Steady truckin'. Just returned from Vancouver, BC, this morning. 'Twas nice to breathe fresh northwest air for an hour. Upon return, Montana roads were icy and travel was slow.

Happy night-before-Halloween! I'm about to watch a scary movie with my sweetie.

Snow is blowin' and the stove is glowin'. For my Christmas truck-driving bonus, Boss Goodall gave me a load of coal today. He picked it up yesterday in Wyoming. It's hard to imagine a better present than high-grade anthracite coal this time of year.

Neighbors Barb and Ed Danks have given Hana and me much of the harvest from their big garden. They've also loaned us their food dryer. We've been dehydrating apples, tomatoes, zucchini, peppers, and beets.

Dad and I are building a west-facing, 9'x25' rock patio on the west side of the house. I hope the ground doesn't freeze solid before we finish.

There is a wee mouse in the house of late. Resident canine, Gilda, is consumed with catching it. She is a good dog.
