Vergas events always bring in new ways to have fun


Jody Marquardt loaded a cannon with gunpowder during the parade as others warned the crowd to cover their ears. When the Third Minnesota Light Artillery of Vergas and Lake Country Mountaineers Black Powder Club of Perham lit the fuse and the cannon fired, it shook Main Street.
I have not attended a parade for several years. During the festivals, I work all Friday and Saturday and usually have Sunday off to recuperate.

The dangers of shopping online


The surprise "Christmas" robe!
This is just too funny not to share. 
 
I was looking online for a lightweight robe to wear in the mornings while I sip my coffee at the lake.

Waste not, want not

I heard my mother say “Waste not, want not” a hundred times when I was a child, however I never really thought too much about it until I started my own family.

Smiling feels like a weird response during a time of loss

There is a guy I know and he is a molder of men and women, quick with the wit and even quicker to reach out a hand. If all of his accomplishments in life and at work were put into a pile they would reach up to heaven – where he is now.

The summer is flying by and I can feel the cool breeze of autumn in the evening air. I am determined to savor every ounce of summer we have left.
