The State of MyMT – April 2016

The State of MyMT – April 2016

I missed my April 1 date of re-evaluating MyMT.  I've been swamped buried.  So, here we go a few days late. In January 2016, I wrote, "The Year Anew - MyMT in 2016" and announced that I would be re-evaluating the continuation of MyMT in April 2016.  The article is a great summary of what »

Reminding Me of Go-Go Boots!

Reminding Me of Go-Go Boots!

When I was young and would get new shoes or new clothes, I would set them out where I could see them as soon as I woke up in the morning!  Did anyone ever do this?  The very first thing I ever bought with my babysitting money was Go-Go boots at Leeds.  I still remember »

Thankless on Thanksgiving

Thankless on Thanksgiving

One Thanksgiving, I had offered to work four hours to cover the holiday.  Employee status, this company.  I got up at 4:00 a.m. to work three hours.  Then it was time to bake.  I made my family-favorite apple pie, and my regular ole Libby's rendition of the pumpkin kind.  I showered up and headed north »
