They brought tall Shasta Daisies. They brought Fox Gloves enough to outfit the whole pack. They brought They brought tall Shasta Daisies. They brought Fox Gloves enough to outfit the whole pack. They brought Campanulas that will ring for many seasons. And they brought the delights of shared meals, shared memories, and an abundance of good stories we had not yet heard. These two were super house guests.

Nan and Eric were our first of the season, and if they are an indicator, we are going to have a very good time. *Note to self of Things I get to do today: Get a light-weight blanket for the guest bed. This is no time for a six-inch down comforter! ... Read more →

Family Treasures

Posted on July 1, 2015 by Tami Erwin, Sister #4684

Last weekend, we drove to Wichita Falls, Texas to celebrate the 95th birthday of Dave's granddad, Albert. Albert still lives alone (though he does have help with meals and cleaning), bowls frequently, attends church regularly and loves to be surrounded by his children and grandchildren. How often do you get five generations in one picture?

Albert worked his entire career for the MKT Railroad, as a telegrapher and Train Master. MKT stands for Missouri-Kansas-Texas, but the railroad was familiarly known as the K-T, or "The Katy". Just a few years ago, one of the local schools asked Albert to visit a classroom and demonstrate the telegraph for the students using the telegraph key he still owns. He repeated his demonstration for us this weekend. He can recall the dots and dashes of Morse code and send a message faster than I can text it ... Read more →

Fiscal Year End 2015

Posted on July 1, 2015 by Rosemarie Thompson, Sister #6055

The past few days, I’ve been at work almost from sunup to sundown. I’m not sure I even remember what my garden looks like. (I don’t even want to think about my veggies getting overripe on the vine while I slave away at a desk.) Yes, folks, it’s the annual fiscal year end crunch time, but it seems that this year is worse than it’s been in several years. To be honest, I’ve been so frazzled at work (yes, that’s a picture of me above LOL), so exhausted and overwhelmed, that I actually forgot to prepare an article for you guys for today! And last night, after getting home at sunset, I still needed to deal with the monthly bill-paying exercise (yes, I get paid once a month), so I had no time (and no energy left in my brain) to create an informative – or even entertaining – article for you. And for that, I apologize ... Read more →

Stardate 1 - a return to cyberspace

Posted on June 30, 2015 by Shelley Krehbiel-Klein, Sister #5152

It's weird that I've been missing from my own blog. But for those of you still reading, thanks for not pointing that out. The year has been an odd one for us. Busy, but not satisfying in the way it has been before. That has kept me from writing. I have always wanted to be a positive voice, but that got hard over the last few months, so rather than weigh anyone down, I got quiet. It's time to break the silence and get out in front of the world again.

So let's begin. I love my life, I love the people in my life. They are kind, thoughtful and appreciative of our life's work. Or at least my perception is they are, and that's all that matters ... Read more →
