Every woman’s dream

June 29th, 2010

The plaque on the front reads:

In memory of
For her generous contribution
to the water system for the
City of Glen Ullin, ND


  1. Every woman’s dream? I don’t get it. But I’m glad that Evelyn made her generous contribution.

  2. Don in Tennessee says:

    A “watered” down version of South Fork Ranch in the Dallas TV episode. J. R. Ewing would be proud!!!

  3. Ei says:

    That Evelyn, she’s a lucky girl.

  4. Lois says:

    What, exactly, did she contribute generously to the water system?!? ;o)

  5. katzien in austin says:

    Maybe before her contribution to the water system they just had wells? In which case, she definitely deserves her recognition. Now THAT’S every woman’s dream…recognition for her efforts.

  6. Lori Fales says:

    Yeah, I don’t get it either. What is it? My, what a big long pipe!?? The better to spray you with? =)

  7. Michael in Atlanta says:

    I’m guessing Matt’s dream reference is to the the shack….

  8. That’s one hell of a port-a -pottie!!!!

  9. Pablo says:

    Sounds like Evelyn gave a lot of money to this tiny village … good for her! The pipe is used to fill water trucks.

    How neat the local folks honored her in this way.

  10. Sarah says:

    My first thought was that it was a super nice porta pottie. Methinks it’s just a nice little water system shack, though.

  11. Reminds me of California where they name their rest stops after people. Is that really an honor? ;)

  12. Portland Sam says:

    It’s just a little friendly sarcasm, y’all. Much appreciated Matt.

  13. Barb V from Michigan says:

    Hey, this woman gets it! Sarcasm & I get along well. Great that the City of Glen Ullin recognized her contribution, but some beautiful flowering bushes or garden planted in that dirt along the edge would have made for a much nicer memorial. They obviously have the water supply to take care of it.

  14. Thomas says:

    Well, if you can’t have a sandwich named after you, I guess that is an okay substitute.

  15. Janine says:

    Well, it’s better than a bench!
