I Went to Court and Lived to Tell the Tale

I had to go observe court today and lived to tell the tale.  After being told what not to wear, I decided to make up my own "going to court outfit." It was classy with a capital K. Let's just say I was pretty proud of myself. I was thinking I was so clever and giddy, I sent the text below to Torture Queen, aka: TQ this morning before work: Last night I told my Mom what I planned on wearing to work to impress TQ. I don't think she believed me. Keep in mind I get to work at 7 am long before the … [Keep reading...you know you want to!]

Two White Girls With Shovels

It has been a while since I have been on a Rez run with my friend, Sheri. That changed with an unexpected little jaunt to the reservations on Monday.  I just want to warn you that this is not pretty, it has rare moments of black humor and back to sad again.  The whole day we kept talking about what I should put in my blog and how this is going to be in two parts because it was a very long day. This is also a longer than normal post for me. There is a part two and I'll post that another … [Keep reading...you know you want to!]

Times They Are a Changing

The past ten years have been a wild ride and it looks like it isn't over yet. I moved to Montana from Minnesota about ten years ago. I was scared, lonely, and bewildered. Depression had pretty much ruined my life.  Moving to Montana was only to be a temporary thing.  I was going to clear my head and then move back. I didn't quite work out that way. Mr. Bernie and I became a couple. We worked together. We became involved in the community. We got married. We bought a house. We took trips. We … [Keep reading...you know you want to!]

Wordless Wednesday- Protecto Bloomers

I don't know about you, but nothing screams, 'Oh, so fresh", like rubber pants once a month! It's hard to imagine how much ventilation that these actually provided*shudder* The self adjusting really is the selling point for me. I hate pins and such in my rubber pants. It's a darn shame they don't make these anymore. I would so stock up. Did anyone catch that they are reversible?  That must have been handy. Image credit: … [Keep reading...you know you want to!]

I’m Going to Court!

Tuesday Talk On a Monday

I was in my bosses office last week to ask for clarification about some Jury Duty stuff. She gave me some sound advice and then told me that she was going to give a talk to a local Kiwanis group. She then asked, “Hey, Bernie, do you want to go with me and talk about […]
