Corner Drug has started a Birthday Party Registry.  The way it works is before your child has a birthday or party, bring them into Corner Drug and register them by selecting a few toys or gifts that they would like to receive.  You can simply write down a description or name of the toy and/or the suggested dollar limit.  Your invited guests can then come into Corner Drug and ask to see the list and hopefully make a purchase based on your choices.  This way the child may avoid duplicate presents or receive things that the parent doesn’t approve of.  The child will get a certificate for a free ice cream cone by registering.  Please contact Sally or Amber for questions…

I recently talked on the phone with a young lady in Texas about upgrading our store website to be HTTPS compliant.  During the conversation she asked where I was calling from and I answered her “Idaho”.  She mentioned that she had never been to Idaho and didn’t even sound very confident that she knew where Idaho even was.

She said that she has lived her whole life in Texas and started to tell me how she had went out this winter and bought a “coat” but hadn’t had a chance to wear it yet this winter.

I asked her if she knew where Jackson Hole, Wyoming was and she hadn’t heard of Jackson Hole but thought that she knew where Wyoming was.

She asked if it got cold here and also mentioned that she had never seen snow.  I said that I would send her some in the mail and she was so excited.  I didn’t get a discount on the website upgrade despite my generous offer of the snow.

Well we had a spring teaser a couple weeks ago and we all knew it was too good to be true.  Some folks in Idaho were not impressed as the early warm up has caused some severe flooding.  While the warm up

did melt all the ice off the roads and parking lots, it didn’t last long.  Yesterday I drove out to see my mom for her birthday and this is what I saw almost all the way home.  Becoming a snow bird is starting to sound more and more appealing…

Who doesn’t enjoy a good back scratch? My horse takes advantage of the sand on the Teton Valley Pavilion this winter after a ride.

Teton Valley Idaho usually gets its share of snow.  So much snow that we celebrate it every January with the Great Teton Valley Snowfest.  The highlight for us is the snow sculptures that are next door at the city plaza.  Some are pretty detailed and inspiring.  Corner Drug is proud to help sponsor this event each year.

The Teton Valley Snowfest recently wrapped up and the snow sculptures this year were impressive.  Many thanks to the volunteers and others who help make this happen.

We have had a decent winter this year as far as snowfall is concerned.  Many areas of SE Idaho are well over their average numbers for this time of year.  Even the Boise area has gotten more than their usual share of snow.

 

 

My snowplow truck got a new engine this year after I lost a chunk of piston going down the road.  Believe it or not but it kept running and I was able to baby it and continue to use it for a couple weeks until we could  get the motor installed between storms.

In what many are saying as the driest winter they can remember, one doesn’t have to look very far to see that while this year is out of the ordinary, it is not something that has not happened before.  A good customer of ours, an older lady, tells the story how the year she was born, (I think she said 1940?) was a year similar to this one.  The story is that on the day she was born on the first of February of that year, that her grandmother walked across the bare fields to visit the new baby.  And the rest of the story is that just a few weeks after that pleasant day, that the family had to hitch up the horse team and sleigh in order to get to church because the driveway was blowed shut with snow.  Some say that I jinxed us this year with my earlier post, but just remember that Teton Valley, Idaho may skip an occasional summer, but hasn’t skipped a winter yet.

Well winter arrived several weeks early this year.  Judging by the amount of snow on the ground already it looks to be a long cold winter too.  Some people really love winter and some really despise it.  I dont mind winter but the secret is to have something to do outside during the winter that you enjoy.  Get out and ski, snowmobile, shovel snow or something…

KPVI Channel Six News did a nice segment about the historic drugstore in Driggs, Idaho on 3/27/14.  It reviews the history of the store beginning with Jack Harper (current owner’s great-grandfather). Jim Hunter (current owners’s father) talks about helping out when he was a kid.  Sally Myler (current owner) even speaks of working for her dad in her youth.  We think it turned out great!.  Thanks KPVI!
