Monday was my 67th birthday. I remember my 7th birthday. The dining room table was surrounded by friends: Kaye, my age, her brother Gary, I always had a crush on Gary; he was two years older than we, another Gary (Cassidy), his younger brother,...

Hello, Some years ago I was at a horse sale. Seth brought in a cute little pony. A real small pony. About thirty inches tall. It was a beauty. And well broke. But not for kids. That last line kind of hurt the sale. I don’t suppose any of you need...

Montana Tales & Trails

Ready for winter? Snow shovel out, snow blower gassed up? If you are a bear, you eat a lot, then sleep for six months. If you are a bird, you may either head to the sunny south or hunker down for a...

 

Quarterly Legal Tip

In providing legal services to Eastern Montana, I find that it is essential to keep the public up-to-date on the legal trends in the area and some of the basic information about the legal system. This first article includes general information about...

We are so lucky to have Katie, Clayton and their children here in Ekalaka. Gage, their older son helped stir the gravy, he dug the dressing from the turkey and carried food to the table. Without a dishwasher, Clayton and Katie washed all the dirty...

 

Memories

V. E. Figg and crew built our present house at its location of 521 North Central Ave in the summer of 1956. We added an addition in 1984-85. The agreement was that Phyl., and I would finish all the sheet rock and paint the house inside and stain the...

Hello, Shirley says I am “Scrooge”. I’m not much into early Christmas. I don’t shop. I don’t decorate. I am critical of those that do. I know I shouldn’t be this way. I have grandkids that really look forward to this season. So I am...

Our dishwasher “died” a couple months ago. It had been ailing for many weeks, complaining each night when Brice turned it on. He did that at bedtime because I would have ear plugs keeping the sound away from me. Brice can sleep through anything;...

Hello, Saturday morning dawned cold and windy. The forecast was for warming by noon, but the brisk wind was dang sure cold early. We were on our way down to Will and Jen’s ranch to preg check cows. As usual, the drive down was pretty uneventful. I...

I apologize for not having a Bright Idea last week; one finished article rested in the computer, but no one knew about it and I was “out of it” enough not to mention it. I might add it next week. This week is already covered. I don’t like to...

Hello, I know some of my readers are suffering through the same thing I am. I am starting to forget stuff. I used to forget simple things. Things like ‘take the garbage out” or “swing by and pick up a gallon of milk”. But now it has been...

Hello, They are forecasting single digit lows for tonight. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised. It happens every year about this time. So today we will start winterizing tanks, rolling up garden hoses, and insulating the pumphouse doors. Maybe. At...

 

Bright Ideas

I tend to think of myself as I was at 27 or 30, full-voiced, opinionated, the sort of person you either liked or didn’t. I never was big, but I tried to stand tall. I was a Democrat, but there were a few other Democrats in this mostly Republican...

Hello, In the fall I attend several livestock auctions. Sometimes I am selling. Sometimes I am buying. Usually I am just watching. This helps when I have to do my year end balance sheet for my bankers. Note the term. Bankers. I have more than one....

 

Bright Ideas

The core of our house went up in the 1950s. It consisted of a very small bedroom, bathroom, and kitchen — just enough room for an old bachelor to settle at the end of the day. The outside walls were split logs, revealed in later modifications....

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. Breast cancer has touched the lives of many of us; whether you are a breast cancer survivor, in the midst of breast cancer treatment, or have a loved one who has been diagnosed. For women in the United...

Hello, As we get closer to Halloween, it gives time to think of Halloweens from the past. Several years ago there was a fire called the Halloween fire. It was a windy devil and a fire started over toward Sidney, Montana. It burned for miles and...

 

Memories

I would like to finish my articles about Bob Renshaw and his family. He has such a detailed account of their homestead days and activities of people during those years. Renshaw even tells of his years in the court house as the clerk and recorder. In...

This year we were lucky to harvest plenty of tomatoes to eat, freeze, and share. We had enough apples to can applesauce and make a pie and crumble. Brice still picks the occasional apple off the tree. A small pepper crop turns colors in our house; ca...

Hello, I’m tired of warnings. I mean I am really tired of warnings. The seat belt warning comes on every time I get in the pickup. I do fasten my seat belt. I don’t need a warning. The stove warns me when the burner is hot. I learned as a child n...

My chores growing up

Growing up in Ekalaka and Carter County, I always had a lot of chores to do. I first milked a cow and retained the milk, at the age of 4 and that was pretty much my job from then on. We always had a milk cow and sometimes more than one. One time my...

When I was buying magazine subscriptions for my Grandsons, I purchased a year of National Geographic for Kids. Did I want the magazine subscription for adults? Sure, why not? First I received three back issues. This month’s magazine features Jane...

Hello, I get thousands of calls a week about my column. Well, not really. I get hundreds. Okay, I get a call every once in awhile. Maybe two a year. But they are calls. And I get thousands of letters. Okay. I got two. My favorite was a lady from...

When I was thinking about retiring, the Prairie Singer told me not to do that. Her ideas and mine were rarely the same, but she said it was all right to “shake things up” (her words, not mine) every once in a while. Thinking of you, Celia. There...
