Hello, Another beautiful Monday morning! Rain would make it look a heck of a lot better, but remember this, we are one day closer to rain than we were yes- terday! I don't know what kind of weekend you had, but mine was full. First on Friday I got Shirley lined out cutting hay. Then I drove across the state to Fessenden to announce a bull riding. Wells County has, what I consider, the greatest county fair ground in the state. It is like stepping back in time. Beautiful old covered grandstand. Old wood horse barns. A brick Festival Hall for the dances. No kidding, they could have filmed the movie 'Sea Biscuit' there. On Saturday, I called Shirley early to get her out to the hay field, and then I attended the funeral of a dear 'old friend at McIntosh. Rose was a grand lady who cared for her friends and neighbors for eighty-eight years. Just thinking of her this morn- ing brings a smile to my face. On Sunday, I called Shirley to get her out to the hay field. I had to announce a rodeo in Blaisdell. It was the fiftieth annual rodeo Hat Tips by Dean Meyer ) for the grand little town of Blaisdell. My Dad, Darrel, and Ray Lindberg led the Grand Entry. They are the last two living members of the original group that started the rodeo. Now on Monday, I can't get Shirley to go to the hay field! She says I have had three days off and she thinks I should go cut hay. I told her it was a little wet yet. She insists that when it is dry enoiagh on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, it must be dry enough on Monday. She doesn't understand hay. " You know we have one of the big superstores near here. Now, honestly, I have never been in the store. I may some day. But so far I have avoided it. But Travis says he was in there the other day with his wife. In the vast expanse of the store, he and his wife became separated. He walked up and down aisle after aisle. He searched in the grocery section, the hardware section, and the clothing section. She was nowhere to be found. As he neared the center of theJstore, he met another fellow looking around with a bewil- dered look on his face. Travis, in need of a breather anyway, stopped to visit. In visiting he found the guy was lookifig for his own wife. They decided to help each other search. The guy asked Travis to describe his wife. Travis said she was about 5' 7". A hundred pOunds. Long blonde hair wear- ing a cute hat. She had a gor- geous figure, was wearing a tight white sweater, and a mini-skirt. Travis asked the guy what his wife looked like. The guy thought a minute, and says, 'the heck with my wife, let's just 10ok for yours!' Later, I think I better head for the hay field before I have to look for my wife! Dean
