Section A - Oakes Times, Thursday, January 5, 2011 5 [WELCOME 2012. It is time to start a new year. Remember to use the new date on checks etc. It gets to be a lean- iqg period too. There was a time in my life that 2012 seemed so unreachable bgt here I am and with the great start we have had with the weather looks good, The weatherman is telling us tKat the temperatures will rise each &iy as the days progress and no snow to speak of at the present time. There islonly one worry and that is what kind of a spring will we have. Will it be dry, t6o wet, too cold or what? Time will tell and as we are not in control have t o handle what we get, right?? The New Year's weekend was pret- i[ quiet in this community. What is that a sign of?. Advanced age among us or just being tired from the Christmas holidays. Another good question but life will go on without a big blast on New Year's Eve and maybe the Fourth of July is a better reason and time to celebrate. Think on that one.

Canine Charlie and I are still visiting my sister, Judy, in Oklahoma. Charlie has made it very clear that he's look- ing for his playmate Miley. He gets his leash, drags it noisily across the floor and drops it at my feet. Then he stands there pleading with his eyes, asking me to take him out. Since I am very obedi- ent I put his leash on him, take a hold of. the other end and out the front door we go. Once outside Charlie trots down the sidewalk a few steps, turns his head to the right and then stops. Something's out of order. This isn't Sixth Street North in Oakes, North Dakota. He can't see the Kelly house down at the end of the block. In fact, Judy's house is not on a grid with blocks. It's on a circle, all the more confusing. Still, it would be good for Charlie to take a walk so I coax him, "Come on, Charlie. Let's go!" But he doesn't budge. He turns around and scurries back indoors pulling me behind him. After a week or so Charlie was rest- less. Judy's dog is too big for wrestle and roll. The cats are just the right size for Charlie but they don't play wrestle and roll, hide and seek or fetch the way dogs do. Charlie began to mope. Judy suggested we take him to the dog park, a fenced in public area where dog own- ers can take their canines for a ran. "Maybe he can find a friend there," she the section for small dogs is smaller than the area for big dogs. Charlie got quite excited when he looked out the car win- dow and saw the canines running and barking. Blondie was so happy that she leapt over Judy to get out the door. Blondie knew the routine so she went straight for the gate leading to the big dogs. Charlie and I held back a bit to survey the situation before going into the small dog area. There were only a few little dogs and Top Dog Charlie became shy. He came and stood by my feet. Then a lady came with two dogs. One of them looked like Patches, Ginny and Leo running over to the Patches look-a-like anticipating a friendly response. But the Patches look-a-like didn't know he was Patches and so Charlie had to put on the brakes. He deflated like a bal- loon and came back to stand by my feet. He was clearly disappointed. His head and tail were drooping. The dog park was a nice big play area so Charlie got to mn and play chase with a few dogs. He kept looking around for a little copper colored friend named Miley but she wasn't there. We played a game of fetch before the sun hung low in the sky and Judy and I got chilly. Everybody was ready to leave except Blondie. She could have played for several hours. "Well," said Judy, "Charlie didn't find a friend but I have another idea. We'll take him to Annie's Ruff House. I'm sure he'll find a friend there." Next Week: Annie's Ruff House where a dog can be a DOG! Bison! Saturday, January 7 U Texas the Black Hills on December 28.

Marian Johnson was a Tuesday sup- per guest at the home of Shirley Strutz, rural Oakes. She also had a good visit with Marcie Strutz an Cindi Rains, E1 Paso, Texas. Marian was an over- night guest at the home of Ethel Karas, Oakes and left for home, Wednesday afternoon. Kelly and Sharon Cooper left on Friday for Minot, N.D. where they picked up Sharon's mother, Hilda Heit and continued on to the home of Sha- ron's sister Pat and Dewey Otto, Beu- lah, N.D. They celebrated Christmas and New Years at the Otto home and left for home Sunday. En route home they stopped in Bismarck and did Carl, Leigh and Kyle Delahoyde, Oakes Ramona and Dwight Krapp Cincinnati, Ohio and Nancy Mathews all spent some time at the Dan and Phyllis Delaboyde home New Year's Day. What about those New Year's reso- lutions? Anyone make any? I didn't as they always get broken and in variably not too far into the New Year. By now I know what I should or shouldn't do and it has been a losing battle for a lot of years so to me it is a waste of time. At least for me. Not bragging though as I admire anyone who can make and stick to them. Especially the ones that make a huge difference in a life. Have a good week and a belated HAPPY NEW YEAR to all.
