I lived in Minneapolis and every summer my sister and I were put on a Greyhound bus and shipped off to our grandparents (Heintz) in Florence, a town of 200. We spent 6 weeks or so there and had so many adventures...I've been in many places in the world, I've lived abroad, (I'm 88) but Florence was the high point of my life. Father Stanmeyer and the beautiful Catholic church, Ole Aamodt the blacksmith, Sam Buss whose wife's mother ran a restaurant...he wore bib overalls and not much else. We'd peek through the screen door to see inside the pool hall. Swimming in Medicine Lake, going to the dances at that lake on Saturday nights when my grandad met with farmers hoping to sell his machines. We watched the dancing to bands like Red Nichols and his Five Pennies. My grandad, my mother's dad, was in the legislature meeting in Pierre. He was a farm machinery dealer and we played on his machines. Our father's family lived on a farm out in the country....we would always go out there for an overnight visit and hear the coyotes howling in the night. They had an outhhouse but we feared going out to it so I usually wet the bed. To this day anyone who knows me knows about Florence. When we returned home the neighborhood kids wanted to know all about our summer there. I'm sure they all envied us.....and well they should have.

My sister and I spent half of each summer with our grandparents (Heintz) in Florence. It was a wonderful experience for two girls from the city, (Minneapolis) and how we looked forward to each summer. I still go there occasionally and always attend Mass in beautiful Blessed Sacrament church. My parents were married there as were many family members. We visited nearby friends' farms and knew almost everyone in town. My four grandparents were Florence residents (one, McCabes) on a nearby farm and the others in town.
