Headed out north of Crookston, NE to deliver a washer that I had repaired. From there went west and checked a freezer fan that was making a lot of noise. Thermometer on garage there read 90 degree F. Another call from GE to check a washer at Two Strike. This is just north of St. Francis and south of Rosebud, SD. So headed north and west to come into St. Francis from a easterly direction, then north. Directions given were Old Two Strike, east of road. Someone would be home, I asked if near old Church at Two Strike, she said farther past it. (Dad had moved this church from Lakeview to Two Strike in about 1947.) She said cross auto gate, last house on the road. No roads going near old church, I could see church ( or its remains) in the distance. Asked at a home in Two Strike housing area and was told that she works at Valandra's in St. Francis, so I go there: wrong but similar first name, but directions mostly by hand signals, to go back to Two Strike area. They thought she lived with her grandma Bear Shield. Stopped at house that I thought must be the one. Two little girls ages 1 1/2 to 3 home alone, didn't know anything, but not the right house. Remembering that she said cross auto gate, no auto gates east of highway, so try west side. Another house, directions that she lived with grandma Bear Shield two miles south. Found another auto gate, wye in the road, took the left for the last house, got directions that she lived in the house on the other wye in the road. Nobody home. Little house, a lot of household things outside that would not fit in house.
After 5:30 now, headed south of St. Francis, cut across to Clarence's place, stopped and sprayed a few weeds and grasshoppers, headed back across to the Crookston Road and to Crookston and on home to Valentine.
At least I know were the place is now, Will try again when up that way.
