Teacher Mahlon’s column will return next week. He’s really busy right now preparing for a new addition to his house. Well, yes, he is building a new addition to his house, but that is for a new addition. It’s not really my news to share, but he gave me permission to let you all know that he and Marietta are expecting their fifth child sometime in early October. So congratulations to both of them! I guess very soon I can swap stories with Mahlon about newborns:), although he has a four child head-start on me. Still, best wishes to Mahlon and Marietta as they await the arrival of another. The above photo shows some of the work he is doing on his house. And here are some other scenes from their farmstead. Note the phone shed that he uses next to the corn, the corn stalks tower over the shed this time of year!
