Country Fish Swims Upstream
All of us here at the Holabird Advocate were shocked to find that Del "Country Fish" Fischer died earlier today. The Country Fish was a a fixture of the KGFX "Big Country" for many years. He was a Friend to all who met him, and he will be missed. We also wish to extend our sympathy to his family as well as to all of our Friends at the Dakota Radio Group. He may have left the "Big Country", but he's in bigger country now!
Ponderosa Tourism Season Starts
The Ponderosa will be home to many guests this month. George and Mavis Kennedy are expected sometime in the middle of next week for a stay of undetermined length. They will be arriving in time to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Larry and Esther Weidenbach on June 14.
Ed Wallis has also booked a reservation. Ed will be arriving at the Pierre Airport on June 19 and planing to leave on June 23, Harold and Mary Hinkle's 43rd anniversary. In between, Ed plans to drive to Mitchell to visit the grave of his parents, Dr. and Mrs. G.C. Wallis. Hopefully he'll stop in Chamberlain to find out why his father is not in the South Dakota Hall of Fame. Ed may need to borrow a car, and since Jerry Hinkle happens to have two of them, that shouldn't be much of a problem.
What a Difference a Year Makes
It was on a warm Friday morning a year ago tomorrow that E.E. Hinkle was dispatched from this world and into the next. It is amazing when one considers all of the changes that the year has brought about. Back then it was so dry in Hyde County. Now it's greening up everywhere. People were worried about drought. Now they're worried about flooding. Harold and Mary Hinkle were in a hurry for E.E. to die so they could be shed of Jerry Hinkle. And while they are still in a hurry to be shed of him, but they are a year closer to that goal.
Fact is, we would not have remembered this had it not been for the kinds folks at the Luze Funeral Home sending a card to remind the Hinkle family of their loss, and E.E's gain. It's funny how things work out sometimes. Some things are still working out, but it will all come together. Maybe sooner than later. We imagine that E.E. is strolling through the corn fields of Heaven. He's looking for weeds, and finding none. On guard for raccoons, and none are about. He doesn't even have to fret about bugs and worms. All he has to do is watch it grow. Nice work if you can get it, eh!
