    Just wanted to say "Hello" to all. From other postings it seems this chit chat board was missed. I am hoping to enjoy, and so far the jokes have been great. :)

    Talk to everyone later.
    Take care and Kitten hugs,
    Blessed Be,

    Yes, I only live about 1/2 hr from Decorah and you are one up on me. I haven't been to a Nordic Fest yet. All the family but me.

    I guess I will have to get there, everyone is always telling me how great it is.

    Nice to meet you. So I take you are maybe Norweigen then? I know quite a few from the area. My husband managed a motel in Decorah for quite awhile and my step-daughter grew up there until she was 10. Oh! and ya know they have the walmart there!

    Take care and Kitten Hugs,

    Can't remember when Nordic Fest is. July or August, I guess.

    The main building of the Versterheim (Western Home) museum was originally a luxury hotel built in l876, the same year as Custer's Last Stand and the James-Younger bank robbery

    in Northfield, Minnesota. The intrepid pioneers in Northfield shot the gang to pieces. One of the posse members who captured the fleeing Younger brothers was still alive when I was young.

    So you see, history is just around the corner.

    Wow I learned something today, and that is pretty amazing lately.

    I read your profile where you talk about prickles and the tv static. Finally a therapy I can afford. I am going to start this today.

    I am glad you have that on your profile, and glad it helps.

    Oh and thanks for the history, very interesting to know all that was so close. I will have to show my husband he is a great history buff.

    Take care and kitten hugs,
