The Crow's Nest

Leaves are turning color in the coulees and shelterbelts. The smell of autumn is in the air---only trouble is it is 90 degrees outside with lots and lots of wind. We have only had 4 days of temperatures in the 90’s. Two of those days have been in September. Talk about this being a “funny” summer.

Edinburg is in “high gear” with harvest. Long lines of trucks sit at the elevator ready to be weighed and unloaded. I visited with Steve Langerud and he said the wheat crop really looks good. That is so nice to hear. Hall’s are busy hauling in truckloads of red, red potatoes. They sure look beautiful. There is nothing better than new potatoes. Harvest time is truly a wonderful time of the year.

Deer season has begun. Big congratulations to Colton Evenson. He just got his first deer. What a thrill it must be for him!

O yes, we have a newly formed group in Edinburg. They call themselves the “Classy Divas”. They are part of the National “Red Hat Society”. I know the Red Hat ladies always seem to have a good time. I hope to get a picture of them the next time they get dressed up for an event. I will post it on the website.

I AM SO ENVIOUS. Rosemary Denault and Marianne Windingland leave Wednesday for Germany. They will visit Rosie’s daughter, Alica and her husband in Kaiserslautern. What a perfect time of the year to go. This is grape harvest time in that area of Germany so I know there will be festivals all the time to attend. I understand they also will visit Oktoberfest in Munich. What fun that will be. Not only do I ask you to have a schnitzel for me, but at a wine fest have a glass of wine and a piece of zweiblekuchen (onion cake) for me also.

Vera Brandvold and her sister Verna, also are flying across the pond for sightseeing. They are going to England, Scotland and France. Edinburgh, Scotland is my most favorite city in the world so I will really be thinking about them while they are enjoying themselves.

I need not complain. Today is our 40th Wedding Anniversary. It has been 40 wonderful years of much happiness and adventure. The only complaint is that time has just flown by. Seems just yesterday that Ruthie was my bridesmaid all dressed in orange with a headpiece of silk covered cardboard. Pretty fancy!!!

I will write again later. Have a wonderful day.
