  • “It is like trying to find a needle in a haystack” now has a new meaning for me.

    Son John is cutting almost waist-high hay in a 10-acre patch, a field just below my house. Suddenly he has a job for me.

    He has lost a cutting knife of the mower, and it has to be found before it punctures a tractor tire. All I need to find it is a magnet and possibly a pitchfork.

  • Mora residents are up for a special treat this weekend. The Mora Community Theatre group will present “Little Red and the Riding Hoods” for three shows starting tonight (Friday).

    The show contains Mora area residents of all ages. The production is a spin on the classic story; just think wilder.

    The show is under the direction of Connie Krusemark and Sandi Robles. Peggy Meeks is serving as stage manager.

    UPCOMING &

  • My nephew, and sweet brother Bill’s son Ttom (yes, that is spelled correct) and his family were just here for the annual summertime ranch visit. Ttom and John were sorting through that huge “old-stuff,” big pile of both photographs and old family papers. They found some interesting old family memorabilia.
