New article: Here’s an article about Barbara’s Mennonite childhood on the farm.

A footbridge high above Pequea Creek provided a shortcut to Uncle John’s farm. We also used that bridge to go visit our grandparents who lived with Uncle John. Narrow boards hung on two cables, with two more cables for handgrips, but no sides.   (Read more…)

♠   In theory, there’s a difference between theory and practice. But in practice, there’s not.

♠  Of all my wife’s relatives, I like myself the best.

♠  Wife to husband: “But I thought that after you retired, you’d work more on becoming a better person…”  (Oh oh…)

♠  People need to know that you care before they care what you know. James F. Hind

  1. Barbara, I enjoyed your memories from the farm. I could identify with every one, excepting that we plugged all the rat holes but two, one on the inside and one outside. We ran a tube from the old truck’s exhaust pipe into the hole inside the chicken house and we stood outside to bop the rats. Our dog got too much exhaust fumes and keeled over.


    1. Dan, Hope you get this. Fun to recall some ofthestrange things we did growing up. Just got this I-Pad fr0m daughter so am having to learn and get away from my simpler lifestyle that we try to work on.

      Greetings to Joy. Barbara
