Kathleen, won't be a problem with my trailer, it's got to be out of the building the first Sat. in May.

Torggy, my uncle George Sundstrom standing up in the picture. He was one of the founders of the Homesteader's, I believe. Unfortunately, I can't read it. Must be an MSN-TV thing. I tried to enlarge the print but couldn't. Oh well!

Blondie, check on that Westberg thing. The reason I think they owned the Whitecaps is when Bill was a little kid he had multiple surgeries to correct a birth defect and the Duluth paper mentioned them as owning the Whitecaps. Ask your husband since he's from Two Harbors. He may remember. DAB, you might remember. I see the Moose Lodge made the T.H. paper. I was a member when I lived back there but not now. I am a lifetime member of the Veterans oF Foreign Wars there in T.H., since 1970.

Blondie, forgot to answer your question about Mary Anne Beck. I believe she and her sisters Irene and Bernice all live up on the range-I'll have to ask their brother Pete. I know Kenny is in Cloquet, and I think both Dan and Ted are in T.H.

Do you ever see Reijo Vastila in town? I went down to his house several times last summer but couldn't find him home. Someone said he was going to move back to the farm in Alden Township. I want to show him my pictures from my trips to Finland. He moved from Finland and joined us in the 5th grade, I believe.

It can be hard to read those things after being processed through so many computers. I sent you a clean bigger copy.

Anyone else that has trouble reading things just let me know.

I didn't have any trouble reading the story Torggy.
LWM, I asked my husband about Whitecaps, and he doesn't recall, but said it is possible. Even if someone from TH forum comes on here, maybe they can help out. I know Bill worked for the railroad.

I haven't seen Reijo in awhile, but I usually run into him at the grocery store also. I should call Roger Saamanen, he probably knows if he is living back up to the farm. Our classmate Mike Johnson, relative of Reijo's, was staying at the farm for awhile taking care of it, but know Mike isn't there anymore.

Yes both Ted and Dan B live in town. I wasn't sure if all the girls were still up on the range. Kathy B lives in town as far as I know. I haven't seen Kenny in years, just years. I know he remarried, so he lives in Cloquet now huh. Does his X still live down on Greenwood? Didn't she have a beauty shop there? Or am I thinking of someone else.

Kathy our son just got back from visiting Texas, loved it down there. Can you sneek me in your suitcase!!!

We have been out all morning, just came in, putting a huge trellis together, it was cool, but it is so warm out there now. Wish the sun would show though.

LWM, boy did we get hit with the heavy rains. I looked out, and it was a river running down our alley and I imagine right in our garage also.

Blondie, it left quite a bit of standing water here during the night. I checked the live cam that looks at the Aerial Bridge this pm and couldn't see anything thru the raindrops! Couldn't see anything from the tower cam. One nice thing about that kind of rainfall is that it washes up the winter crud that has accummulated over the winter. Years ago it was about now that we would start getting excited about smelting season. One of the advantages of living near the lake. We could take a dipnet down and see if anything was around. Didn't have to freeze our backsides off without any results.

Your question about Sandy's Hair place. She's still there, cuts my hair (whats left of it) while I'm there. Her husband is my golfing partner-not many golfers down in that French River Greenwood Road area other that Dan and Gerry Fuentes and their son and daughter.

We play Nemadji over in Superior quite a bit, once in awhile Lester River and Enger. We like Silver Bay alot. Two Harbors needs a company in there that runs golf courses. No offense to the city workers but they're just not trained in proper golf course maintenance-they do the best they can with what they have. A ride down the first hole fairway in a golf cart is an experience to behold! It's like riding on a hardened lava flow. Will try out the course at Giant's Ridge this summer. I hear good things about it. We drove in there a year or so ago and it looked very nice. I'd have to say the most beautiful course I've played is Kapalua on Maui, both the Bay and Plantation courses. The Plantation course is where the pro tour opens it's season each year. The scenery is spectacular. We spent five days there four years ago and I played the whole time I was there-my idea of the perfect vacation!

