Thank you, to everyone who made the Kettle River City picnic a success. Even though the weather was cold and gray, many people came out and enjoyed visiting with others.

One sunny summer day, a friend of my dad’s was driving down the highway when a carful of teenage boys decided to play a game with him. They would pass him and then slow down. When he would then pass them, they would again speed up, pass him, and slow down. They played this game for a while until my dad’s friend decided to teach them a lesson. Now, this man was an experienced stock car race driver, so he very slowly crept up onto their bumper and then started to accelerate. He was then pushing them and increasing his speed down the highway until he was going way over the speed limit before finally backing off. The boys then pulled off to the side of the road while he passed them for one last time. I wonder if they ever tried playing that game again.
