2010 Reunion


Boom Times in North Dakota

The state's unemployment rate hovers around 3 percent, and "Help Wanted" signs litter the landscape of cities such as Williston in the same way "For Sale" signs populate the streets of Las Vegas.

"It's a zoo," said Terry Ayers, who drove into town from Spokane, Wash., slept in his truck, and found a job within hours of arrival, tripling his salary. "It's crazy what's going on out here."

Why We Like 40 degree winters in Dakota?  It keeps the riffraff out.

Thank You For Freedom

This is just south of Omaha, NE. on Hwy 75 south. Farmer Chris Shottun does it with his tractor.  
He uses GPS to get the letters readable. He has done this every fall for several years now.

This is what our servicemen see when landing at Offutt Air Force Base. 
Thank you, Farmer Chris Shottun and Walmart. Very nice.

  1. The fear of long words.


From hippopotomonstrosesquipedalian, an extension of sesquipedalian with monstrum (monster) and a truncated, misspelled form of hippopotamus, intended to exaggerate the length of the word itself and the idea of the size of the words being feared; combined with phobia.
Had a pizza party Saturday, for the cousins and the family of one of my co-workers. Had gelatto and Italian ice for dessert, and a good corn relish dip for appetizers from Honeybaked Ham Co.
We played "catchphrase" and "Scene it".
