.
We came home with Bill and Jamie. Got here about 8:00. Very tired. We visited the
Great Falls (Ryan Dam) What a sight! Came home by Ft. Benton, Geraldine, Dentom.
