Two Fun Weekends Talk about excite- ment-----we've had it. Our vol- leyball team beat Lutheran at the State Volleyball Tournament at Bloomington as I went to see them lorence's play. The distance to our seating area Crner was so far that Ron had to push me in my wheel chair. I appreciated the ride. I returned on Saturday to see Mt. Pulaski play again and receive the runner-up trophy. Congratulations to this year's team. Then the next weekend, Kathie and all of her family -- (except her husband) and even my great grand- daughter, Ava, drove from Minne- sota for a family wedding in Spring- field. We enjoyed seeing everyone. They left early Sunday morning. The baby's mother, Sherry had never been to visit the relatives in Mt. Pulaski and Springfield area before. I think she was impressed: They all came on Saturday morn- ing to see what was happening at Christmas on Vinegar Hill. I stayed at the Legion Home from 7 to 3:30. It was great to have so many people stop by and say "hi". On the Lighter Side - A mother was busy making preparations for her daughter's wedding. She asked her husband to buy books of stamps that had the word "Love" on them for the invitations. When he told the Postal Clerk what he wanted, she said, "I'm sorry, they don't come in books. All I can give you is love in the sheets. Foodfor Thought- 1 John 7:9 If we confess our sins, God is faithful and just to forgive us our sins.
