Rail Service

Remembering rail services from the past. Remember some of the elementary classes in the Glasgow school used to get to take a train trip to Malta, which for many students would be their first train trip in their lives. I do not remember how they...

 

Holiday Cooking

Sweet potatoes have always been on the menu for Thanksgiving and Christmas, and what a shock to look for canned Sweet Potatoes, find a can on the shelf, only to find a can of CUT YAMS, read the ingredients, which are listed as SWEET POTATOES in...

 

Dress Codes

Remembering dress codes of the past. Remember when you as a female, could not wear pants to school. You may remember the indignity of having to wear long pants under your dress as you walked to school on days like some of our recent ones. And you...

 

Toy Caps

I saw in item on Facebook the other day that featured a roll of “caps,” wondering if anyone remembered what they were. Of course, most of us would remember, as most of my generation had a cap gun at one time or another. Now to get a little...

 

Traveling

When you are traveling some of our highways like from Glasgow to Opheim, Nashua, or Malta, do you ever think of the old road that took you to those places? If you are observant you can often distinguish the old road bed. You can still travel a good...

 

Rules

Do you remember when you took a bath once a week, and maybe in a tin wash tub? What about how often did you wash your hair? Or do you remember wearing curlers or pin curls to school? I must admit that I do not remember ever going to school with...

 

Packing Coffee

If you or your family has had the opportunity to pack a meal for a branding crew or other livestock gatherings, you may remember the days that coffee was not made and packed to the site in thermos bottles, rather the coffee was most often made over...

 

School Houses

Do you remember the days of one, or maybe two room school houses? My memories are of the Tampico School, which began with no running water nor indoor plumbing. Of course, our rural area can bring to mind many one or maybe two room schools. Since my...

 

Seeing Bales

This is not a remember, rather a shout out to my friends and neighbors. It is so heart warming for me to drive down some of our rural roads, or west on Highway #2 and see fields of round bales wrapped with Flag design net wrap. If you have not been...

 

Fair Fireworks

I am sorry readers, but I do have a couple more memories that sit in my brain. Did there use to be firework displays for evening entertainment one night of the Fair? Maybe I am just remembering fire works held at the Fair Grounds for the 4th of...

 

Showing At The Fair

As promised, more Fair memories. It was heart breaking to see the lack of exhibits this year. When Homemaker Clubs were active in this area there were a lot of baking, canning, sewing, etc. exhibits. I do remember, back in the day, that many times...

 

Fair Memories

Remember the days when you went to the night show at the NE MT Fair with a jacket and maybe a blanket. That definitely was not the case this year. Maybe you remember when they held the Fair in Sept. I think about 4-H and FFA exhibitors and wondered...

 

NE MT Fair

Another year for the NE MT Fair. There are so many things involved in this annual event. Those that are involved in 4-H, FFA, and maybe Open Class have been busy for a long time preparing for the week of the fair. We immediately think of the feeding...

Downtown Glasgow Fire

Remembering a major fire in downtown Glasgow maybe about 1952. I was just an elementary student in the North side school in Glasgow. I do remember the disaster, down to the fire hoses in the street while the fire was being fought. I am sure that...

Weddings

As promised, memories of June weddings or mostly any wedding of the past. Do you remember when every bride to be made a trip to the store to select a china, crystal and silverware pattern of her choice? I may not remember correctly but it seems to...

Graduation Seating Passes

First let me apologize to my readers. Too many things going on at one time. June is the month for graduations and weddings. I will start with graduation memories of my era. My senior year begin with a move from Opheim H.S to GHS. I had chosen to find...

Hauling Water

There are some of us that remember the days of hauling water, not just for drinking but for all household necessities. You learned early to conserve that commodity. Needless to say, you didn’t use an automatic washing machine or dishwasher, nor...

Watching Trains

Remember watching the trains traveling along the railroad track and always ending with a red caboose?I think that the caboose was used to house the crew or part of the crew anyway. I think this may have been a safety requirement but like so many...

 

Butchering And Processing

No, I did not retire completely—just semi. Actually I was not aware of a change to the Courier e-mail. When my items did not get published I just assumed they had enough news with the Covid, politics, sports, etc. that they did not need any...
