“Drummond Drive In” (or) “Planning to Remodel”

This quarter’s Tell us Something was recorded on October 10th, 2013 at the Top Hat Lounge in Missoula, MT. The theme was “Be Careful What You Wish For”.

Mark Gibbons shares his story “Drummond Drive In” (or) “Planning to Remodel”. Mark Gibbons works as a mover for a moving company with Lumpin Leo and Leapin Larry. They go to Drummond, MT to help a guy whose house had been destroyed by a tractor trailer truck that wrecked into it.

Mark Gibbons has been around, in and out of Missoula all of his life.  He grew up in Alberton, went to college at The University of Montana(off and on), worked whatever jobs were available from labor to teaching.  He’s been married all of his life. The two best things he ever did are almost 30 now — his sons: one in graduate school and one working in the woods.  Mark has been lucky that he’s been able to entertain himself with reading, writing, listening to and telling stories.
