Wind and then more wind, but it didn’t stop us from having fun. Last Saturday my daughter Diane came down from Rochester so daughter Vickie, Diane and myself drove out to the Amish for more pickles and jam and then we were off to Wal-Mart, did a little shopping, if you could push your way through, what a crowd. We were gone only a couple of hours as Vickie had to watch the corn-dryer for Dennis. When we got back to Vickie’s house she told the maid to make pizza for supper and can that maid ever make good pizza. She made a couple of different kinds and the best one was the one with sauerkraut. My son and wife came for supper and after the pizza was gone we all played cards, what a fun time we had.

A minister went to call on a family who attended his church. The family had just bought a big mean-looking dog, and it was standing in the yard, growling. The minister stopped outside the gate. The lady of the house came to the door and called, “come on in.” “Will the dog bite?” the preacher asked. “I don’t know,” the woman said, “That’s what we want to find out.”

Ole says, its awful to grow old by yourself. Lena hasn’t had a birthday in seven years.

Holidays are confusing. You’d think Thanksgiving would be in September, right after the kids go back to school.

Christians are told to walk in God’s love, not just talk about it.

Imagination is something that sits up with dad and mom the first time their teenager stays out late.

There are still a few things you can get for a dollar, like nickels, dimes and quarters.

This is one of those things that is not known. What happens to the pencil by the telephone.

Cars
The Packard was the first automobile to cross the American Continent under its own power. The trip in 1903, required 52 days.

Mom’s House Rules
If you open it, close it.
If you turn it on, turn it off.
If you unlock it, lock it.
If you break it, fix it.
If you can’t fix it, report it.
If you borrow it, return it.
If you make a mess, clean it up.
If you move it, put it back.
If it doesn’t concern you,
don’t mess with it.
If you don’t know, ask.

Pioneer Quilts
Pioneer quilts were said to be
Made only for utility,
But they were made for beauty too.
By work-worn hands
who loved each hue,
And also .....

Did you read Charlie Warners article in the paper last week and how true it is. Why do we parents let our children drink so much pop and eat so much deep-fried, greasy food and then wonder about their te .....

The Old Country Schoolhouse

With faded paint peeling,it stands all alone.
The door is ajar,all the windowpanes gone,
all about, only silence,save the wind in the trees.
Whispering softl .....
