What a wonderful day, Sunday, the weather was great. I just couldn’t believe what a difference 12 hours could make. Saturday, June 30th was a very hot, humid day - but the next day Sunday, July 1st was nearly 40 degrees different. My family and I went to Winona to the Steamboat Days and it was almost chilly. They have a big parade and it was great, almost 3 hours long and people!! I had never seen that many at a parade. After it was over we all walked back (two blocks) to my daughter Karen’s house for our picnic, as Ed had put a 10 lb. chicken on the grill. Thanks Vickie and was it good. Of course we had potato salad, hot dogs, hamburgers, salads, you name it and we had it. By 5:00 p.m. we were all starved, so eat we did and enjoyed the parade, the food, visiting and the beautiful weather.

During the children’s Christmas play at church, Joseph asked the innkeeper if he and Mary could have a room. “No, we have no room,” said the child playing the innkeeper. Then he forgot his next line, so he quickly added, “But why don’t you come on in and have a drink.”

When people over seventy-five get married, the guests don’t throw rice, they throw vitamins.

Sure Thing
Each year brings cut new calenders
In every kind of shape and size
But whatever calendar you choose
It will not change how fast time flies

Hints

~Muffin tins make excellent ice cube trays. The larger cubes last longer. Put them in a punch bowl or take along on picnics.

~Place unripened tomatoes with other fruit, especially pears, to speed up ripening.

~Sweet corn ears are ripe and ready for harvest when the top of the cob is round, not pointed.

A Goat Story
Bill bought a goat;indeed he did-
A highland goat, just for the kids,
This highland goat was feeling fine.
Ate three shirts right off the line.
Bill got a club and broke his back
And tied him to the railroad track.
The Sio .....

The American Dream
Yesterday, I walked across a rolling field
Once battled scared and torn
Imagined I could hear the voices of soldiers
Their faces tired and worn
What did they feel, th .....

My heart goes out to all those people that have flood problems and the poor farmers trying to get their hay up. Last week Wednesday four of us girls were going to Stewartville to pick up my sister and between Wykof .....
