The picture here was taken while my hubby and I were rock hounding for rose quartz, jasper, garnets and a few others.  The scenery was spectacular . . . as is much of Montana. 
     Since Monday was intense ~ I thought I'd share some fun stats with you today.  Next Tuesday I'll share the final 25 fun stats.  smile
