Hi rvers! Today’s topic is Montana and patience, but in a funny way. Speaking of being patient, haven’t posted in quite a bit because…well…we’re busy, enjoying summer which is going by much too quickly, planning our fall rv trip and much more. Next week we are off to the North Fork for four days, after we play a gig at Point of Rocks this Sunday for 4 HOURS (ouch!). I am, as promised, going to get some pics and posts up in September on those primitive campgrounds I mentioned…but ya gotta be PATIENT, ok? (See how I threw that in? Oh the wit…).
Anyway, today we will discuss cows, patience and Montana – all rolled into one for the purpose of this post. Let’s start with some photos, shall we? The road you see below is OUR DRIVEWAY to the main road…it’s all we’ve got. You will see the problem below…
Now when I think about all of the city slickers I know back east, I can only imagine seeing their faces turn purple as they scream, “I don’t have TIME for this!” Ahhh…but the beauty in Montana is that the people here have patience. They just wait until the cows move on by…if they’re late, they’re late.
Some visitors to Glacier National Park, if used to an urban, fast paced life, will run into this EVERYWHERE. No, not cows everywhere on the road. But when you are standing in line at the post office and growing antsy that the employees are “catching up” on life and gossip with their patrons (everyone is so friendly, they all know each other), the sighing, eye rolling and body language won’t make the line go any quicker. Same holds true at the grocery store, gas station, you name it.
Yep, the folks in Montana have patience (and less ulcers, I’m sure). They just don’t get the endless rushing most people do today – buzzing around like bees 24/7, constantly stressed and basically unpleasant to be around. So when you come to MT, be sure to be ready for peace, quiet and calm. If that isn’t for you, you will be subjected to the friendliness of the following popular bumper sticker which reads “WELCOME TO MONTANA, NOW GO HOME!”
Oh…and one final hint…don’t even THINK about honking that horn the second the light turns green – I’ve hardly ever heard a horn honk here…and it will draw the attention of every car in every direction as far as the ears can hear.
Patience is a virtue…try it!
