Do you stop to read Historical Markers? Usually I can get Far Guy to stop, " Chance might need to be walked! " I am always curious about Historical Markers, I like to stop and read them. Imagine my surprise when I read this one, this is about twenty miles from our home.
Makes "What's for dinner?" a big unanswered question. Maybe it is the other white/dark meat.
Who would have thunk it, not me. Some of the Chippewa were cannibals..but apparently it is just as taboo in their culture as ours. No I have not have my head stuck in the sand, I am sure this never came up in History Class. I do not recall this bit of information. I learned not to say "I do not know" from a Social Studies Teacher who I absolutely adored, because he actually taught you something IF you listened. His name was Harold Collins. His answer to an "I do not know" response was " That is INCORRECT, you knew at one point because I told you, you simply do not recall." He was a short , slight little man, with slicked back hair, and he had eyes in the back of his head, not really but it seemed like it, not much got by him in his classroom. He always wore a suit and usually a white shirt and a tie, and his shoes were always shined. He had energy and taught with his own style, continually questioning and trying to excite his students. He died a number of years ago..I do not recall how long ago. He was one of the only teachers I would have given you more than two cents for in our local school system, probably because he was actually teaching.
Round Lake, I will never look at it quite the same again. It was a nice day yesterday, the sun was out for a bit. Having the sun come out is now an ocassion here in Minnesota, as October has been very wet, cold and dreary:)
