With Justine WVathci ford
Last Thursday noon I had my first meal in downtown
Lexington at the Harshman's Tavern. What a cozy spot it is
with its attractive round fireplace blazing away. Eleanor
Gonty and I really enjoyed the friendly atmosphere and the
very good food.
We traveled to the Umatilla Bridge the long way via
Heppner Junction after we were told that the North
Lexington highway was pretty rough still. At Irrigon we
found a nice stand still offering local garden produce. As we
drove on diagonally north in Washington, we got into heavy
late-afternoon fog and were glad it was not our first trip to
"my daughter's home near Cheney we could have lost our
Friday we made several trips into Spokane and enjoyed
the big city sights, the bustling shopping centers and the
unusual eating places. We had our dinner out in a very large,
attractively decorated Mexican restaurant with the rather
incongruous name "The Holding Company."
When we returned to Heppner about 12:30 on Saturday
we came via Sand Hollow and past the high school athletic
field, where many cars were parked along the highway
indicating a good attendance at the Heppner-St. Mary's
game. Because I chose to attend the McDaniel's 50th
Anniversary and to visit with Jeanne Dobbs, I missed the
very good contest. When I drove toward my home later I met
the cars coming away from the game and easily guessed that
Heppner had been bested because there was no horn honking
or cheering.
Jeanne Dobbs, daughter of county pioneers and the
long-time owner and operator of Jeanne's Beauty Shop on
Main Street, has been living in Hawaii for several years. She
flew to Oregon to visit her married children, Shirley and Bob,
and other family members. She was a guest in the home of
her sister Jane Rawlins for three days. Soon Jeanne will
return to the paradise islands to conintue her retirement
sounds super.
The John Breidenbach family, except high school senior
daughter Lela, moved from Heppner to Timber Lake near
Estacada last week. Lela is now sharing my home, and I feel
very lucky to have her pleasant company. I was thinking of
her as a "temporary daughter" until I found out that I am
older than both of her grandmothers now I have re-adjusted
my thinking to "temporary granddaughter."
Beloved Delia McCurdy was telling a group of friends
recently that she really thinks her life is still pretty good for
one past eighty years. Delia said that she feels adjusted to
most everything except having her "little boy" Harlan
McCurdy, Jr., reach 60 years of age.
We hear that Heppner's traveling Tibbies have returned
safely after a big look around South American. Last year
they saw New Zealand and Australia. What a way to put off
leaf raking and windshielf scraping just fly off south of the
After we read of the high incidence of divorces in the
U.S. now stated to be one of every two marriages we
wondered if there is something magic about our county. The
D.E. "Shorty" Hudsons are being congratulated on their 60
years of marriage and the Carl McDaniels have just
celebraled their fiftieth anniversary. How special!
Last week the League of Oregon Cities held its annual
get-together in Portland. Among the municipal officials
drafted to speak on a panel at the occasion was Heppner's
friendly Mayor Jerry Sweeney. Also included was this
writer's second son, Municipal Judge Bill Haberlach of
Although they are not all down, the leaves are falling fast
from the two large Dutch elms in front of my home. The yard
and front walk are covered with their natural gold.
Because I am an experienced procrastinator I keep
thinking it is futile to collect them now and haul them back to
the vegetable plot behind the house where I believe they will
contribute to next year's garden which I hope my expert
neighbor Bill Rawlins will plant there again. After they are
all down I promise to get moving them.
This week of counting blessings. I am so thankful for life
and family and kind friends. I feel so blessed to live in our
little city, in our progressive state and in this nation which in
I spite of problems and mistakes is still the greatest place live
I on this planet.
