    Hi Kevin — I have a question for you and Lovina. At every important meal there is always mashed potatoes, dressing and gravy. (My favorites!) With so many people eating, how does Lovina produce the amount of gravy needed? Does she use her canned meats as a “starter” or what?!

    Your Memorial Day gathering sounds very nice, Lovina! My daughter and son-in-law were in town visiting for the holiday. We also gathered together as a family to celebrate her birthday 10 days early; she’ll be 28 on June 8, so my oldest is 10 years older than your oldest. 🙂

    I’m so glad to hear about the progress being made in your home since the fire. You have been in my prayers. I’m so sorry to learn of the death of the young man in your former community.

    Thank you for sharing your marble squares recipe. I’ve been looking for something different to bake for the family that’s quick and easy, and this will fit the bill very nicely!

    Our local family who sells fruit every year also reported no fruit for sale this year as they come from MI and the crop failed. Don’t know what folks around here are going to do as MI was the main supplier around here.

      I heard suppliers are ordering from Poland for Peaches this year.

    it is always a bright spot in the day to read the column. It is also nice for Kevin to keep us updated a bit more throughout the week. It is a breath of fresh air to hear what some normal everyday loving folks are doing. I do not know if i should have gotten the info in the column but how many miles did the family have to go in their buggy AND did they have to take more than one since everyone is getting bigger and a couple extra grown male friends are also making these trips.
    is Elizabeth still babysitting and cleaning houses or is her help needed more at home with the extra challenges the fire has brought to running the house ? I am glad that this battery issue has come up as an alert to all of us readers to be more diligent about cking these things. We have so many items with them in them. The larger batteries that are in laptops etc are probably an even bigger challenge.

    Lovina, I don’t know if you can get Missouri peaches up there or not. But last summer we got the best peaches we’ve ever had from there. They were just beautiful-large, perfectly round and hardly any bad spots. I don’t remember the name of the orchard, but when they come in this year(hopefully) I’ll post the name. Enjoy your column so much! Have a great day and God Bless You and Your Family:)
