My grandparents lived in Braggadocio, and I would love to spend the summers with them. My mother and her 2 sisters grew up there, and I have so many memories of the place. My father and mother ran Russell's, and my mother tells me stories about the dances that were held there while she was growing up. I haven't been back to see Braggadocio since my grandfather passed away. Also, it just broke my heart to hear about the tornado that came through there. I know it has changed alot because I remember the old highschool. I found a website about Deering, and I was wondering if there was one for Braggy? I would love to see some pics and read some more history about the town.

I am told that Bert Skinner once wrote a history of Braggadocio. Does anyone have a copy? If nothing else, it should be preserved and shared with everyone who's interested in our history.

My dad was pastor there at Braggy from 1951 to 1954 and I spent my high school years there other than the last half school year when we moved. I have gobs of memories about Braggy.

I grew up in Braggadocio and often come back to visit my family. Even though it's a tiny country town, it's one of my favorite places in the world. I also like the fact that there are 9 pages of posts and all of them are positive. I'm proud to say I'm from Braggadocio, even though there is no longer a pool hall and barber shop.
