A Beautiful Afternoon With Harper’s Chord

My heart be still, we actually had great weather on a Sunday afternoon . . .

[Harper’s Chord was coming to town, thus expecting an overflow crowd at the winery!  But for the first 45 minutes, the four of us usual regulars were treated to a private show!  We thinks the 1:00 start fooled everyone – usually showtime begins at 2:00.]

[The last time they were in town, Micah, the bass player, had been added for the first time. This time they along brought a drummer – Pat, high school class of ’65 (though at St. Cloud Cathedral).]

[Dave was recognized for his 70th b’day, so he and Alice went out and cut the asphalt.]

The Super did her job as well . . .

[Showing the group’s Medicare Fan Club (with two notable exceptions) was there in force, many of us sticking around for the entire 4-hour performance before heading home to bed!  But as Alice and Dave proved, we still have spunk!]

Natural Bridge:

[This is their signature song with which they usually end their performances . . . ]


[This is their last scheduled performance in Alex this year . . . so please write your congressman and senator!]

Before we go . . .

Thought some of you may enjoy our Bethany Hasz winning the state 1,600 (she won the 3,200 as well).  She and sister Megan usually finish 1 – 2 in these meets, but unfortunately Megan had to miss this year because of injury.  She should be healthy for cross-country in the fall:

The Journey Begins Thanks for joining me! This is the follow-up to the original, “alexandriacardinals.wordpress.com,” which overwhelmed the system’s ability to handle it any more. Thus, this is “Part 2.” As the original was initially described: 10-26-07-4 “It all began in a 5,000 watt radio station in Fresno, California” . . . wait a minute, that was Ted Baxter on the Mary Tyler Moore Show! Let’s see . . . oh yeah, it all began in 2003 when retirees, i.e., old people, in Alexandria, Minnesota, who had no desire to become snow birds, went looking for mid-winter entertainment here in the frozen tundra of West Central Minnesota. We discovered girls’ high school hockey, fell in love immediately, and it remains our favorite spectator sport to this day. Initially, and for several years, reports on these games were e-mailed to those who were actually snowbirds but wanted to keep abreast of things “back home.” It was ultimately decided a blog would be more efficient, and it evolved into a personal diary of many things that attracts tens of readers on occasion. It remains a source of personal mental therapy and has yet to elicit any lawsuits. ~ The Editor, May 9, 2014 p.s. The photo border around the blog is the Cardinal girls’ hockey team after just beating Breck for the state championship in 2008. It’s of the all-tournament team. The visible Breck player on the left is Milica McMillen, then an 8th-grader – she is now an All-American for the Gophers. The Roseau player in the stocking cap I believe is Mary Loken, who went on to play for UND; and the Cardinal player on the right, No. 3, is Abby Williams, the player we blame most for making us girls’ hockey fans who went on to play for Bemidji State. *********************************************************************************** Photos contained herein are available for personal use. All you have to do is double click on any of the photos and they will become full screen size. You can then save them into your personal “My Pictures” file. They make lovely parting or hostess gifts, or holiday gifts for such as Uncle Ernie who wants to see how his grand niece is doing on the hockey team. If any are sold for personal profit, however, to, for example, the Audubon Society, National Geographic, Sven’s Home Workshop Monthly, Curling By The Numbers, or the World Wrestling Federation, I only request that you make a donation to the charitable organization of your choice. You have two hours and fifteen minutes. Pencils ready? Begin! **********************************************************************************
