Description: A few years ago a friend of mine who sold advertising for The Courier-Journal in Louisville, Ky went WEST and became the Governor of Montana. We had a mutual girl friend, whose name we cannot mention, Privacy you know and all that. If you see either one, call me, and I will send them a delicious box of AmeriCandy for MONTANA known as The Milk Chocolate Peanut Smoothie. If you live in Montana or Kentucky you are a “smoothie“ – no doubt. What a memory I do have.
The Treasure State is Montana's official nickname, but it is also affectionately called "Big Sky Country" and the "Land of the Shining Mountains." Our fourth largest state in area is still filled with the wide open spaces of the early West. The Great Plains are high plains that stretch toward the awe-inspiring Rocky Mountains. Bighorn sheep, grizzly bear, buffalo, moose, and elk are found near the state's northern border of Canada, and Montana is the only contiguous state where wild wolf packs are still free to roam the immense, untouched wilderness.
