Swamp Castle update

The snow hasn't stopped progress on the house. The prow is taking shape, and now the Kronsch boys are shingling.

Visit with Aunt Olla

Yesterday I ran to Fargo to do some house errands and decided to call Aunt Olla to see if she wanted to go out for lunch. That was fine. We went uptown to the Classic Diner in Twin Valley, a completely pleasant place.

Olla has been having problems, which started, she said, when she had a nightmare a couple of months ago and fell out off bed, hitting her head on the bedstand. The fall gave her two black eyes. Since then, her brain hasn't been right, she said, although she sounded plenty good when we were having lunch.
