My Condolences are with Obert, Marlys and their families with their mother’s passing. We can not forget Bobbie Lagerquist either.
I have a lot of good childhood memories of Kenrose. She was very active with our 4-H club of which both Obert and Marlys were members of. She was always there giving a helping hand with all of our activities and other community affairs too. I remember being at community gatherings at the Medlang home numerous times. Those were definitely the good ole days. Gary

Enjoy your blogs so much and rarely miss reading them, although I remember only

some of the good ole Dunseith alumni–Makes us all feel like one big family

Which brings me to a big concern about what is happening in the Philippians at this time

Are you and family and friends OK? Was this storm anywhere near you? It sounds

devastating! My prayers are with the people in the Philippians and with you.

We hear very little about it over here, but enough to know that it is not good!

Blessings and Merry Christmas.

We were very Lucky. That storm missed us going to the south and east. Last report I saw 1060 were confirmed dead and over a 1,200 were missing. 60,000 families were displaced. The flood waters caught folks off guard in the middle of the night with waters higher than their houses. Many folks were washed out to sea. Here in Cebu we got one big down pour that lasted a short time that caused some short term flooding with no measurable damages or loss of life. Gary

Thought this was an appropriate joke of the day for your blog at this time of year. I received it curtesy of my sister, Tina.
