MEEKER — Somebody somewhere has paid researchers to study satellite photos of thousands of cows worldwide. Their conclusion? Cattle seem to spontaneously align their bodies in a north-south direction when resting or grazing. Apparently, when the cows come home, it’s because they have a sense of direction. No GPS required. Who pays for this stuff, anyway?
We’d like to wish a very happy birthday this week to Greg Rohn and Lon Denny, Aug. 29; Jean Welder and Ethan Overton, Aug. 30; Kelsey Tate, Ethel Starbuck and Lake Bullard, Aug. 31; Annie Purcell, Sept. 1; Larry Johnson, Sept. 2.
Happy anniversary to Kent and Marci Nielsen, Deanna and Bobby Lawson, Aug. 28; Darold and Solveig Nay, Aug. 29; Klark and Jewell Kindler, Jerry and Catherine Eliasen, Aug. 31.
Report is the leaves are starting to turn upriver, so schedule an afternoon drive for yourself to get out and enjoy the pleasant weather while we still have it. According to the Farmers’ Almanac, we’re in for “icy temperatures” in a couple months. Yippee.
