Where have I heard Bemidji before ?
Was that in FARGO?

I am not aufait with American / Canadian accents, but IIRC the lass that was the Police Chief, I could sit and listen to her talk all day.
I think she was from Minnesota.

I'm afraid that Canadians are the only English speaking people without accents, eh? Unless you mean Newfies.

Bemidji it was, in Fargo.
Carrie Coon (Gloria Burgle)
I could sit and listen to her all day.
Minnesotans seem to tilt their words up at the end of sentences,
as if enquiring. very engaging.

I've actually been to Bemidji. I once stayed for a week with a friend who lives in Fosston, about fifty miles from there, and Bemidji has the nearest airport (and the nearest lot of other things, since Fosston is a dinky little burg). My friend's mother talked just like the people in Fargo. Oh yah, you betcha.

Fosston IS the big city to some in that area.... At least to those of us who collect Clearwater County and are always looking for stuff from the smaller towns, like Clearbrook. Bemidji was really a big city in family lore from 80-100 years ago. could start an old real photo postcard thread and show some old views in that area. Nice to see the guy with his stamp up there!
