Comments on the October 8, 2017 Camp IOU newsletter.

“The roping was the Wrangler National Team Roping Finals. I have roped at the finals two other times, but have never had any luck. This is the largest payout I have received for an event. The horse I rode is a 9 year old mare that I bought about 2 months ago. She does everything right so it makes my part easy. Team roping is a sport that allows you to get away from the grind of the work week or day. You have to be focused and in the moment, much like golf. It’s also one of the few hobbies that will actually pay for itself if your lucky.” – Travis Nye

Re: Afternoon Tea at the Jersey Lilly 2016
Very many thanks for sharing this review – together with photos – of an astounding tea party. I was deeply impressed with the staging of the event and the trouble to which the ladies had gone to make it so special.

In Victorian and Edwardian times, the milliners of London created the most fabulous hats for ladies. Actresses led the fashions and not just the wealthy appearing in the Royal Enclosure at the Ascot Races.

I noted the beautiful tea services being used and the decorum of the event. Most impressive coming from our cousins over the pond!!!! At least some people appreciate the living standards and life style of a bygone age.

Please let the sentiments and admiration of a Brit be known to those who organised and attended this splendid function.
Warm regards as always.

“My great uncle was Vern Thomason from Jordan area; since he also raised sheep we assume he may have taken the wool to Ingomar for shipping. We had some contact with him long ago, before he died; and we were able to go out to the old ranch with permission from the current owner (about forty years ago now). He told a story to my youngest brother, about a man who murdered someone in the area; and the law was going to be some days away at that time…Read more

LINDA LOU: Although Owen Badgett does not do email we got Peggy’s story to him by phone. And we will ask around for more information about the sheepherders that frequented Ingomar, and share with readers. Thanks Peggy!

“I knew Owen years ago when I lived in Miles City. I still have a poetry book that he autographed for me. Its in a box but I still have it! Owen used to come down to the Hole In The Wall where a bunch of us girls worked and he would come down and say hey and hang out for a bit.:) I hope he had a good turn-out at the Museum last night.” – Stephani S-C.

Lilly Langtry Old-Fashioned Afternoon Tea Planned at Jersey Lilly in Ingomar

The Jersey Lilly, in Ingomar, Montana, is having an old-fashioned afternoon tea at 1:00PM, Thursday, June 19th, 2014, and you are invited. “This historic establishment just seemed like the perfect place for an event like this,” said Jersey Lilly owner June Nygren, who plans to grace the occasion attired in a special Lilly Langtry outfit. Langtry was a famous actress in the 1880s who toured with her own stage production company, and was celebrated for her beauty and charm. “Tea-goers are invited to wear their favorite afternoon attire, or come in costume,” said Nygren. Hats are welcome – including cowboy hats, no white gloves are necessary, and tea-goers can be prepared to enjoy an afternoon of fun.

The Jersey Lilly was actually named for Lilly Langtry (June can give you the details), so it is perfect that this tea will be held acknowledging Langtry’s place in history. The event will begin at 1:00PM in the afternoon, and will feature special “savories” to eat, and various assortments of tea. The cost is $10.00 per person, and those that bring their favorite cup and saucer, and have a story to share about it, will enjoy a special surprise.

“I am really looking forward to enjoying the afternoon with our tea-drinking guests,” added Nygren.

For more information on the event, or to make reservations, please call the Jersey Lilly at (406) 358-2278.
