As we are about to enter the 5th month of the Chinese Flu my wife and I are starting to get more than a little tired of all the drama, hysteria and hyperbole surrounding it so we decided to go on a road trip. Luckily we live in South Dakota and have a governor who treats us like adults and hasn’t placed any restriction on us so we are free to travel as we wish. So we started by taking a trip down memory lane.

[From Feb. 17,2013} Sometimes working at school at school it's not just things we do for the living. When a funeral is too big for the church they will have them in the high school gym. I have taken part in 3. This is my reflection on those and the things I have learned from them. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/bard-on-the-plains/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/bard-on-the-plains/support
