Bob Lind: A wild winter tale

Spring has settled in, but thoughts of winter events remain. Including imaginary events.

One day last winter, Jonathan Deutsch dreamed up a story and sent it to Neighbors.

Jonathan is a 1972 graduate of Central Cass High School, Casselton, N.D. He spent four years as an Air Force military policeman, then graduated from Minnesota State University Moorhead in 1980.

He joined the Army Band’s chorus and retired last year after almost 34 years on active duty. He now lives in Arlington, Va., from where he came up with this story, which Neighbors passes on just as he wrote it:

The mayor of Fargo, Michael Moorhead, has just declared a Skate of Emergency, following a futile Norwegian YeeHahdist Snowmobomber attack, (maybe it was a bombed Norwegian YeeHahdist ... reports are unclear), attacking the southwest (J.C. Penney) entrance to West Acres Mall.

No one, not even the goofy YeeHahdist, was injured in the freak incident.

Apparently, according to Fargo police officials, the Norwegian couldn’t get his Santa-suit buckle to detonate before he crashed into the hair salon department, scaring three older residents of Bethany getting their hair done.

No one was hurt, but a darn good snowmobile had to be put to sleep.

Stay tuned for less breaking news from SNOW-FM, Fargo’s warm ’n sunny easy listening music station.

There you have Jonathan’s story, just as he says it happened.

Ya sure.
