summer: The Boys of Summer. Go Sabre Dogs! - 07/31/19 06:53 PM
It wouldn't be summer with out The Boys of Summer. I've written several posts over the years about the historic base ball field across the street from my home, Corbett Field. The famous Satchel Page was a member of Minot's local team, The Mallards, back in the day.
Today Corbett Field is home to The Souris Valley Sabre Dogs. The dogs are just wrapping up their 2nd year here in Minot and I couldn't be happier that this team plays right across the street from my home (also that my son Timmothy is an employee of The Sabre Dogs).

summer: When You Live With 9 Months of Winter... - 07/31/19 08:16 AM
Enjoy Your Summer!
Of  course North Dakota is not covered with snow 9 months of the year but it often seems that way to me. When Spring gives way to Summer the hardest thing to do is to balance chores with pleasure (have you noticed that I blog a lot less in our 3 months of summer?). In honor of those 3 months (June - July - August) here are 3 of my favorite things about Summer.
While we do seem to manage to grill about 6 months of the year grilling and picnics rate highly among my summer pleasures. The picture below was … (10 comments)

summer: Kids Wierd Ideas - 07/18/08 02:21 PM
Like all kids, my 6 year old and my 8 year old (especially my always inventive 8 year old daughter) come up with some unique ways to entertain themselves.
I'm going to explain this one first because it makes the picture even sillyier. This was a game of: I will swing on my belly from the tree swing while holding a swimming noodle and try to bean you while you are in the pool trying to splash me. Got it? I'm pretty sure my son didn't.


summer: HOORAY! It's the 1st day of Summer... Again! - 07/10/08 12:37 AM
For my 6 year old son and I it's kind of like the First day of summer... again.
On Memorial Day my son, Timmothy (Yes I named my son Timmothy Timm) was entertaining himself by balancing on a 3-1/2' retaining wall. Yes he lost his balance, yes he broke his arm (elbow), yes his cast comes off TODAY, Hooray! I have to note that it was his right arm and he is also right handed.
I can't wait to throw ball with him, ride bike again, teach him golf, let him ride his new scooter and all those things a 6 … (3 comments)
