Visiting, and some groaners


The Prairie Lutheran Parish Service for Jan. 17 will be at 9:30 a.m. at Trinity Lutheran in Carthage. Stay in your warm car and listen to the service transmitted over the radio.

The blood drive originally scheduled in January has been rescheduled for March.

John Meligan of Pierre visited last Monday with Shirley Stroud.

Voni Durant flew home last Monday after spending the Christmas and New Year’s holidays with Rick and Deb Telles in Tempe, Ariz. Sandie and Tom Jungers of Delta, Colo., surprised Voni with a visit. Voni also visited with grandchildren and spouses and great grandchildren and Ed and DeEtte Goss.

Recent visitors with Harriet Hattervig were Robin Hattervig and Lisa and Mark Hinkley.

Mark and Colette Anderson, Bill and Angie Nibbelink, Flandreau, and the Blaine Anderson family of Huron spent Christmas and New Years with Brice and Amy Anderson in Reno, Nev. Also joining them were Amy’s daughter Aubrey, Richard and Elaina Bullard, Sacramento, Calif., her son Kyler Cavin of Boise, Idaho, and friend Sage Will of Redding, Calif. Mark and Colette report they had excellent driving conditions.

Just for fun

For fun this week, here are some jokes found in a 1913 Byrsa (The Carthage High School yearbook)

Mrs. Fidget: What’s that noise I hear down in the library?
Mr. Fidget: Must be history repeating itself, go to sleep!

A multimillionaire in a fashionable restaurant pointed to a line on the menu and said to the waiter, “I’ll have some of that please.”

“I’m sorry, sir,” said the waiter, “but the band is playing that.”

Student: I’m trying my best to get ahead.
Teacher: Everybody knows you need one.

Old Gent: I want to get a copy of your paper for a week back.
Editor: Hadn’t you better try a porous plaster?”

Stranger: Do you know a man around here with one leg named Jones?
Boy: What’s the name of his other leg?
