Being the Fourth of July we, of course, celebrated our country's Independence with many friends on the lake at a beautiful lake house. Home made pizza from a wood fired pizza oven. Yes you read that correctly, pizza oven on the lake. No "Hot and Ready's" at Flathead! Special thanks to Andy, Deb and Ben for the wonderful evening.
After dinner we had a special treat and got to watch Beau the dog that does math perform. It was amazing. I know, I know you're all asking "How much wine did you have before you watched the show Chris?" The answer is a lot, but that's not the point. This dog does math and I'm not just talking 1+1. He does division, multiplication and subtraction. A girl from the party (who I know was not staged) randomly asked Beau what was 12 divided by 2 and he got it (I think it's 6 right?) It was wild stuff.
Then there were the fireworks. Wow! None of this sparklers and smoke bombs that Oregon allows. In Montana anything goes and people were firing MAJOR fireworks from all the docks. Not city sponsored mind you, these are personal displays. Lots of money going up in smoke, but I certainly enjoyed it.
