I Grow Um...She Cans Um!

Would you believe 58 jars of tomatoes in a day!

This will provide good eating in soups, stuffed peppers and tacos through the winter.

Youth Group Reunion

Last Saturday members of the Youth Groups we served in the late 70's and early 80's honored us at an event at Licking Valley. It was an opportunity to reminisce and share memories of their days growing up and our days serving. Here Dan and I broke into a song we used to sing together.

Stan Eng, a young man who became one of our extended family members and is a professional videogapher interviewed us seperately and showed the edited version as part of the tribute. I love hearing Pat describe life as the wife of the Youth Leader and stories from her stint in the girls dormatory.

...and here a group shot of those who attended. A wonderful evening it was!
