6.  wow…what a week for basketball last week….

friday night was spectacular…it had all the vibes of a classic game…and it was…..NUMBER ONE SUMMIT EAGLES….NUMBER TWO WARNER MONARCHS….GIRLS BASKETBALL REGIONAL FINAL…THE WINNER GOES TO THE STATE TOURNAMENT…THE LOSER IS DONE….BOTH TEAMS 19-1…..WARNER’S ONLY LOSS?  SUMMIT….SUMMIT’S ONLY LOSS?  ABERDEEN RONCALLI…(an “A” school.)

the game went down to the wire with my WARNER MONARCHS knocking off the two time defending state ‘B’ champion, SUMMIT EAGLES…..great game……had the heart pounding the entire fourth quarter…and the MILBANK ARMORY was packed to capacity……GOOD LUCK MONARCHS THIS WEEK AT STATE…

 

and, the school i graduated from beat my current town’s school in the boy’s championship game….tough fought game…the LANGFORD LIONS beat our WARNER MONARCHS in a high profile game…the LIONS now face a tough opponent in the ROSHOLT RAIDERS on tuesday night…winner goes to the state tournament…loser is done…….can’t get much better than that….

 

7.  on our way home from MILBANK friday night, we stopped by the new convenience store in WEBSTER…and for the first time, i tried one of those new milkshakes called “F’ REAL.”

I REALLY LIKED THEM…i had a strawberry/banana smoothie….i can guarantee i will be having more of those…….except we noticed the calories are quite high…which means absolutely NOTHING to me…..but a couple of other “health conscious” people in our entourage noticed it……it seems like everything good is fattening, right?

 

8.  KUDOS are going out to the STRATFORD COMMUNITY THEATER on thier awesome play and supper last night…every year this great group puts on a play/supper….this year is their 20th anniversary, so they pulled out a classic from the past and did the play “HILLBILLY WEDDIN’.”  it was absolutely hilarious….and i’m amazed at the talent of the STRATFORD area….it’s a small town…only around 72 people according to a 2010 census that i found……but wow do they have the talent…….

tickets sell out very quickly…be watching for next year’s play…just do me a favor…JUST BECAUSE I TOLD YOU ABOUT IT DOESN’T MEAN YOU CAN CALL AHEAD OF ME AND GRAB MY TICKETS…..ha ha…

 

9.  well, it looks like we have dodged another storm in the WARNER/ABERDEEN metro area…..we’re looking at 1-3 inches, while east of us could get 6 or so….in MOORHEAD, MINNESOTA where my son MITCHELL goes to college, they could get 6-10…….C’MON SPRING…I KNOW YOU’RE OUT THERE…SHOW YOUR FACE YOU COWARD……

 

10.  JOKE OF THE DAY:

 

When Beethoven passed away, he was buried in a churchyard.

A couple of days later, the town drunk was walking through the cemetery and heard some strange noise coming from the area where Beethoven was buried. Terrified, the drunk ran and got the priest to come and listen to it. The priest bent close to the grave and heard some faint, unrecognizable music coming from the grave.

Frightened, the priest ran and got the town magistrate.

When the magistrate arrived, he bent his ear to the grave, listened for a moment, and said, “Ah, yes, that’s Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony, being played backwards.”

He listened a while longer, and said, “There’s the Eighth Symphony, and it’s backwards, too. Most puzzling.” So the magistrate kept listening, “There’s the Seventh… the Sixth… the Fifth…”

Suddenly the realization of what was happening dawned on the magistrate. He stood up and announced to the crowd that had gathered in the cemetery, “My fellow citizens, there’s nothing to worry about. It’s just Beethoven decomposing.”

 

HAVE A GREAT WEEK…
