We're on the list - but they didn't receive any vials last week or this week so far.

I found out about it because someone told my husband. Apparently it was posted on the Elk County Department facebook page, but that never showed up on my news feed.  :(
The Friends of the Howard Library held a coffee/cookie fund raiser this week. They raised over $600.

I don't know that you've been shunned; I think there's no conversation any more. The obits catch most of the visitors. I hope you had a very Merry Christmas. We did. The weather's been wonderful the last couple of days - highs 60+.

Oh, my!

Talk about memory making! Not sure I would want to create this kind.  ;)

I am glad you are back home and more comfortable. How's your range of movement? Are you back to what it used to be?

Prayers your way.
The Good Old Days / Just for fun - old pictures

My youngest sister, Rebecca, was cleaning out some old boxes and found some old photos. There's Leslie and Bertie Wisner with Mary Kay, Marty, Debbie and Judy; then Mary Arlene Wisner Lees in Boxholm, Iowa early 1960's; and all of us girls, also Boxholm, early 1960s.
Thank you!

It's been a good day so far. The weather is wonderful - most of the snow has melted.
Happy Birthday, friend!

I'm so glad 2018 is over. So many "not" times and events. 2019 will be much better. I'm ready for it. I wish all of you a Happy New Year!

I'm one of the ones that "gave up." Even when I posted activities about school or town, I felt attacked as others would tell me how biased and unhealthy those institutions were. I just got tired of the battle.
Wilma Jane Weyrauch passed away on October 18, 2017 at her home in Howard, Kansas.  She was 87 years old and was born on March 1, 1930 in her parents' home in Braman, Oklahoma, the third child of Pickney and Leota (Lowrey) Hancock.
