  6. I'm so very sorry. I didn't really know how to express this, but I'll try. I would be happy if my last action on earth was to save my daughter. I don't mean to be macabre, but there'll never be any doubt for any of those kids, no matter how many years in the future, how much their father loved them.

  12. The legend lives on from the Chippewa on down Of the big lake they called 'gitche gumee' The lake, it is said, never gives up her dead When the skies of November turn gloomy With a load of iron ore twenty-six thousand tons more Than the Edmund Fitzgerald weighed empty That good ship and crew was a bone to be chewed When the gales of November came early

American Pie...........of course...What more could you want.??...but , perhaps like Don's long time ago song.....American Pie is starting to slip right off the once great menu that was offered...across the board, so to speak.... You see...all the good cooks are gone.....banished into obscurity...by a murky bunch of ''pot burners''.....with little thought for "American Pie" Mike

  18. Daddy worked hard for his dollar He said some folks don't, but that's okay But they won't know which road to follow Because an easy street, might lead you astray Sawyer Brown The Dirt Road. Popped into my head the other day and thought of this thread. Another older one I thought of too I came from a town that was so small you look both ways and you could see it all All I wanted was some way out every evening I'd slip into town And stand around by the caution light and watch the big trucks rolling by For me it was a beautiful sight big wheels in the moonlight… Dan Seals big wheels in the moonlight.

  25. Twenty minutes after leaving his momma and litter mates he quit trying to get out of the pickup. Came over and laid on my leg. He spent the next 5 hours on the drive home right there. We were bonded. His Lion King doll, took it everywhere He liked helping chore in the corrals by carrying back empty buckets or feed sacks Although not a cow dog he liked helping move cattle. Loved lounging in the sun Always liked knowing where I was at To the end, liked laying on my leg. You were a good boy Gus March 30, 2009 to February 19, 2022 Rest in Peace Old Buddy Thank you Lord for letting me care for him. I could never repay the unconditional love he gave me.

  27. Missed our farm to the north about a mile. Watched that Evil black cloud swirling with lots of cloud to cloud lightning. Same storm took out a house and some buildings south of Tama. Then a second strong finger of the storm hit us with heavy wind and rain. No damage of any consequence. We took shelter over at my parents house. They have a storm room under the garage floor in the basement. I was praying silently as Dad and I watched from the sunroom as it approached, then we retreated back to the room with the others. South a mile or so, the skies were nearly clear. Weird. Thank you for checking in on us!

  28. It missed the farm by about 2&1/2 miles, my place in town probably about the same. We were at the local Ike's for Mom's celebration of life, it missed there by maybe a half mile. Donnie, the manager of the club and a good friend, sent us to shelter after the smokers came inside. We wound up eating supper by cell-phone light, the food was great but the weather sure put a damper on the turnout. If anyone is familiar with the 'Valley drive in', it took a hard hit. Friend of mine who's Dad lives at the top of that hill got hit pretty bad. The path seemed to be pretty narrow to me. If I get time I'll go take a picture of where it crossed one road. Hadn't heard it was an EF-4. Not sure how Aaron fared, it had to pretty close to his work. Hope he doesn't have any damage. Thanks for asking!

  34. Real sorry for your loss. I feel for you. Every since I joined RP I found out you had a Weimaraner. I followed you and Gus with your adventures. I also had a Weimaraner. So similar to my Ashes. Weims are a real smart dog and so full of love. I know you will miss him as I still miss mine. She’s been gone about a year now. Always loved the silver coloring those dogs have

  40. After my Mom died we were invited to our neighbors house for thanksgiving. This woman was a second mother to me. When it came time for desert she pulls out a “pumpkin “ pie with whipped cream. Turns out the canned pumpkin was canned squash and she didn’t notice it until it was too late😂

  45. Gary, Can you explain a little bit on those wooden grain elevators. I thought I saw somewhere they were made with all that height by just laying 2x6s on the ground and then laying another on top of them and nail into them. Although I don't know how you would put different containers to separate different grains on the inside. Looks to me like moving those elevators, first you may want to put training wheels 😀on them to move them down the road. Anyway, it looks like some of them had corregated tin nailed on the outside and maybe some didn't. I have never seen that type here in So. Texas. The earliest I know of were 1/8" flat sheet metal with top and bottom bent edges to bolt ends for standing grain tanks. Very much same as oil tanks. I see your counter check, I guess it' already been more than 4o years ago I drove to kansas to get an antique tractor and stoped in at a hwd store and a book of checks from each bank in town were on the counter. it had been years that i've seen that here, but i guess in the mid west they were still trusting. I really enjoy all your posts. I like your musical interests also. Thanks, Fred.

