Jim

Jackson, Montana is located at the foot of the Big Hole Divide between the Bitterroot and Pioneer Mountain Ranges in Southwestern Montana. The population of Jackson is 38, but Rose's Cantina in Jackson's tiny downtown serves population surges of thirsty and hungry travelers passing through on their way to Dillon or Missoula.  Jeff met Jim at the Cantina while stopping for lunch on his way to Wisdom.  That's Wisdom, Montana, not some new, enlightened state of being.  Jim was having lunch with his son and daughter-in-law.  He is 89 years old and has lived somewhere between Jackson and Wisdom for close to 60 years.  When asked if he is retired he replied "No.  I can't afford to retire!"
