There is a lot of wildlife to view in our area but not everyone sees it. I had to laugh when I was driving a bus in Glacier National Park. People used to ask if they would see wildlife and I would say probably not in my bus as I had bad luck in the...

There is plenty of football news all of a sudden this month as the NFL starts their pre season and college teams regroup for yet another season. I notice that for fantasy football freaks there is no end to trades and the like all making the choosing...

 

My Answer

Q: If Jesus came back to earth and walked down the street of almost any one of our major cities, would anyone recognize Him? I’m curious about this, because we don’t really know what He looked like, do we? A: No, the Bible doesn’t tell us...

This week I was going to advise going for a couple of days to Zortman and having a good steak dinner, staying maybe at the historic Buckhorn cabins and exploring Mission Canyon. The terrible forest fire there stopped that travel guide. It reminds me...

Hasn’t this weather been tough on so many of us? Just hot and hotter and hotter and little or no rain and the National Weather Service says it is going to stay that way all through the rest of July. I was afraid to ask them about August. I can...

 

My Answer

Q: Sometimes I feel like God is very close to me, but then something happens and I begin wondering if He's even there. I wish my faith wasn't so up and down, but it is. Am I always going to be this way? A: No, you don’t always need to be this...

My bedroom is a wonderful gallery of some of the best art that I own. It started out as a tribute to Grandma Moses. I love her art and through the years have collected seven large prints covering such subjects as winter scenes, Halloween, harvest...

I am just glad that it is not football season right now much as I miss the game. With this horrible July heat wave, it would be difficult to play football or any outdoor game that requires exertion. One would hope that when August rolls around, it...

I have written before that I am not a big fan of potato salad. That is strange because I like everything that goes into potato salad. The other day I found a very old recipe in a Betty Crocker cookbook and thought I would try that. The biggest differ...

The University of Montana football team is getting a new and better schedule as the years roll on. Most know that when the Grizzlies started playing the University of North Dakota, that brought a whole new level of football to the Big Sky much as it...

One of the worst things about getting old are all the wonderful memories and all the wonderful people that will not ever be seen again. As most of you know, I have written again and again about my life as a boy and young man on Clear Creek. But...

When I was a mere sapling, how I loved June. School was finally out and I could spend my summer doing the things I loved to do the most, work at the Lou Lucke Company and spend all the rest of the time at a cabin out on Clear Creek. At the Lou Lucke...

This is the time of year that I like best. I can watch my garden take off in a flurry of buds of all sorts and I am amazed at what can be done being a plain dirt gardener. Most impressive this year has been my sweet rocket. It was a flower that grew...

With the NBA Finals between Golden State and Cleveland all but over at this writing and I will be having more about that next week, but with that over I am really looking forward to football season. It is the middle of June and the start of college...

 

My Answer

Q: Since the Bible says God created everything, doesn’t this mean He also created the devil? And if He created the devil, doesn’t this mean God is actually responsible for all the evil in the world? A friend of mine who likes to argue about...

Do I think that LeBron and the Cleveland Cavaliers are going to win another championship? As I write these words it is Saturday afternoon and Golden State is ahead one game and only one game has been played. I do think that LeBron James is simply the...

When I write about my childhood on Clear Creek sometimes I make it sound like we spent lots of time there in the winter. We did not. There were no four wheel drives then and in our family the first day on Clear Creek was often the first day of stream...

I love May. It is because of the flowers. They come out, first the tiny yellow buttercups, and then a whole host of flowers follow them. It all starts in May. It is confusing. Old timers from Montana call yellow bells buttercups. So do I but...

 

My Answer

Q: I don’t think it matters what people believe about God. Everybody has their own opinion about religion, and they can’t all be right. In fact, maybe they’re all wrong. I’ve decided I’m not going to think about God. A: If you refuse to...
