One year later

WOW! It’s hard to believe that a year has passed since the passing of the torch at Hi-Line Retirement Center. Looking back over the past year I have so much to be thankful for. Walking through the doors on October 3, 2016, I had no idea if the...

Imagine my surprise

The bird season opened on an unsettling note. With my obituary. I’d gone to bed early and missed the text message my friend David sent later that evening. But when I woke at 5 a.m. and glanced at...

 

I'm not a road warrior

Headed down the same road

They say that after a while people begin to look like their dogs. I don’t doubt it. I’m just not sure which one. I suppose it depends on the day. While I’d like to think there are some...

 

Open our wallets

Dear Editor, Hopefully we can open our wallets to help the victims of the hurricane - American Red Cross will gladly accept what ever you can spare. Too bad Trump had to do a Friday night news dump of continued poor judgment decisions, instead of...

 

I'll fish there until I can't

The bag of corn that changed me

I have a love hate relationship with corn. Yes the grain. Growing up in the suburbs around Chicago, I have seen my share of corn fields. I have been on road trips throughout the state of Illinois and...

 

Where the antelope roam…I won't be

That week that was for President Trump

Dear Editor, Wow! I was an interesting week the White House (written August 3) - also known as "chaos villa." Firings, hiring's and tweeter feed. Kind of makes you feel the right hand doesn't know what the left hand is doing. Hiring Scaramouch to be...

 

Praying for rain

Like the Weather Channel’s Jim Cantore showing up when a hurricane is imminent, I worry that I’m becoming a harbinger of drought and wildfire. My wife and I bought a place on Fort Peck Lake in...
