ANNA ANSWERS YOUR QUESTIONS
The first was if my greenhouse could withstand the snow and the long cold winter. Yes, is the answer to that. After I calmed down when I got my greenhouse, Elmer told me how he happened to get the one he did. When he went to buy the greenhouse, he thought all of them were alike. Well he was wrong. There are square ones, round ones, additions to the house and more. He tried to figure who would know about greenhouses. He thought of a couple people that had one greenhouse and then he thought - Jean has three. She should know. So Jean, David and Elmer went to pick it out. They went to the place that David bought Jean's at. David told Elmer they all looked alike to him when he bought Jean's first greenhouse, too. So he finally went home and got her to pick out what she wanted. Elmer said Jean looked at them all. The one she selected for me was the type she selected for herself. Elmer paid the bill and had it delivered to our old farm. How he got that delivered and I didn't know about it is beyond me.

Another question was will I tell you about John's wedding. I will be glad to. It's funny between Elmer and I as it was kind of hard on us when our first child got married and now our last one is getting married. The last will be moving out of our house - again. The great part is they all live close and we get to see them very often.
We are so glad that we have our children and all 49 grandchildren near us. Elmer can't believe that I can remember whose is whose, their name, age and when their birthday is.
Well I hope that I answered some of your questions. Please feel free to ask questions so I know what to give a post about.
