in a perfect world of yancies: Thanksgiving in Montana

27 November 2007

Thanksgiving in Montana

Taken on Snoqualmie Pass, on our way out of Seattle

A long drive, but worth it. We had turkey at Marisa and Ryan's; had drinks with Chet (and his brother and sister); met up with people I'd not seen in many years; went sledding at 3am (well, Mimi and Marisa did, at least) watched football (f**k Mizzou) with Mike; hung out at Merrica's cool new apartment. . . . So much fun I forgot to take very many pictures, but I did get a few: please enjoy.

Now that's a big remote control

How pass the time while the turkeys cook? Well, we could ask Maraya to show us some of what she's learned in Karate class . . .

Thanks, Marisa and Ryan!

Marisa and Ryan's road

How much has Helena changed since I lived there? This much

Taken by Emily Donahoe: her apartment building. Was cool (if perhaps a bit weird) to see her again after like 15 years. She's doing well--does, among other things, most everything for Your Time, which is put out by the Independent Record. . . .

Emily's new dog Abra (also her picture)

Well, I tried to get a good photo of Emily with my phone, and I feel like I came close with this one . . .

Later, back at Marisa and Ryan's:

Um, yes, Ryan is wearing Mimi's new boots . . . um, no, they didn't really fit . . .

Finally, how Montana is this? (Taken on the highway outside of Helena when we were on our way home)
