Happy March from Dancing Rabbit! Whatever the weather says, the first of March always gives me a boost of hope that I may actually survive winter. Ted here to report on the village, after the week in which I reached the age of 40. It isn’t that the cold is all that oppressive, really. Last […]

How to Get Unstuck From Serious Stuckability

I can’t think of anything that feels like a bigger waste of time than being stuck.  A ring on a finger that needs to be removed, a car in a snowdrift, or a big critter wedged within a small doghouse, stuck is not what one would identify as a progressive moment. A mood hovers over […]

Rutledge Renegades

Joseph and Thelma Martin became the parents of a baby boy, Kadrain Shane, on Friday, February 27th.  He weighed 7 lbs 2 oz. On Thursday, February 26, the LaBelle Masonic Lodge #222 had a “President’s Dinner” entertaining the Eastern Stars and recruiting new members.  Broken Fiddle Band entertained everyone.  Band members are Don Goings, Lon […]

Why There Is Always Hope

Hope. The word seems kinda conditional.  If things go the way we had “hoped” then hope seems to live.  If not; then there wasn’t any “hope”. Truthfully, there is always hope.  If what we had wished doesn’t come about as we had planned, there is ample reason to believe there is a plan B.  Again, […]

A PLug

I can remember several years ago, going fishing on a sunny but cold day in February. It was the first nice Saturday we had had in a long time. The plan was to do a little bass fishing and enjoy our first trip of the year. I was with a friend and we were taking […]

Rutledge Renegades

Our sympathies to Naomi Kidd-Schwandt and family and friends on the death of her husband Irwin. Paul and Minerva Zimmerman went to Florida for two weeks.  When they came back home it was very cold.  When they were in Florida, she said it was cold in the morning and evening, but the days were warm.  […]

Annual Retreat

Annual Retreat

The only pleasant part of the negative temperatures of late is the satisfying way that wood splits. Or realizing that no matter how old you are, breaking the brittle top layer of a frozen puddle with your boot toe is secretly satisfying, like cracking through the top of a creme brûlée. Maybe humans just like […]

Seed Choices

Seed Choices

Hello Readers!! Lucas here, and it’s been too long. I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to speak with all of you again! Winter festivities are in full swing here at Dancing Rabbit! The snowfall a couple weeks back was more than I’ve ever seen in person, and I had a great time building an igloo […]


I have figured out that men will do just about anything in order to feed their need for risk and adventure. Of course many women will do this as well but overall it really is men who seem to want to test the limits of normality. With just a quick online search, one can find […]

Rutledge Renegades

Our sympathy goes out to the family and friends of Shirlene Chancellor. Ruth Ludwick, Charlene Montgomery and Neta Phillips went to Kirksville. Jim and Nancy Jo Waack went to Quincy.  They went to Kirksville a few days later. Bob and Dorothy Hunolt and Marjorie Peterson went to Kirksville.  After leaving Kirksville, they took Marjorie to […]
