Sometime in the 1960s I am sitting in front of the black and white TV in our home in Penn Square Village and on comes this commercial for a new type of pen. A ball point pen. You don’t buy new ink cartridges for it when it needs refilling. You just throw it away. Part of our new disposable society. The quarterback says to his fellow players: “OK boys, here’s the play; buy two Bic Clic pens; get one free.”
IT IS NOT OFTEN I get to have my family accompany me on business travels so it is a rare treat to have the gang along on two trips around the Great State of Montana.
It’s not hard to put on the miles. The Great Circle Trip as I’m calling it adds up to about 970 miles between business and non-business activity. And that keeps us in the western third of the state! We also take a short trip to Helena included in this slideshow.
