Barn dances and fishing – Minute 14

DIR HUNTER WEEKS: Did you go to a lot of barn dances? WALTER: Yeah, I went to some but not many. I didn’t have time to – I was so damn busy working, I didn’t have time to dance. INTERVIEWER: You’re a hard worker, huh? Keep working. WALTER: I had two jobs all the time. Besides working at the railroad, I was secretary of the Masonic Lodge for years. That kept me busy doing everything. INTERVIEWER: Did you fish? WALTER: Oh darn we’d fish every week – went some place especially up around Essex. More fishing streams around there – the Middle Fork of the Flathead right through there. The big river out of Sun River that flows through there. Many little creeks all full of fish there. That was a busy place to fish up around Glacier Park.
