Well, the high school winter sports season is over, so . . .
Hi, do you know who we are? If not, see answer at the bottom (photo on loan from FB).
[It’s pizza night at The Depot. BTW, that fatigue jacket is older than Marco Rubio. And it spent two years at USASTRATCOM, Long Lines Battalion, Fort Buckner, Sukiran, Okinawa . . . and 3 months after it left there, the U.S. turned Okinawa over to Japan. Coincidence? I think not! For history buffs, Okinawa didn’t care for that either – they wanted total independence. Okinawans are not Japanese – they are Ryukyuans, as Okinawa is the largest of the Ryukyu Islands. Just thought you may want to know.]
[Well, it was National ‘pi’ Day!]
[Well, it was National “work on your taxes” Day!]
[At SAWA with Enterprise, with Jim, a recent escapee from Arizona, and Kevin.]
March 19 – The Last Day of Winter
March 20 – The First Day of Spring
[And later that day . . . woo! woo! Gopher women’s hockey team brings pride to the Minnesota sports scene with yet another national title (Strib photo).]
March 22 – Jami’s Birthday and Empty Bowls
[But she began the day with Mom and Dad helping out at Brad’s, “some assembly” was required.]
[Then on to “Empty Bowls” at the high school, an annual fund raiser with the goal to feed 100 people. And at the new high school, it comes with entertainment – here Josie Nelson.]
[Then The Carolers, with Josie taking up her spot on the far right.]
[And we assume belly dancing, because of increased interest, will be offered as a course option beginning at the kindergarten level.]
[I’m a lumberjack and I’m OK!]
[Yes, the Super, once again, scored in a silent auction.]
[Back home, a birthday salute to Jami! We dusted off a bottle of Carlos Creek port that I’m sure we’d had on hand for over 10 years.]
[Though the cork totally crumbled upon opening, we pronounced the product to be quite tasty!]
[We’re port drinking lumberjacks and we’re OK!]
[How ’bout them empty bowls? The students make these and purchase is your ticket to entry. Thanks to Abby Pohlen and Mikayla for these two (as signed on the bottom).]
[Taking full advantage of half-price bottle night at SAWA, the Super revels in a $59.00 bottle of Rombauer zinfandel!]
[While we enjoyed the music stylings of Erik Schultz, just returned from running away from winter to Arizona for three months, and Tom Mulder.]
[Despite a lonely three months apart, they opined performing together again was just like riding a bike.]
[“Woman II” by David Weatherly of Elbow Lake – part of the art display at SAWA. I immediately pronounced “her” to be my sister-in-law, Karen.]
[And, yes, several others agreed!]
[ICE OUT on beautiful Lake Darling, about a month ahead of “normal.”]
[That night with Finestra at SAWA, with Jay (hiding behind the speaker), Arlen, and Wally.]
[Not to be outdone by Karen, a similarity between these two? “Old Man in Hat,” also by David Weatherly.]
[A full moon over the newly ice free beautiful Lake Darling. The 2nd photo is an enhancement of the 1st.]
Answer: Rachel Banham, Gopher star, with Kendall Kohler and Macy Hatlestad, the Cardinals starting backcourt.
