Near Macdonald Pass north of Helena, Montana, on Hwy 12 is a pullout where water coming down the mountain gushes from a pipe. Many people fill water bottles there. A friend of mine from Butte would stop with 10 or 12 gallon milk jugs and fill them. The water in Butte tastes terrible, and this was her solution. Yeah, for me the point of great tasting water is not to taste it! Love all your insights and “outsights”!

Your little vignettes are like gems. Thank you for recording them and sending them! It is obvious that your students enjoy you as much as you enjoy them! You probably know that Japanese literature is full of ghost stories, so I’m sure your students were familiar with the stories behind Halloween, though All Hallows Day is a Christian holiday. Years ago my cousin sent me a whole set of Japanese children’s books, most of them ghosts stories. If I can find them , (probably in one of the numerous boxes in my garage,) I’ll give them to you! The stories were easy to read.

Thanks for keeping in touch!
