The Latest Happenings

So it has been a little while since I put a little blog update up--so I figured I better inform y'all of the latest in this wonderful summer we call Great Falls Livin'

What better way to do it than put together a poem of sorts that describes the last few weeks.  Please, do enjoy.

First there was the Lake for a few days,
Which ended with me being a bit dazed

The lake was cold,
Or so I was told,
While I always look bold

The fairways were green,
And the morning hot tub was filled with steam

I ran into some friends,
That went with the trend,
And did I mention golf was exceptional at Eagle Bend?

The boats were fast,
Never looking into the past

The raft up included 17 boats,
Everyone brought their totes,
But there was no need for coats

A long night was spent driving to the Falls,
Where upon arriving I was soon to study options and calls

The week was spent reading the books,
Getting strange looks,
And accusing the IRS of being crooks

At the end of the week,
I was headed to North Dakota to begin a long streak

The highline was long,
I filled Andrew a Kong,
And soon we would sing a wedding song

The oil of Williston was crude,
However the people were really not that rude (some exceptions)

The Airport International Inn was filled to the max,
I did not appreciate the sales tax,
And Andrew would soon try and find a fax

The wedding was hot,
And I did not take a trot

Being the best man was a big job,
However I did not look like a slob,
And the reception would soon be a mob

The drive back to MT was quick,
Mainly to get out of the oil slick

The time in ND was filled with remembering old times,
Spending a few dimes,
And looking for that lost Carona lime

Great Falls has been very warm,
Along with evening thunder storms

The Staybridge Suites will never get old,
Or so I am told,
However it is unlike the Airport International Inn which was filled with mold

This one goes out to another weekend at the Lake,
Where I am sure I will eat at least one steak

More interesting times are soon to be had in the Great,
It does seem to be a trait,
Along with my ever-so-classy intern-mates

My best to you as we enter the 3rd weekend of July!

Welcome Home (I have two homes...)

Notice the title here: Welcome Home.  Here is the thing, this summer I have two homes.  Not to be confused with the home I have in the fall and spring months when I reside with Andrew Benjamin Ross Helder and Seth Austin Grossman; but I have a new home this summer: Room 327 at the StayBridge Suites in Great Falls.  Now many have you have seen my posts on Facebook and previous blogs that regard the "Bridge" and some of the problems I have had here.  I will not continue to rant about these problems (although they have yet to stop--although the flood did stop in my room) so I will move on.  But again, Welcome Home--back to the Lake, or back to the Bridge?

I did spend some time back at the Lake this past Independence Day weekend, where I was surrounded by many family and friends.  To name a few:

-Uncle P
-Mrs. Patyk
-Robert A.
-Ms. Swings
-My dear Uncle Earl
-Loud Mouth Mike
-Dog Balls
-Midnight Dame Hannah (Points for anyone who can name this one...)
-Heavy D (although lack there of now...)
-Ms. Annie ~ future homecoming queen of MSU (first time meeting there)
and lots of other people, I have missed some

But welcome home.  That was a very nice welcoming home to the Lake for the weekend, along with the great times that were to follow.  I will say, there were some very good times that were had, along with maybe a few souls broken (i.e. Grossman).  Upon returning to Great Falls after departing Lakeside at 4:15 am July the 5th (long day) I was welcomed home by our class Asian (D-Kwan) and the rest of the rowdy crew. 

Plans for the rest of the week:

--Test Searles on his ability to see through my sweet-talking (he will...)
--Attend a Great Falls Voyager's game and participate in the $25 ticket section...
--See what the deal is with Ulm and the concept of fishtailing...(Stacey, you come in here...)
--Swim the Missouri River?
--Post up at the Country Club for a few hours and see what that brings...you know what I'm talking about D-Kwan and Lance Armstrong...
--Uncover the mystery of the occupation of the Bridge guest who "everyone seems to love, minus the interns of DA"...this really is bothering me.

Until then, ya'll have a good week and weekend.  I'll keep posting up here at the Bridge and the Falls of Great.  Don't you worry, I'll be just fine.
