Welcome News

Okay, I have to start with the most welcome news.  My brother, Lee, just had his second child today, a boy named Keaton Maas!  6 pounds, 13 ounces.  I'm very happy to be an uncle to five kids now!

(Keaton Maas, born today!)

I noticed that RTD has won once again!  Good work, Roger!  I'll have to up my game for next week.  He was correct in guessing that this week's Person-of-Mystery was none other than Potato Creek Johnny, who found a 7.75 ounce gold nugget near Deadwood, South Dakota, in 1929.  The nugget was famous, but Johnny was rather iconic figure in Deadwood until the 1940s.  He was a bit of a local story teller and a colorful character in his own right and very popular with the kids since he was only four feet three inches tall!  Prospector in his own right.

So, I also got back from Camp-o-ree.  Our Scouts did great.  They won ribbons in the tomahawk throwing and blindfold tent pitch contests.  Everyone had a grand time, but it was like I suspected, no phone service.

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  Tomorrow, I'm off to survey a local cemetery with some of my history students.  I'll have to let you know how it goes when I return.

Congratulations! I'm no expert on babies but everything seems to be in place.

Maybe if you find a black hole in RTD's knowledge we mortals can try to win...

Congrats on your new nephew

Well I was born in North Dakota and spent 15 years in the S.E corner of Montana, which is not very far from Deadwood SD.
NM needs to be a little sneaky like PJM and find a local mystery person.

Congratulations! Picture reminds me of the birth of my little 6+ pounder many years ago.
