We have been having some beautiful late summer days with weather that reminds us of fall is almost here. Sad to say many of us on rushing on with life and by the time we get to an age to appreciate God’s wonderful creation we are fortunate we can out to appreciate it! We had a picnic lunch today on the patio and it was perfect weather. The children enjoy anything different.

I hope each of you had a nice holiday weekend and it is interesting how many people do not know what Labor Day represents. Despite all the turmoil in the world today I am glad I live in America.

We extend sympathy to the family of Evelyn Johnston of Maywood. She has many family members in the area and she and her late husband, Harold, lived east of Maywood. Evelyn was 93 and her memorial service was on Thursday with burial in the Maywood Cemetery.

My husband, Marvin, had a busy and fun birthday on Thursday. His sister, Evelyn Brink of Quincy came out and we had lunch on the patio because the weather was wonderful. His sister, Dorothy Featherlin phoned from Pennsylvania and that was a nice surprise. Bobby and Rachel, Luke, Jacob, and Elijah were here for dinner in the evening, and the children get so excited about the cake and gifts that it always makes for a festive fun time. He received many nice cards and enjoyed those as well. He doesn’t get out much now and enjoyed all the attention and well wishes.

It is a sad time for folks in the Ewing area with the death of Ned Daggs. Ned was well known for his community work and cattle expertise. We extend caring thoughts to his family and those close to him.

Steve and Carlene Booher celebrated their 49th anniversary with dinner out at Texas Roadhouse in Quincy. We wish them many years of happiness together.

Another young man from the Ewing area passed away this week. We extend sympathy to his family as well. Glenn Smyser leaves many family and friends in our area.
