Linda Booth wins hospital auxiliary Valentines draw

No one was more surprised than Linda Booth, when she received the phone call on Valentine’s Day, saying-she had won $3,812.50 in the Valentine’s LVH 50/50 cash draw. She said, ”I was in disbelief and shocked!” Linda often buys tickets, never expecting to win but supporting so many worthy causes in our district. Linda plans on using her winnings to travel to Ottawa and Edmonton to visit family this summer. All monies raised will help to purchase equipment for the LaVerendrye Hospital. Congratulations Linda on your winnings!

It is hopeful a coffee gathering may take place in late March. The coffee gathering have been very well attended and enjoyed by many. Thanks to all who have supported this up and coming Seniors Group.

Robin’s 2 cents

A farmer named Clyde had a tractor accident. In court the trucking company’s fancy, hot shot lawyer, was questioning Clyde. “Didn’t you say, at the scene of the accident, ‘I’m fine’?” asked the lawyer.

Clyde says, “Well, yes, I’ll tell you what happened. I had just loaded Bessie, into the …”

“I didn’t ask you for any details,” the lawyer interrupted. Just answer the question. Did you, or did you not say, at the scene of the accident, “I’m fine?”

Clyde said, “well I just got Bessie into the trailer behind the tractor and I was driving down the road …”

The lawyer interrupted again and said, “Your honour, I am trying to establish the fact that, at the scene of the accident, this man told the Highway Patrolman he was just fine. Please tell him to honestly answer the question.”

By this time, the judge was fairly interested in Clyde’s answer and said to the lawyer, “I’d like to hear what he has to say about his favourite cow, Bessie.”

Clyde thanked the judge and proceeded.

“Well as I was saying. I had just loaded Bessie into the trailer and was driving her down the highway when this huge semi-truck and trailer ran the stop sign and smacked my John Deere Tractor right in the side. I was thrown into one side of the ditch and Bessie the other. I was hurting, real bad and I could hear Bessie moaning and groaning.

Shortly after the accident a Hwy. Patrolman came to the scene. He could hear Bessie’s moaning and groaning. He saw her in fatal condition, he took out his gun, shot her and put her out of her pain. Then the Patrol Man came across the road, gun still in hand, looked at me, and said “How are you feeling?” Now tell me what the heck would YOU say?”
