On Wednesday, May 29 Lori and Lugard Leier drove to Bismarck to pick up Annette Leier and Frank Ecstice who flew in from Anchorage, Alaska. The family then gathered at Bruce and Linda Horner’s in Mandan to visit and have some saucy meatballs before they drove to the Braddock farm.

George Bohlin’s sisters Marge Eslinger and Lucille Shea of Bismarck and his niece Norma had dinner at George’s one day last week. Enroute home they stopped for refreshments at Hager’s Bar because George only serves coffee! They also visited St. Katherine’s cemetery.

Lack of will power and drive cause more failures than lack of intelligence and ability.

Happy Father’s Day to all the dads.

Have a good week.
