You wont believe me, but I was gone again this week, two days in a row. Wednesday our cousins (ladies only) met up at sister Dollys in Goodhue. There was nine of us plus Dollys two girls. We chatted all day, took time off for a lively lunch, took pictures, had afternoon coffee, plus a chocolate dessert, which was so good. We left home at 9:15 a.m. and got back home at 5:30 p.m. What a great time we all had. The next day Thursday, daughter Karen came from Winona and her and I went to Decorah, had to wait about 15 minutes, as they are still working the the road and when we got downtown Decorah couldnt get through main street as they told us of the fire they had at the Sherwin Paint Store. They had five different towns help fight the blaze, must of been very scary for them. We got our business done, then drove over to Cresco shopped some more and then home we came. Im still tired, but fun we had.

Daniel was married to a wonderful woman, but his mother-in-law was a holy terror. After the older woman passed away, the priest stopped by to offer condolences.

Oh, I really do love music,
and how I love to sing.
And when Im all alone at home,
my how the rafters ring!
And when my children were young and cuddled to my breast, theyd whisper, please sing, mama,
twas then I sang my best.
But years pass by so very fast, my familys gone and grown,
so when I do my singing,
I solo all alone.
I tried to join the choir twice.
They were to call me soon.
The try-outs were eight years ago
and so I just presume . . .
Perhaps they just plain forgot
to get in touch with me,
but still I make a joyful noise
and sing a brand new song.
I practice what the Psalmist says,
though every note is wrong,
but I dont worry,
for I know God listens to my heart,
where every note is right on key
and perfect from the start.
So I rejoice with .....

A tribute to teachers

God gave to you
the rarest gift
an understanding heart.
A gentle kindly manner
your wisdom to impart.
Oh, some men build
with steel and iron
