It is High School Graduation in our area. It is traditional to host an open house to celebrate the graduates accomplishment. We went to an open house the other night..right at supper time of course and the food did not disappoint. Far Guy said he wished he had brought along some take home containers..I told him that wouldn’t be polite.
This is a photo of Far Guy’s sister. This photo was taken inside their childhood home in Park Rapids. She graduated from High School in 1963. She was a perfect “A” student, and on the National Honor Society. Doesn’t she look smart? She was an elementary teacher her entire career. She lives in Indiana, so I irritate her from afar..she is retired. Far Guys Dad took this photo, I am sure of it; his Mom would have taken the newspapers out of the chair.
Many of those trees in the forestry that were photographed out the window in the photo are no longer there.
There was a bad storm in Park Rapids late on Monday night. Many trees are down and many homes were damaged. As far as I know, no one was injured seriously or killed in the storm ( high winds/possible tornado.) Far Guy asked me to be sure and check on his old home place..it came through just fine, one tree had a broken branch. The Historical Museum came through unscathed. I had lots of leaves to clean off the front steps. The sound of chain saws filled the air the entire day yesterday. Many people are without electricity, and school was cancelled for the day:(
