CAPTION: Twilight bathes an old Amish farmstead outside Geneva, Indiana.
This brings back memories. I remember reading Elizabeth's articles in the McPherson Sentinel back when I lived in Buhler, KS. For 10 years I lived only 25 minutes from Yoder, but never got the chance to really explore that Amish community. I did however work with a lovely Holdeman Mennonite lady in McPherson. She shared many stories of her family with me.
Hi, Vicki - That goes back a long way, although I wonder if you read it in the Newton Kansan? If the Sentinel carried the column it was only very, very briefly! - Kevin
hmm, I worked at a bank in McPherson and they always subscribed to a couple of different newspapers. I know one was the McPherson Sentinel but it's very possible I was reading one from Newton as well. Either way, I know I used to love reading Elizabeth's column.
Is Elizabeth's column a 'new' entry (as in did you retype this from the original or did you just cut & paste it here)?
Because you need to 'reformat' it, it is spaced all wrong. Look at the last word in the paragraph below. Although it made me chuckle I do not think that is what you had in mind?
"To do a quilt is expensive. You have to buy the material, thread, needles and prepare those good noon meals that are part of a quilting bee, plus refreshments that are served in the morning and the afternoon. The work goes quicker as there is lots of sin"
Thanks, Gert, I did a little reformatting to my cut n paste, sin is removed:)
When we lived in Fort Wayne I loved having 2 newspapers to read. Naturally - I'm a newspaper freak.
Thank you for this column from Elizabeth. I hate to say this but I always enjoyed her column much more than I do Lovina's these days. Especially the recipes.
