So Tokyo Japanese Restaurant not OK? I know, quite a ways to good fresh fish, but it can be flash frozen and flown in.

And I see not one but two Italian joints. Surely one of them has to have good Italian food, just like mama used to make.

Just a quick search got about 50 places to eat. There has to be more than one good walk in dinner place and a fast food trough.

I see there is a Perkins. That was one of the few restaurants of that type that I would stop at when I drove big trucks. Predictable, palatable, filling, and decent prices.

How about Grey Goose Store And Social Club? Looks like a good place to get a bacon cheeseburger and a beer.

Pure Bliss Cupcake Company. Pure bliss, eh?
:devilish:

The Cattlemans Club Steakhouse. I like a good steak. Wrapped in bacon.

The Longbranch looks like a place that Jim would have liked. They have chicken fried steak with gravy. Yeah, Jim would like that.

Mad Mary’s Steakhouse And Saloon. Sounds like my kind of place. I like steak, wrapped in bacon, and a good beer with it. So, is Mary really mad?

I see the Silver Spur over on the ‘other side’ of the river. Looks good enough for chicken and jo jos, with a beer.

Same for Jake’s Goodtime Place. Is it always a good time there? :devilish:

The Chuckwagon. Another feedbag joint, I bet.

Caribou Coffee. @MarkJerling would be right at home, sporting his best Lycra and quaffing a cuppa joe.

Drifters Bar And Grill. Menu looks awesome. And, the serve beer.

I’m thinking I wouldn’t starve in that little prairie town. No sir.
I won't try to answer point for point, but I will address the issue of Perkins. - Room temp food and crappy service.
Advice to anyone visiting Pierre:
If you don't like Mexican food or Burger King, bring a sack lunch.

Here's a news article about a guy with giant ......

Trapped US farmer amputates leg with knife to escape grain auger | Stuff.co.nz
Yeah, you have some of that kind around. Some years ago I read in a local paper about a fisherman in his 70ies. His boat capsized and his hand got stuck between the rudder and the hull. The seawater was cold and he quickly realised that would die from hypothermia if he stayed in the water - so he got out his knife and started cutting off fingers till he got loose, then he swam to shore.

Mr. Murphy has been working hard with messing up things at work these last few weeks, resulting in long days. What never ceases to amaze me is how people think I'll somehow fix things quicker if they just keep nagging me constantly. The only remedy is to ignore incoming emails and calls completely - and warn my boss so she'll be prepared for the complaints from people being ignored

Tomorrow is Constitution Day, though. No work! Yes beer

I need to stock up on both barley juice and grape juice today.

Looks like you could use a Culver's up there in Pierre. A pretty good burger joint chain. Really good onion rings too.


Well, yesterday wtlwdwgn drove to Yellowstone from Billings and we met up for a few hours to drive through the Lamar Valley part of the park. Here is a shot of Steve taking a photo of the Lamar Valley. Tour buses and a lot of other tourists usually skip this part of the park in favor of the southern part with all it's thermal features. This is my wife's first time out in the park since 1998 and she is having a blast. We saw a grizzly on it's elk kill and plenty of other critters too. No really food photos as it was a mile off the road.

For some, humility comes naturally.

For me, it is a learned trait.

I just saw the news Bob Hawke, Australian PM (kind of like President for our American readers) died aged 89. PM 1983 to c1989.

One of his famous quotes in 1984, when Alan Bond won the America’s Cup about 09:00 was “any boss who sacks a worker for not working today would be a real *#*”. The PM used words repeated in the media that I cannot use here.

Good morning all. Last day in paradise and then we head home tomorrow to whatever brutal weather Ottawa is having right now. But that is tomorrow. For now I am sitting here going through pictures, enjoying my coffee, and listening to the sounds of the waves while everyone else is still slumbering. Today is take it easy day...do whatever you want day and for me, right now, that is chillaxing with a hot beverage. Have a great day all.

Guten Morgen!

Our temp is going up to 90F today.
Within this past week we've ran the furnace and the AC.
