now, hasn’t this been some interesting weather as of
late, darn near as cold here as anywhere in the entire country
this morning. It will take awhile to melt off this 10 plus
inches of snow and ice with these temps. A supposed warming
trend is to arrive first of the week so hopefully the roads
will clear up soon, second worse storm on record according
to the experts. Set another state record by closing three turnpikes
at the same time, probably give them an excuse to hike the
rates due to lost revenue and maintenance cost. Spent last
Thursday cleaning off the couple inches of white stuff then
chipping up the underneath ice off the drive, that was a fun
project that consumed an afternoon. First thing Friday got
after it with the snow shovel, took several hours but it all
came up clean as the concrete got some heat into it before
the big snow hit. Have a nice dry, clean driveway and nowhere
to go. Living on a hill the street in front is a favorite with
the neighborhood kids of all sizes, they have a couple pretty
fast runs worked in already, speed up more with a little sun
GOING ON, this will be a shock to most but Madam VP has been
dethroned as the
“Queen of Cookies” the crown now sits atop a neighbor lady. Veronica
is hotly contesting the issue on the grounds of unfair competition, fresh out
of the oven versus several days in transit. The judges say with out comparable
evidence the ruling stands, for now.
present have no definite information regarding any area upcoming
events. Contact the other SC state reps soon and get an idea
of who’s planning what and where for next year, hope
to have that information for the next edition.
know if Tracy and the MO folks made it to there primitive deer
hunt this weekend due to the road conditions and severe cold,
had hoped to be in the deer woods myself.
NEW, received my Museum of the Fur Trade quarterly the other
day. They combined the fall and winter issues to produce a
very spectacular exhibit catalog of the new Mountain Man exhibit
that is open thru 2007. Looks like I’ll have to make
that put off trip to Chadron next year to see the exhibit in
person. Have ordered a couple new titles from the Museum library
that look very interesting, give them the once over when they
arrive and let you know.
“Tater” Everhart has posted a preliminary schedule for the National
Gathering on the CoHT message boards, if anyone would like to volunteer to
do a presentation please contact Tater to work out scheduling. Please remember
we are guests of Ft Osage and Jackson County so put on that PC smiley face
and offer to help out any way possible, it would be greatly appreciated by
the fine folks at the Fort.
OLD, well not much besides this white stuff. Received Bryant’s
latest Arkansas newsletter with a fine write up on the “Ladies
Only” event held at the Cadron Blockhouse, sounds like
the ladies had a great weekend with a lot of activities and
experimentation. It is my understanding this event is to be
an ever expanding annual event.

for details. The OK state rep position is still up for grabs,
just had it tuned up and winterized.
ACTIVITES, the weather has definitely caused problems for the
last weekend of deer season we do have the doe only weekend
coming up end of the month though.
BOOK REVIEW, well I’ve finished
up a couple good ones just haven’t cleaned up any notes

with a prosperous New Year.
