An article about Federal Budget cuts and the possibility of the Yankton Prison closing came up several times.

He recalled a time when he and a friend (couldn't recall his name) where at Gurney's and saw some kind of an entertainment show. Wasn't sure why but Dad and his Buddy were the only two there.

The Kiwanis is having a supper tonight, perhaps at the Senior Center.

In the Yankton P&D an article about replacing the Pine Street Bridge (P & D Pine Street Bridge article) this was the bridge that Dad smoked his first cigarette.

When he was in the Army during the Korean Conflict he would receive Cigarettes, and one time he got a six pack of beer. When he got the beer he was all set to partake in the fine beverage when a buddy of his showed up thus having to share his beer with him.

For those of you who are watching the Olympics per Dad the weather in Korea is the same as South Dakota.

I managed to gather all our tax documents together to move forward with that process no thanks to the US Post Office. 

Yankton still has snow but not the cold temperatures that we in Minnesota are experiencing.

Who was the owner of the popcorn shop (the same side of the street as the post office NOT the one next to the Dakota Theater) he used to give Dad and his buddies credit for the popcorn purchases.

Came through the big snowstorm without much problems Didn't recall ever having any problems with Federal Government shut downs. Went through the current movie options in Yankton, nothing really sprung out as a must see. Talked about Don Vaneps dog Bowser.

One day before the big snow storm and the big football game. Didn't feel to worried about the upcoming snow, and had no interest in the football game outcome.

Teachers in the old day's could get away with a lot more than they can today.

Dad had one last Christmas Party to go to hosted by the First Dakota National Bank. It will be at Minerva's

He got over 60 birthday cards wishing him a Happy Birthday.

It was a little warmer in Yankton than in Princeton. Yankton was about 3 above zero, where in Princeton it was 14 below zero. The temperature will not slow either of us down from getting out and doing stuff. Dad mentioned the weather was a reason he didn't wan't to become a letter carrier.

Played a little bit of The Hut-Sut song from the 1940's. I heard it on a movie I was watching and now it has been an ear worm to me. He recognized as being a popular song in the day.
