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...

 

Conversations with God

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...

Hello, Do you ever think about boards? There are a lot of boards. Oh, not the 2x4 or 2x6 boards. But like the barber board, the hairdresser board, the board of animal health…the list can go on forever. I didn’t realize how many boards there are...

 

Conversations with God

Hello God, it’s me, Mara: You know, Lord, it’s a glorious bright sunny morning that dawned a few hours ago. We just heard about a ‘test’ so let’s see how the Sunshine Test works? It probably ‘works’ best after a bit of rain for then...

Working and playing in the forest

The forest behind our second house in Ekalaka was a source of great enjoyment to me. I spent a lot of time in it either alone or with others. We called this forest the short pine hills and the forest further south and east we called the long pine hil...

Montana Tales and Trails

Montana's rivers are running high, wide and muddy right now and things typically won't improve much for maybe two months. That all depends on rainfall and snowmelt. A cool, wet spring will prolong...

As you read this memories article, you will discover that it is a little different from past articles. When reading through some Shifting Scenes, I became interested about the Mumedy family from an article written by Leona Mumedy Miller who begins...

It wasn’t too long ago that Brice spotted a robin sitting in our apple tree. It wasn’t much longer before he saw another. Where are the chickadees that used to come before the robins? Maybe they will be coming soon. Robins are nice. They make...

Hello, We have cows. We have some good cows. We have some bad cows. Everyone that has cows has some good cows and some bad cows. Everyone wishes they had all good cows. Many ranchers strive to improve their herds to have not only all good cows, but a...

Hello God, it’s me, Mara: You know, Lord, grass is turning green in our corner of the earth again. It’s been said that grass is the least pretentious of this world’s everyday plants and the most important to mankind. The young blades are simpli...

Herding sheep

My sheep herding experiences started at a young age. At probably age 9, I went out to my Grandparent Coons ranch on Boxelder near Belltower and stayed there all summer. I worked and they paid me something though not too much. This lasted through age...

In 1789, Benjamin Franklin wrote his famous quote, saying the only things true in life were death and taxes. If you were alive on Monday, April 15, 2019, your taxes were due. When we lived in Billings, I did our taxes one year and decided we were due...

Hello, We haven’t had it too bad. In fact, since we started calving, it’s been exceptionally nice. If you remember last year, April was a cold son of a gun. We were checking cows at night and grabbing any new ones and keeping them in the tack...

 

Conversations with God

Hello God, it’s me, Mara: You know, Lord, reading 1 Corinthians 15: 13, 14, 20 (TLB) might just help us to understand that You, Lord, are the Lamb of God as it says: “For if there is no resurrection of the dead, then Christ must still be dead....

Coyote hunting

As I was growing up in and around Ekalaka, coyotes were public enemy number one. Everyone killed them on sight. It was generally believed (and I believe it) that they were a terrible predator of lambs and even calves sometimes. They were shot on...

Several years ago, an old man, who I really didn't know, died and his wife gave me a grocery bag full of his fly-tying material. And for a long time, it sat untouched in the corner of my office. Over...

Hello, This past week was a harbinger of spring. Big word I know, but needed here. We had warm, breezy days. We had a night thundershower that woke me in the night and freshened the air up. I swear it made the grass start to green up in a matter of...

 

Conversations with God

Hello God, it’s me, Mara: You know, Lord, comfort and safety, that’s our motto. It’s so easy to hide our heads in the sand, pretending there are no problems. We’re like everyone else, aren’t we, Lord, wanting to wash our hands of the whole...
