Bev Morinville’s (72)  update from sister Deb (70): 
Hi Gary,
I  just finished a short but very happy phone call with Bev!  She is doing so terrific that SHE answered the phone.  Sent me immediately into a frenzy of crying and laughing!  She will be finding out soon about radiation but she won’t have to have chemo and she is speaking so clearly.  I was so amazed.  She stills tires easily but will return to her computer soon.  In the meantime I have forwarded to her all the private emails I have received asking about her.  She wants me to tell all of you that she is so grateful for the outpouring of love, support and prayers that she has received.  It really is a miracle and an amazing answer to all those prayers.

Paulette LaCroix’s Reply –  Isaac Belgarde:
Yes, thanks, that’s him, Isaac Belgarde and I do remember him riding his horse.  I don’t know where I got the moon idea, maybe that was someone else or a myth.  Seeing him in my mind has made me wonder about the name of the slim, trim, short red haired woman who also rode horses and possibly trained them or raised them.  She was quite an impressive woman who wore a cowboy hat, boots and buckle on her jeans.  A Hiatt?  Was there a riding club?

Susan Fassett’s (65) Memories: 
I remember Isaac Belgarde,  but do any of you remember Minda Haagenson?   She lived in a little shack off the Willow Lake Road.  Mom and I went there once that I remember to visit, as the Haagenson clan were tied into our family.  The thing I remember most is that when you went into the house you had to duck down, because the ceiling was hanging low.  Minda always wore a heavy wool coat and a wool scarf folded down over her forehead no matter what time of year it was. 

The thing I remember about Johnnie Meyers, is Sparky the dog riding on top of the cab of truck or on top of the load of bails of hay as they drove down main street.,  And Sparky would be standing on all four legs as steady as could be.

I remember Saturday nights, and going downtown to watch the people.  Everything closed up at 10 PM and nothing opened up again until Monday morning.

I remember the Crystal Cafe and the juke boxes on the tables.

I remember the Snake Pit, my dad bowled there with many of the people mentioned in our memories.  I have pictures of Bing Evans, Bernice Johnson and others that I will locate and scan in.

I am on my way to Thursday Morning Bible Study.  You will all be in my thoughts throughout the day.  I hope you all have a good one.  Hugs and Prayers,   Susan

Dave Slyter’s (70) reply – Johnny Myer: 

I think everybody remembers Johnnie Myers.  ha   Just like everybody remembering Isaac Belgarde, everybody will have a good story about Johnnie Myer.   Here is one of them.

When we lived up on the farm my dad would always get a bull from Johnnie’s herd to use.    One day(eight yrs later) Johnnie was up to our house for something and my dad asked him when he would like to have his bull back.   “What bull” Johnnie asked.  Dad told him and Johnnie’s response was, ” Oh that’s where that —  —- bull went.   ha ha  We laughed hilariously for a long time after that.   ha

 From Marge Fish
   To Mary Staub
     I was happy to get a e-mail from Mary.  I always thought it was Marie.
     I have a lot of memories of you and your family.  
     I remember your mother grew rhubarb and made so many good things out of it.
     She loved lavender and had a lot of rooms in different shades of lavender.
     I think we shared a kitty that lived in your garage.
     We had a lot of good times and not many worries those days.
     The brother that sold cars ( Bill) or Marvin passed away in 1992.  My other brother,
      Howard lives in Edmonds Wash.  He was 82,2 days ago.  I went on a trip to Hawaai
     with him and his wife Betsy and my cousin Borg in Nov.  It was very good!
     Yesterday and the day before we had a old fashioned snow storm (19.5″) of snow in Horicon and blowing also.  We have had a N.D. winter.  It’s usually not like this.  2,000 cars were stranded between Madison and Chicago on Interstate 90 due to the storm.  They called out the National Guard , closed the schools and airports and even the malls.  The storm lasted so long and that was the trouble.
     Today it was sunny and warmer and the main roads were cleared.  They do a good job of clearing the roads.  I live in a small town (Horicon- population just about 4,000.)
     It was sure good to hear from you!
                                                                          Your old neighbor,
                                                                              Marge (Landsverk Fish)

When I saw your first E-Mail itsure brought back a lot of memories.  I remember
living next door to you in fact I have a cute picture of you and myself going to church at least we were dressed as if we were going to church.  I lived directly across from the school.  We left Dunseith in the summer of 1956.  I graduated from Roosevelt High  in Seattle in 1960. I remember Minnie and Knute so well. Both of my folks passed away in 1993 and my brother Archie died in 2001. My dad Adolph Iverson was in contact with one of your brothers who had a car lot in Lake city several years ago.  Its to bad about your husband. I’ve been married for 41 years and have two sons Curtis and David. 
I remember Dr Loeb in fact I have a photo album of my dad’s of a lot of people from the San.

Bill Hosmer’s (48) Reply – The Bailey’s: 
 Hi Gary and my Dunseith pals, including my brother Bob.   Gary Metcalfe,
you asked about where the Bailey’s lived when they lived in the hills.  It
was on the east side of no. 3 about two or three miles north of the golf
course.  It was a white two story house, once lived in by Ray Anderson,
who has been mentioned in earlier mailings. That house was torn down in
the past year or two, and now there are some manufactured homes in that
little draw.   The Baileys lived by the depot during part of their time in
Dunseith.  Vance mentions it in his long piece, just before he died. The
Baileys moved to Devils Lake in 1941 and then to Leeds, before they left
the state.I think I mentioned earlier that I was at Vance’s Memorial in
Tempe, AZ, and that the family will be conducting another Memorial at the
Dunseith Cemetery June 10.   By the way Gary M.  your comments about my
Dad, Jack Hosmer were fine, and they made me feel very good.  As Bob Hope
would say, “Thanks for the Memories”  to you all.  Bill Hosmer
Dick Johnson’s (68) reply to Gary Metcalfe (57): 
Gary and all,

Gary Metcalfe asked about Auggie and Harvey Johnson. Auggie
lives in Minot and is retired from the roofing business. Harvey
lived in St.John for about the last 20 years or so but he died
about two years ago. I haven’t seen Randy Kelly now for about 7
or 8 years.