  47. https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2022/03/07/white-house-rejects-idea-of-boosting-domestic-oil-production-to-lower-gas-prices/ A concerted effort by the party of "progressives", and their allies (constituencies) of the MEDIA, academia, the MEDIA, environmentalist activists, the MEDIA, the Hollywoke elite, and the MEDIA to DESTROY the "pee-ons" outside of the urban areas. Remember that 'flyover country' IS the home of "bitter clingers", "deplorables", and according to the FBI, "domestic terrorists". Too bad that the oil and gas producing states don't form their own domestic version of OPEC and do a "Soup NAZI" on the urban and anti-drilling areas of the country, by saying "NO OIL FOR YOU".

  48. Oh, Matt! You strummed some of my strings in Eddies Corner and Moore, my friend! If you remember when F.L. "Scotty" Zion moved the Kolin elevator to Moore, he and his crew stopped at Eddies Corner to eat! The next farm & and the last farm they drove by with the elevator on the way to Moore was the farm Sharon grew up on. Her dad drove out into his field and took this picture of the elevator out front on the highway. Then in Moore you took the photo of the Moore water tank! Was this photographer up there and hiding when he saw you with a camera? If you look below the right elevator, is the long building with Power Mercantile on it. That's the same TC Power that Grandpa Jäger worked for, three years on the steamboats and four years freighting out of Fort Benton, the world's innermost port. The rock house. Built by Ed and Phillip Turck. Phil was a year behind me in HS and in Sharon's class. He was a crack trumpet player and went on to be a band director. Mrs. Judith Turck, his mother played her Hammond organ every summer at Old Faithful Inn when I was in high school. She was good. Phil used to invite me there for supper after school. I'd play Jude's Hammond and she'd play piano. We made a lot of music together over the years. Phil passed away a couple years ago at Belgrade, Montana where he was Band Director. This is the Moore High School Rythmaires "dance band" when I was a senior. I'm standing right, and Phil Turck is in the front row at right. Four of us are still living. Ed Turck used to run the grocery store and post office and they lived upstairs. But the "post office" was originally the State Bank of Moore. Like all banks in central Montana during the Agricultural Recession after WWI in 1919 and drought, every bank in the area folded. This area of Moore may not have looked this thriving when you were there, Matt? Roger, I think that automobile coming up the street is a Maxwell?? (MY ERROR: THIS IS THE OTHER BANK IN MOORE, THE FIRST NATIONAL. THIS IS THE BLOCK WHERE THE NEW MOORE FARMER'S OIL COMPANY FACILITY IS, MTMatt.) Ed Turck gave me a couple of these check blanks when I was going to HS at Moore. Us kids all stopped in at Turck's Grocery every morning for junk food (candy?) before school. I've always liked this photo of Clary's Oxen in yoke in front of the State Bank of Moore. I'm unable to identify Wilson's beautiful large touring Car parked beside the State Bank of Moore. Roger?? Any ideas? So Matt, thank you for lighting a fire in this old candle head of mine. Gary!😁

  49. The reason I have more guts than brains for mechanical work on accordions happened back in 1994. The Smolik Brothers of Osage, Iowa invited me upon other's suggestion they do it, to come back to the Antique Acres steam show at Cedar Falls, where their 40-140 hp Reeves engine lived at that time. They bought that engine out of Montana, not too far from where I grew up and not too far from Montana Matt's girlfriend's town. Since I was going, a friend suggested I bring my accordion. Since "baggage" was quite inexpensive in 1994, I agreed to bring it. And I had a blast at that show with it. This is that accordion. My mom and dad bought me this accordion when I was 11 years old. I could hardly see over it, but Dad got such a good deal on it, he said, "Aw... You'll grow into it!" I did! $749 retail, but he got it for half price from our good friend who sold them. This was me as a sophomore playing for a crowd at the Moore, Montana Gymnasium when I was in high school there. (It is all gone now, Matt!) This is the accordion up close as it now lives at son Mike's house. After the show at Cedar Falls, I flew back to Kalispell, Montana where we lived at nearby Whitefish lived at that time. When it came in on the baggage mover, I picked it up. The four brass half balls on the bottom of the case were shoved up through the case. So I took it out and tried it out. It was all screwed up in the bass end. I took it to the ticket counter and asked for their complaint department. I told them it had been dropped from the airplane to the ground and it had severe damage. They said, "We'll buy you a new accordion." I thanked them, and said, "However my parents bought me this when I was eleven and it has sentimental value. I want it fixed." They agreed to pay for repairs. I had a band instrument repairman coffee buddy I saw at the cafe every working morning. I talked to him about it. He said he'd worked on one other accordion. He cautioned me not to let just anyone work on it. He is the one who told me each button was different. He said, "I'm not an accordion player, so I wouldn't know if it was working okay, when finished, but if you'll agree to help me, I'll do it." So I did. We worked two different evenings on it. He made the repairs and we put it all back together. It plays like it did when new. I still love playing this accordion. Each accordion is as different to play as each woman you'd ask to dance with you would dance. Anyway, this situation is where I got the guts to work on accordions. I've worked on several now and they no longer scare me. Our youngest daughter says, "Dad is a little bit 'Rainman'!" and that helps me with the attitude to start in working on one. Gary😁