I played Caeser Park in Cancun back in 99 and that was nice but nobody bothered to tell me there are crocodiles that sun themselves on the fairways. I shanked a ball over near the lagoon and pulled up to the side of the hill and grabbed an iron and started walking down to the ball. The guy riding with me yelled "Alligator", I thought it was an old log, it was the same color as the logs you see in a swamp. I think I took one step to get to the cart and no, I did not take a penalty stroke!!!!!

Silverado up in Napa is another gorgeous golf course. It's right in the middle of the Napa Valley (this is very close to Boon). I marshalled the Senior Tour Transamerica Tournament so got to speak with quite a few of the seniors. Gary Player, Arnold Palmer, just to name a few. Most of them are true gentlemen, only a few hotheads.

Acording to the DNR site:
http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/areas/fisheries/lakesuperior/smelt.html

The French, Sucker and Little Sucker are closed to smelting. Course smelting is not what it used to be but that sure would have put a hitch in spring time to not be able to dip the French. Smelting season used to signal it was time to ditch the old girl friend and get a new one.

Can remember times going down to the river to find huge crowds of people and no smelt. Other times I would go down there with no one around and the river just teeming with'em.

Sure miss those days.

Sunny now, and I looked out, and the grass sure greened up with that rain. Yes, LWM, we needed a rain to wash away the remanents of winter.

You sure love to golf don't you. Sounds like you played some nice courses, and an interesting one at that!!!! I took golf lessons once, or I should say signed up for them. The first lesson I knew it wasn't for me, so that was it. I am not good at any kind of sports!

Memories flew back when you talked about the fairways being rough at the course here. My husband used to be greenskeeper there, many years ago. I was very overdue with the birth of our son, so he took me for a ride around the course in the little truck he had there on those very bumpy fairways, in hopes it would help...did it work NO!!! So, I know just what your talking about. Like he said, you can only do so much with the equipment you have, and the seasonal workers that they hire, some were good workers, and some were no help at all!! I remember him getting up early in the morning to move the sprinklers on the greens and fairways, try to get that done before the golfers got on the course.

Yes we heard that about the Dixie being sold to Scott. My husband saw him a couple days ago, and asked him if he was going to keep the Fri & Sat night feeds, and he said he sure is, that is the money maker. Kathy I didn't know Earl was a cousin of yours, you must be related to almost all of Knife River in some way or another.

LWM mentioned Dan Fuentes, he graduated with my son. I run into his dad all the time at the grocery store and we chat. I told him the last time, that we had to quit meeting like this!!! He got a good laugh out of that.

Torggy, now your old flames are going to know why they got dumped when smelting season came around

Just got off the golf course. Beautiful day out here, not a cloud in the sky and around 65. I belong to a Men's Club and we play Mondays and Thursdays (when I'm in town). Glad to hear they have sold the course there in T.H.

Kathleen, where is Terry Hood going or will he stay in T.H. (Long time owner of Dixie Star). My sister-in-law worked with him at Husky years ago.

Anybody know the status of the new Lighthouse restaurant in Palmers? I'm looking forward to trying it out when I get there. They are a nice family and I wish them much success.

Years back we had an Ida Lynch in the home. She was a little pettite lady. I think they lived up the state road somewhere. That is the only name that comes to me Kathy.

I remember Kerri Ojay. Wasn't Kerri also married to someone else?

I wish our brother in law Kenny Olson was still alive, any questions he could answer, he knew everyone, who was related to who, etc.

I know Ona owns a house in Duluth, that isn't the house your talking about though is it Kathy? Know her and Terry used to have a motor home, so maybe now they will travel around some.

I spent hours outside yesterday priming that lattice fence, only one section done. Decided to buy spray primer, enough is enough with the brush, spraying will take less time.

