Consider picking up a snack at the local store ("Five Things," June 6). You might enjoy it on the bench under the overhang, watching the passing parade, or while perusing the bulletin board (trailer for rent, bookmobile schedule, quarterhorse at stud). Maybe they carry fishing lures and plumbing supplies, too. They might have a book exchange tucked into a quiet corner. You'll support your fellow Humboldters and learn a little about life along the rivers.
