Norm,

I just love it when you guys make fun of the 'Big Guy' :D :D :D

Now as far as embellishing the facts about Iowa,  Whitepe gave me a tape by that Haywood Banks feller.  He sings a little tune describing his tour of Iowa that pretty much says it all----------corn, corn, corn,corn--------what's that smell?-----corn,corn,corn----etc.  

About the only thing I can think of that he missed was --------wind,wind,wind ::)
milking and logging and sawing and milking

Actually he missed beans, beans, beans.

Now don't get me in trouble with the 'Big Guy', I was only trying to help answer Marks question. I figured since Jeff was just in that part of our state not long ago he might remember.

Mark,

those things aren't grown here much.  I think they are pretty much the same except I think corn makes tolerable stove fuel while cottonwood is pretty much just a weed.

Linda,

Sorry to hear about your Mom's spinal problems.   :(
I will keep your Mom and your family in my prayers.
This reminds me that each and everyone of us
needs to thank the almighty every day for the health
that we have.  Everyone of us will have to deal
with medical problems some day.  It has always helped
me to remember that the Lord never gives us more than
we can bear.    

As for Jeff,  
I sure wish his posts on this topic were a little bit
more CHARMIN.      ;D ;D

That is one of the greatest comforts in life.  Especially when we know that there are lots of caring people praying to a God who cares about us all.

Thanks everyone!

By the way, I put a bow on Mom's new handrail to make it a little fancy for Christmas.  We had Mom out with the rest of my extended family today to celebrate Christmas at the sawmill.

Mom was quite surprised to see her present.  It gave her more stability going up the steps and she was much more comfortable knowing she had one extra guide.  Her right arm and hand have regained quite a bit of strength, but her fingers still don't move very well.  She has to use the rail with her fingers fully extended, but it still seemed to work well.  :)

Merry Christmas everyone!

Linda

I wish someone would put one of those handrails on the bathtub for me. I have a hard time getting out of the tub so I rarely take a bath (we do have a shower that use occasionally  ;) ). Guess I'll have to make a stop at the Cenex station and see if I can find a handrail. :D

Glad your mom likes the handle Linda.

Al, just curious but does Norway have a Cenex station? every town in ND bigger than 19 people has a Cenex station so I figgered a place like Iowa must have them too.



We always knew it as "Break Point" so Al had to wait to answer until he drove to town.  Then he drove to town and forgot to look!   ::)   I called for him...Yes, our little town has a Cenex, but the girl working didn't even know (she had to ask the boss).  :D
