There seems to be a lot of activities now with Christmas parties and dinners and programs. Besides doing that, there are the ball games at Mid-Prairie, I.M.S. and Pathway to attend. Not a dull moment also when there is a lot of baking to be done - and don’t forget Christmas shopping.
Driving around town you can see the efforts of people putting out Christmas lights. The Historical Village, the Millers, the Neuzils and others. I can’t begin to mention them all.
Marcia Reese, a former Kalona person, has been in the hospital since October. I am sure she would enjoy a card. She is at the U of I hospital.
Freda Kurtz at PV Home told me she went to West Branch with Skip Coffmans to see the festival of trees.
In Sunday’s Press Citizen it showed a picture of a person butchering a calf at a farm near Kalona. I think the people were from Kosovo. It didn’t say whose farm it was.
In a conversation, keep in mind that you’re more interested in what you have to say than anyone else is.
Our sympathies to the Orval Troyer family. Orval was a good friendly man who worked on a lot of church buildings. Many, many years ago I remember him having a Sunday evening topic in church. He got half ways through it when the lights went out. Then he could not finish it. We always had a good laugh on that.
Between tomorrow’s dream and yesterday’s regret are today’s opportunities.
A neat scene is at the junction of #1 and #22 on the west end of Kalona. Many times at noon or towards evening you will see 12-24 barn pigeons all sitting on the electric line. They seem to just sit there and watch the traffic.
Many saw where I won the Christmas tree in our local drawing. Since it was a 12 footer, I am leaving it at the Village for all of you to see as you drive around town.
Thanks to all the people who were involved in giving the tree away.
Word of the Week
The Word for the Week is luminosity. Someone asked me where I get these words. Well, they seem to be in the dictionary. This means radiance, the brightness of a star or other body in outer space. Just look and marvel about all the stars - morning and evening stars. The past month many were looking at the galaxy of all stars.
