Mary Kay really sorry to hear of your siituation.  My wife's family has had similar.  It is great to see people using this forum a bit more.  I was hoping we could use it to exchange some memories or jokes or Ivy can tell us how to get rid of aphids by spraying vodka and lemonade on them.   I wonder if that would work.  Stay safe.

Hi Mary Kay, My husband had dimenyia and Parkinsons so I know this is not easy for you! It is hard to deal with someone who csnnot reason! or comprehend. He went to the Nursing Home when I broke my femer. So it was like the Lord stepped in and took over because he knew I could not take care of Ralph anymore! Make sure  you take time for yourself and go for coffee with frineds just to talk and be away from it for awhile:)

Thank you for the responses of understanding and encouragement!  Hearing from others who have had friends and family members who have dealt with dementia is comforting!

Glad to hear that Denny is doing well.  I put a couple hundred thousand on 18 wheelers myself before starting to have kidney issues. I really liked driving.  Anyway on another subject yesterday I waxed my truck (SSR) got up this morning and I'm so stiff I can hardly walk.  I used to wax a truck, then go dancing then .......well.  Anyway getting older can be a challenge.   Stay safe.

Well I can tell you one of the more embarrassing things I did during my driving days.  I was single then, the truck was mostly home I kept my car at a truck stop in Devils Lake because that is where the truck was based out of and my parents lived there.  I had a load out of Minneapolis to Havre, Mt in the early spring, when I got to Fargo it was storming sort of a rain/snow mix and freezing.  I drove from Fargo to Devils Lake about 35 mph got to the truck stop and called my parents.  Mom answered and I told her I was coming out to spend the night her reply was be carful driving the roads are icey.  I will let you imagine my reply.  It was about 10-11 at night and my parents lived north of town about 8 miles on a gravel road.  My car was a 64 Pontiac GTO a bit over powered for a gravel road that was solid ice.  I put it in a ditch about 2 miles from my parents, left there and walked the rest of the way.  I told my mom she was sure right about the roads.   Your turn Denny.   Stay safe.

If you can't post a response it is because you aren't logged in.  You can read the message forum without being signed in but you can't respond.  For anyone riding the Empire Builder (Amtrac train) through Glacier Park book a couple night stop at The Issac Walton Inn.  It is a great little Inn that was originaly built for use by train crews.

Greetings Classmates of "62"

Thank you for the sweet angel of Willow Tree "thinking of you".  What a blessing to know that classmates are praying and thinking of oneself and spouse when going thru a scary time.  Everyday Dick is improving and getting stronger.  Just dropped him off for cardiac rehab so know hes going to get a workout this morn.  But I must tell you of the wonderful world of medicine in this state.  The confidence they give one at a moment of crisis, and the respect they show for patients.  We are so lucky to have them. 

While I was occupied and living in a hotel, I see I missed a couple of birthdays.  So belated Happy Birthday to Janice and Russ.  I'm sure your celebrations were fun and happy.  We must celebrate every single one!  And we must celebrate each other.  Friendships are special and long lasting ones, like classmates, are extra precious.

Thanks for the Birthday wish Barb. Keep providing that great care to your patient, Dick, and take care of your self. Hopefully we can all get together and toast each other soon.

This is for Darlene Hafner (Tennyson)

I have recently been going through some old photos of my Dads.  In the process I came across about 20 photos of a parade.  They must have been from a Centennial or something of that sort, women watching the parade are dressed in old time long dresses, men have beards etc.  Newest cars in photos are 1958.  There are abouit 20 photos and they are color transparancies.  (slides)  I would like to give them to someone in Carrington would you ask around please.

That would most likely be the 75th Anniversary, great celebration. Foster County now has a very nice museum, out by the Fairgrounds, many of us saw it during our reunion in '08. I know I was impressed. I'm certain Darlene can provide you with contact information. 

Have a great day !

Larry Reisnouer

Hey Russ.  That would work I just hate to throw photos like this away but they don't mean any hing to me.  They are pretty good photos showing floats, the high school band and people watching.  Good idea thanks.  Stay safe.  I should probably change that photo.

Wanted to share a phenomeon that is happening in Village of Lake Hallie (just south of Chippewa Falls).  After summer days of ugly hot humid weather, a cold front came through and cooled the temps down and nice rains on top of it.  The cooler weather tricked the lilac shrubs clock to thinking it was spring and they started to bloom.  It will be interesting to see if they will bloom next spring.
