  • Sharpening Knifes

    Gwen Cornwell, For the Courier|Jun 7, 2023

    With all of the smoke filled skies we had in the past month I thought Burma Shave #2 appropriate. Chaperone your cigarettes, they shouldn't go out alone! On to other memories. Be careful what you wish for. At one point in my younger life I wished for an exercise bike. My husband happily purchased one for me at an auction that he attended. Needless to say, it was not what I had in my mind, but I was told I could sharpen my knives while I exercised. Many of our parents and grandparents used this...

  • There's Always More To Be Done

    Mary Honrud, For the Courier|Jun 7, 2023

    A lot more has been accomplished up here beyond the Middle of Nowhere, but the end is nowhere in sight. I repeat: there’s always more to be done, especially weeding and mowing. No complaining about the rain is to be tolerated, however. It’s wonderful to see the country so green. It does make for more work, but it’s work I enjoy. We took a half-day off to attend the Memorial Day program in Opheim. Upon our return home, he went back to seeding wheat, while I mowed the lawn. Then I thinned more catmint and tiger lilies. A lot of rhubarb was pulle...

The Tampico section in particular saw rapid overnight rise, going from 2,000 to 5,000 CFS (cubic feet p...
