Blog of Note Today

Wooden glasses. Picked up at a garage sale.


Life at Golden Grain Farm is mentioned on the Words of Wisdom webpage (thank you kindly, folks) and I’ve been asked to link to three entries that I consider my best. Heh! Easier said than done, as my entries don’t adhere to themes nor are they given much more thought than what it takes to dash ‘em off and be done with 'em. For readers visiting this page for the first time, I’ve simply chosen three entries that might give a taste of what you’ll find here and that didn't require me to read too far back:

Sneaky Bugger, in which my sweetheart pulls a fast one.

The Corn is as High as an Elephant’s Eye, in which, in spite of loss and change, life seems pretty good.

White Knucklin’, in which I take a drive with Everett, age 17, and offer a glimpse of son Emil, age 21.


  1. Congratulations on your BON day! just came from WOW to say hi and read your suggested posts - I am very fond of Canada, my best friend lives in Vancouver and have had the opportunity to experience the life of a Vancouverite with her and her family. Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. I had read the two newest, and in spite of not having read the last one, I felt like I had. I must be getting to know you.

  3. You earned this BON moment ~ your voice comes through your writing!

  4. congratulations!!! I loved the Corn is as High as an Elephant's Eye. I never know quite what to expect when I visit, but it's always good!

    I really like the Tarot and What do I need to know today on your sidebar. I have practiced the Tarot for years, on myself and others, and was interested in your interpretation of the five of cups. Well done!

  5. Happy BoN day!

    I lived in Quebec and Ontario for a little while. There were things I really loved when I was living in rural Quebec, outside of Montreal.

    I've never been to Saskatchewan, though. But I hear it's beautiful!

  6. Congratulations on your BON. I was just on the Prairies last June. Why didn't anyone tell me that 80% of the landscape was beautiful blue sky! My great grandparents had a homestead close to Viking, Alberta. I love your blog.I have similar glasses that I bought at the Russian store in Toronto. I've decided to follow you. Heather

  7. Hi Katrinka! I'm here from WOW and so happy to find you. Your stories are fun to read. I'll be back for more.
