At Time Things Need To Come Into Your Neighborhood

Living in Bonners Ferry area. Things don't move all that much and there is a group of people who wants no change in our community.
I will be the first to confession time...I don't want to loose our small town feel.
At time things need to change. Our young people are leaving to work other places. I don't know anyone comon labor in our community even makes $15 an hour.

People are shocked around here I make $12 an hour.

WINCO is looking to put in a new store. I think either Bonners Ferry or Sandpoint would be good location. Although Sandpoint has a larger population base.
One needs to consider the money from Montana. I don't see any at all in Montana. Which would bring people from TROY and LIBBY 
Also there the Canadians who comes down from CRESTON and CRANBROOK to shop. There no WinCo in Canada.

At different time new business tried to come in and for different reason never made to our local community.
I never understood this. JOHN BIRCH didn't want any federal grant money to improve our community . I thought there main thing was to stop communism.
And the opposite of communism is capitalism.
At one time in our past, local John Birch put a stop for letting no new business into our area.

At different time at different local events I've heard the John Birch use term "SOCIALISM"quite freely.

Although I'm not sure how WinCo is funded when coming into a new communtiy. But here is a link to there FACEBOOK   page and were the heart is put in your town if you want a WinCo.

Minor Yuk

I got the minor case of the crud. I believe I rest up I should be ok. The flu is going around are area. But I believe I got a case of the bronchitis. Although I had a lot worst before.
So plenty of hot water. Statement time...I'm not a fan of cold water.

Today I got 3 letters in mail today from pen pal. Just think three letters one from Belleville Michigan, Hogoton Kansas, and Woodland California.

I took my camera and was going to do a short walk on the southside of Bonners Ferry. But I forgot to put in media card.
Some days are just like that.

I went to my T.O.P.S meeting and weigh in. Only one person in our group didn't loose weight. I lost one pound.

Thinking of Statement Using Six Vowels.

Before I went to work. I stop in at Super One to purchase something for our local food drive. For Human Right Day they park bus at each of our grocery store here in Bonners Ferry. There is three grocery stores in our town.
Well the goal is to fill up the three buses of food. It will be donate to our local food bank. Statement time...I find it sad that people have to use a food bank and we're one of the richest country in world.

So I picked a few items and gave them $3.00 cash.

A little after 12:30 in afternoon I stop in at Carrie, her and I was heading to Sandpoint to see her doctor for pain.
Usual this doctor is right on time. I figure she would have been in 10 to 20 minutes to have her meds up dated.
She was in for little over and hour. To find out they poke about. They are going to give her a shot toward the end of the month.

After her appointment we stop in three stores. Her in two and me in one of them. She purchase her husband Hershel a pipe. She want some hard candy which is at the dollar store, right next to the pipe place.
I ran into Yokes market to get a few items. They had tomatoes on sale for .98¢ a pound. I picked up three of them.

Tuesday I will be going to my weigh in at T.O.P.S and hope they got quite a bit of food in all three buses.

To Much Change Doesn't Go Over

Our local human right community which is between 3 to 5 members. Once a year we put an program to celebrate and promote Human rights.
So we tried something different this year. To put on an "Art Show" in year pass we had more of structure program.
The only thing we carried over from celebration from years past was the entertainment. There were two different pairs of people singing and playing there music instruments.
But then usual we have some essay done be the local school children. Which are read by them and a quest speaker.
This year the essay wasn't read or no quest speaker. This year we did a more laid back show. Actual there was quite a few artist who came and display there pieces.
Statement...our community isn't progress and any thing new or changes. People seem not to be very excepting of them.
what should been done is have the first hour and open house let people look and visit. Then the last hour have the essay read and guest speaker. Which would be more formal showing.
Maybe flip side would of been better. Formal show and then a lay back art show. Who know I just need to remember that our community isn't all that progressive.

Now I Need to Fill In the Blanks.

The only thing I need to do on South end of Bonners Ferry is to “Fill in the Blanks” . If your wondering what I mean.
I walked all the city street that is connected with highway 95. But there a few street that doesn't hook up directional with the highway.

Which I hope to soon finish up.

Yesterday I walk though the upper class trailer park. There right on the city line. Most of the trailer are newer double wides. Plus all of them have nice big yards. No junky place there. I notice 2 place are listed for sale.
There were some empty places. Not sure but with snow on ground you can see if a vehicle is coming and going.
With no sale or rent sign my first thought would be. “There snow birds” and headed south.

One thing they do have a nice view of the kootenai valley. Looking at Selkirk mountain range.

I haven't yet figure out but according to my pedometer. I took 5,455 steps which is not quite two and half mile. This site will let you HOW MANY STEPS EQUAL A MILE I don't wear my pedometer all the time.
But also I'm trying to learn how to use MAP PEDOMETER   but having trouble. I might try to find and easier one. Or give up on entirely.
Well if I walk two and half miles from my home. I would be out on highway 95 and I would guess almost down the bottom of what people call Peterson Hill.
