Marsha,So sorry to hear of your husbands Parkinson’s. It is equally as hard for you as him to deal with this. You are so right, we yesterday to help us get through each day.Gary
The continuing, HIgh + and very low- temps, are hard on the animals.
They need water and shelter from the wild winds.
I hope you and Bernadette’s pain from losing Princess is easing.
I am sure you have heard or read the research says, pets keep us
I enjoy quoting,
Readers Digest magazine once shared, the difference between 3
A CAT will look down on you.
A DoG looks up to you.
A Pig will treat you as equal.
Our good friend Art Seim often quoted, “The outside of a horse, is
good for the inside of a man.”
Another saying about the word, doG,
spelled back words is the word, God.
They give their love and forgiveness unconditionally.
Give my regards to Bernadette.

I was tickled when Janice Workman mentioned the skating rink and warming shed in Dunseith. I grew up on ice skates in that rink, and never could get warm in that warming shed. I always wondered (as a 4 year old) why that little heater couldn’t warm us all up. After leaving North Dakota I’ve never lived in a state that had cold enough winters to support ice skating; I miss it so much!! It was my favorite sport. I’ve taken up roller blading, which, when done in the dark on a cold December evening on a brand new Walmart parking lot, felt just like having my own private skating rink for 3 whole days. It was awesome. Thank you, Janice, for bringing back those memories!

With all the interest in the Dunseith memories, wouldn’t it be fun to somehow compile these memories into a a book complete with pictures. I am really good with suggestions but not very good with action so MAYBE someone might be interested in this. Just an idea. I think that this might be something people would be willing to pay for.

Our family fondly remembers the Iversons. I am sorry to hear that Archie passed. Greg and Archie caught a lot frogs and snakes at the creek. We kids got together after supper on summer nights to play hide and seek and to throw a ball over our garage. I don’t know what the game was, but we’d call ”anti I over” (sp?) and ”pigs tails.” When you left town you kindly gave me your scrapbook of movie stars that I treasured for years. I for one would love to hear you go on and on.
PS Thanks Rod and all for sharing your memories of Hazel Hiatt. She left quite an impression on me with her unpretentious determination. Does anyone remember anything about the man who spoke with a pipe in his throat? (I can remember faces, but am a complete dolt with names) Also, I remember going to the “airport” outside Dunseith when Charlton Heston came to give a speech at the Peace Garden. Does anyone else remember this or am I dreaming? Please, keep writing…everyone.
