Ain't life a wonderful merry-go-round!
December 7, 2019
Of all the characters and rascals that I have dealt with in my lifetime, none can beat the beggars who have hit on me at Christmas and graduation.
Once, I had a daughter-in-law, a wonderful gal, who got upset when I wrote in this space that some scoundrel from Thief River Falls, whom I'd never heard of, had sent me a graduation announcement.
It was her nephew.
"Who the hell is this scamp?" I typed before starting an early morning fire in the wood stove on a cold May morning using that graduation announcement and his photo.
Actually, I did no such thing, but it made for a fun column.
