The curtain closes on another harvest season

It looks like the 2011 harvest season has wrapped up. My friend "Gunsmoke" Gary Gollehon tells me that his friend, Todd-The-Custom-Cutter Man, is anticipating driving down to Texas, Oklahoma (a good name for a musical), and Kansas to take a look-see at conditions down in those parts. Winter wheat seeding in the south is fast and furious as there have been some reports of moisture in those states but, unfortunately, no sub-moisture on which to rely.

Meet the Lizardman

He's "the Lizardman" and he's my guest at 4:35 this afternoon (Friday) on the Puffman Show. This guy is a pioneering figure in the world of body modification. And I thought my two radio microphone tattoos were odd! The Lizardman has endured an estimated 650 to 700 hours of tattooing. He's had five Teflon horns subdermally implanted above each of his eyes to form horned ridges, four of his teeth have been filed into sharp fangs, his tongue has been bifurcated (split) and get this afternoonsiders: The Lizardman estimates the work done to transform him would, at full price, cost close to $250,000 and he's still not done!

Hey grandpa, what’s for dinner

This first of October weekend is a great weekend in which to work up a hunger in the Golden Triangle. Harvest fests abound with the Brady United Methodist Church holding their fall dinner tomorrow (Saturday) night from 5 to 7 at the Brady Community Hall. I wonder if the infamous Gary Gollohon will be there chowing down!

Edward's the VP of Exhibits & Archives and he's one of my favorite guests to interview. The man i

I always wondered about those Wal-Mart Greeters

I've always been curious about those "Wal-Mart Greeters". I mean, who are they, where do they come from, did they used to work, why would ANYONE in their right mind want to stand at the front doors and greet the "Walmartians" as they enter the store. Believe me, I've seen my share of "Walmartians" on e-mail "forwards" and it's looks like a pretty strange neighborhood to me. Last evening, I was reading Montana History at the Heritage Center here in Shelby.

Time to throw the switch

I was at the Marias Heritage Center last evening (Tuesday) reading our Montana History and I was able to conclude the late William Yenne's (it rhymes with penny) tome, "Switchback". Most interesting, the man spent almost all of his life working for the National Park Service, most of it at Glacier

It will be a “grizzly” kind of day

This Saturday, the 6th of August, marks this summer's Grizzly Day celebration in Dupuyer. I've been there a time or two before and I can't wait to go back this year. Of course, on the way, I'll stop by the Lighthouse and chew the fat about fishing with Bob Kovatch who's a great asset to my Old Fishing Hole program

Bluegrass on the Bay Kicks off Friday!

The 9th annual Bluegrass on the Bay kicks off Friday night at Odd Fellows Park in Great Falls. I'm not an odd fellow(!)...but, I'd sure like to be there.

My old friend Dave Wilson is stopping by the Puffman Show Thursday afternoon at 4:35 to tell us about this year's event which, of course, benefits The History Museum in the Electric City.

San Francisco Considering Banning Sales of All Pets

A proposal to ban all pets sales in San Francisco is being considered by the city’s Board of Supervisors.

According to those who have proposed the ban, the rational behind it is twofold. It would encourage San Franciscans to adopt animals from shelters and rescue organization, and it would put an end to what animal rights activists claim are inhumane conditions in puppy mills and kitten factories.

Meet Naki’o, the First Dog With Four Prosthetic Paws [VIDEO]

Abandoned as a puppy when his owners fled their foreclosed-upon Nebraska home, Naki’o lost all four of his paws to severe frostbite after stepping into a freezing puddle in the home’s abandoned basement. He was rescued, but forced to crawl on his belly to get around. Happily, new owner and veterinary technician Christie Tomlinson successfully organized a fundraiser to have Naki’o’s two back legs fitted with OrthoPets prosthetics. When Naki’o enthusiastically took to his new hind-legs like they were the real deal, OrthoPets founder Martin Kaufmann decided to complete the set free of charge, making Naki’o is the first dog to ever be fitted with four prosthetic limbs.
