Hoeing and weeding the summer garden is done, and now, we’re in the fall throes of “clicking in the kitchen.” Lids are popping, telling us that the produce we’ve put inside those wide-mouth jars has sealed, is preserved and waiting for our winter-time tables.
One of my childhood notions was that people married 50 years were really, really old.
I’ve put that misconception behind me because I know couples married 70-some years, such as Rudolph and Katherine Walz, East Grand Forks, and Al and Irene Lindemoen, Grand Forks. They are in their 90s and still so young at heart.
One of my dreams is coming true! The Gaithers are coming to town.
We don’t have to go to Fargo or Winnipeg. Both those trips were well worth it, but this time, we simply have to drive out to The Ralph on Arena Drive. You don’t know how long I’ve waited for this.
Last Saturday morning, the Rev. Deb Hanson received an e-mail from Curt Haugen. “Hauling gas for the generator,” it began. “No power at the church. We got the generator started before any water got on the floor. We can’t get to the church this morning to check as there is ice backed up along the Snake River, and we can’t get across with a boat anywhere. We won’t be able to have church for at least a couple of weeks.”

The white roses in their burgundy vase that I received from my husband for Valentine’s Day are as lovely as ever on our dining room table. I walk past them 100 times a day, but how often have I stopped to smell them?
Not very often! I guess I’m one-half of a pretty typical couple.
Watching an African church service on DVD in Leona Troftgruben’s Grand Forks home, I wanted to dance with the worshipping Cameroonians. I wanted to beat their drums and sing their songs in their language.
The last time Michael W. Smith played the Alerus Center was in December 2004. For the first half of that concert, my husband and I sat on risers a good distance from the stage. On Sunday night, we’ll see this great Christian musician/singer from a different vantage point -- and we'll be accompanied by a very special duo.
