Today I received some paperwork in the mail from the bank up in Minot. Enclosed were the details of every transaction my lot and home have been through since the large plot of land was allocated to develop the city of Minot in 1887. It has all the owner’s names, including one entry in 1920 with “… a widow” after her name. The 150+ acreage was first purchased for $150.00. Oh how far our dollar has fallen in value since.
Larry is flying down on Thursday to help me move. Just one week! I haven’t seen him in over a month. Hopefully my cold weather parka arrives soon; the high is expected to be three degrees in North Dakota this week. It’s still fall!
