Hello, I suppose you are getting tired of me writing about branding. You should be, because I seem to write about brandings fairly often. I guess it’s because they really show how a neighborhood comes together to work or play. The season is pretty...

Rooting for the team

All my life I have seen people rooting for their team or players and have done so myself. My earliest memories are going to the high school football and basketball games as a grade schooler in Ekalaka. That would have been in the 1940s and the early...

Hat Tips

Hello, Let’s make a deal! Let’s make a deal! We all have that friend, or maybe relative, that is always looking for a deal. Maybe you are the friend or relative that is looking for “the deal.” You know what I mean. The person that will spend...

Fishing

Fishing was a big part of our life growing up in Ekalaka and Carter County. I have told some of my fishing stories before, but I don't think that I have ever written a story about fishing, so, here goes. Grandma and Grandpa Coons kept a good supply...

Hello, It’s been a long time since I read or listened to any of Aesop’s fables. I imagine there are many of you in the same boat I am. We sit and stare at the TV, clicker in hand, and complain because there is nothing good on. Oh, Seinfeld...

Water, water, everywhere

Water, water, everywhere. You don't have to be an ancient mariner to see we have plenty of water around us. People are filling sandbags, checking flood insurance policies or waiting for fields to dry...

In my last article about Frank and Clara Nies, readers learned of Clara’s early life, her education, and moving to Montana. The article also gave information about her teaching experiences in Calumet, Jordan, and the Mackenzie school, which at the...

What are those little yellow weeds?

Have you noticed the carpets of a little mustard-like yellow flower this year? The patches seem to be everywhere from road ditches to hay fields to pastures. You are likely seeing either desert or...

Hello, Do you know the song “Muleskinner Blues”? It’s an old classic. I’m not going to sing it for you. It’s a hard one to hit the high notes on. I’ve got the muleskinner blues. They actually started last fall. I’ve a friend in...

If you read this on Thursday, I’ll be making my least favorite trip to Billings. If I have my new wheelchair, the trip will be more comfortable. The trip is to have the treatment for jaw pain. That treatment had been scheduled originally for the...

Hat Tips

Hello, I think for many people, May is the best month of the year. Grass is greening up, calving is winding down, farmers are starting to curry the ground, and the flies and mosquitoes haven’t really got going yet. So you can have a drink on the...

My husband does the grocery shopping, but for decades I’ve provided him with a typed or computer generated grocery list. I may allow him to add to the list, but I always hope the store can provide all the other essentials I list. We went to Miles...

Memories

I would like to share one comment as I begin; Bill Lavell and Madlon Brence mentioned one individual, Lee Bair, recently in their articles and it brought back my memories of this man. As I remember, he had lost a leg and became a salesman. As Madlon...

 

Quarterly Legal Tip

My apologies for the late article! There have been some positive developments in my career that have delayed my submission of my Quarterly Legal Tip. I hope you will forgive my tardiness. Now on to the tip! Have you heard of the ABLE Savings...

Hat Tips

Hello, As is always said, old age is not good, but it is better than the other option. What made me think of this is my age. I’m getting old enough where I suppose I would be referred to as elderly. I used to think elderly was around 50, then I...

Robins returned before I thought the ground was thawed. Were there any worms near the surface for which robins could peck? What else do robins eat? Brice is seeing more cottontails when he looks through the windows. We used to have a cottontail...

Hello, Lena is leaving. No, not that Lena. My saddle horse. I bought Lena, I suppose, three years ago. We were trailing cattle north of Killdeer and Russ was riding her. He had saved her from going to the kill pen. A guy had dropped her at his house...

With my article about the Ekalaka Independent Basketball Tournaments giving information about scores, players, referees, businesses, etc., I never presented who placed in the top four during those nine years. I will include it at the bottom of this...

Did you get your taxes filed by April 15 or 16 or 17? Brice filed ours over the computer and the feds and state accepted both. It’s an easy enough project for Brice, but he tends to put it off. If we owed either, it would make sense to keep your...

A tribute to Ernest Tooke

I don’t remember when I first met Ernest Tooke. I don’t believe that he went to grade school in Ekalaka, but I might be wrong. So when I arrived at CCHS, as a freshman, he was a junior in the same grade as my sister, Bertha. I’m sure that I...

Hat Tips

Hello, You can tell a lot about a person by the hat they wear. At least, that is what I thought until now. I can remember Grandpa Herb and Uncle Hugh’s hats. They were sweat and grease stained. Grandpa had a few little holes cut in an old greasy...

That’s right, it happened again; snow, wind and hazardous driving conditions postponed the medical appointment to deal with my trygeminal nerve pain in the lower right jaw. That happened in January, February, but we mistakenly thought April would...

Hello, I’m not too much into vehicles. I mean I drive them a lot. But I’m not the kind of guy that lines up at the car wash when I get a little dust on a vehicle. I think I inherited that trait from my Grandpa. I don’t think he ever washed a...

I was mentally prepared to compose a series of articles about the weather starting with the day fog settled over Ekalaka most of the day. Then came WIND! That’s right, all caps; the wind deserved them. At 4:00 am, Brice got up to unplug the...
