Notes from a country kitchen


Fri, May 30th, 2003
Posted in Columnists

Today as I write my column it is May 24. I always write a week ahead, then send it through the mail so you can read it on Monday. Today, May 24, is special as it was my parents wedding day and they were married in 1917. My mother always said it was a warm month that year and she had apple blossoms in her bouquet. She made her wedding dress and they were married at 11:00 a.m. at the Big Spring Church. They then came back to her parents farm and had a sit-down dinner for everybody. In the evening they had a dance in the barn, she never said who played, but it might of been only one person who played the fiddle. The next morning my dads cousin took them to Harmony and they took the train to La Crosse for their honeymoon. Mother always told how all her aunts came for three days, got all the food ready, and everybody came with tables and chairs. Those were the good ol days, when it didnt cost an arm and a leg to get married.

While she was doing a crossword puzzle, a woman asked her husband the word for a female sheep. He said ewe. Hell be out of the hospital on Monday.

True contentment is not in having everything . . . but in being satisfied with everything you have.

One used his talents to rest. They buried him after he had finished sleeping. One used his talents to work. They buried him after he had finished living.

Lets go modern

Wash on Monday - no, not now!automatic, take a bow.

Iron on Tuesday - wash and wear solves that problem of clothes care.

Mend on Wednesday - seldom done, something new is much more fun.

Churn on Thursday - no, sirree!buying butter works, you see.

Clean on Friday - if you can,now and thens the modern plan.

Rest on Sunday - that one's still far the easiest to fulfill.

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was a time of light, it was a time of darkness when Sam entered upon the scene. He was a young dog less than a year old when he came from nowhere to make his home with us. When I took him to the .....

Township Roads: It's Eleanor's Fault

Fri, May 30th, 2003

Sheep grazed the lawn of the White House until well into the FDR administration. I suspect it was Eleanor who decided that it was time to get rid of the livestock. That set a bad precedent for lawns and the mowing that inevitably followed. If sheep s .....

Last night when I was driving home from my graduation party, alone in the dark, I could only see a few hundred feet in front of my car. I couldnt see the turns up ahead, or the hill I have to climb, or the deer, or the large crack in the road. I the .....
