Happy har­vest­ing every­one, as I see the com­bines and grain trucks work­ing their way down the roads and through the fields. I have heard it is slow go­ing be­cause of the heavy crops but I hope you will all take the time to be care­ful out there. Please be aware as you drive down our coun­try roads that these huge ve­hi­cles that dom­i­nate the road can only go so fast and can’t move over to al­low you to pass im­me­di­ately but if you are pa­tience, every farmer will do their best to make sure that you get safely by.

Baylee Nel­son and Claire Kry­wcum are busy putting to­gether our first an­nual Christ­mas Mar­ket at the Hall. It is planned for Novem­ber 26 and they are look­ing for ven­dors who would be in­ter­ested in book­ing a ta­ble to sell your wares. The mar­ket will be open from 1:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. that day and there will be raf­fles as well as spe­cial­ity drinks for all who at­tend. Please call Baylee at 403-443-8384 or Claire at 403-321-0080 if you are in­ter­ested in book­ing a ta­ble.

There will be a me­mo­rial luncheon at the Rum­sey Dropin this Satur­day, Septem­ber 24 at 1:00 p.m. for fam­ily and friends of Ge­orgina Dingman. Ge­orgina and her hus­band Robert moved to the Row­ley area in 1946 where they farmed her mother’s farm and had five chil­dren, Robert Jr., Su­san, Bonny, Diane and David. Ge­orgina taught at the newly built Row­ley School Grades 4, 5 and 6 from the fall of 1958 to 1965 when their fam­ily moved to Stet­tler where she taught for one year. Robert and Ge­orgina then set­tled in We­taski­win where Robert took a job in the Health of An­i­mals Branch for the De­part­ment of Agri­cul­ture. Robert passed away in 2003.

I have to apol­o­gize to the Sen­gaus fam­ily for the mix-up last week. The happy par­ents of baby Elias are Dustin and An­drea. Devon and Nadine are busy en­joy­ing their two lit­tle ones on the farm.

David Web­ster was re­ally feel­ing the pres­sure of too much rain this past week when one of his hop­per-bot­tomed bins tipped over full of newly har­vested peas. The ground was so soft un­der the foun­da­tion of the bin that it couldn’t carry the weight of all the peas in­side. Luck­ily they were able to sal­vage most of the crop and store it else­where. Some­thing to lighten your day: A red­neck farmer from back in the hills walked twelve miles, one way, to the gen­eral store. “Heya, Wil­bur,” said Sam, the store owner. “Tell me, are you and Myrtle still mak­ing fires up there by rub­bing stones and flint to­gether?” “You betcha, Sam. Ain’t no ‘tother way. Why?” “Got some­thing to show you. Some­thing to make fire. It’s called a Match.” ‘Match? Never heard of it.” “Watch this. If you want a fire you just do this,” Sam says, tak­ing a match and strik­ing it on his pants.” “Huh. Well, that’s some­thing, but that ain’t for me, Sam.” “Well, why not?” “I can’t be walk­ing twelve miles to bor­row your pants every time I want a fire.”

Have a great week!
