My family is from Moosehorn. One of the first family to homestead there in the very early 20th century. Their house where my dad was born in 1916 & where he grew up about 5 miles from town is on display in the centre of town. I've never seen it & one of these days I'd like to drive up there to see it.

Wow, Moosehorn has a 1st Ave S and a 1st Ave N, but no 2nd or up.

(when I get bored I just look at places on Google Maps.  It's an amazing time we live in.)

Think I spotted SF27's heritage house, but not sure.

Those aren't ducks those are the Melsted brothers.

I've been gone too long. From Riverton and don't get either reference

So Martimes. Hand is already on the chicken switch. Ambrosie and people not acquainted with how maritime politics and thinking works will be stunned when the whole notion implodes...but they shouldn't be.

FYI Nobody cares about your tiny little dump towns. I spit on all of them. Especially you guys from Wollerton.

Sounds like something a Shelbyvillian would say...

Old enough to remember when he was part of The Plan.

I already forgot the Riders brought in Vince Young a couple years ago.. the biggest surprise was that it was to play QB... and not tackle, as one would've expected...

If you're from Riverton in the past 60 years it would be tough not to know a Melsted.

There is supposed to be a museum in town & that is where it is.  It's right downtown amid the hustle & bustle. This is my Dad's home.

Opening new markets. Generating new revenue schemes. I just don't get the point of all this.  Randy Ambrosie's  airline tickets would cost more than any $$$ the league sees from this.

Ever go duck & geese hunting at Riverton? I did in my youth.

Ah got it...  I'd say Riverton's more about pickerel though.  And Reggie Leach.  And whiskey.

Depends who you ask I suppose. Ask someone from Gimli what Riverton is all about. lol
