Wednesday, September 19, 2018:   Mark was making the rounds of radio stations in Brainerd telling the story of writing competitions sponsored by the Veterans of Foreign Wars.  They include the Patriot's Pen where students in grades 6-8 write a 300 - 400 word essay with the theme, "Why My Vote Matters."  The other is Voice of Democracy.  Students in grades 9-12 write and read a 3-5 minute essay titled, "Why My Vote Matters."  Details at BrainerdVFW.org until October 31 when the competition ends.  Mark is a member of the Brainerd VFW.  He is seen here on KLIZ-FM.  Mark was also interviewed on KUAL-FM and B93-FM that day.

Friday, September 21, 2018: 
The Dynamic Duo of Mark and Paula went to the Main Street Ale House in Nisswa, Minnesota, for dinner. 
It was Paula's birthday.  She was 39, again!!  Imagine that with 40 years of marriage.
A dessert special that night was what they described as a cookie with ice cream and much more. 
Well, it was more than enough for three people.  Even a turtle outside thought it looked and smelled good.

Quote of the day:     It is amazing how fast time flies.   Mark    < Back to previous story Ahead to next story >
