BOTHA BOOSTER — Talk about another wet week, hopefully this will stop for a while and get the gravel roads straightened out and the water laying around in the fields, so the farmers can get out and get their land ready for planting. It was even a wet week with snow for the poor farmers that have cattle calving at this time. It’s hard to believe a little over a month a year ago, the ground was really dry.
We would like to wish Neil Thorsteinson a very happy belated birthday as his birthday was last Monday, April 24, hope you had a great one Neil.
