Kathie's sister-in-law told her about St. Joseph. It seems she buried him in her yard and they sold two different homes. Kathie bought a statue and it says on the box St. Joseph, the worker. [ have faith that their home will sell when God decides it's O.K. She is impatient and will try ~:~ anything, so they have left for home. She plans to bury him and see what happens. If it is success- -~. ful I will let you know. Some one at the pancake breakfast told us a friend had sold their home that way. On the Lighter Side - Lola was driving down the highway, when she hit the back of a car. Weeping tears of outrage, the driver insisted she had given a signal, before her car was struck. "Look honey" she said, "I saw your arm go up, then down, then straight out, then in circles; "Are you trying to tell me that was a signal?" "For Heaven's sake" she replied, "The first three signals were wrong. Didn't you see me erase them?" Food For Thought - Psalm lo3:19 The Lord has estab- lished His throne in Heaven, and His Kingdom rules over all. P.S. Thanks to ALL the committees for ALL the work you did for Fall Festival, putting up the chairs, the stage, the food, the parade, and the excellent entertain- ment, especially the dueling pianos. They sure held the crowd. Thank God for good weather. Drawing Winner Linda Dierker won the drawing for the free his- tory book given away by the Mt. Pulaski Historical Society at the Fall Festi- val.
