The Hutterites Are Leaving
So long to the Hutterites! At least that zany and high spirited bunch from the King Colony down toward Lewistown. “American Colony: Meet the Huterites”, the 10 episode series that debuted back in May, is presenting the last program from the series tomorrow (Tuesday) evening at 8 on the National Geographic Channel. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed watching the antics and adventures of these 59 Hutterites who make up the King Colony. I’ve watched probably 7 or 8 out of this 10 series adventure in farming. I missed the 2nd or 3rd in the series back in the beginning because we had a power outage here in Shelby. (I’ll be blogging about another power outage later today). Back to the Hutterites…the executive producer of “American Colony: Meet the Hutterites”, Jeff Collins, will be joining me this afternoon (Monday) at 4:35 on the Puffman Show to talk about this outstanding and intriguing series. If you caught last Tuesday’s episode, you already know that Claudia (the voice of rebellion in my opinion) has enrolled in college at the College of Great Falls. I can’t wait to see what happens this week and how long, do you think, before Claudia’s mom, the “bountiful Betha” blows a gasket. I look for her to implode and/or explode any day now.Claudia looks like her mother, only 110 years younger!. My personal observation of life on this, what I would call a “somewhat liberal” colony is…you can pretty much do what you want when you want to do it and defy authority without any serious repercussions. I wish I would have had it this easy as a kid. Heck, I wish I had it this easy now! See you this afternoon at 4:35 with TV producer Jeff Collins to discuss tomorrow evening’s finale of “American Colony; Meet the Hutterites”. And incidentally, if any of you King Colony Hutterites are reading my Puffman blog…I like your harvest parties & your wedding celebrations, and your meals look wonderful & tasty. Toss in the good spirited jostling with your fellow members, and outside of the hard physical labor, I think I might fit right in. I already have the beard, although that hard physical work would be of concern. Perhaps I could run the colony radio station!
