Vol.2..Norwegian Farmer’s Son..July 20th

July 20th……….“WAS THERE A SNACK YOU ENJOYED DURING YOUR YOUNG DAYS IN KIESTER, MINNESOTA? WHAT WAS IT CALLED AND WHAT WAS THE OCCASION THAT YOU REMEMBER FIRST EATING IT”?

POEM – “A Tasty Time Machine”. Created by N. Elliott Noorlun. It was January or February of 1967 and I was a member of the Kiester High School “Bulldog” Wrestling Team. Our Mat Men were going to be bussed to a wrestling meet in Sherburn, MN (if I rightly recall). I had just enough time to rush up to the Kiester Food Market and found this “new” and very tasty cracker called “Chicken In A Biskit”. Yummm yumm!!! 😉

Can a taste transport, Like a time machine can?

To a past time of joy or fun?

It does for me, With this cracker snack you see,

Oh the wheels of time do run!

Elliott is top row, fourth from left. This was the 1966-67 Kiester High School “Bulldog” Wrestling team led by Mr. Parker and Mr. Koenck

Back to the year of ’67, At the tender age of thirteen,

When all was a joy, For this here boy,

In the days when I was still lean. 😉

The Kiester Food Market…….where Elliott first discovered “Chicken In A Biskit” crackers!!! 😉

On a winter’s eve, Our wrestling team,

Was soon to board the bus.

So quickly I flew, For the grocer I knew,

Had a snack to please all of us.

In olden times, “Mountain Dew” was another name for whiskey, thus the hillbilly type of advertising as you see here for the soda beverage that is still called “Mountain Dew”.

With a pop in one hand, And crackers in t’other,

I jumped back on board, Just in time!

To the meet we did fly, While my pals and this guy,

Munched a snack that was truly sublime!!! 😉

Our “Bulldogs” could sure have a lot of fun when that whistle of Mr. Parker’s would blow!!! 😉
