June 9th, 2017. Day 9.
We woke up at the Sunrise Campground RV Resort in Bozeman.
It was an interesting morning because the van wouldn’t start due to a dead battery. However, Dave had the forethought to bring jumper cables so our camping neighbor was able to help us out.
We went to the Starbucks and worked and Dave napped.
Then Dave played at the Bear Creek Respite Center in Bozeman, a 45 minute show which everyone loved.
It was a relatively small place when compared with some of the facilities we have seen; it was the size of a large home. They had invited their friends and neighbors and so there were about 30 people at the show. One couple who was celebrating their 50th anniversary really enjoyed the show and she started crying when Dave played “I Can’t Help Falling in Love with You”.
People told us jokes at the end of the show and several asked for business cards while we were being served coffee and homemade rhubarb tart and watermelon.
After the show we drove to Billings where we are, as we podcast, sitting in the parking lot of a big box store after having dinner at a pizza and chicken place.
We sat in a chain restaurant, bought a pretzel and played Scrabble. There were a few good words and no bingos. Dave won, getting 11 of the 12 E’s and Stephanie had 4 I’s. Final score: 352-227.
Tomorrow we are off to Sheridan, Wyoming!
Dave tries some new sign-offs and it doesn’t fly.
Dave proposes a game segment to the podcast.
