MARILYN HAS SOMETHING TO SAY
As of yet, I haven't got the camera. When I had the money and went to buy it, Walmart didn't have anymore. None of the local stores had it. Now, it's not on the computer, either. So we have to pick something else out. Yes, I will get a warranty on it as Jean ordered.
There are many places that I would like to go where Amish and Old Order Mennonites live, but the cost of gas has kept me from going so far. I now plan on going to some of these places, when I get a camera. Then there will be pictures of different areas.
I will accept donations at anytime. The money is set aside for New York State of Mind and I will use it on the camera or gas. I do not want anyone taking money from their own bills or needs. Your needs come first. But, if someone wants to donate, they are appreciated.
So, again, I thank you so very much. It is so very kind of all of you and is greatly appreciated.
On August 23rd, there is going to be a Block Party craft, quilt and furniture sale by the Amish, and Old Order Mennonites at the Fairgrounds in Amherst, Wisconsin The address is: Portage County Fairgrounds, 4504 Fairgrounds Road, Amherst, Wisconsin. At 8:00 AM there is the craft auction, 9:00 AM the Quilt Auction and 12 noon, the furniture auction.
Is anyone going there? If so, would they mind taking pictures that I could put on New York State of Mind. Also telling us a bit about the auctions would be appreciated.
Last, but not least, I would like to thank everyone that was interested in information about the two Amish girls that were kidnapped. Also, too the police, Amish , Englishers and of course, our neighbors in Canada for all the searching they did for the girls. I am so glad that the girls got home safe and sound. Elmer has a post about this coming up, Monday.
Again, thank you all,
Thank you Doreen for letting me know that the Block Party is in Wisconsin and not New York. I saw Amherst and just figured New York.
