It is very small town. Not very many stores. If you want to open a business this is the place
One of the entry in the parades .(some farmers.)
There is a reservation a few miles from Williston these are from there. There costumes have so much work in them ,with beads and bangles.
It was too cold to have the picnic at grave . So we went to the nursing home to have it there. We have a couple cousin that live there. It was nice and warm
Saw allot more relatives there .
This is one of the new oil wells in the Williston area. It is my cousins wifes. It takes up about 10 aces with the trailers and the rigs, all the equipment .They are going up all over the place. They say the area has the most millionaires in the country. Do to the oil .If you need a job this is the place to go .Put come in a camper there is no where to live .People are sleeping in cars. Boy do they make money,but it is hard work .Pick-up trucks every where . Out in the country there are oil rigs all along the horizon . Big change from last year. I learned allot more about the drilling of the wells. Discovery channel was there in town and CNN is coming there . Their has been oil bomb before in the 50's and the 70's . It is said if you own land there you will have a well. But to be rich you have to have allot of the wells and allot of land .
It was allot of fun

Had a wonderful birthday and anniversary.
Now I will start to get some sewing and hand work done.
This is the kind of things I'm going to work on... and small art card .
The quilt, my mother made many years ago. The fabric is from some of the dresses I wore to high school. All the material is from the 40-60's. It is a small lap quilt.
Also, I need to sew a dress for my dolls for the month of May. I want it to be a Norwegian. There is a celebration for them May 17th --Norwegians, that is.
I'm making a calendar of the dolls. So every month I try to dress the doll in a costume of a holiday in that month or a theme of the month.
So I have a busy week..
