Focus of the Week:
Spring is finally here! Taco (Supreme) is
celebrating by playing with an empty soda pop bottle. I'm not
quite sure what everything here is, except that the yellow flower is
supposed to be a
trumpet lily and the lower image is a flowering fern variety.
The Houghton High School Band (Bjorn plays the
tuba) participated in the State's Competition last Friday at the Forest
Hill High School in Crystal Falls
the Week: 4/21/2001
We had rain, heavy at times, Friday night and almost all day
Saturday. Together with the accelerated thawing of winter
snow, it has caused widespread flooding. The Trap Rock River which
runs through our land, is no exception. From the looks of things
when these pictures were taken
(9 P.M. Saturday night), it will crest above the bridge -- our only way
out of here!
News of the Week:
Our latest family pet addition is an adorable male rat, Igor (as in
Stravinsky) - smart as a whip, and musical?! He came from Bjorn's biology teacher who still wants to use
him for stud service - to help produce offspring for snake food! In
the meantime we are caring for him and, as you can see, he is working
himself into our hearts, especially Donna's.
