Banjo Man and I left the lake last Sunday afternoon.
For the first time in six years I did not cry all the way to Thompson Falls. Why, you ask?
Because I was eating ice cream. Not just any ice cream, but soft-serve vanilla ice cream from The Pantry. I’ll let you in on a little tip: if you buy a large cup of The Pantry’s soft serve vanilla ice cream and take it home and freeze it, you will have something that tastes like homemade, right-from-the-crank-machine, ice cream.
It’s pretty wonderful.
I buy mini chocolate chips from The Pantry and add them to the ice cream to make….TA DAH!!!–chocolate chip ice cream.
And because I was eating this from the time we left the lake until somewhere deep into Montana, I was too busy to cry.
Banjo Man was so happy. He now knows The Secret to Leaving Idaho Without Tears.
After I finished my ice cream–and believe me, I made it last a long time–I took some pictures.
Because Montana is photogenic.
