Letters From Ralph


Ralph J. Mouw, a native of Orange City, Iowa, never forgot his roots - even when he was halfway across the world during World War II.

In this collection of letters, you'll find a firsthand account of what life was like during the war at home and overseas. Although letters were heavily censored during the war years, the editors have added comments to place them in context.

New Discs
By Owner: Bonnie Meier

In our last newsletter I stated that we would be getting some new discs. We do have them now. There were only four choices and we were limited in how many we could buy. I guess the pandemic has caused many places to sell out of discs because disc golf was the one sport that you could still play. The discs I received were the Star Wraith, the Star Mako3, the Invader, and the Star Valkryie. I have a nice selection of each in different weights and different colors.


New Shipment of Small Wooden Shoes Coming
By Owner: Bonnie Meier

At Tulip Festival last May we sold out of all of our very small wooden shoes (6, 8, and 10 centimeters). Until recently, our supplier was also out of them. So I just sent for a new supply and should hopefully have them by the time you get this newsletter. I should have many different colors available. I have one customer who buys the small shoes and makes them into pin cushions and then resells them. (She sold out of all hers during the festival, so she is anxiously awaiting this next shipment). If you are interested in the very small wooden shoes, please stop over or give me a call at 712-737-8920.

As we start heading toward the season where you might want to be sending some things, remember that we still handle UPS packages. Small packages get pretty expensive through UPS, but the bigger ones often are priced very competitively with other carriers (including the post office).


Juliana's Disc Golf Tour
By Owner: Bonnie Meier

The season for the big tournaments is just about over. However, there are events you can enter all year long (just check out events at pdga.com).

The final National Tour event of the season is taking place right now in Nashville, TN. It is called the Music City Open. Juliana is competing in this event, but she has choosen to do commentary at the upcoming Women's event called Throw Pink. It will be held in conjunction with the USDGC. The coverage for the event is pay per view. You can sign up for the fan pass to see the live coverage at dgpt and to hear Juliana on the commentary.


Book Reviews
By Owner: Bonnie Meier

Tanner on Ice by Lawrence Block.

Lawrence Block is a prolific mystery and crime writer and has used several pseudo names. He often writes about the same characters. This particular book is about the recurring character Evan Tanner. All his other books about Tanner were written 30 or more years ago. This book was written in 1998 and he explained Tanner's absence by stating that one of Tanner's enemies, instead of killing Evan, froze him. He was frozen for 25 years and then revived. From there he goes on to have an experience in Burma filled with all kinds of adventures. I thought it was a so-so book. It is hard cover and sells for $4.00.

Emma's Secret by Taylor Bradford.

This would have been easier to follow if I had read the three preceding books (it was a series). However, it does stand pretty well on its own only it took me awhile to figure out all the family relationships. Barbara Taylor Bradford is a prolific female writer who is an English woman living in New York City. This story takes place in London in present day, but is based on her first novel, A Woman of Substance which took place in England before and during World War II. It is the story of Emma Hartes grandchildren and great-grandchildren and how they are affected by a secret that only Emma knew back in the '40s. It was an entertaining novel, but I think will appeal to women more than men (talks about fashion, etc.) Actually, that is probably a politically incorrect comment these days, but I know my husband wouldn't care to read it. This book is hard cover and sells for $5.50.

Countdown 1945 by Chris Wallace.

This book is actually not for sale, but I wanted to review it anyway. This book was very good. It was a birthday present for my husband and given to us by a good friend.

This is a true story of the development of the atomic bomb and 116 days that changed the world. It also has several pictures in it that made it more interesting. I know many people think it was a terrible thing to do (dropping the atomic bomb), however, one of our best friends is a 95 year old WWII veteran and he was scheduled to be one of the men who was going to storm the beaches of Japan if the war had continued. The men all had to write out their wills before the storming of the beach because their life expectancy was 15 minutes once they hit the beach. The dropping of the bomb saved thousands and thousands of young soldiers lives (Doc was 19 at the time) and who knows how much longer the war would have gone on. Anyway, this book was published in 2020 and was excellent.
