The Mt. Zion area had frost Friday night; didn’t think it amount to much until I got in the car and had to defrost my windshield of a thick layer of ice. Had to move the plants inside. Farmers are busy harvesting soybeans. Lots of fall calves being born.

Wanda Rector is still home just taking in the local actives and planning her next trip now that cooler weather is here.

Terry and Judy Piepmeier are doing fine; but would like prayers for their daughter.

Julia Snethen, Chryshella and Theo Vandivier visited in the Griffith-Zink home recently. Julia and Theo went with Mike to check the cows which Theo enjoyed greatly, he also petted the horse.

People are so creative with their Halloween and fall decorations; worth the drive seeing them.

Happy birthday to Bonnie Heiserman who will celebrate her birthday this week.

Over at the Robin Siegismund Farm, Belle is enjoying the cooler weather. She made a frost angel that didn’t last long but sure felt good making it. Robin is making some pretty kid’s caps. Mabel is enjoying the little people, not many pecans for her to pick up.

John and Julia Snethen have had a busy week with Julia having outpatient surgery on her right upper arm  on Monday, then running errands in Clinton on Tuesday and keeping appointments the rest of the week. John ran his bus route and staying busy at home.
