He came to one that wouldn't move, so old Ed, being helpful, jammed a line bar under the rail end and lifted up on it. Bad move#l: He should have put something under the bar, near the rail, to use as a fulcrum, so he would then be pushing down, instead of lifting. Bad move #2: He told Dum- dum "OK, now hit it." Yup, you guessed it; He swung the sledge and came down hard, right on top of the rail! With a terrific jar, it drove the rail and bar down out of Ed's hands. Ol' Ed was incredulous, he just couldn't believe such stupidity! As he stood there, slightly stooped over, glasses halfway down his nose, cradling his wet gloved hands, I could read his face like a book; in about 10 seconds, it went from pain and incredulity to anger and homicide, mingled with the knowl- edge he really couldn't do anything about it anyway, his cold, wet hands hurt too much. Finally, he uttered "You-- You-- (A long silence, remember it's the foreman's son) you -- Dummy I meant the tie plate!" It was so ridiculous, we all burst out laughing. To this day, I still laugh every time I think of it. Like I said, you had to be there. following concerned & responsible and businesses support the churches, and their activities.

Laura Knutson got the ball rolling, or.should I say, started digging in the dirt, so we got the flowers planted in the patio boxes. Taunya Buchholz, Annette Mischke, and Nancy Nelson teamed up Thursday to plant the front area. We are look- ing forward to all the col- orful flowers this sum- mer. Flossie Gertner. one of our residents, asked sev- eral of our staff members this morning, "Who was president when you were born?" I immediately said, "Roosevelt." But in checking the history book, I found out that he died a month and a half before my birthday so Truman was actually president. That simple question got a lot of inter- esting conversation going. Some of us may need to take a history class to hone the old memory. Joan DesLauriers, the daughter of one of our residents, and also a vol- unteer here at the facili- ty, comes in weekly to help with Bingo and other games and plays the piano on the week- end. A few months ago, Joan acquired a Shihtzu named Benji, whom she has been bringing on some of her visits. Recertly, a granddaugh- ter of one of our residents met and saw Joan and told her how much her grandmother enjoyed Benji's visits. Other volunteers assisting with activities included Anna Margaret Warner with Sing Along, Carolyn Benson with vis- its and manicures, Judy Tighe with Chit Chat, and Jane Schultz and Grace Jensen with Thursday evening Bingo. St. Anthony's Catholic youth led Bingo Wednesday evening. Hairsetters were Virginia Schneider, Jane Schultz, Lois Williams, Elffie Kopperud, Mary Kirchner, Gerry Anderson, and Kathie Christians. Lillian Baarstad played the piano for the residents Saturday afternoon. Conducting worship services the past two weeks were Pastor Michael Stangeland of Old Westbrook Lutheran with Shirley Iverson playing the piano, and Pastor Giese of Trinity Lutheran. We extend greetings to Ethel Cohrs and Verna Severson, both recently celebrated birthdays with family and friends.

Headache Awareness Week Are you one of the 45 million Americans who suf- fer from recurring headaches? You owe it to yourself to learn more about the cause and effect of your headaches. The more you understand about your headache and what triggers it, the better you will be able to communicate with your physician. Your local physi- cians recommend that you keep a "headache diary". Record when your attacks occur, length and severity, and how you treat them. In our country, an excess of 4 billion dollars will be spent annually on over-the-count- er-pain relievers; with mini- mal relief. The term "migraine" headache may be over-used to describe all headaches, when in fact, there are three categories of headaches. Tension-type headaches account for approximately 78 percent of all headaches. The pain is typically generalized all over the head, focusing in the area where the muscles of the head and neck meet. Sufferers may awaken with this pain, and experience sleep disorder from the fre- quency. A negative to self- medicating for this type of pain is that an addiction to pain relieving drugs may develop. A rebound headache is the extension of this prob- Chicken Pickin' Call and schedule a date for your chicRens to be cleaned! Moon's Meats & Sausage 507-831-3511 Windom, MN. lem. Rebound headaches come from the pattern of tak- ing acute headache medica- tion too often, (more than two days per week), or in excess of recommended dosage. Migraine headaches begin as a dull ache and then progress into a constant, throbbing and acute pain. The pain is usually localized in certain areas such as the temples, front or back of one or both sides of the head. When the length of the migraine endures, nausea, vomiting and sensitivity to light and noise may occur. Certain physical or environ- mental factors, such as foods, weather, stress or hor- monal imbalance can "trig- ger" a migraine. Triggers are different for everyone, so it is important to make note of what triggers your individ- ual pain. This is important to your health care provider when diagnosing your case. The third, and most severe type is a Cluster headache. This pain is called Cluster headache because the attacks come in groups. The pain arrives with little or no warning, and is usual- ly on one side of the head. Believed to be caused by chemical reactions in the brain, the cluster headache may be accompanied by tear- ing or bloodshot eyes and a runny nose. Your physician should be consulted for these symptoms, as treatment involves prescription medi- cine and oxygen. When communicating with your physician, remem- ber to be honest about all current medications and other medical conditions. Prepare for a dialogue with your physician, by keeping a headache diary. Have rea- sonable expectations about your treatment, and focus on solutions. 146.39 Acre Farm for Sale (Galvin Farm) ON SEALED BIDS S ,ED BIDS (with the privilege of increasing same) will be received at the office of Murrayland Agency, Inc., 141 Mill St., P.O. 176, Currie, MN 56123 up to 9:30 a.m. on Monday, June 21, 2004.
