VOL. V Issue 12O
Winter Time Comes to South Dakota
Tomorrow the Winter Solstice will arrive at 6:22 pm Holabird Time. Before that magical minute appears on any clock in South Dakota, parts of the state will have from 2-8 inches of snow and God only knows what else. We understand that those south of I-90 will get the lions share of this deal. All of us here at the Holabird Advocate hope that any of you Readers caught in the storm will use every bit of sense you can muster. You may want to stay home if you have the option. If you have to drive, be careful. Hopefully the worst thing that will happen to any of you tomorrow is that the Internet will be so busy that you will after to wait for the Holabird Advocate Front Page to load for a while.
No Calendar Next Year
After looking at the Pollmaster General concerning calendars, all of us here at the Holabird Advocate decided that it wasn't worth it. So nothing from The Ditty Bops, or John Deere. Only 43% of those surveyed preferred The Ditty Bops, 29% wanted John Deere, the rest wanted nothing. After looking at the Krispy Kreme Calendar our Publisher pretty much wanted to swear off donuts and calendars forever.
North of 40: The Door To Chaos
by Red Green
My wife received an unusual and anonymous gift for Christmas -- a beautiful antique doorknob for our front door. I installed it on New Year's Eve so we could have a fresh start with a new doorknob -- it's way easier than keeping resolutions. By Jan. 2, my wife noticed that the lamp and wall sconces in our front hall looked pretty cheap compared to the new doorknob and, as luck would have it, more suitable lamps and wall sconces were on sale at our local furniture store. Once we got those in place, the hall was looking great, but the living room seemed kind of shabby by comparison. That was two months ago. We have replaced almost all of the furniture and carpeting in the living room, dining room and throughout our whole house. I get an uneasy feeling every time I come home. That's because I have to go through our front door. I hate that doorknob -- the free gift that cost us a fortune. And, we have no idea who sent it to us. I'm guessing it was the furniture store.