Blondie,
Just read your post on Delores. How is she? I will be in Duluth next week and will stop by if she can have visitors.
LWM, Yes, I do remember when you picked me up. I think you actually picked me up twice. Once to show a kid "way out of his element" around and the second time to let me know in a very gentle way that Mike had just passed away. You and your wife probably don't realize what that meant to me, but it is one of those times you will never forget. Thanks. Interesting, Just as I figured out who LWM was, I was thinking to myself, I wonder if he remembers picking me up and toting me around SF and spending the day at your home, then picking me up again to let me know about Mike. I remember seeing you and your brother D coming home in your uniforms, telling stories, and Mike and I would be all ears. (and snitch a few beers) That's when I first decided if I had to go into the military, the Navy is where I'd go. I also remember your SS396, Mike and I would take it out "once in a while" (don't know if he had permission or not") to keep it running for you. (didn't your brother J buy it from you) Maybe we kept it running for him?) Wow, was it fast! Mike and I used to drive your Dads Cadilac or my Dads old 52 Buick around the rest of the time, until Mike rolled the old Buick on the Lismore road at the Intersection with the Berquist. We where taking turns seeing how far to the side we could get the old Buick to slide in the dirt.(I'm sure that didn't help Mikes heart)
Mike used to make bread all the time at the house for your Dad and your Dad was always trying to get me to eat Lutefish (sp?)you guys had it for Xmass or some special time once or twice a year. YUK! Great memories!

Hey Bud, good to hear from you. I understand you are somewhere on the east coast.

Yea, I had sold the Chevelle to brother J, he was also over in SE Asia at the same time as brother D and I. He was in a far more dangerous spot. He was up on the DMZ firing a 175 Howitzer. 14 months worth. Being swabbies, we were always on the water.

I heard those stories, some from Les Jackson cause I think he was one of your mischief partners, right?

I recall your dad having a carpool too. I think he had either a 53 or 54 Chev, light blue and white. Little bit of rust too!!! I know Peggy Gustafson and Leona Lundin, Chucks mom, rode with him. He was at MP&L for quite a few years, right? What year did you guys graduate? Did you guys go to Bloomingdale?

If you make it to Duluth in the summer, stop and see me. I'm in Knife River Campground, Space #4.

Bud, Delores would like that. She called this morning, seemed a little nervous, and actually they are probably admitting her to Lake Shore right at this time.
Oh yes, visitors are allowed. You can call there to make sure that she is still in there when you come next week.
Hopefully, she won't be in there too long, just get her strength back, and maybe walk a little better. Part of the walking though is not due to the back, but to her other health issues.

Had a lovely visit with Boon, she just left. They think it is just a matter of days for her dad, but as Kathy and I know all too well, never can tell.

LWM, Boon told me to say "Hi" to you, and she will be talking to you when she gets back. I told her she could have gone on the net here, but she said no, that was fine. She said she would be hours on it!!!! I know what that is like.

We went by the new restaurant the other day, and it is coming along good. Looking forward to it opening.

Kathy, I didn't know she was in the home, do you know how long it was? Was she there when my sister in law was in there? I really liked her, and she knew who I was, when I saw her and such a good cook!!! She lived a long life.

Torggy, I also understand that article about my uncle that I wrote to you about is out this month. I was talking to another relative about it, and they said it is in this months newsletter. I thought it was going to be in the May issue, so I was surprised. I too went on the net yesterday, and looked, it is not updated yet. I did drop them an e-mail wondering when they update.

I thought Violet Sunde was in the home when I was working, and acutally, I had started writing that in the previous post, and took it out. I know at that time, I was working the "very early shift", so I wasn't taking care of residents pre say, so I didn't take care of her.

I know my Violet moved across the hall, after I left, and I have been gone for quite a few years already!!!! I just never saw V.S. when I went up to visit my sis in law.

No reason to go up there anymore, and not many left that I knew when I worked, including staff!!

I bet the nicer weather has everyone out and about doing things.

The Township newsletter has said it is okay for us to post some of their articles as long as we give them the credit. They have some great stories that I bet many will like.

Thank you all for the birthday greeting. It was a good day, all the kids were here and outlaws. We had a early dinner out. the three kids and boss lady all chipped in and I have a new Dell to play with.
Warren: That 37 bus of Walter's ran like a top.
Torggy: Your right his bus was very quiet He was at full concentration at all times. I guess he took the safety of the kids to heart.
A little story: Senior year we were on the road to a football game and for some reason running late. The Coach and players convivced the driver to speed it up or they might foriet the game. I can remember sitting with tha Coach behind the driver and the speedometer was close to 70mph. Of course the driver and coach informed us no one was to know about what took place. Yes the driver was Reino. The bus would even vibrate at times. Mostrom would have had a fit.

