Otter Tail County

My father grew up in Otter Tail County, Minnesota. I was delighted by the road signs on the county roads -- they made me smile.

They reminded me of Emmett Otter of the "Emmett Otter Jugband Christmas" movie.

My grandfather ran a general store in Basswood. I had been told that the store was still there so I went to see it.

Unfortunately, a winter storm loosened one of the letters in the name and now it says . . .
