WOLF CREEK HERITAGE MUSEUM NOTES
by Virginia Scott

MUSEUM HAPPENINGS

A busy week at the museum. On Wednesdays, the core team is continuing the busy cleaning and sorting
thru our work area. We have found lost items and discovered others. Amazing how you think you
have following proper procedures and discover that didn't happen on this item. We laugh and call it
job security.

It is always fun during the summer when families return for reunions or just to visit their hometowns.
We have had visits from Ed Babitzke and Dan Becker and his family this month. Many others have
visited researching their family histories.

REMINDER: Carol Gifford's quilts will be on display thru September. Plan an day trip to visit our four
county museums and see what great local exhibits and history we have in this corner of the
Panhandle.

I will be venturing down south to an arrow dedication in Tohoka this week. We are almost completed
with this project. It has been very interesting learning the history of the relationship of the early
settlers, the Indians, and the military with these arrows as reminders of our past.

HISTORICAL MUSINGS

In a 1914 issue of the local paper, a gentleman made the following observation: "One passed the
window (of a shop) a moment ago, through which we saw a wart on the left hind leg of a perfectly
strange lady. That does seem a little informal for even these rapid times. In our grandmother's day no
lady would show the wart on the southwest quarter of the east half of section 4, range 6, to a
gentlemen without at least the formality of an introduction. But now-we certainly are going some."

This is the first time I have read a description of a woman using land measurements.

"After God created the world, He made man and woman. Then to keep the whole thing from collapsing,
He invented humor." -Guillermo Mordillo

Have a great week.