Thanks Kathy. No, we went West...headed for Brainerd area. Actually, stayed in a Lodge that was built in 1920's I believe it was, but totally remodeled. Nice place, good food.(Whiskey steak...the best I have ever had...yes marinated in Whiskey)MMMMMMM!!!!! All rooms face the lake. We had a walk out deck. The only thing, there was just us, oh we heard someone above. Remember that movie with Jack Nicholason...we both thought about that!!! Spent a couple nights there. Toured around the area, spent way too much money in a gift shop, and I do mean way too much!!!

Then I saw an ad for a Lodge in Detroit Lakes. I called prior to heading over there for prices, and got an AARP rate. Walked into the lobby, a baby grand sitting there...wow!!! Walked into our room, if I had false teeth, believe you me, they would have been on the floor. I was speechless. The most beautiful room we have ever had. The bathroom was like a Spa...I wanted to sleep in there!!!! The only thing I didn't like in the bathroom, it was a glass shower, and I could see my old saggy body in the mirror, that depressed me. Excellent continental breakfast!! We certainly will be going back there, it was tops on my list of places.

The leaves were out a little more on Poplar tree's but that was it, yards were green. Temp one morning was 39. It wasn't all that much warmer down there, but we still enjoyed ourselves.

Where did you guys go for lunch?

From this months Township news letter:

May 10th is Bob Abrahamson Day
In recognition of a lifetime of volunteering to Duluth Township.
The Town Board will recognize Bob Abrahamsonís service to the Township with a Lifetime
Service Award at their May 10th meeting. Many know Bob from his work over the years at our
Recycling Shed and as volunteer on Town Hall maintenance work. Before that, Bob served for
20+ years as a Township Supervisor where he paid special attention to upgrading Township roads
and handling two severe road-washout floods. Bob served in the Marines. He was a Boy Scout
leader and activity chair for 10 years, and for 25 years has arranged our Township Memorial Day
service. He is a life-long Duluth Township resident and attended the Bloomingdale and Clover
Valley schools. Bob and his wife, Delorisí have two children, Jim and Beth Ann, and two grandchildren,
Corey (who helped Bob at recycling), and Kelly.

There is a great article by Violet Sunde about her life as a cook at Bloomingdale and North Shore Elementry. It is a great read but you have to have have PDF reader to see it.
http://www.duluthtownship.org/pdf/may07_newsletter.PDF

There are also some great pictures of French River and the bridge. They are doing a great job on the newsletter.

Boon, my thoughts are with you in this difficult time for you and your family. Please take comfort in the fact that even though your dad has left your life, the many good memories will never leave. That has always comforted me in difficult times.

I always remember your dad coming out to my car at the gas station to say hello. That was very special for a young guy.

Those of you that haven't had a chance to read Violet Sunde's article in the Township newsletter, I suggest doing so. Quite interesting. She was quite a lady. I remember, and this is some years ago, we were having dinner at Shorecrest and my brother spotted Violet sitting by the window with her daughter Marlene. He couldn't resist and walked over as we were getting ready to leave and told her he finished his dinner and could he have a Cheerio. She got quite a kick out of that! I still remember her potato salad as the best I have ever eaten--to this day!!! At Bloomingdale, the last day of school we had a picnic and afterward we were allowed to walk down to Nolte's store.

In those days, each grade had it's own ball field. The first graders were on the west side by the road, the second grade was behind that in the corner beyond the tricking poles, and the third grade was on the side toward Heino's farm or Nolte's store. I recall playing baseball, but don't remember ever playing football there.

Mrs. Mckenzie, the first grade teacher was ancient, was probably standing on the beach when the pilgrims landed. Mrs. Mandelin, the second grade teacher was a great lady. She taught my mother. The third grade teacher, Mrs. Williams, invented crabby-saw her break wooden rulers on hands, fortunately not mine!

