I moved back to North Dakota because I was homesick for Jell-o, Wonder Bread, church pot-lucks, meadowlarks, no traffic, and where a trip to the bank, post office, and grocery store on Main Street lasted a half hour.
In a vision, I saw the real meaning behind Jell-o… not a food at all….but a medium for creative expression.
As so, it came to pass that a competition was held and a good time was had by all! “Poppies” by Bill Reynolds, my Pop, took First Place in the Adult Division. “Wagons West” by a neighbor’s grandchild took the $10.00 prize in the Children’s Division. A last minute graphic art entry from my sister-in-law, Kathy Ridl, depicts Jell-o in two-dimensional splendor.
