Away go troubles, down the drain

I saw a segment on CNBC today featuring the CEO of Roto Rooter.

He mentioned that the day after Thanksgiving is Roto Rooter's busiest day of the year, by 47%.

I'll leave you to figure out exactly why.

Come on courage, let's be heard
Turn feelings into words
American equality has always been sour
An attitude I would like to devour

My name is Peace, this is my hour...

Can I get just a little bit of power?

Last night, Bells joined my sister, India and I at the Gallatin Gateway Inn. They had a sweet buffet set up in this huge ballroom. They also have a fireplace so big that I could stand in it. Well, if it weren't for the huge, burning logs and my flammable, polyester Speed Racer pajamas. It was a good spread.

Unfortunately, I forgot my camera, so no photos...

Today, my sister, Bells, Barney, Puck, Shaman and I drove down the Gallatin River Canyon.

First, we took a hike along the river, just north of Swan Creek.

It was bee-yooo-ti-full.

Then we drove down to check out Big Sky and Moonlight Basin, which both opened yesterday.

Big Sky:

Moonlight Basin:

Then we took a hike to Ousel Falls:

The Falls were frozen.

Lower Falls:

The stream was frozen on top, but running underneath. This is a round ice floe that was spinning around in a opening in the ice:

The Upper Falls looked like cauliflower:

Fall is here, hear the yell
back to school, ring the bell
brand new shoes, walking blues
climb the fence, books and pens
I can tell that we're going to be friends
