Now therefore, my sons, listen to me, and pay attention to the words of my mouth.
~Proverbs 7:24, NASB


To be persuasive we must be believable: to be believable, we must be credible: to be credible, we must be truthful.
~Edward R. Murrow


[And I’m sticking to it]
The following story was shared by a guide on the way to White Pass in the Yukon territory. I shared it with our table at supper and they laughed. Five of the eight were on the same tour and they all vowed that no such story was shared. He told the story but they were not paying attention.  I think they thought I was pulling their leg. It is a true story, check it out for yourself.

Friedrich Drumpf migrated from Germany to America in 1885 and worked in New York City for six years as a barber before moving to Seattle Washington where he opened a restaurant and brothel in the red light district. He became a U.S. citizen in 1892 and changed his name to Frederick Trump. In July of 1897 he moved to the Klondike and set up a restaurant and brothel for prospectors. After the gold rush ended, he moved to Bennett, British Columbia and opened the Artic Restaurant and Hotel which was a brothel. He said himself, “It was not a place for respectable women.” In 1900 the 150-mile-long White Pass and Yukon Railroad between Bennett and White Horse, Alaska was completed, allowing Trump to establish the White Horse Restaurant and Inn. I got to ride those tracks when we were on our trip and I bought a cap in the White Pass depot.

Friedrich Drumpf who became Frederick Trump married Elizabeth Christ and they moved to New York City where their Son Fred was born. Fred Trump, Jr. was born and grew up in New York City and became wealthy in real estate. He passed away in June of 1999. Donald Trump was born in 1946 and inherited his father’s real estate business. I think Donald has made most of his billions on real estate, hotels, resorts,  and casinos so you can see the likeness between him and grand dad. Now you know the rest of the story.

I am having a hard time getting into politics these days but I can tell you one thing, we do not need another career politician as President. We need someone who knows how to run a business. I am not endorsing Donald Trump but I do like the way he stands up to the liberal and fickle media and O’Rielly of Fox is as fickle as they come. Don’t get me wrong, FOX is light years ahead of the others.



  • You don’t believe that I was listening and caught the story which they missed because they were yacking, do you?
  • Another good day as things fall into place: we have a mail out that should get to you and 6,000 more by Thursday or Friday [promoting the Block Party]. Matt Asherbranner will be repairing the sewage line today. We want to get it fixed before we pave. Derek will stencil the new van today. Mandy and I got everything out of storage and Danny brought our extra dumpster. It’s looking good. The T-Shirt order has been phenomenal [75 ordered last Sunday].
  • We got a flood in Danville and not a drop at Rocky Ford but that is OK: Gerald Miller said we will have more chances this week.
