Hello everyone – I hope all are still staying healthy and safe. Being at home all the time isn’t fun but it is necessary. We’ve had so much rain and being quarantined at the same time makes it hard to stay upbeat. I do appreciate the sun when we get it.
I hope everyone enjoyed reading the story from Russell Yonts. I could visualize the whole thing happening as I read it.
We had two fun phone calls recently. Mike’s brother and his wife, Jeff and Cindy Wenning of Coldwater, Ohio, called one afternoon. It was great talking with them. There was also a call from Cherie Freisthler of Niceville, Fla. It’s always nice to hear from loved ones and friends.
Mike’s brother, Kevin Wenning of Coldwater, Ohio, is still getting The Mountain Eagle. Hello to Kevin. Our sons should start getting their subscriptions to The Mountain Eagle this week. Hello Greg, Mark and Heather, and Brad and Becky.
I’ve been sending note cards to people. It’s just a quick way to stay in touch with everyone. Sometimes staying at home makes you feel like you’re the only ones in your little quarantined world. Hopefully the summer will be an improvement.
I started making a list of places I want to go when we are allowed to travel. First on this list, I want to see the sons and daughters. I figured out it’s been four months since we’ve seen Brad and Becky; three months since we’ve seen Mark and Heather; and two months since we’ve seen Greg. Definitely need to see the sons.
I have kept myself from doing online shopping. There are things I want but I can live without. I may do online shopping in May.
It was good to hear that schools are coming up with ways to celebrate the 2020 graduates. I know it’ll be different for the students, but the acknowledgement and congratulations will be there.
I want to wish my cousin Randy Brown a happy birthday today. I want to wish my sister, Susan Ware, a happy birthday on Thursday.

This week’s quote is: “What I love most about staying home to self-quarantine is who I share it with.”
