 My wrist is nearly healed enough to tat.  I tried it a week ago, but still hurt, so still on hiatus.  I am getting frustrated waiting.

There will be another hosp stay later this summer/fall at some point for farmguy and I will be wanting to tat while sitting at his bedside.

Last week we took a trip to Medora ND to see the scenery and the outdoor musical. The Musical was a lot of fun, even for Farmguy.  This link will take you to a google images page with photos of previous musicals and also shows the stage and seating set up.

We had a good time.
We toured both the South and North sections of Theodore Roosevelt National Park and saw some awesome scenery and interesting animals.

I forgot my camera, and didn't see any disposables for sale anywhere we stopped,. so the photos below are taken from the internet with appropriate links to where I found them.

and the Painted Canyon

we also saw some interesting other things.  These are called Cannonball Concretions.  They formed from sediment that stuck to something and ended up rounded.  Then were buried in other sediment and now are showing up in the middle of bluffs

Very unique things to see.

we saw Bison, Pronghorn Antelope, Prairie Dogs, Eagles, Hawks, Elk, Mule Deer, White Tail Deer, and

Wild Horses

Farmguy ended up about 2' from a rattle snake.  He didn't realize just what the noise was, he thought it sounded like a cicada or other bug, not like he thought a rattle snake sounded.

I think we saw the exact same horses in the picture, or at least some very like them.  They were beautiful.

We didn't see any Big Horn sheep which was a bit disappointing.  But all in all we had a good time.


  1. Interesting scenery. I hope you and farmguy will soon both be fit.

  2. Ah Medora! Such fun and the parks so calm and peaceful yet teeming with life, I love them too! I hope your wrist gets better soon, miss your tatting...

  3. Oh those lovely badlands remind me of the valley I grew up in, probably formed in similar way. It was Drumheller, Alberta Canada. Best to rest the wrist. Praying for a speedy recover for you both.

  4. I know you're impatient for healing. I hope your wrists cooperate soon!

  5. Sounds like a great place to visit. I'm putting it on my "to visit" list. Too bad about your wrist not healing as fast as you'd like. I hope it starts feeling better soon.

  6. Good to see you posting and know you had a good outing. Praying for the wrists and Farm Guy's upcoming stay - and those long waiting days until then.

  7. Nice to see you blogging, looks an interesting and lovely place to visit.
    Hope your wrist gets better soon

  8. Gorgeous scenery! Sorry to read that your wrist is still in rough shape. I cannot imagine your frustration.