Class of 1960, as I remember them:

Ken Beck
Don Peterson
Dennis Olmstead (whom I see her in CA)
Reijo Vastila
Ray Jackson
Curt Nelson
Joe Pearson (lives in So. CA)
Roger Carlson
Bruce Lundgren
Linda Olson Aho
Laurel MacLean Truscott
LaDean Sheldon Wahlberg
June Hiltunen Rabold
Marjorie Gustafson Snell
Betty Kehoe
Frances Peterson Lundgren
Rose Udenberg
Judy Center
Priscilla Mattson
Martin Victor Jackson (Deceased)
Sandra Ness
Charles Julian

Some others who started Bloomingdale but didn't finish at CV:
Helen Oberg
Pat Driscoll
June McCauley
Carol Brula
Leo Johnson
Linda Killstrom
George Kyrola
Darlene Hirsch

There were others that came and gone, just like my brain right now!! Hope I didn't miss anyone.

It seems posting has come to a halt. The weather may have a inpact, sure hope we have not run out of subjects. Maybe the next new thread we could post a brief history of individuals.
We ended our sophmore year with a class fishing trip. Our supervisor's on this trip were Herb Johnson and Elmer Swartz. This trip we spent Three night's One at Herb Johnson's cottage, I think it was pine or pike lake. The last two nights were at Pelican Lake. We had a good time and we did catch some fish.
Our Jr. year we again spent one night at Herb's cottage and with the intention of spending two at Pelican. Turned out there was a mixup in reservations and we only spent one hight.and could not extend them as they had people comming in the next day.

Thank you to all of you for your kind words and condolences. Our family misses Dad tremendously and we are so grateful to have had the time with him before he passed away. He was able to communicate with us the first week I arrived. The last two weeks he could not talk well and was very weak, altho, he was able to understand us.

It was so much fun to meet Blondie (and Mr. Blondie) on this visit to Two Harbors. It was very special indeed. Next time our class meets again, Blondie, we will be sure to let you know. Thank you so much for the wonderful visit.

I also enjoyed the wonderful company of Bruce Solem, Mary and Marilyn Grubb, Terry Stromberg, Sandy Rose, Joan Nynas, Kathy Wilde, Bill Holappa, Pixie Gustafson, Tom Grubb and my sisters. Visited with Barb and Bob Jackson for awhile which was also wonderful. The bonds we develop from our youth are strong and never forgotten. Thank you to all of you and to all of you on the forum.

We had one warm day (80 degrees). Otherwise, it was cold and chilly but always beautiful. I walked daily and really enjoyed the scenery.

I arrived in CA Sunday. Linda got back to Alaska today and my sister, Mikie, will be leaving on Friday. We will, of course, continue to keep in touch with our family in Minnesota.

I was hoping to meet Madd Maxx and Valley Girl, but I guess that will have to be another visit....

This time, I decided to walk away, and wait for this thread to come up, instead of sitting watching the screen and getting irritated waiting.
Boon, it certainly was nice that you stopped by for a visit, wish we could have gotten together and chatted more while you were here.

Maybe next time Boon when you get to travel back to the Valley it will be more enjoyable. Not knowing where you traveled while in this neck of the woods, our paths could of crossed. I do get around quite a bit when work is not keeping running. I have been laying low lately, being pretty busy at work but finding the time to chase the Mr. Titlist and hit him with Mr. Ping. Like a true northlander I take the time to enjoy our good weather.

You're so good about taking pictures of the area and along the lake shore, I thought perhaps I'd see you doing just that. Who is Mr. Titlist and Mr. Ping? You've got me on that one, Maxx.

I guess it a good thing I got back on tonight. Titlis (golf ball) & Mr. Ping (golf club). LWM could had explain this one. As for taking some photos. Now that it has rain, everything should green up and make for some good photos.

One time while I was out taking photos, Blonde made a post how she had driven to Duluth. I laugh I had stopped at the wayside rest by French River by the tunnel which was my first stop. Ok, no picture of Blonde driving by the river.

