Hello, We started cutting hay over the weekend. I believe we are the first ones in the field again this year. I just do it to upset Russ, one of my neighbors. The forecast is for rain later in the week. Most ranchers are going to wait until this...

My mother's garden

I think that I might have written before about my mother’s garden when we were growing up in Ekalaka. In a recent Eagle, I saw Lois Lambert’s story about their garden and how it was so late getting in so I decided to write something else. I am...

 

Conversations with God

Hello God, it's me, Mara: You know, Lord, here’s a thought about the Wilderness, the Boondocks, and the Backcountry. While we’re all busy traveling life’s demanding way, we can’t help but notice where the forest fires have ravaged the...

Hello, I suppose you’ve learned over the years that I like kids and horses. I grew up in a family that liked kids and horses. We would trim horses up and go to the races in Kenmare, or the Fourth of July parade in Berthold. We went to play days in...

This article is not about marijuana, often called “grass”, no, it’s about ground covers. Town property owners are required to maintain their lawns with grass mowed to acceptable levels. And most try to do that, mowing between rains sometimes....

 

Conversations with God

Hello God, it’s me, Mara: You know, Lord, spiritually significant men in our lives bless us in countless ways. First, is my father; because of his type of work, we were able to begin our day together at breakfast as he led in our family altar. We w...

We’ve all been waiting too long for spring to arrive, for overnight lows to stay above freezing, for lilacs to bloom and fruit bearing bushes to flower, be pollinated, with the promise of wonderful tastes to come. Luckily that held off long enough...

Hello, We branded a few days ago. Branding is one of the jobs that you kind of dread, but you kind of love. The two hardest parts of a branding bee are preparing food, and lining up the day. It begins with lining up a crew. You need several people....

Hello God, it’s me, Mara: You know, Lord, here’s a cute one on Love and Marriage – as it seems that June is sometimes THE month couples pick to marry, right? So – here’s’ some ’Food for Thought’! Man: How much is this sparkling diamon...

Monday was Memorial Day, or Decoration Day as it was originally known, meant to honor soldiers lost in the Civil War. But when the country found itself in another war, World War I, the holiday was changed to honor all fallen soldiers. Memorials to...

Hello, I learned many decades ago to never complain about the rain. And we’ve had our fair share of it lately. Rains for a day or two. Then dries for a day. Then rain again. Now for Memorial Day weekend it is more of the same. Writing this on Frida...

 

Conversations with God

Hello God, it’s me, Mara: You know, Lord, an occasion arose recently where ‘people watching’ was the order of the day. Sitting in the waiting room we were waiting for our friend to be called in to see her doctor. You know, Lord, one really can...

We have waited for weeks for our garden to dry enough to till, only to have more rainfall. Lawns were mowed quickly between showers. Yes, it is nice to have the moisture, but when can we plant? Our forecast for the week was warmer and drier. On a Mon...

 

Conversations with God

Hello God, it’s me, Mara: You know, Lord, here’s an interesting thought: what we are is more important that what we do! No matter what, there is always going to be someone in our ‘class/group’, with as much “smarts” and education as we...

Hello, A lot of ranchers have gone to May calving. Calf your cows out on green grass. Like the deer and the antelope do. It will be fun they said. You won’t have to fight through the mud and the snow. It will be fun they said. Your calves won’t...

To continue the Mumedy family history, I will move on to Leona as she was well qualified as clerk for the different attorneys in Carter County and went on to Missoula, Montana to work for an attorney and also for the CCCs. She reported that in 1941...

I bought calendars late in December for my husband and a friend featuring hot peppers. What would I get for myself? I decided on herbs, assuming they would be familiar herbs we grow outside our back door. Some were: rosemary, sage, chives, oregano,...

Hello, Shirley and I attended our oldest granddaughter’s high school graduation this past weekend. I don’t feel old enough to have a granddaughter that will be going off to college next fall. I’m sure many of you have had, or will have, that...

Hello Dog, it's me, Mara: You know, Lord, reading about Psalms 23, written by Philip Keller (long years ago) along with a peaceful picture of sheep, suggested several subjects. That lovely picturesque country scene reminded a friend of her growing...

Hello, Happy seis de Mayo! Seis de Mayo is the day after Cinco de Mayo. Not many people celebrate it, but I do. It is one day closer to the Miles City Bucking Horse Sale. Yesterday was Cinco de Mayo. They don’t celebrate it much in Mexico. It’s...

Sunday was Cinco de Mayo (May 5), a holiday meant to commemorate the Battle of Puebla, fought between the Mexican and French armies in 1862. In Mexico’s history, it’s generally considered a minor event. But a century and a half later, it is still...

 

Conversations with God

Hello God, it’s me, Mara: You know, Lord, as Mother’s Day approaches, we remember Mom and her hands which were always busy. They were wrinkled, shriveled and maybe a bit weak having been ‘tools’ she used in her life to reach out, grab hold...

As I continue my articles about the Mumedy family, I will add a little more information about Andrew and Margaret written by Leona, their daughter. “The Mumedy family came to Carter County from Dodge, Nebraska in the early 1900. They homesteaded...

I’ve been thinking about this article for weeks, watching the grass green up everywhere I looked. Brice reported seeing the beginning of buds on our old apple tree. I hope it doesn’t bloom too early, only to have blossoms frozen leaving us with...
