Does this make me a Montanan?

I think I have  adjusted to life in Hamilton. Here are a few examples why I have come to this conclusion.

• When someone was discussing the amazing “spread of the bull” I didn’t have to secretly wonder what that meant.

• I have driven safely through the 6 unmarked four way intersections safely. Even though there are no stop or yields signs anywhere to be seen.

• I have heated my house with a cord of wood this winter. Just for you non-roughing it people, I have included a definition : “A cord is a unit of measure of dry volume used in Canada and the United States to measure firewood and pulpwood.” Every morning I wake up, build my fire, and consider myself quite the pioneer.

• I have started calling Stevensville “Stevi” this pretty much makes me a local.

• Through great peer pressure from my boys they are going to take “hunters safety."  I will become a huge fan of hunting if they shoot the turkey that still mocks me.

I am sure my list could continue, but I think you get the general idea. Maybe it’s time for me to buy a goat and start wearing Camo.
