Traveling Clothes, Eagles, and One Mean Hawk

Some of you know that I have been searching high and low for my sparkly green show jacket. I had it in Blackfoot but it was no where to be found when I went looking for it for the Missoula shows. Dear Husband had done the laundry so I called him (since he was in Utah last week) to ask if he knew where the missing jacket was -- he had no idea and so I kept searching.

In my search I found many excellent things I had been missing and discovered that the dryer vent had a small leak -- but no jacket. It was very sad and humiliating to have to wear the same suit all three days of the Missoula shows :(

Well, Dear Husband came home this morning with a confession -- and the sparkly green jacket! He had taken it to Utah to be dry cleaned (since we have no dry cleaners in Montana ;) but did not remember doing it when I called him -- sigh... But at least it is back and clean!

And in other missing clothes news, my new Lucky Hanukkah Socks wound up in Colorado!!! That is what happens at shows -- on the last day when everyone is trying to pack/leave things get tossed all over and stuffed in the nearest bag -- it is why I have two combs but am missing my Mars Coat Thingee. Anyway, the socks are on their way back to Montana -- those are some well-traveled socks already!

Dear Husband and I went to lunch and when we came back we were greeted by a most amazing sight -- two bald eagles riding the currents over our house. I grabbed the ever ready camera and took pictures!

And then -- like a stealth bomber -- a hawk came from out of no where and whacked one of the eagles in midair!!! The eagles took the oh-so-subtle hint and flew away -- who knew birds could be just like people?!


  1. Beautiful the way, I Love your place of residency. :D

  2. Told you it was at the drycleaners :)

  3. I think I've run into some Hawk-like people lately myself. :-/ I think I'll take a cue from your gorgeous eagles and split when I can in those circumstances. Thanks for the great pictures!
