We antiqued across Montana for a couple of days (it seems as though the state gets longer as you drive through it). We also had dinner with a friend in Butte, Montana which was a very nice start to our day.

From Montana we ended up in North Dakota. I only took one picture, but it is all that is necessary. It could be anywhere in the state.

My Dad used to say that there are parts of North & South Dakota where you can see the back of your head from a six foot stepladder!

The next morning we entered Minnesota we were invited by Bruce Johnson to visit him and his parents and his very nice collection on machines. What a treat. Bruce's parents are gems and fixed us breakfast. Then we went to the basement where he stores his machines. Something else as you will see in the pictures.

We visited another collector in the St. Cloud area and stayed over there. We ate dinner in a fun Diner that took us back to the 1950s for a time.

The next morning we were at a hotel with an actual restaurant instead of the usual continental breakfast room. I finally got a real breakfast and decent coffee!

Clarinet revenge........
I also bought a tonette on the trip. This is an instrument (only some might call it that) which was my first instrument when I was about 9. If the abuse gets too bad, I plan using in the back seat to my personal advantage. So beware fellow traveling companions!!
Don't abuse the Old Clarinet Man......

Today we stopped in North Platte, Nebraska and visited the Golden Spike Tower. We climbed to the viewing floor to view the world's largest rail yard. The photos show a panoramic view of Union Pacific's Bailey Yard. We enjoyed it but it didn't quite measure up to last years stop to see the world's biggest ball of twine in Kansas. The last photos show Stan as he boarded the train for Portland. He looks a bit sad. :cry: We promised him a veggie delight pizza and he changed his mind at the last moment. It also helped when they wouldn't allow him to board with his clarinet.

It's been several Union trips since I found something really nice in an antique shop. Today my luck changed. I bought this Salter cabinet that was made for Columbia. I'm delighted with it.

Does anyone have an idea what machine should go on the square top? The largest oak Columbia that I have seen is a model BII. But I have seen matching cabinets for the BI and BII. I would appreciate any thoughts.

Thanks, Jerry Blais

Guess they didn't want any competition for the whistle.
