A Big Deal

Posted on

Hi everyone! I got my mail yesterday, and I was quite excited to see two things in it – a package from Steve (I knew it was coming, and was anticipating its arrival) and the Big Deal Bulletin. The Big Deal Bulletin is a booklet printed every 2 weeks, based out of La Crete (about an hour east of High Level), with all kinds of ads: classifieds, notice of sales, and various advertisements. It’s great! I thought I would share a few of the items with you, ’cause they made me giggle [my notes in square brackets]:

– FOR SALE: 6 cows (4 first timers, 2 older) – $850.00; Also, 1 bull. Call …. [Sounds to me like everything you need to start your own herd!!]

Sept. 24 @ 4 pm. from our farm 2 miles South of 58/88 junction (10 miles north of Fort Vermilion @ Cam’s Automotive sign) Harli has health problems that require special care. We are offering a cash reward for any information that will help us find her safe & sound. Call Cameron…

There are also various trucks, sporting equipment, appliances, houses, house-trailers, sections and parcels of land for sale and rent. It’s pretty wild! It’s obviously THE PLACE to advertise in High Level or La Crete! 🙂
That’s it for now! Take care everybody, and have a great weekend!
