    Very nice story, I enjoyed it very much. I like the way he writes, you can tell that he has lived his story. Seems like a warm and caring person.

    Wow! I enjoyed that. I could picture being in the middle of the game, and feeling what the students felt. That was very well written. I can’t wait to read the next one!

    so glad to finally get on the things in your news letter .Before that my old computer would not bring up anything I tapped(?) on We stopped taking the local paper several years ago so was very disappointed to not be able to get ” the Amish Cook” from here .One of my sons and my daughter have thistleberry Farm and are very involved for supplies with the Amish over at Waukarusa, Indiana. I have found that Amish people are soooo smart.
    If you come over this way be sure and stop at Das Essenhaus on US 20 by Middlesbury. I better stop or I will write a book of amish activities in this part of Indiana. I do recommend visiting Shipshewanna
    . If you come this way to our Amish Country , do it in the summer so you can take the tour of the Quilt Gardens(flower beds)of all of our amish country shipsewanna is the place to go. and plan at least a week there.

    Sincerely Pearl Frushour

    I did so enjoy hearing from Teacher Mahlon again. His weekly writings several years ago were always interesting and a joy to read. His students are very lucky to have such a fine teacher and wordsmith. Hope your situation enables you to bring back Teacher Mahlon on a somewhat regular basis sometime in the near future with his thoughts and stories.
