Happy New Year, ev­ery­one. I hope it will be filled with many bless­ings for you and your fam­ily near and far.

I think this past Christ­mas sea­son was one for the record books with the ex­treme cold blow­ing in the way it did just be­fore Christ­mas then leav­ing just as quickly right af­ter New Year’s day. Now that we are back into the warm weather, it will make travel eas­ier as the chil­dren head back to school and their stud­ies.

The bon­spiel sea­son is warm­ing up as well as a few of our lo­cal men trav­eled over to Three Hills this past week to par­take in the bon­spiel there.

The Rum­sey Men’s Bon­spiel is sched­uled to start Jan­uary 22, and run for the week.

Don’t for­get about Oys­ter night on Thurs­day, Jan­uary 25, at the rink and the bon­spiel sup­per on Satur­day is al­ways open to ev­ery­one, not just the curlers. Con­tact Brooks and Jackie Watts at 403368-2357 to en­ter a team. Also, they will be tak­ing en­tries for the Ladies bon­spiel which is planned for Fe­bru­ary 7 to 10, the Mixed Dou­bles on Fe­bru­ary 22 to 24 and the Mixed from March 4 to 10. We would love to see more teams come and join us this year so keep those dates in mind.

Linda Helmer was the host­ess at St. Mary’s Lodge for the De­cem­ber Birth­day club and there were quite a few birth­days to cel­e­brate.

In Ex­tended Care, Edna Stennes cel­e­brated her birth­day and in the Lodge, Ellen Jewell, Bud Nel­son, Dorothy Dyer, Mary Green and El­dred Maerg cel­e­brated their spe­cial day. The next birth­day club date will be Jan­uary 15 with Judy Stone­man host­ing

Thank you to all the ladies who take time to con­tinue this tra­di­tion.

There are still a few Rum­sey Li­brary cal­en­dars avail­able so don’t for­get to drop in and sup­port the li­brary by pur­chas­ing one of th­ese beau­ti­ful, lo­cally cre­ated, keep­sakes. Your lo­cal li­brary has lots to of­fer so if you haven’t been by in a while, stop in and see all the new on­line ser­vices that are avail­able.

There will be an En­vi­ron­men­tal Farm Plan Re­newal Work­shop held at the Bad­land’s Com­mu­nity Fa­cil­ity in Drumheller on Jan­uary 24, from 6:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. hosted by Star­land and Knee­hill County. Ef­fec­tive April 1, 2018, pro­duc­ers will need to have an EFP com­ple­tion let­ter within the last 10 years to be el­i­gi­ble for cer­tain fund­ing so this will be an ex­cel­lent op­por­tu­nity to get it done.

Hope you en­joy the joke, have a great week.

A cow­boy, who just moved to Wy­oming from Texas, walks into a bar and or­ders three mugs of Bud. He sits in the back of the room, drink­ing a sip out of each one in turn. When he fin­ishes them, he comes back to the bar and or­ders three more.

The bar­tender ap­proaches and tells the cow­boy, “You know, a mug goes flat af­ter I draw it. It would taste bet­ter if you bought one at a time.”

The cow­boy replies, “Well, you see, I have two brothers. One is in Ari­zona, the other is in Colorado. When we all left our home in Texas, we promised that we’d drink this way to re­mem­ber the days when we drank to­gether. So I’m drink­ing one beer for each of my brothers and one for my­self.”

The bar­tender ad­mits that this is a nice cus­tom, and leaves it there.

The cow­boy be­comes a reg­u­lar in the bar, and al­ways drinks the same way. He or­ders three mugs and drinks them in turn.

One day, he comes in and only or­ders two mugs. All the reg­u­lars take no­tice and fall silent. When he comes back to the bar for the sec­ond round, the bar­tender says, “I don’t want to in­trude on your grief, but I wanted to of­fer my con­do­lences on your loss.”

The cow­boy looks quite puz­zled for a mo­ment, then a light dawns in his eyes and he laughs.

“Oh, no, every­body’s just fine,” he ex­plains, “It’s just that my wife and I joined the Bap­tist Church and I had to quit drink­ing. Hasn’t af­fected my brothers though.”
