We are getting hot, humid weather with a 20mph SW wind that is gusting to 28mph. Out in the wind, the heat is not quite so oppressive as it has been without it. Current data and some past days for weather for Winner, South Dakota are available at link below.
Short on news here. Day before yesterday an old friend from high school and college called and said he was driving through here on his way west. I had a fresh pot of coffee cooking so we had a cup and ate some cookies and oatmeal bars as we talked for about two hours. Nothing special about the grub, but good to see him again. It has been quite a few years since we had seen each other.
Yesterday was a day for a funeral memorial for a woman described by her grandchildren as a "feisty lady". I guess when you were born in Tripp County log cabin in 1916 and you can stick around until you are 98 and have seven children and dozens of grand children and great grandchildren, you have a right to be feisty...or maybe must be feisty just to survive. Myrtle (DuBray) Kewley may she rest in peace.
From the KWYR radio website: "Memorial services for 98 year old Myrtle Kewley of North Port, Florida formerly of Winner will be held on Friday, July 31 11am at Mason Funeral Home in Winner. Burial will be in the Winner Cemetery,"
