News headlines from the P&D that caught his eye today was about the closing of the Bonanza Restaurant. I guess we can still go to the Bonanza in St Cloud, MN.

Princeton did get the snow they predicted last Monday and Tuesday. It turned out Yankton also got a bit of snow that slowed things down a bit.

Dad was at the Dentists the other day and like the line in the old Alice Cooper song No More Mr Nice Guy his teeth are ok but his gums gotta go. It sounds like a couple of his fillings need to be replaced which is causing issues with his gums.

News headlines from the P&D started out the direction of today's conversion. There was a article about a petition for the Federal Prison Camp that caught his attention. 

Princeton is supposed to get some snow on Monday, but looks like Yankton should be fine.

Lori and I are planning on going to the movies this afternoon, but no such plans for Dad.

Snowfall was an early topic this morning. Yankton was just finishing up this morning, Princeton is expected to get a lot this evening.

Talked about the Teen Canteen, Tylkie (sp?) Pool Hall, and the Round Up Room.  Beansie Anderson loved to go on double dates.

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.
