Women Mushers Sweep Montana's Race To The Sky.

Jessie Royer of Seeley Lake won the 300-mile Montana Race to the Sky Monday night, building on her legacy as the musher with the most wins in the annual sled dog race.

Royer started her winning career in the Race to the Sky in 1994 at age 17 and continued with wins in 2015, 2016 and 2018. She still holds the record for youngest champion from her 1994 win. Seven of the last eight champions were also women.

Josi Thyr, a 26-year-old musher living in the Seeley Lake area, finished the 100-mile run of the Montana Race to the Sky sled dog race early Sunday, while her friend and mentor Jessie Royer threatened to turn the 300-mile race into a runaway.

❤️ Thank you for the hearts and the attitude adjustment. ❤️

After shoveling snow for an hour this morning. I came inside, opened up my iPad and found the gift of a couple of lovely hearts. Thanks to you kind souls for the reset. Onward through my Monday.

Amazing doggy yoga partner right here...

If this doesn’t take your mind off our national woes...nothing will. ❤️


I went to pick up my kiddo from drivers ed and came home to two lovely hearts. Made my Friday. ❤️

Nancy is comparing the MF to President Obama

up one side and down the other AND dressing him down for his SOTU lie-a-thon. Taking no prisoners. The MF is gonna be MAD.


Anybody notice this week how many folks on MSNBC

Have worn some shade of purple during coverage of the Senate impeachment trial? A LOT of them have worn or are wearing purple. Tonight is no exception. Is this a coincidence? Trivial, I know in terms of the weight of all that’s going on. It’s just something I noticed.

A sight that warmed my heart on this crappy news day...

I was driving to the neighborhood hardware store and I see my kiddo (14years old) flying by traffic on his bike with his fly rod strapped to his back...headed toward the Clark Fork River. I got home and he had done all his chores, recycling, emptied the dishwasher and fed the dogs...AND left me a note telling he he’d “gone fishing”. Love that kid.

National Guard presence in high schools?

I just came home from work yesterday to find a National Guard t-shirt in my son’s laundry basket. I asked him where he got it. He said that reps from the MT National Guard came to the school and worked out with them in PE. They had a tug of war competition, my son’s team won and were given t-shirts for their victory. The t-shirts say “ National Guard” on the front and have a colorful stylized logo on the back that says “Warrior Fit”. Please don’t misunderstand me. I am not anti-military but my son is just 14 years old and just trying to find his way in the world. Now he’s got a cool new shirt from the NG that he and his friends will be wearing/advertising for the NG. I asked my son if we could put it in the donation box we always have going and he resisted that. The NG visit to school seems benign on the surface but it seems to me that this is how the military might start to hook kids. Am I overreacting? My husband says I am. This isn’t sitting well with me.

Anybody have monthly gift subscription suggestions?

I would like to give a friend a monthly gift subscription for her birthday. This woman is my son's chosen grandma...meaning that even though he has two actual grandmothers, they've not pursued a relationship with my kiddo and as a result, he has bonded with this close family friend that he calls Nannie. That aside, I am fresh out of ideas for her upcoming 72nd birthday and I'm looking for something unique - such as a monthly gift subscription. She's not a big drinker - so alcohol every month might be too much. I'm hoping to come up with something other than fruit of the month or what not. Any ideas out there? Please and thank you.

Beloved vintage DC-3, the Miss Montana, to fly to the Bahamas carrying donations.

I am in tears I'm just so excited and proud of my fellow Missoulians for doing this. I am headed to Costco today to fill my car with toiletries and food so that I can take part in this mission in my own little way.

Brava Miss Montana!

The Missoula-based Museum of Mountain Flying’s Douglas DC-3 will leave Saturday night to Florida on a hurricane relief mission, with the aim of making flights daily for up to a month to storm-stricken Grand Bahama.

“They got their deposit and bank account this morning, so they’re committed to go, and the airplane’s ready to go,” Dick Komberec of the museum board said Thursday. “I understand they’ll be making two trips a day hauling 40,000 hot meals per trip.”

Miss Montana and crew will be based in Fort Lauderdale, less than 100 miles from the Grand Bahama International Airport in Freeport, the largest city in the northernmost island of the Bahamas.
