Clever or Quirky, Wise or Weird…Hmmm

A Slice of Life Lest you think I fell off a dock and hit my head on my fishing boat, it is with complete honesty that I am about to freely reveal, in complete detail, precise facts of a very important and personal nature. I have not been coerced, am not under the influence of […]

The Old Blue Coat

A Slice of Life Several years ago, when I was still riding with Company M, U.S. Army 7th Cavalry memorial regiment, I became friends with one of the older members of the unit. We were both very interested in the frontier military, and each had a collection of artifacts and reproduction items. At one of […]

Talking Tennis Ball 

A Slice of Life I know what you are thinking, this guy must have hit his head in a foiled attempt to leap the net. There is no such thing as a talking tennis ball.   True, to my knowledge, but since you’ve already been lured in by a catchy headline and are curious about my […]

Machine Talk 

A Slice of Life I replied courteously and, realizing what I had done, looked around quickly to see if anyone was listening. There was. How embarrassing!  But wait. People within hearing distance were not staring, pointing or anything like that, just chatting. Much to my relief, nothing out of the ordinary was directed toward me. […]

What a Snarled Mess 

A Slice of Life It didn’t seem so bad with the door closed but, good grief, what a mess. A real, big time, embarrassing mess.  What kind of person could create such an embarrassment? Ah...me.  Now, dear reader, I respectfully ask that you do not rush to judgement as to my general habits in creating […]

Cold Adjustment

A Slice of Life  Weird how 0-10 degrees feels pretty good after a spell of below zero temperatures and “dangerous” wind chills. I call it a North Dakota heat wave.   A bit much perhaps, but after a cold snap of several days like what was experienced throughout the state recently, a dose of warmer weather […]

An Examination of Normal 

A Slice of Life  Well, that’s different. So different that it is normal. Huh?  When purchasing a cup of coffee a few days ago at a local convenience store, choosing what brew I would try, I found myself staring at normal as a selection. I was expecting to see Carribean sunrise, morning breakfast blend, or […]

Latest Freeze Watch for Sakakawea 

A Slice of Life  When the big water freezes is something that has captured my attention as long as I can remember. By big water, I’m talking about Lake Sakakawea, which is actually a reservoir.  Garrison Dam, Lake Sakakawea, call it what you want. By any name it is North Dakota’s largest body of water […]

A Slice of Life When one year comes to an end and the other begins, it is a natural time to reflect on the year past and to hopes for what the new year may bring. Of course, resolutions abound – lose weight, quit smoking, finally take that trip you’ve been promising yourself. There’s an […]

Bird Chatter 

A Slice of Life  Every December dedicated bird watchers conduct Christmas Bird Counts throughout the United States. Several of the counts are conducted annually in the Minot Area. The counts are part of a national effort led by the Audubon Society.  Though I have never considered myself a serious birder, I’ve been present at numerous […]
