i actually lived in Barnesville during school, when i moved to Fargo i lived above the Bismarck bar on Broadway for a couple of years, about 150 feet from the railroad tracks...not quite as bad as Elwood's apartment in Blues Brothers, but pretty interesting none the less

lets see...drit means shit, oof-dah =oh damn, oof-dah may = well god damn...that's about all the old drunken norwegian i can remember...i miss lefse, the old lady across the road and i had a deal, i would rake her lawn, and shovel her sidewalk, and she'd keep me supplied with fresh lefse...which is potato flour crepes...may not sound that good, but when they're nice and warm, with a little butter and cinnamon sugar...
and Barnesville was the county seat...so we had the fair every summer, 4 blocks from my house.
when i got old enough i started working for them when they came to town, helped them set up, and tear down, and ran a game a couple of years...i was one of the few kids i know who would come home from the fair with more money than i went with

I like old ethnic areas of the United States I grew up in a area where German, Irish, Polish and Dutch neighborhoods all came together. Though far from there prime, the old world influence is everywhere.

I know that downtown area around the Black bldg that houses the Forum. My Dad worked there. I had relatives in Barnesville. Didn't like them 50 years ago...I'm sure nothing changed. Good pheasant hunting there till they all froze to death.
Cheers,
JD

there were very few people i liked in Barnesville...when Stephen King talks about Derry, i see Barnesville in my head....
it wasn't that bad, but like any town, there was dirty laundry, and occasionally it got blown off that private line in the backyard out into the middle of main street...

Nice use of metaphor. Mostly I remember my big Sis got knocked up by a Frenchman from Barnesville. I liked New York Mills...full of Icelanders and they had a public sauna that we used to go to.

70's Flashback....

Riley Wooten Double VooDoo.
The crashed unit was covered in tissue paper and dope. :eyesmoke:

I built this structure in the early 70's. Covered it in the 90's with high-tech monokote. :leaf:

I don't have a hobby, but I do have a few skills that have lead me to a variety of things to use up my free hours... Casting different metals using lost wax and sand casting, and i do small carvings.. I also use a couple homemade vacuum forming machine to make things out of abs plastic.....
Here's a few of my lost wax castings. Rings and bracelet, the small elephant was cut in half to make the catch.. I cut and polished the lapis, and the eye of the horse is a small ruby.. A friend wanted a handle for this old blade.. He past and never got to see it..

I'm gonna bump this old thread.. There's gotta be a few of you forced to stay a home, and are stir crazy enough to pick up your old hobbies.. Or start new ones.. Jigsaw puzzles get old really fast... The garage has always been a make do, last resort man/woman cave. A place to just be alone with yourself, and be occupied with something that provides a temporary reality escape..
