Next time you find yourself in Red Lodge, Montana, make sure to stop at The Red Box Car Drive-In. As our title suggests, they serve up the best onion rings in the land--and we've had them from coast to coast to coast. Unfortunately, Google's "street view team" (or whatever they call themselves) mis-timed their visit to Red Lodge. It appears that they cruised through town before 11AM. Don't make the same mistake if you wish to avail yourself of these golden delights. BTW, the chocolate malts aren't bad either.

Ivan & Bucky

Back in 1997, I never would have imagined that Ivan (aka: "the giraffe") would have a web page devoted to his passing.

Sitting here more than 20 years later, I'm not surprised. When Ed and I did the "photo safari" thing that day, this alpha-male
Giraffa camelopardalis reticulata provided one of the most memorable moments of my life. Thanks, big guy.
