ELMER IS FORGETFUL
So seeing I can't remember what I was going to do the post on, I have to come up with something. Palmyra had Canal Town Weekend. There were a lot of things going on. They were having two parades, antique cars, people selling crafts and food - and more. None of that really interested me until someone said that in the fair grounds was a train exhibition. Bishop Eli and I decided we wanted to see that.
So we got John to drive us to the Palmyra Fair Grounds where we went to see all the trains. Both our wives told us not to buy anything, we had enough. But as we left, I heard Emma say that went in one ear and out the other.
We walked through and saw all the trains. If you are not a train person, you would not appreciate it. But, if you are like us, we had to see every train, talk with every owner, and tell them about ours. We spent most of the afternoon in there looking around. It surprised both of us that we didn't buy anything.
Our only regret is that we wish Porter had been there. He would have really enjoyed it like we did. After we got done, we came back home. The ladies were looking for the bags or boxes, but there weren't any this time. We shocked them both.
Also, this last weekend, we had rain. It is a gift from God. The grass is turning green. I don't know if it will help what crops are left. Still we appreciate all that God sends to us.
My mind is giving. There is something else I wanted to add here, and I can't remember what it is. It was just on my mind and off it went. Anna says it is old age.
It hardly seems that summer is coming to an end and fall will be here this week. Summer went by so fast this year. Hope all the beautiful leaves turn color this year. Last year they didn't do too well in our area.
Well, I still can't remember what I was going to say, so I end the post now. If I think of it, Marilyn says to call and she will put it on.
Trust God's Wisdom,
WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE NEW - NEW YORK STATE OF MIND LOOK? I MADE IT BY MISTAKE, BUT IT KIND OF GREW ON ME/
