Bill,We had some heavy rains that lasted for about an hour and the was pretty much the extent of the affects of the typhoon that recently passed throught the Philippines. We had very little wind too. We are protected from other Islands all around us. The last major Typhoon that hit Cebu was in 1990. Manila gets hammered every year with Typhoons and other major storms. We live in the banana belt.Gary
Hello Gary, friends and great responders, Mr. Nagel and Dick,
Like my dad, who was from the old school. He’d introduce older people as Mr. or Mrs. I am thinking Mrs. Olinger’s maiden name was a prominent sir name of the Turtle Mountains, Metis, highway 43_ and St. John area. I believe her first name was Josephine.
I don’t know when the Olinger’s moved to Dunseith. I believe they are buried together at St. Ann’s in Belcourt. My brother was a pallbearer for Ole and had met Ole’s family at his funeral. It was a cold, cold day. Dad didn’t go.
I have a few stories which I recall about “The Olinger’s “. They were a couple I want to remember. Dog gone it I want to write those stores down! Before I do, I have a need to research and find factual information.
I do know when Dad was losing his vision, his old friends and new friends alike treated him with respect and courtesy. And for that I am grateful.
P.S. I wonder? Do others wonder if Mr. Nagel is thinking I’ve improved on those 40 “words per minute”?
It was sure nice to see the picture of ‘ol Mel holding his new
grandson way out there in Montana. The part I found the most
interesting was how much the cute little young’un resembles his
grandpa. Same hair and–well, same hair anyway. Paybacks are
a——you know what paybacks are Mel! Thanks Gary!
