Grateful and Thankful


February 21, 2020

Dad's benefit was held this past Sunday and it was amazing! The support that was shown to my dad was unbelievable. Even his first grade teacher, Clara Johnson, came.

"Thank you" doesn't even begin to say how much this meant to the whole family.

Everyone from the bakers, local businesses and the Lions Club all outdid themselves. I'm still hearing about how light, fluffy and delicious the pancakes were.

It was a fun to see everyone and get a bit of visiting in. I also might have enjoyed a few too many of the baked goods!

Thank you just doesn't cut it, but THANK YOU to all who played a role in dad's benefit and for coming to see him!!

This Friday we will be in Grand Forks for the consultation on the radiation and chemo pill. We will find out when it starts and for how long. They Have said it will be three to five weeks.

Then it's moving on to Kyle Monday to meet with hisheart specialtist to see what is going on with him.

Joke of the Week

A blonde and a redhead have a ranch. They have just lost their bull. The women need to buy another, but only have $500. The redhead tells the blonde, "I will go to the market and see if I can find one for under that amount. If I can, I will send you a telegram." She goes to the market and finds one for $499. Having only one dollar left, she goes to the telegraph office and finds out that it costs one dollar per word. She is stumped on how to tell the blonde to bring the truck and trailer. Finally, she tells the telegraph operator to send the word "comfortable." Skeptical, the operator asks, "How will she know to come with the trailer from just that word?" The redhead replies, "She's a blonde so she reads slow: 'Come for ta bull.'"
