Busy motels and restaurants must be good for the economy. And we saw plenty of bustling restaurants and motels during the past week traveling around North Dakota, headquartering in Bismarck. It seems as though people are vacationing close to home. And there must be a ripple effect from the 69th annual Sturgis Bike Rally that is running this week in the Black Hills of South Dakota.
I wish you could have been with us in Bismarck as we celebrated Jack’s graduation from Century High School. It was a joyous event. And, of course I drove across North Dakota thinking of him as a little boy. He was our first grandchild. He was quite a rascal. He used to like it when I took him up to the Grand Forks Herald to see Jeff Tiedeman. He knew Tiede would always have some candy at his desk.
The Red River has settled down for the time being, and we are heading into Easter weekend in the Red River Valley. I guess we will worry about a second crest in another week or so. I think the Easter Bunny may have to get around on water skis this year. And I hope those rabbits that were cavorting around your place at Tucson Estates when I was down there in March will bring some Easter eggs to you.
Something tells me I should have stayed in Arizona for a while. Things aren’t going too well around here this week. Along with the threat of flooding in the Red River Valley, we have had more snow to shovel. We have basements to check. Sandbags to pile.
Hazel Churchill wasn’t the most stylish or talented woman in Pierre, S.D., when we were growing up. Many people probably didn’t know who she was.
But I have never forgotten her. She was my Girl Scout leader.
