Talking it over: Enjoying a surprise
A little over a week ago, our children surprised my husband and me with a 40th wedding anniversary celebration. It came as a surprise because our anniversary isn't until September so we didn't expect anything this soon. We had a great time with family and close friends and especially...

Talking it over : Welcome
When you host a party, you really hope people will attend. Hancock hosted a huge party earlier this month, and it was with joy that the community welcomed several hundred guests. This is the type of welcome people love to get from their home town. Warm hugs, good wishes, listening...

Talking it over: Welcome alumni
I am so excited for this weekend. The All-School Reunion is always so much fun, exhausting, but worth every minute spent preparing. I have tried to keep a somewhat low profile when it came to getting involved with this reunion. Tried is the key word because when you work for the...

Talking it over: Bringing in the cows
Every June, during dairy month, I am reminded of my youth. Growing up on a dairy farm, the month of June was often special. My dad served on several dairy council boards and promoting the product was a big part of his job. Therefore in June, he had a lot of extra activity with the...

Talking it over: Weeping willows
When I was young, one of my favorite memories is playing under weeping willow trees. My favorite willow tree was one at my aunt and uncle's farm place. It was a huge willow with endless branches reaching to the ground. We not only played under those branches but I also remember a...

I was just trying to come up with something to write for my column this week, when I received an email from my sister Sharon. She described a visit to the cemetery over the weekend and I thought it was something worth sharing. She was accompanied by her son Scott, his wife Amy, and...

Talking it over: Princess dancers
This weekend I attended a dance recital in Morris for what seemed like a hundred young dancers. My granddaughter, Jaedyn, was in her first year of dance and this was her first big recital. It was also the first dance recital I have attended and I was impressed. She was so excited...
