It was a pleasant surprise when Marlyn Atkinson, son of my schoolmate Veryl Pare, called and said he would like to meet me at the Historium. My daughter Kris brought me in, and I enjoyed visiting with him. He and my son Marlyn are about the same age, and so were Veryl and I. We graduated from...

They come up through the cold soil and bring us a bouquet...
We have had some sunny days and a little rain. Not enough yet to start the creeks running. The wind has been bad a few days. No time for burning. Paul took a load of cedar logs to the cedar mill and had to wait in line to get unloaded. We went to West Plains one evening to get some parts for the...
