"Anne Frank" Tickets Available March 13
Our Publisher has been informed by a Reader that when she tried to buy tickets to "The Diary of Anne Frank" at the Antiques Mall, she was told that tickets weren't on sale yet. Director Dan Miller has informed our Publisher that tickets are available on a first come first served basis two weeks before the show. They are all general admission. Nothing is reserved. Since openning night is March 27, Jethro ciphers that 14 from 27 is 13. so get your tickets then, and be quick about it. The afternoon matinees have 700 students already, so get 'em when they're hot!
It's Greek to Jerry Hinkle
Proffessor Flynn of the DWU History Department, who is looking after Jerry Hinkle better than Jerry looks after himself, has let Jerry know that there will be a course on Ancient Greece that will have a unit on the formation of the early Christian Church starting next Fall. This will not only fill the requirement for his History Minor, but for the Religion Major as well. Two for the price of one. What a bargin! E.E. Hinkle would be so proud. It's about time!
South Dakota Magazine Newsletter
As if the brilliant people behind South Dakota magazine weren't busy enough, now they put out their own newsletter. Jerry Hinkle signed up for it, then forgot all about it. He got his first E-mail Edition yesterday. It is quite nice. Do you suppose if enough Hinkletons and Holabird Advocate Readers signed up, we could get South Dakota Magazine to cover the DWU Production, "The Diary of Anne Frank"? It's worth a shot!

Sister Mary Ann, who worked for a home health agency, was out making her rounds visiting homebound patients when she ran out of gas. As luck would have it, an Exxon Gasoline station was just a block away. She walked to the station to borrow a gas can and buy some gas.The attendant told her that the only gas can he owned had been loaned out, but she could wait until it was returned.Since Sister Mary Ann was on the way to see a patient, she decided not to wait and walked back to her car. She looked for something in her car that she could fill with gas and
spotted the bedpan she was taking to the patient. Always resourceful, Sister Mary Ann carried the bedpan to the station, filled it with gasoline, and carried the full bedpan back to her car.> As she was pouring the gas into her tank, two Baptists watched from across the street. One of them turned to the other and said, 'If it starts, I'm turning Catholic.'
North Of 40: To sleep, perchance to survive
by Red Green
"Artificial intelligence is no match for natural stupidity."
I've been falling asleep on the couch a lot lately. My wife is not impressed and, to be honest, it's a habit that I used to criticize my own father for. However, like so many faults I've seen in others, now that I'm doing it myself it doesn't bother me nearly as much. In fact, I would say falling asleep at seemingly inopportune times, or just being tired for no reason, are signs of great maturity. A few short years ago, instead of falling asleep, I'd be up and active well into the evening, fixing the stove or replacing a roof shingle or plumbing a sink. So when you add up the cost in terms of money spent to have a professional repair my repair, and, of course, time lost due to injury, you realize that me sleeping on the couch is the safest, smartest investment of my time and financial resources. And as soon as my wife remembers some of my other waking nocturnal interests, she will agree whole-heartedly.
