Meetings...

 
sunny today with broken clouds over the Buttes


Had a meeting with the estate attorney in RB last week to see what needed doing to get closer to buttoning up the whole estate shebang.  He set me up with an accountant in RB that has graciously worked me into his busy schedule to help with taxes and the like.  I meet with him next Friday. 
You really have to love small town connections, turns out the accountant is a board member of the local bank that I use for the estate. A good friend of mine is the VP of the same bank, and on it goes... It helps to have people on your side.

Willie and I have been wandering the countryside, we take the road less traveled as often as possible. Yesterday we made a loop and saw a large field full of snows busy eating with the Buttes off to the side.  I stopped to take a photo and a gentleman stopped to do the same. As I turned to get back into my suv, the gentleman asked me if he could take a photo of me taking a photo. He gave me his card and explained who he was. 
"Sure, if it's only going to show my good side."
 
That evening this posted on facebook:

 

 Bless him, he's a man of his word.

  1. There are a lot of geese there. Great story about the accountant etc(-: Still waiting on my Mom's estate to finish up. Next court date is April 9th. It isn't my hold up. I am done and have been done with my part for months. It is the attorney and the court. Ready for it to all be over. I guess probate takes a couple years to complete.

    1. CiNdEe,
      There are still quite a few geese around here.
      The accountant has been very helpful in getting things moving along again. I don't understand why yours is taking so long, but each case is different I suppose.

  2. We've noticed the same thing. I did not get a picture, as we were on I-49 doing 70 on the way to Lafayette. But suddenly there were THOUSANDS of geese taking off from a rice field, I think it was; so many they had trouble getting airborne.

    I told hubby it was like something out of a National Geographic show. :)

      Wow, I bet that would have made a great photo. At least you got to experience it.

  5. That's a lot of snow geese. One time, while fishing at Jackson Meadows that we'd snowmobiled into, my friend "Honked" at a couple flying close by. Damned if those two almost landed on us and not pulling up until the last second. Then we drove down to Milton Lake just below the Jackson Meadows dam. It was completely iced over. There were at least 1000 honkers just sitting on that lake. They never moved and kept a watchful eye on us and our noisy snowmobiles.

    1. Woodsterman,
      That must have been a sight to see. Kinda surprised they didn't take off when the noisy snowmobiles came close.

    1. Old NFO,
      Thank you. Small towns have their advantages, I'm thinking.

      Thanks for your sweet words.
      Dang it was cold that day. I had on leggings under my wranglers and was still cold. I need to tough'n up before I go North.
