The Devil You Say
Being Front Page news in Holabird is easy. The Front Page is all we have here at the Holabird Advocate. And the population is small enough that every who wants to can be Front Page news, sometimes those who don't want to as well.
In the Twin Cities area, it's a little different. Kevin and Jaime Hansen of St. Paul, Minnesota have become Front Page news for a somewhat bizarre set of circumstances. Apparently, they were almost about to give birth to a satanic child, or so they were led to believe.
There soon to be delivered daughter was to have been born on 6-06-06, but they were talked into postponing delivery until the next day by a well meaning nurse. You can read all about it at this link: http://www.startribune.com/462/story/471780.html
No reported name for the baby. Hopefully not Belle Zebub Hansen!
On a totally unrelated matter, 06-06-06 is also Primary Election Day in Hyde County. Democrat get to pick their candidate for Governor, while Republicans get to choose the Hyde County Register of Deeds. All of us here at the Holabird Advocate hopes that the best man wins. As Hillary Clinton says, "Sometimes the best man for the job is a woman."
Luckily this whole thing will all blow over soon, and should not be a problem for another 100 years, providing we survive it.
Round-up Time at the Ponderosa
Darrel Hinkle decided that after getting 1.08 inches of rain, it was too wet to make hay, so he decided it was time to give the calves their spring shots. Ron LaFortune helped out too. It was a long hard day, with alternating pouring rain and blistering hot sun. Jerry Hinkle was kicked three times, and only cussed twice. That's 2 cents in the swear jar. We won't mention the names of those who will need folding money, but Mary Hinkle kept her mouth so clean that perhaps the swear jar owes her some money back.
Jerry should have also remembered Shannon Jurgens advice concerning sunscreen. Some folks thought Jerry was working on the second day of a sunburn, but no, that was just one day. Even though he has never heard her voice, Jerry can feel Shannon singing "Red Lobster for the seafood lover in you!" She's no Janie Fricke!
E.E. Hinkle's Condition Stays Put
For reasons that nobody quite understands, E.E. Hinkle is in quite a bit of pain. After having almost choked on pudding Friday afternoon, he has not eaten anything, but has taken in water and the occasional sip of orange soda. He can't even keep "Boost" down.
Joyce Ferris has done a remarkable job watching over her 103 year old father so the rest of the family can tend to the cattle and other things. Mavis Kennedy will be on her way to help out tomorrow. E.E. Was surprised by a visit from Ed and Donna Wallis from Decatur, Illinios. Unfortunately, he couldn't visit as well as he has in the past. All of us here at the Holabird Advocate know that either way he will recover. Still, our prayers go out to him and his family.
Hey Jerry,Post a Comment
I thought you might like to know that Alan blistered he burned so bad. Also, Scott still looks reddish. The boys, Hunter and Houston, however, look like brown sugar they tanned so nicely with all the sunscreen I lathered on them. So maybe they looked like the Stay Puff Marshmellow man sneezed on them... so what!
We are sorry to hear about E.E. He has been in our prayers. He seems like someone we know really well even though we haven't ever met him. Send him our best wishes.
