  • Conversations with God

    Updated Apr 24, 2024

    Hello God, it’s me, Mara: You know, Lord, some of us were chatting about our life when we were kids. One friend shared that when she was about 4 years old, her mom’s friend stopped by to visit. She said, “Even at my young age, I was chatty. That is, until Mom’s friend turned to me and said, ‘You have diarrhea of the mouth.’ “She might have said it with a smile on her face, as I don’t think she really meant to insult me, but her words felt like a gut punch – even way back then. I thought to myself, ‘I guess grow-ups want me to...

    Another one of my teaching colleagues, Alice Bassett, has passed on to that big school in the sky where there is eternal duty free lunch.

Alice was an amazing kindergarten teacher who suffered from very severe arthritis, which forced her to take early retirement. Although she lived with daily pain, she had an indomitable spirit. Before she came to Big Timber to...

    April 22, 2024 Our countryside at Capitol and on Tie Creek is greening up. The snow showers, and the few misty rains, have helped settle the dirt, but we could use a nice long slow shower, now. It seems to be windy and cold on track meet days, so the track season has lagged behind this year. Dick and Erma Albert didn’t even leave town this week. They didn’t really need to go shopping in the Hills. Erma is back to two physical therapy sessions per week, and that is helping her lots. They both went to the Senior Citizen din...
