The Meyer-Barr Building was erected in 1902. In 1908 there was a restaurant here with furnished rooms upstairs. From 1910-17, "The Lobby Saloon" was downstairs with the Eagles Hall located upstairs. In 1923, the "Sheridan Music Company" occupied the store and the Knights of Columbus were upstairs. By 1927, the "Heiman Commercial College" was upstairs - through 1954. After 1930, the first floor saw "The Melody Shop" and John W. Scott "Chiropodist." In 1950, Frank Zuck ran a boarding house and "Zuck's Home Cooked Meals." Sheridan Stationery Books & Gallery opened in 1957.

Greetings!

We want to wish you all a very happy and safe 4th of July.  We are giving ourselves and our employees a long weekend to celebrate. Sheridan Stationery will be closed July 4th, 5th, and 6th. We will re-open at 9:00 am on Monday, July 7th. Enjoy the holiday with your family and friends, I know we will.

July is always a busy month and this one is no exception. Fourth of July, Rodeo, Farmer's Market, Third Thursday Street Festival, Crazy Days, and much more. I hope you will also find time to relax and read a good book. We have tons of great novels and non-fiction books to choose from. We also have games, books, and workbooks to keep the kids busy and engaged this summer. Come on down and shop all the great stores on Main Street. There are a couple of new stores that have opened up and are offering some wonderful merchandise.

 
 

       Book Signing for "Shots Fired"

 by C.J. Box

 Saturday, July 12th at 11:00 AM

C. J. Box will be the Grand Marshall for the Sheridan Wyo Rodeo Parade this year. We will also be hosting him for a signing for his new book of short stories that goes on sale July 15th. Be sure to add this event to your other Rodeo festivities. You'll be happy you did.

Bestseller Box, author of "Stone Cold " and 13 other Joe Pickett novels, proves in his first story collection that he's also adept at the short form. The 10 selections, which include four Joe Pickett tales, are filled with Box trademarks: drama, darkness, surprise twists, and a palpable sense of a wild, magnificent, and sometimes cruel Wyoming. Add to those attributes a profound poignancy, as in "Blood Knot, " which captures in five pages the unbreakable bond between a grandfather and granddaughter. "Pirates of Yellowstone, " "Shots Fired, " and "The End of Jim and Ezra" introduce less familiar aspects of the Western landscape: Eastern Europeans looking for work in our national parks, solitary Basque sheepherders, and the trapper mountain men of the mid-1800s. One entry, "Le Sauvage Noble, " may be a bit too savage for some. But Box fans will be happy to see that Nate Romanowski has a story all his own, "The Master Falconer, " with just a cameo from Pickett. "Author tour.

Switchel

 

Switchel is a curious beverage that is also known as Haymaker's Punch. Back when haying was a very energetic occupation, farm wives would bring gallons of Switchel to the men working in the fields. Popularized by Vermont doctor D.C. Jarvis in his best-selling 1958 book "Folk Medicine: A Vermont Doctor's Guide to Good Health, this honey and apple cider vinegar drink became a must-have beverage.

This is a great thirst quencher and is very simple to make. Much healthier and more effective than sugary sports drinks and easy enough to regularly keep on the top shelf of your refrigerator, Switchel might just become your favorite go-to summer or post-exercise drink.

 

cup honey

cup apple cider vinegar

1 tablespoon sliced fresh gingerroot (optional)

  1. Pour 2 quarts of water into a large pitcher. Combine the honey and apple cider vinegar in a bowl and stir well to combine. If either ingredient is cold, you might need to warm them slightly or the honey will not mix well. Add the mixture to the water. If you like a sweeter drink, add more honey. If you prefer a less sweet version, add a bit more vinegar.

  2. If you're a ginger fancier, add the gingerroot slices. Keep the pitcher in your refrigerator for a hot day.

 

 

Broiled Peaches

 

5 large ripe freestone peaches

2 tablespoons butter

2 tablespoons honey

cup plain yogurt

 

  1. Preheat the broiler to high.

  2. Cut the peaches in half lengthwise and remove the pits. Place cut side up in a shallow broiler-proof baking dish that is the right size to hold the fruit halves without having them rolling all over the place. If necessary, shave a tiny bit off the bottom to help them stand up straight.

  3. Combine the butter and honey in a small bowl and microwave on high for about 25 seconds, or until the butter is melted. Pour the honey butter over the peach halves. If not baking right away, cover and refrigerate.

  4. Place the peaches under the broiler and watch carefully. Broil until the butter melts and bubbles, 3 to 5 minutes or longer, depending on the temperature of the peaches when you start to broil. You want the honey and butter to brown but not burn.

  5. Spoon a small amount of yogurt on each peach half and drizzle juices from the pan on top. Serve immediately.

 

 

 

 

 
You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness.  You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism.  ~Erma Bombeck