Glad Boon asked about Titlis and Ping, as I had no idea who you were talking about Maxx. Hmmm, I think I am going to start paying more attention from now on, when I see someone out taking pictures.
Yes, with all this rain, it is really green. Only thing, I will have to probably cut the grass again, as looks like it really took off now.
Too bad they didn't get some of this rain up where the Forest Fires are burning and destroying homes and cabins, they really need it badly up there. Hopefully our son can return home to his family this week, as sounds like the fires are more into Canada now.

Yes Kathy, we are very proud of him. He cares very much about the people in his county.

I have a stack of articles we cut out of various papers with him mentioned in almost all of them.

Do you remember hearing about that plane that went down a few years back, and there were two little girls who survived...he is the one who found them. Nothing left of the plane,(pilot and their mother dead) but away from the crash, he saw movement, and up comes a little head.

Then he went out all alone one day, and searched through the ashes,where he figured their mother was sitting and found the mothers wedding ring, with a little help from above!!
He brought it to the jewelry shop to be cleaned, and he made a special trip down to the hospital in Minneapolis where those little girls were at, and gave them their mothers ring!!!!


Now that you know my name for sure, I only think it is fair, that I get to know who a couple posters are also. PM message will do, and I promise to keep my big mouth shut!!!!

Blondie, that is so great! It is so nice to read about good people and the things they do.

I work around many local county sheriffs. As with any walk of life there are always bad eggs. However stories like your son's seem to be more the norm among them. It takes a special breed.

Yes torggy, it does take a special breed. May I ask, what do you do that you work around many local county sheriffs....PM if you want, or e-mail.

My husbands cousin was Sheriff in our county for 20 years, so guess it is in the blood.

All I know, since our son was little, he played the part of Law Enforcement. Even in his teenage years, I have a picture on my wall of him and our exchange student, taken out in SD....guess who was the Sheriff!!

Your always going to get bad "eggs" where ever you work, ones that give a bad name. But hopefully the good ones get recognition also.

Talk about special Breeds, where Kathy and I worked, believe you me, that job wasn't for the faint of heart...we were a special breed for sure.

If my thinking is straight, I believe I took my gun safety training from your husband's cousin the sheriff. In the big house next to the court house in TH. Had a great room full of his gun collection. The class went to the shooting range in the park then on a long walk around the old dump.

I have installed electronic equipment into just about everything that walks, rolls, flies, crawls, or floats for over 30 years. This time of year is what I call "cop car season". I take brand new Crown Vic's with 20 miles on them and drill holes all over. It's kinda therapeutic. Put in the lights, radios, computer, rifle rack, and anything else needed.

I get to meet the leadership to make the overall decisions about the cars and work closely with the rank and file as I get the cars built and delivered. I use a stall in the county shop to build the cars so officers come and go all day.

Build cars for a couple of the smaller towns around also.

In the off season its fire trucks, ambulances, cement trucks, dump trucks and busses among other things. I have put two way-radios into things I did not even know what they were till some one told me.

Having visited several assited living centers on a regular basis, I have great respect for the people that work there. Also my daughter works after school as kitchen clean-up help in one, three or four evenings a week.

Yes torggy that is right, he taught gun safety. That old building is long gone. Actually that housed the jail. His wife used to cook for the inmates.

Thanks for sharing what your connection to law enforcement is.

Goodness I haven't seen Everett S around in ages.

Drummer, yes it is a small world and thanks for the kind words, and so glad that your cabin survived...many were not so lucky.
Oh yes pressure, it was alot I am sure!!!
What lake are you on up the trail?

Who is your Uncle? I am not sure where the farm was on the hagberg?
If you have read past posts, my son used to hunt up on the hagberg, actually last fall, he did spend one day up there hunting, and visiting...think more visiting, he loves to talk with people.

Well, Madd Maxx, just wanted to let you know that for the first time ever - on my way to work this morning - I saw a car with a bumper sticker that read: "I'd rather be driving a Titleist." Now, how is that for coincidence....I never heard the word until yesterday by you and now I see it on a bumper sticker. Oh, and below that in very soft blue writing in quotes it said: A ball used in golf.

I'm completely educated now....

Hope you are enjoying your day.
