Its a little cloudy on Sept. 9, but the laundry is getting dry. We could use a shower.

Our trip to Mio, Mich., to visit daughter Betty and family was very much enjoyed. My three sisters, Liz Yoder, Clara Kauffman and Sylvia Miller, joined us one afternoon for a nice visit. They brought coffee and snacks. Also, Joes brother John and Esther had supper with us the evening of Sept. 5. Grandsons Norman and Ruth Ann and Nathan and Ruth came down from Ossineke, Mich., the evening of Sept. 6 to visit also. We left for Mio the morning of Sept. 5 and returned the evening of Sept. 7.

Daughter Betty, Melvin and grand-daughter Lorena plan to come down from Michigan Sept. 12 for the wedding of Marcia Byler and David Yoder. Our family plans to get together for homemade ice cream and snacks the evening of Sept. 11 in honor of Melvin and Betty.

Our heartfelt sympathy goes out to the Allen and Linda M. Miller family in the loss of their son who was killed in an accident of Sept. 4.

The bloodmobile at Joes Window Shop is Sept. 14. We will be serving a chicken dinner to all donors. Hours are from 1-8 p.m.

There will be a garage sale Sept. 18 and 19 at Joes Window Shop at the corner of Shedd Road and Route 168. There will be donuts and fry pies for sale plus a bake sale.

Mrs. Ervin T. Yoder of Guys Mills, Pa., is very low from her cancer. Mrs. Harvey Byler of Newcomb Road is not feeling well from her cancer. Our singing group visited them the evening of Sept. 10.

Supper guests at Dan and Sylvia Millers on Sept. 8 were Bob and Sylvia Hershberger and children, Perry, Katie Ann Miller and sons, Joe Jr., Saloma and daughters, Aden, Rosanna Yoder and boys, Danny, Ray and Betty, Matt and Betty and boys, Danny and Karen and two little girls and Joe and I. We had grilled chicken and burgers, salad, pudding, cake and snacks. We all sat around the campfire after supper. All to soon that will come to an end.

There will be a benefit live and silent auction and dinner at Joes Window Shop for two schools on Sept. 20. Serving time will begin at 3:30 p.m. Barbecue chicken will be served. All are welcome to come.

Happy 14th birthday goes out to my granddaughter Sarah on Sept. 10.

Youve reached the age when:

You feel more at home in an antique shop than in electronic stores.

Youve bought a loaf of bread, a box of cereal and a bag of marshmallows and the bagger asks if you need help putting it in the car.

Your grandson asks you which of Jesus disciples you used to hang around with.

You and your teeth sleep separately.

They just dont make things like they used to.


Old age is when it takes longer to rest than to get tired.

A man wrote to ask if his dog would be allowed to stay there. A few days later, he received the following reply:

Dear Sir, Ive been in the hotel business for over 30 years. Ive never had to call the police to eject a disorderly dog in the small hours in the morning. No dog has ever attempted to pass a bad check. Never has a dog set the bedclothes on fire from smoking. And Ive never found a hotel towel in a dogs suitcase. Your dog is welcome. P.S. If he will vouch for you, you can come, too.

You all have a good week.
