Once-in-a-lifetime experience at the Gulf of Mexico


Gale Kaas (left) with her friend since 1970 Linda Bjugstad O’Keefe from Van Alstyne, Texas discovered a stranded manatee in a bay connected to the Gulf of Mexico while on their morning sunrise walk at Naples, Fla. When the tide rose, the manatee found its baby and swam off.
I don’t usually write too much about vacations, but this year was surely something special.

There’s an app for that

Despite my many misgivings, I have been pulled into the world of smartphones, albeit dragging my feet accompanied by much harrumphing.

Heartland Trail, busy artery for outdoor activities

I’ve become a bit of a trail junkie, and an idiot. Luckily, I have a dog with an uncanny ability of getting me unlost.

Making, saving memories


This is my mom's 2014 memory board that I made, I also took the sheets and made a booklet for by her favorite chair. I add to it almost weekly, monthly for sure. Her short-term memory loss makes her feel very lonely as she does not remember visitors. A little review makes her smile and feel remembered. My mom is going to be 86 this month.
This past week, I said goodbye to summer while packing away all my items from the cabin.

I am truly blessed

It was five years ago Oct. 9 that I went from just another mom to “that poor mom whose son has cancer,” followed by “that poor mom whose son has terminal cancer,” followed by “that poor mom whose son died of cancer.”

Cooler weather brings fall activities

Football, bonfires, hayrides and rummage sales? Yes most of these are favorite events, but getting prepared for a garage sale wasn’t on the top of my prefer-to-do list.

A lot of folks have asked me about the Miller Fox Farm so that will be this week’s history lesson.

Frazee High School’s Homecoming 2014 ... seeing green

(From left) Tony Christensen, Jimmy Johnson with VFW flag, Tim Lepisto, Beth (Lepisto) Belflower with AmVets flag, and Darby Nundahl. The crowd sang along to the beloved song and then cheered as the vets marched off the field. Post 7702 also marched during the Homecoming parade earlier in the afternoon. Cally Nundahl photo
Pumped up pride and silly costumes started out the Homecoming week and it ended in sweet victory and seeing green.
