It doesnâ€™t take much to get me to wondering. In this case all it took was a song I heard on an AM radio station. Speaking of heard: The name of the song was, â€śYou canâ€™t rollerskate in a buffalo herd.â€ť It was written by a Mr. Roger Miller. Iâ€™m supposing that if there were ever a person deceased that Iâ€™d have liked to have met before they arrived it would have been him. Some of you may know the song and I invite you to hum along as I share a bit of it with you. Here goes:
â€śYou canâ€™t rollerskate in a buffalo herd.

Temperatures this weekend may be on the cooler side than what people would prefer, but following a strong chance of rain in the area tonight and a cloudy weekend, temps are predicted to be in the upper 60s and 70s next week.
National Weather Service meteorologist Peter Rogers said today would be â€śpretty cloudy for a good chunk of the dayâ€ť with overnight thunderstorms moving through around midnight.
â€śMost of the precipitation should move off by morning,â€ť he said. â€śThe rest of Saturday looks mainly dry with increasing cloud cover.â€ť
A large amount of copper wire was stolen from Hi-Line Electric Tuesday evening, said Amy Anderson, wife of Brad Anderson, who owns the business with Chad Zaun.
Thursday Anderson said the copper wire was valued at â€śless than $25,000, but itâ€™s a lot.â€ť
She added, â€śpeople who own copper wire have to be very careful.â€ť
She said the business was broken into Tuesday evening.
â€śThey covered the windows and even used our forkliftâ€ť in order to steal the metal, Anderson said.
â€śThey knew how to run the forklift,â€ť Anderson said.
Valley Cityâ€™s City Park bandshell has sat unused since 2008, and is now facing an uncertain future. A recent assessment by city engineers Kadrmas, Lee and Jackson put the estimated cost for repairing the 80-year-old building at a quarter of a million dollars, and the hefty price tag has the Valley City Park District wondering if the historic structure can or should be salvaged.
