We went shopping in Grand Forks, North Dakota on Saturday. The Red River of the North is flooded. There is only one bridge that is open between East Grand Forks, Minnesota and Grand Forks, North Dakota. This is the Kennedy Bridge.
So far the river is staying within the dikes.
This is the first time I have been in town when the flood walls have been up.
These are my shopping helpers. Adam is learning to open doors for women and to sit patiently outside a dressing room and hold “Stuff” for his Grandma. Jen is a shopper..she goes up and down the aisles..grabbing stuff..saying “I don’t care if you don’t like this on the hanger..you are trying it on.” I had given her the mental list I had, a summer dress, a sweater or two and a couple of tops and a pair or two of new shoes. Mission accomplished..Cabela’s even had a pair of brown crocs for me.
We met up with Noah, Andrew and Far Guy for lunch. Noah took a Gun Safety Class and they all went to the indoor shooting range at the Police Station for the final tests which were a written test, a oral test and a shooting test. Noah passed with flying colors! Hard for me to imagine that Noah and his friends are all old enough to hunt now..but they are and they have taken the Firearms class so they should be safe hunters.
