  • Cow Chips

    Gwen Cornwell, For the Courier|Jul 5, 2023

    If you were not a “country kid” you may not have any memories of the following, however I think that several of us can remember getting to head outside to the pasture on Mom’s baking day to collect “cow chips.” This was not a real unpleasant job if it was one that you had done in the past. The trick of course was to be sure that these were dry ones that you were picking up. My husband shared that he and his sister got to go looking for cottonwood bark. Coming from the North Country, I do know that cow chips were no doubt more plentiful...

  • Back To Work

    Mary Honrud, For the Courier|Jul 5, 2023

    I’m sure not many noticed the lack of a Green Spaces column the past two weeks. If you are one who did, you could blame my sisters (with their husbands in tow) for coming from southeastern Missouri to see us. The first few days here were spent getting reacquainted with northeastern Montana. These two sisters also attended school here in Opheim way back when. They much prefer the dryer atmosphere here over the mugginess of a Missouri summer. We attended the Fort Peck Theatre production of Murder on the Orient Express, and then had ribs at E...
