Margo was a 5-year old who returned from a trip to Yellowstone. As she described the geysers, she couldn’t recall the name of the most famous one. She looked at the ceiling for a moment and then sang, “O, come all ye faithful.”
Remember Flint Ridge Don? His son Gary bought a trailer house and set it on Flint Ridge. He is moving into it on Flint Ridge, following his father’s footsteps.

In visiting with a Mr. Peer from Branson, Missouri at the wood working show, he told me he was moving to Kalona. I asked, “Where?” “In the Nisly house west of the golf course,” he said. “My mother-in-law came from Kalona and was one of Will Snyder’s girls.” She would be a sister to our own Johnny Snyder. They were moving here to be closer to his folks in Iowa City who are not well.
A tour of 15 people this week were from South Korea. They really enjoyed a meal at Sylvia Ropp’s and Kalona shopping.
Dave Full, a former Yoder employee, with his wife are the owners of the Planet X family amusement center in Iowa City. It is located in the old Jack’s building. One thing that attracted me was the beautiful indoor miniature golf course. If you haven’t seen it, take a look. Dave is as exuberant as he was when he wrote advertising for Yoder, Inc.
Congratulations to Redigers Service Center. It just doesn’t seem possible they have been on that corner for 20 years.
Marland Shetler said there was a yo-yo champion in the Townhouse. He won the title in Seattle, Washington. Jordan Blakely was 12 years old when he won.

Leo Reugsegger from northwest Wellman was a buyer at the Ron Brenneman shop Monday. He gets around real good and says he reads these lines out on the farm.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he’s buying.
The Myron Schulz’s from Bloomfield, Montana were in the community this past week. He has been engaged in M.D.S. work in the past years.
It is easier to get older than it is to get wiser.
The word for the week is trajectory. It means to throw across or a path of an object moving through space. Example is a fly ball - meaning to throw across. When I am at a ball game, I guess I fail to think about using this word. Sounds funny - the basketball player does trajectory to the basket. Maybe you will find a better way to phrase it.
