The Crow's Nest

What a beautiful morning to walk!!! I know I write so often about my morning walks but I just seem to have the need to share them with everyone. It is still dark at 6:15 am, but being a part of a village starting the day plus the smells of harvest compensate for the lack of morning light. Humidity hung heavy in the air this morning. Looking west out on #9, clouds of low mist seemed to be dancing on the hills by Bud and Lynette Langeruds farm home. Jackson Hall passed me in a yellow school bus. He will drive a route until he goes back to Concordia next week. There is lots of activity around town every morning.

This past Tuesday Sandy and Frances Forbes of Dundee, Scotland were here. Sandy came to present a plaque representing the coat of arms of Dundee to the Dundee Township. Approximately 20 people attended the presentation at the Dundee Township Hall (it previously was a school house). A meal was served at noon in the Edinburg Community Center. Everyone was invited to attend. Bernice Flanagan and Leah Skjerven planned the occasion with the help of June Ellingson and Rosemarie Myrdal. The noon meal along with the visiting made for a great time.

A new era in education has begun with the combining of the Edinburg and Valley school systems. School started yesterday with the high school students coming to Edinburg. The grade and junior classes are split between Hoople and Crystal. Edinburg School held an open house last Tuesday night. Wow, every room and hallway just sparkled with newness! I really was impressed with the new lab science room. There are pictures throughout the website of the improvements made.

Grain harvest is on the downward side, but there are beans, potatoes, beets and other crops still to get off the ground before winter.

We had a group of bikers from Grafton and Fordville in town last night. They had parked their customized bikes on Main Street. There were some really gorgeous bikes to include a couple of very nice Harleys.

A couple of weeks ago Loretta Monson went in for an angiogram. She ended up having stents inserted. She was going to have a hip replaced but has to wait 3 months for that. She says she feels like a new person after the stents were put in. Now if she could just get that hip done Loretta could be “swinging” from the rafters!

Our sympathy goes to the family of Alvina Nygard. Alvina passed away this week. The funeral is tomorrow at Grace Free Lutheran Church. We will talk later.
