E.E. Hinkle Gets Checked Up
Harold and Mary Hinkle took 102 year old E.E. Hinkle to Huron on Tuesday morning for a check-up on him and his bionic heart. His pulse was a very respectable 80. It was a quick trip as Harold was in a hurry to get back home before the snow got too big for him. They were in such a hurry that they didn't go to the bread store, which put E.E. in a sour mood for the whole trip home. And instead of calling on Ken and Joyce Ferris at their home, they called them up on the cell phone.
The Hinkle family found out that E.E.'s doctor, Douglas Van Marel, is going to move to Montana. Looks like the old boy may have to break in another one for old Doc Paul.
Big Snow And Low Temperatures for Holabird
Holabird Advocate Meteorologist, Storm Chaser, predicts that on Wednesday night he expects that temps in the Holabird Area will get below zero and stay there until Sunday morning. Not much snow on those days, but the wind may pick up a bit, brings wind chill values down. The Ponderosa reports that Tuesday brought 4 inches of snow.
No New Toys for E.E. Hinkle
The Hinkle family has been having a hard time getting a lift chair rounded up for E.E. Hinkle. It is a good thing for them that he doesn't really need one. Had he really needed one, someone would have got it without all the bureaucratic red tape.
They have been looking for a phone through which he could hear. They must still be looking, as no phone has arrived earlier. Very few of us here at the Holabird Advocate think that science has invented such a device. Of course, anything is possible these days. It wasn't that long ago that E.E. thought his grandson Jerry Hinkle was putting him on when he told him about Caller ID. Well, picture telling your own grandfather about a box that tells you the name and phone number that is calling you before you even pick up the phone. We've come a long way in a relatively short time.
