Gary remember basic training? It cost us a buck a haircut there as well.
Don, How well I remember those dollar hair cuts, weekly, in basic training.
I miss quoted the Manicure and Pedicure prices, here in the PI, yesterday. The total price is $2.00 for both, not $4.00. Gary

No, Arv’s family was Thorsbakken in Norway, it was changed to Bakken (means hill) at Ellis Is.
they homesteaded in the Minot area, no relations to the Bakken’s mentioned, and not related to the Bakken Oil discovery either. Ardys Bakken Horner

Just letting you all know, Im keeping an eye on the weather for North Dakota. I remember the flooding in the Red River Valley back in 1989. Infact, Augie was one of the volunteers that year and it was a real mess. So, all that are in that area, please stay safe.

Gary and Friends,

Larry’s mention of geese heading north does sound good after the record
winter we have had here. I’m hoping the lakes and ponds will fill back
up to normal as we had a very dry summer in ’08. I’m attaching a picture
from the early days, circa 1910, from this area. The man on the left is
from Bottineau, his name is McIntosh. The other man is not identified.
With these guys out there, maybe not many geese made it back south!
Limits were however many you could shoot, it would appear! Thanks Gary!
