Le( Beaudlaml) Liann Zeller joined the BrushBunchin2011 although she was very familiar to all of us at the Brush Bunch. A few years ago we invaded her office space, at the Walhalla chamber where was the director, when we moved our Brush Bunch operation from the St Boniface Community Center to where we are now. Liann realized how much fun we had and how hard we worked, that upon retiring she joined the bunch. The picture shows Liann painting a picture of their family cabin built by her grand father and father in 1952, this is where she grew up. The cabin is located near the Wyoming border at Red Feather, Colorado above Fort Collins. Her and hubby, Bill, spend as much time as possible there. Using oils Liann used the stencil method of drawing the cabin on her pallet before painting the sky and mountains. This is a good time to thank Liann for having her brother, Lynn Swallow, give us some instructions on "Renaissance Painting". Wow! What an insight on a different method of painting. I enjoyed it an am trying it again. More on this in a future article. We have several activities coming up, one of these is the Rendezvous Art Festival this weekend in the Walhalla City Park. A trip to Cavalier and one to Grand Forks. People are funny; They want the front of the bus, the middle of the road and the back of the church. Till next time. God Bless!

This week I'd like to share with you some of the things you might do with Kelly's Sausage of the Week. No, I'm not going to recommend making a sausage canon or putting a bunch of links together to make a skip rope. This is serious business. Instead, I'm going to encourage you to send in your favorite ways of putting Kelly's Sausage of the Week to good use and give you a few hints, courtesy of Priscilla Bloomquist. I ran into Priscilla on Monday at the store. She was elated that their dog, which had been AWOL for over two weeks had returned home. A little worn out but none the worse for the wear. Although now, it seems very happy not to leave the house. Anyway, she was also excited about Kelly's Smoked Onion Sausage. She and her family had built a campfire the other night. They then cut coin size pieces of Kelly's Onion and skewered a line of them on a long fork and held them over the fire. She reportedtheywere absolutely delicious. We decided that would probably be a great way to do the Old Fashioned Hickory" Smoked as well. Then we got on the subject of his Maple Seasoned Sausage. Priscilla said they love it for breakfast. I definitely concur. I like mine with pancakes and lots of maple syrup to slosh the sausage pieces in. If you've got a favorite way of eating one of the Continued On Page 8 Down Our Street In recent years, my Aunt Connie has become a central figure in my life. I've come to realize how important and irreplaceable a family is. Even though my immediate family passed away before Ian was born, my family roots run deeper. Immediately following Riverfest, Todd, Ian, and I headed west to Missoula, MT. to spend four days with my Aunt Connie (Simmons) Peterson. As a 1951 graduate of DHS, she calls Drayton home. In the spirit of 1983% hit movie 'National Lampoon: Vacation', our jam packed Buick eerily resembled Griswold's station wagon. Our family road trip covered 1000+ miles over two days. Luckily before leaving home, I checked out Ian's packing job. The contents: two pair of jeans (no shorts), one t- shirt, and at least ten pairs of underwear. The remainder of room was stuffed with a snowy owl and wolf hand puppets, an Iron Man mask and gear, along with a myriad of mismatched toys. Aside from Ian's frequent 'potty' stops to check out the various restrooms, the trip went smoothly. It had been 20+ years since my last visit and expected many changes. With a few 'tweaks here and there, her home was as I remembered. Ian was fascinated with her Sunsetter remote controlled awning. My Aunt Connie hadn't changed much either. She was boisterous as ever and still 'sported' her trademark jet black hair. We were welcomed with fleshly squeezed lemonade. Since our visit, Todd constantly asks me when I'm going to 'whip' up a pitcher like Aunt Connie. After unloading and a short visit, we were off to the University of Montana campus to see the Washington-Grizzley football stadium. As a huge fan, Connie quickly pointed out where she had reserved seating. On our way out, she showed us the spot in the parking lot where my :cousin Jeff parks his RV for 'tailgating'. Connie takes her turn preparing meals to serve football fans. The following evening, my cousin Jeff & wife Karen treated us to deep flied Turkey. We were joined by their daughter Taylor, 18 and son Jacob, 13, my cousin Marc, wife Sheri and 3 daughters Jennaya, 26, Kayli,24 and her boyfriend, and Kinzi, 22 along with her boyfriend. While visiting, Karen showed Ian Jacob's drum set New Drayton AA to Meet Think you might have a drinking problem? Are you sick and tired of being sick and tired?

Diane, a long time fanof Drayton, has a real job too. She's a freelance producer and casting director and hops from coast to coast, putting together some of those national commercials we see on television, ff that's not enough she does consulting and training through her Minneapolis based business, "coaching and consulting confidential". Check it out at www.dianefieldcom. That would be her and my morn, Carole, pictured above along with the shamelessly plugged Valley News and Views. he didn't play. Ian's dream had come true! He already had put his order in for drums from Santa. Needless to say, we moved to the deck for the remainder of our visit. Thanks to Jeff and Karen, the drum set made the trip back to Drayton. Sorry neighbors! Wednesday afternoon, Connie took us downtown to Cards Park; home to A Carousel for Missoula. As the city's most prized attraction, it features wooden ponies, dragons, and chariots handcrafted by volunteers. Its' band organ is America's largest. Adjacent to the carousel is Dragon Hollow play land. In the shape of a dragon, the play land was constructed In nine days by 4,000 volunteers. Todd and I had date night Thursday evening. We met up with Connie Tutfle and boyfriend Ed; hitting a couple Missoula hotspots such as recently opened Plonk where Todd photographed our salmon appetizer. Prior to that, the four of us met Jeff and Karen in Cards Park to listen to enjoy live music. Before we left for home, Aunt Connie thought we needed to try 'Vikings'. These batter dipped Swedish meatballs are a sought after treat in Missoula. I disagree. They taste like Swedish potato sausage incased in bread to me. Oh well, can't win'em all. Saturday morning, we loaded up our now 'bulging at the seams' Buick & made the long road trip back to Drayton. Enroute, we made a brief sweep through Yellowstone; stopping at Old Faithful and Tower Falls. Ian had a blurry glimpse of bison and elk as we breezed through the park. We hope to make it a yearly trip now. Without a doubt, I believe our 'Vacation' far exceeds the Griswold's. As memorable and fun our trip was, I can't help but think 'There is no place like home.'
