Marty’s photo of the day #3648: Deb and I just returned to Montana after a week-long trip to Minnesota for Deb’s father’s funeral. Milt Froehlich actually died back in January and caught COVID-19 while in the nursing home. He was too ornery to let COVID kill him, but after he recovered it was just time to go. Like for many who died during the height of the pandemic, the family moved the funeral to the summer, and it allowed friends and relatives to attend the two-day event.

I took this photo while driving across The Badlands of North Dakota. And yes, if you are a Bruce Springsteen fan, you will be stuck on the song for the rest of the day.
