Was reading the Reader paper about the old mill in Pickwick, Minn., about 15 miles from Winona. When I drive through Rushford I always remember what my grandpa told me, how he would leave Harmony with a big wagon load of grain and drive to the mill down in Rushford and have the load of grain ground into flour to take back home. With his horses and wagon load he would be gone from seven to ten days. He always had medicine along in case a rattlesnake would bite one of the horses on the way. All I can think of is how precious that flour was when grandma baked bread. Arent we lucky to run down to the grocery store and get all the flour we want.

Chuckles

A man went to a lumber yard and said, I want some two by twice. The salesman looked puzzled for a moment then, Oh, you mean two by fours. How long do you want them? For a long time, the man replied. Im building a house.

Tourist: Have you lived here all your life?

Local farmer: Dont know - I havent died yet.

Some people think church is like a political convention. They send delegates.

. . . . .

We cant all be heroes. Somebody has to set on the curb and clap as they go by.

. . . . .

Life is depressing. We once tried counting our blessings and had to take off only one mitten.

. . . . .

Some people have short-sighted vision - it doesnt focus beyond themselves.

Weddings
Modern weddings sure
have changed
With womens lib and
its effects.
But though the bride writes
in new rules,
Dear, old Dad still writes
the checks.

Hmmm?

~ Why is the third hand on the watch called the second hand?

~ If a word is misspelled in the dictionary, how would we ever know?

~ Why do slow down and slow up mean the same thing?

~ Why do tug boats push their barges?

~ Why do we sing Take me out to the ball game, when were already there?

~ Why is it called after dark when it really is after light?

~ Why doesnt glue stick to the inside of the bottle?

The American Dream
Yesterday, I walked across a rolling field
Once battled scared and torn
Imagined I could hear the voices of soldiers
Their faces tired and worn
What did they feel, th .....

Annabelle Kvam What are some of your fondest memories? I have so many, living on a farm was the best teacher or friend one could ask for. One memory was getting up early, putting on rubbers, and hiking out to the cow pasture and bringing in the cows .....
