Emma - 11/28/08 09:38 AM
The other day I had the opportunity to have dinner with a lady named Emma. I first met Emma about 40 years ago. When I met her she was a school teacher, and farm wife and had a strong faith in her Lord. Over the years we got to know each other and learned to appreciate each other. She was married to a farmer, who took pride in everything he did, she had two children a son and a daughter who were brought up to work and respect the things they had, one of the activities they had was 4-H , (0 comments)
Thanksgiving - 11/25/08 03:36 PM
Only two days and it's Thanksgiving where did the year go. For some it is a true time of giving thanks for the many blessings that they have, and for some it may be a little harder to find a reason to be thankful. Sometimes the days get long and the jobs we have may be a little frustrating at times, but I think if we search hard enough we can all find something to give thanks for. I for one always need to remind myself of the blessings that I have, wife, children, grandchildren, job, and so on. I hope (0 comments)
Duke - 11/17/08 10:48 AM
When I was growing up we lived on a farm. one of the things I really wanted as did most young boys of my age was a horse. I had two brothers and they had absolutely no interest in a horse, so I was pretty much on my own to convince my father that life couldn't go on without one. We went to a rural school and our mode of transportation to and from school was riding our bikes or walking, a horse would of made that trip so much more fun, it wasn't really that far only about 1/2 mile. One (0 comments)
The Great Goose Hunter - 11/11/08 02:08 PM
My father in law who passed away almost two years ago was something special. One of the favorite things that he like to do was goose hunt. Elmer had his hunting buddies who he went hunting with and if it worked out I went on occasion. The hunting vehicle was a 1965 Pontiac loaded to the gills with hunting supplies, food, shells, and so on. On one hunting trip I met Elmer and Harley in Pierre and we were to hunt the following days. You can stay in our room Elmer said, but knowing that I probably wouldn't get much sleep (0 comments)
Grandkids - 11/10/08 10:54 AM
Hey Dad can you and Mom watch the kids for the weekend? My oldest daughter and her husband were going to the Twin cities for the Michigan and Gopher game on Sat and the Vikings, Packer game on Sun. Sure we'd be happy to, we always jump at the chance to spend time with the grand-kids, so on Fri evening we were on our way to a fun filled weekend that can't be replaced by any amount of money. Emma is 4 1/2 and Deacon is 1 1/2. We watched Disney movies, played games, built forts, read books, took naps, and just (0 comments)
Changes - 11/06/08 03:41 PM
As I sit here at my computer finishing up a few details for the day listening to the weatherman tell us about the snow coming I keep thinking am I ready for the change. In South Dakota we are always having changes and that I guess is what keeps life interesting. The upcoming season brings joy to many and maybe not so much to others. It always seems like the winter season goes on forever and never ends, but it does and if we take it in stride, look on the bright side, be kind to others, before we know it the spring (0 comments)
Moving from one house to another is always a challenge, but it doesn't have to be a nightmare. Here are some simple tips on how to get it done with minimal stress and strain. •· Look at all the alternatives: hiring a moving company, for example, versus renting a truck and doing it yourself. Whichever alternative makes most sense for you, get bids from more than one vendor. •· A few days before the moving company is scheduled to arrive or you're supposed to pick up your rental truck, call to confirm that everything is on track to happen (0 comments)
