    A man seeking to join a Montana Sheriff's Department is being interviewed.

    The Deputy doing the interview says, "Your qualifications all look good, but there is an attitude suitability test that you must take before you can be accepted." Then, sliding a service pistol across the desk, he says, "Take this pistol and go out and shoot six illegal aliens, six drug dealers, six Muslim extremists, and a rabbit."

    "Why the rabbit?” asks the applicant.

    "Great attitude," says the Sergeant. "When can you start?"

    And it was my brother in law that sent that to me. Born and raised in Montana and still lives there.

    I lived there too. Once for just about a year back in '73, and then again for about six months in the winter of '88, '89. My older sister has lived out there since 1970. I really liked it myself, and gave it a look before I left Nevada, but property prices are sky high there. Almost California like high. Don't know why, but they are. You need around $300K to get an average house with a tiny bit of land up there. Hell I can buy a 75 acre farm for that here in Wisconsin. I'm planning on taking a vacation out there this summer. I haven't been back there since the last time I lived there back in '89. My sister lives in Sheridan, which is kind of between Bozeman and Butte, south a little, and it's one of the prettiest places I've ever seen.

    From when we lived there 2000 to 2004 what some locals told me was prices were high to keep people from moving there in masses! I also heard that there is some type of law if you buy a house on 1 acre of land lets say, you have to have at least 1 acre between you and that neighbor. Something like that. Yeah the average house when I left and it was a dump was around 250k. There really are no jobs either except for services type jobs. I suppose there is always a possible GS job that might open up one day. If so I'm sure my husband would jump on it.

    The only thing I could never catch a fish there! Funniest thing in the world. I would have cranes land less then 500 feet from me and grab a fish. I posted help on a fishing message board once for help to catch fish. (big mistake) A person responded to me with this; "Let me get this straight lady, you live in Montana, and you cannot catch one fish"? "They should be jumping in your lap." LOL

    I liked up by Glacier National Park myself, people in Great Falls didn't like Butte much. I have no idea why, but I've drove in that area and it is pretty country. Hell, all of Montana is beautiful!

    It seems you have to either be a logger, a miner, or a cowboy in Montana, otherwise as you say, there really aren't any jobs. So it makes me wonder why there's so many million dollar plus houses up there. Well, one reason is the Californians like to sell out and hit town with a couple million, build a huge house, stay there a couple years and decide they hate the Montana winter and want to move out. So there stands a huge house with nobody in it, and they want a fortune for it. They're all over. Incredible. But I looked at houses around Sheridan, Alder, Virginia City, Ennis and Bozeman, and for between $150K and $200K, all you'd get for that kind of money is a little cabin type house sitting on a tiny little lot, no basement, no garage, nothing extra. Ta heck with that. Too expensive for me, when for $200K I can buy a real nice, large house on ten acres of land up here in Wisconsin. Which as a matter of fact I'm dealing TODAY on a nice four bedroom home sitting on 6.2 acres of land, and now don't fall over, but they're asking $89,900.00, and as the deal is going, I'll probably get it for more like $75K. This property would be $350K in Montana.

    As far as fishing goes, if you weren't using a fly rod with a popper, you need to learn how to fly fish. You'll catch one then. Nice Rainbow or Brown Trout.

    I'm surprised the PC police haven't shown up to chastise you for the joke.

    God, I loved that cartoon.

    Best rendition of Wagner's Ring Series ever done, in my completely musically clueless opinion.​
