Fanning Files

By Me In a little less than one week, I will be sitting on a beach in Mexico holding a drink in one hand, and Mrs. Me next to Me. It will be the first time in her life that Mrs. Me will have been outside the boarders of the United States, and the...

 

Fanning Files

By Me In the time since our grandson has been born, I think I have only had to change two diapers. And only wet ones… I’m okay with that. It’s incredible that little kids, when they are sick, often times don’t let it stop them from going...

 

Fanning Files

By Me I came across this little gem on FB, and thought it would be fun to share…Thanks mom! 10 FUN FACTS You can’t see your ears without a mirror. You can’t count your hair. You can’t breathe...

 

Fanning Files

By Me My mom keeps a picture of my dad on an end table next to the chair he used to sit in. I know why it’s there. So when she looks from her chair in the direction she looked for so many years she...

 

Fanning Files

By Me While driving home from La Crosse a while back, my wife in the copilot seat, I heard her cry out, “THAT’S JUST NOT RIGHT. WHO DOES THAT?” With my foot ready to slam on the brake, I looked around expecting to see someone riding their bike...

 

Fanning Files

By Me It seems like this time of year I usually get a bit nostalgic. I was remembering our first real family vacation, to Colorado and back through South Dakota, Custer State Park, Wind Cave, Mt. Rushmore and all the scenery that goes along with the...

 

Fanning Files

By Me Sunday afternoon we had settled in to watch the Pack hoping for another win, like we have done every other year. I remember in the past how annoying it was to get a phone call in the middle of the game, only to find out it was a recorded...

 

Fanning Files

By Me I have to admit, I enjoy seeing all the family pictures shared on Facebook of cutting down the Christmas Tree. This will be the third year we have set up an artificial version, but I have many fond memories of our annual family outings from...

 

Fanning Files

By Me Thanksgiving (def.) - an annual national holiday marked by religious observances and a traditional meal including turkey. The holiday commemorates a harvest festival celebrated by the Pilgrims in 1621 and is held in the US on the fourth...

 

Fanning Files

By Me There are no words, there is no comfort, and peace will not come for a long time – Perhaps never completely. We all have scars from our past that never completely heal. A skinned knee from a fall, a cut from a sword fight with tree branches....

 

Fanning Files

By Me Growing up there always seemed to be cousins around. We didn’t very often go anywhere alone, and when we were old enough our bicycles were the typical source of our mobility. We rode to each other’s houses, the park and, during the summer,...

 

Fanning Files

By Me It’s been just over one year since I started the journey down a new path. It has been one that has offered some new opportunities and some difficult challenges. In December of 1998 Mrs. Me and Me took over ownership of the Cashton Record. We...

 

Fanning Files

By Me It’s been two years since I’ve been able to talk to my father, but I have memories that will last a lifetime. He was the greatest man I have ever known. Life goes on, and there is going to b...

 

Fanning Files

By Me I remember when I was much younger, riding my motorcycle on Christmas Day. It was an unusual warm spell that lasted one day. I think that same year I rode on New Year’s Day also. That was not a normal occurrence, but it was fun. I woke up...

 

Fanning Files

By Me Here we are in the age of Facebook and, somehow, we seem to be in danger of reaching the point of no return. The realm of only black and white, where there is no gray. It may be a black hole that we cannot pull ourselves out of if we are not...

 

Fanning Files

By Me I remember my first taste of Sun Drop. It came out of a vending machine at an archery range in Sparta that had been set up in an old warehouse down by the railroad tracks. I was about 12 years old, and the vending machine was the kind where one...

 

Fanning Files

By Me Why it is most of us like to remember back to our childhood? Is it because it was a time in our life that we really didn’t have much to worry about? It’s funny how the farther we look back, the younger we were, and the more free we felt....

 

Fanning Files

By Me I woke up Monday morning and logged into Facebook to see if there were any new pictures of my grandson, and this popped up... …This is the USA. We eat meat. We drink Beer. We own guns. We spea...

 

Fanning Files

By Me Last Saturday I finally got around to cleaning out some of the garage, a job that was long overdue. For the past 10 years, or so, I have been finding places to put things that, as it turns out, didn’t really need to be saved. But while...

 

Fanning Files

By Me When I looked at the top of the pages of this week’s paper, published on September 11, 2019, it instantly reminded Me of 2001. Eighteen years ago the attacks on American soil took place,...

 

Fanning Files

By Me December will mark the 21st year since Mrs. Me and Me bought the Cashton Record, and the 20th year we have lived in Cashton. It’s remarkable to think back and realize how much has changed, and how much has stayed the same. But I remember...

 

Fanning Files

By Me Denying climate change, and man’s hand in it, most say is denying science. I suppose we could debate that, but for those who still accept mankind is contributing to the changing global climate will likely not be persuaded otherwise. Then ther...

 

Fanning Files

By Me A wide grin stretched across a small child’s face as he looked down and saw the rooftops of his neighborhood. It was the middle of the night and silent, with the exception of a single dog that had spotted him and began to bark. It was neither...

 

Fanning Files

By Me A philosopher stood atop the mountain and proclaimed, “It’s all down hill from here.” I suppose I am over the hill, but the idea that I am on the downhill side of my life seems ridiculous. Downhill implies, “easier”, and that is not...

 

Fanning Files

By Me The recent mass murders that occurred in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, that left nearly 30 dead and over 50 injured, were only slightly less tragic than some. Neither involve a school full of children. The gunman in Texas was targeting Mexi...
