She is a sophomore at Dakota Wesleyan University majoring in Psychology. Tait is married to Lois Lindquist, who is Gary’s sister and Amber is Gary’s niece. We had a good dinner together and visit. They left for Jamestown later in the day. A good time was had by all.
Monday Amanda Bickett and Izzy arrived at the Ken and Marvis Holte home with treats to share and all enjoyed a good visit.
Saturday James River Ag was a buzz as Todd and Karen Koepplin, Taylor and Amanda Koepplin and Evelyn, Ross and Allyssa Lewis, Kenna and Grady carried on the family tradition turning pork, deer and moose into tasty sausage and summer sausage from the hoof to grinder, into casings and onto the smokehouse. Others who stopped in to lend a helping hand were Charlotte Koepplin, Martin Koepplin and Aaron Koepplin, and several others just stopped for conversation and to watch the process.
Eloise Lucht heard from son Larry and Irene from snowy Virginia. Their area got about a foot of snow and lots of wind with it, so snowbanks were high. It had already melted some and settled a lot.
Janet Laube enjoyed phone chats this week with sister in law Lois Ockert, Niece Robin Westall and grandson Travis Laube all of Fargo, niece Shelly Nelson of Oklahoma.
