The Amazing Race – Huebert Edition

October 13th, 2015

image

This is Mahoney State Park. (Cue the dramatic background music in your mind) Located near Ashland, Nebraska just off I-80. This beautiful park is nestled among 700 acres along the picturesque Platte River. (It wasn’t in our budget to rent a helicopter and take a bunch of those all-important sweeping overhead shots so this will have to do…)

Hueberts Take Mahoney

October 7th, 2015

image

Before the snow starts to fly in my neck of the woods I thought it might be a good idea to share our Huebert Family Summer Adventure with all of you out there in the blogosphere.

Some of you may remember my “Mahoney Day” post from way back in July of 2014. You know, the one describing the complete and total panic attack that I undergo every three years when it’s time to reserve cabins at Mahoney State Park for our Huebert Family Reunion. Well the time had come. On the second to the last weekend of July the Battle Cry of the Hueberts was sounded and family members began to converge on the banks of the Platte River to “TAKE MAHONEY STATE PARK!!!”

Cocktails & Dreams

September 24th, 2015

“I see it in pink neon. Blink, blink, dinkity-blink.” – Doug Coughlin, “Cocktail”

Have I ever mentioned that I’m a child of the ’80s? You mean you haven’t all figured that out yet? Well I am, and “Cocktail” was at one point an all-time favorite. This was long before I realized Tom Cruise was insane… I mean, have you seen “Going Clear”? Complete wacko!

Fall Comes To Willow Station…. Again

September 16th, 2015

image

I think I first smelled Fall in the air three weeks ago. We were experiencing a week of unseasonably cool weather for Nebraska in August and I remember walking out the back door of the YNT (that would be the newspaper that I work at) and stopping in the middle of the parking lot and just taking in a deep breath. There it was. Fall. It was in the air. That cold, crisp smell tinged with a bit of smoke. The smoke was surely the result of someone grilling steaks for a summer cookout but I decided to pretend it was someone in the neighborhood firing up their fireplace.

This Land Is My Land…

July 4th, 2015

image

A post on the 4th of July? Sure, why not. I’ve already enjoyed a solid day off of work and the weekend has just begun. My full-time job, ye old YNT (not sure why I just started talking like a pirate), saw fit to give us the 3rd of July off since the 4th falls on a Saturday. And for the first time in my almost 15 years of employment, no one in my department had to pull holiday duty. You see, we don’t have a paper on major holidays so everyone gets the day off, well almost everyone. Those of us that actually assemble the paper and send it to press always have to work “on” the holiday in order to build the next days issue. Bummer right? Well not this holiday. No siree. Leave it to ‘Merica to solve that age old problem. I don’t have a paper to put together until Monday so bring on the holiday!

The Graduates

June 23rd, 2015

image

It seems like only yesterday I was writing about “Wedding Season”. “Wedding Season” soon turned into “Prom Season” which very quickly turned into “Graduation Season”. And a busy “Graduation Season” it was. It still blows my mind that my friends have kids graduating from high school. How did that happen? I still remember when they were babies traumatized by 4th of July Fireworks and tag-along little brothers who always knew exactly what we adults were talking about because “I have ears you know.” Noted, from then on we were a little more careful about what we said around Jordan.

On The Boardwalk

April 30th, 2015

image

I believe I stated in my last post that it was “Wedding Season”. Well, I was wrong, it’s actually “Prom Season”. And Prom went down in my little burg last weekend. Let me just say, for a town that could have been mistaken for the set of the movie “Footloose”… we’ve come a long way.

‘Ism’s”

April 15th, 2015

image

There’s a new print in my life and I think it turned out super cool, if I do say so myself. And, I owe it all to a guy named “Ike”. Actually, I owe it all to Ike’s wife who contacted me last December hoping to create a unique gift for her husband.
