What a fun day, don’t plan anything, just do what you want to. My friend Betty came the other day. She called me in the morning and said she was coming over at 1:00 p.m. When she got to my house we just decided to call on another friend of ours, which we did, but she had other plans. We talked a few minutes with her and then went on to Preston. We stopped in to see her niece, Rosalie, and talked, laughed, and visited there over an hour. On our way home we stopped at a couple of Amish homes and picked up a few things. Got home to my house about 5:00 p.m., said “thanks” and “good-bye” and she was off for her home in Ridgeway. What a fun afternoon we had.

In the evening I drove out to my son’s place and a fellow named “Samloo” came to pick up a junk car from Marty. When they got it loaded on his flat-bed trailer, we stood, talked, and laughed about nicknames when he and Marty were in school. It was getting dark before I got home, but what a great day. When I got up that morning I had nothing planned, what a surprise day I had.

Two farmers were chatting over coffee at the local diner. “I see your son is driving a car now,” said one. “How long did it take him to learn?” “About 2 1/2 cars,” replied the other farmer sadly.

It must have taken a lot of courage to discover that frog legs are edible.

Nature has an annoying way of putting the most vitamins in the foods kids refuse to eat.

Ole was spending some time in Dodge City during the frontier days. He stalked into a saloon yelling, “all right, where is da galoot that painted my horse purple?” “RIGHT HERE!” answered a vicious looking cowpoke standing about seven feet tall. “What are you going to do about it?” “Nutting,” Ole answered with a gulp, “I just wanted to let you know dat da first coat is dry.”

Hints

1. When boiling potatoes, drop a pea-size dab of margarine into the water as it comes to a boil. It stops the foam that would otherwise boil over and make a mess.

2. When you don’t have cheesecloth available to bundle up spices for pickling and other uses, tie the spices in a coffee filter instead. It works great.

3. After a big supper, you may still feel sudden hunger while watching TV. Slowly eat a plain piece of white bread without anything on .....

Do you have days when you wonder what and why you get up in the morning? Well I’ll tell you why I wonder.

Still hot and humid, but then I guess it’s summer so we better enjoy it as time is marching on. Was out driving around the other day and when I seen a field of shocks I thought to myself, remember those ho .....

Well has it been hot enough for you? Guess it wouldn’t be so bad if the humidity wasn’t so high. We did get our rain but we also got the terrible wind, which knocked our corn down here around Harmony and Ca .....

Isn’t this cool weather great. We do need rain but things really look good in gardens and fields. I was just thinking the other day about the hot, humid weather we had years ago. I remember mother baking br .....

It’s often said that a family that plays together and prays together will stay together. That may be an over simplification, but is has a lot of truth to it. Planting the right kind of a garden is one of th .....

to tell the nations of the world we still have freedom here.
We know our efforts sometime fail
but when compared to all the rest
we are proud to s .....

Yes, we have had lots of rain, but being dried out must be awful. I heard one lady say, “all I get done is paying the guy who mows my lawn, which he has been mowing twice a week.” I wonder what she would sa .....
