It has been a different kind of Summer for me. I have not accomplished near what I have wanted to concerning the old house and getting it ready to live in, and mostly due to be ill. I have decided that the illness has been caused by the dust of the old house; at least much of it.
My wife (Madge) and I have decided to buy a double wide manufactured home, and set down on the old farm stead. We are waiting now for everything to get approved and such.
It won ‘t be too long and school will begin again. I have had my physical and passed it and looking forward to the new School year.
It has been a great Summer in that we were able to go to both Youth Camp and Children’s Camp at Baptist Hill in Mount Vernon, MO. We were blessed to serve the CGL’s and campers as cooks and kitchen help. It has been our privilege to do so for the past four years. We hear that there were 24 children who trusted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior in Children’s Camp, and a few less than that at Youth Camp with other decisions being made as well.
If things go well I may use this site as a daily log of driving the bus during the School year. If I don’t every day, maybe I can at least once per week.
My wife and I celebrated our 37th Wedding Anniversary just last week. We went and spent two days in Branson. Nice place to visit, especially in November through February, but rather busy in July. Really Branson is a great place to visit for family relaxation and fun.
See you next time. Continue to have a great Summer.
