MARILYN HAGERTY: Game of week: Hunting up jackets and gloves
Dear Shirley, You folks down in Arizona probably don't understand this ... but around here it is time to dig out the mittens and gloves. You need your jacket, and a scarf is handy. It happens every year. The beet trucks are running and one tipped...
You folks down in Arizona probably don’t understand this … but around here it is time to dig out the mittens and gloves. You need your jacket, and a scarf is handy.
It happens every year.
The beet trucks are running and one tipped over near Crookston the other night.
This is homecoming week at the University of North Dakota. Things are really humming out there. And friends are gathering tonight at the Guest House downtown to say farewell to Rob Horken and Terry Dullum. They are both leaving the local television station.
Horken has also played the role of Ernie the Angler. I always fancied sitting out on a dock with him. He often reminded folks to take a kid fishing.
Do you remember Fabrice Moussas? He came here in 1971 from France to attend UND when our three musketeers were in high school. He used to come to our house occasionally for dinner.
Well, he went on to have a worldwide career as a reporter and camera man for ABC. He is back in Grand Forks this week from his home in Paris. He is speaking at 3:15 p.m. today in the UND Education Building at an event that is free and open to the public. There will be a reception afterwards.
I hope to make it out there, Shirley. And on Friday, Fabrice will be among those honored at the Al Austin Awards ceremony and dessert reception at the J. Lloyd Stone Center. That used to be the Alumni Center before they moved into the Gorecki Alumni Center.
So much is happening that it makes your head spin. The Sioux Award banquet tonight at the Alerus Center will be a big event.
Love from your sister, Marilyn, watching the golden leaves flutter down as the Red River flows north.
P.S. This week friends and family said farewell to Jeanne O’Keefe. We were neighbors for years while the O’Keefes lived on Robertson Court. There are good memories. She had a good, long life. But it never is easy to say goodbye. And many friends are grieving over the death of District Judge Karen Braaten. She kept her composure and battled cancer down to the very end.
