Orkney Or­a­cle

There isn’t much news this week ex­cept to com­ment as usual about the weather and won­der how the farm­ers are get­ting the spray­ing done with the fields be­ing so soft.

The com­mu­nity ex­tends con­grat­u­la­tions to Tay­lor Meuller and Wes Kashuba who were mar­ried July 9 on a hill over­look­ing Rose­bud and the re­cep­tion and dance in Rose­bud as well. Some of the Orkney folk at­tended the dance. The new­ly­weds will con­tinue to live in Mor­rin.

This past week I had grand­daugh­ter Roberta Ke­ichinger from Leth­bridge stop in on Tues­day night, spent Wed­nes­day with me and on to Ed­mon­ton on Thurs­day morn­ing. She is on hol­i­day right now and then back to work un­til the first week in Au­gust for an­other week to call her own. I al­ways en­joy it when the younger ones come.

If any­one is plan­ning on at­tend­ing the Stam­pede this week give me a call as I have some ad­mit­tance tick­ets that are free. Phone be­tween 9:00 and 11:00 am.

As I’m writ­ing this col­umn at 2:30 Mon­day af­ter­noon there is an­other down­pour of rain. It would be nice if it took a few days off!

That’s it for this week. From Reader’s Digest is a com­ment from Glo­ria Steinem, “One of the sim­plest paths to deep change is for the less pow­er­ful to speak as much as they lis­ten and the more pow­er­ful to lis­ten as much as they speak.” It would be nice if politi­cians did that.
