This is all I've got to say about today's news. You figure out the riddle.
Random thoughts on life in western North Dakota with specific emphasis on the Little Missouri River and Missouri River watersheds. Also features news from Red Oak House, book reviews, and photographs from the garden. I write when I feel like it. I recognize that the choice of the name of my blog could be characterized as naughty. My mistakes are my own. UnHeralded.fish picks up my blogs, edits beautifully, and you can subscribe to UnHeralded.fish feeds if you wish.

A new book from my husband
This passage in the introduction spoke to me.
"As a child, I didn't like the city with all the cars, so many buildings, and people rushing down the sidewalks; hurried and unfriendly, they seemed like they were in a rush going somewhere they did not wish to reach. They only looked down or off into the air with stares that looked afraid, distracted, or troubled with an uneasy urgency. I wasn't related to any of them, and they seemed not to want to be a friend. I didn't want to live there. The stories were so full with so much to buy; I didn't think they would ever run out. And the sky was so gloomy and grey, as if it didn't like what was going on. I missed my grandmothers and wanted to go home." Lois Red Elk Why I Return to Makoce Many Voice Press, c2015

Dear Blog, I have a stove for sale.
Works good (well, the center Jenn Air doesn't work anymore but the burners and oven all get hot so there's the important point). Very clean. Includes original cookbook and the original receipt. Must pick up and pay cash.
Then I discover these awesome lighted tweezers. Made in China. Shipped here so I could buy in Bismarck. $4.99
Can't help but

So I figured out mobile blogging on my Google phone. It's a Google day.
I had at least one friend who thought perhaps I had organized the Bismarck March because I had done something so simple as invite him on Facebook.
The empowerment of technology is a wonderment. We are connected. Let's treat each other with an acknowledgement of that. Pretty please.
