Well, we are all getting cabin fever. We have a few more weeks to go so hang in there. Spring is just around the corner. First thing you know, we will be mowing the yards, weedeating, hopefully have something in a garden. I plan on a very small one. Last year, my garden was terrible, so I will not plant very much this year to have it flunk on me. I lost all my cans and canners in our garage fire, so I would have to start over and it is not worth it. Just try to have a few fresh things to eat.

Have you laughed today? You are richer today than yesterday..if you laughed often, given much, forgiven still more. If you have made stepping stones out of stumbling blocks; if you have thought more in terms of you than me; if you have managed to be cheerful even if you were weary, or if you have given a smile to someone who had none left to give.

Have a happy day.

Stormie VanMeenen and David Haller of Lakewood visited lately with Gene, Linda and David VanMeenen, Ray and Helen Cline, Jessica and Kyleeah Williams. They also attended the memorial for their uncle Jim Hill.

A thought for today: “This is the beginning of a new day. God has given me this day to use as I will. I can waste it or use it for good. What I do today is important because I’m exchanging a day of my life for it. When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever leaving in its place something I have traded for it. I want it to be gain, not loss; good, not evil; success, not failure; in order that I shall not regret the price I paid for it.” UNKNOWN

Happy birthday to Stormie VanMeenen on Dec. 17. Stormie and David of Lakewood visited Thanksgiving with her parents, Gene and Linda VanMeenen and grandparents, Ray and Helen Cline and Jessica and Kyleeah Williams. They also attended Selena Black’s wedding.

Larry Cline and lady from Columbus visited the weekend with parents, Ray and Helen Cline and Jessica and Kyleeah Williams.

Thanks go out to the Lewisville Fire Department, Woodsfield Fire Department and the Summerfield Fire Department. Without you, there would have been two homes gone. We lost everything in the garage and the camper, but the homes were saved. Thank you. And thanks to Ricky Russell for coming out the next day to see if we were okay. Thanks for the neighbors that stopped in. We lost a push mower and three riding mowers, so our yard may get tall. But we are all okay.

We attended the Ohio Rural Letter Carriers State Convention in Westlake, Ohio in July. Last week, Aug. 10 through the 17, we attended the National Rural Letters Convention in St. Louis, MO. There is a little over 4100 union members in Ohio and we get to send 42 to the National. I was one of those 42 to get to go. My husband is in the auxiliary; so he got to go, too. Total there were 1,060 delegates and 200 auxiliary delegates. There were 79 juniors. A total of 1667 was in attendance. Carriers’ children and grandchildren can go, so our granddaughter and great-granddaughter went to the State. They really enjoyed it.

No use complaining of the heat, does no good. Just think, in a few months there could be snow. I did have a pretty nice garden but doesn’t look too good now. It stays so wet. Last year, so dry. Guess hard to please! We went to State Convention at Westlake last week; it was nice. Jessica got to go and help out with the juniors and Kyleeah was with the juniors. They had a ball. As Kyleeah was leaving, she said, “I’ll see you next year”.

Jessica and Kyleeah got to spend a night with her sister, Stormie and David, at Lakeside. They do a lot of neat things.
