        Good morning all. I hope all had a good weekend. I went to church Sunday morning. It was our church picnic on Sunday evening. Our evening service was at Camp Howard, but Myrtle and I didn’t go. It was too much for old people. But I am sure it was a good time for the ones that did go.
        Church was good Sunday morning. We had visitors come to surprise Pat. They were from the school class. It was real good to see Fred and Faye Langley. Fred has been very sick. God can still work wonders. The singing was very good too.
