As this year comes to an end we want to say thanks to all of our faithful visitor’s. It has been a pleasure creating this website. We are pleased with the phenomenal growth that we have experienced Our lives are filled with memories from the past, some come from what we have done but many come from others. I have chosen the Norman Rockwell print and the following poem just because of the memories that run through my mind at this time of the year. The Rockwell print was made in 1956, the lad in the print was about the same age as myself. The poem is an old written poem in the late 1800’s by Eugene Fields. It is special to me for the simple reason was I had an uncle that could recite this poem word for word. We knew that after Thanksgiving dinner with a little prompting he would honor us with this poem. It was a sure sign that Christmas was almost here.
Jest 'fore Christmas by Eugene Field
Father calls me William, sister calls me Will,
Love to chawnk green apples an' go swimmin' in the
Got a yeller dog named Sport, sick him on the cat;
Gran'ma says she hopes that when I git to be a man,
And then old Sport he hangs around, so solemn-like an'
For Christmas, with its lots an' lots of candies, cakes, an'
Say "Yessum" to the ladies, and "Yessur" to the men,
We know that we face some colder weather ahead as we enter into the new year. We wanted to provide you with articles that will help you through the cold weather.
Some humor to start the month off right.Fishing
A man was stopped by a game warden in Northern Minnesota recently with two buckets of fish leaving a lake well known for its fishing. The game warden asked the man, "Do you have a license to catch those fish?"
The man replied to the game warden, "No, sir. These are my pet fish."
"Pet fish?!" the warden replied.
"Yes, sir. Every night I take these fish down to the lake and let them swim around for a while. I whistle and they jump back into their buckets, and I take em home."
"That's a bunch of hooey! Fish can't do that!"
The man looked at the game warden for a moment, and then said, "Here, I'll show you. It really works."
"O.K. I've GOT to see this!" the game warden replied.
The man poured the fish in to the water and stood and waited. After several minutes, the game warden turned to the man and said, "Well?"
"Well, what?" the man asked.
"When are you going to call them back?" the game warden prompted.
"Call who back?" the man asked.
"What fish?" the man asked.
