|John Steinbecks' movie on the Great Depression|
|Displaced people in the Great Depression|
I have been planting a garden at our lakeside retreat for about ten years now. Normally I plant a lot of pole beans. I didn't live at the lake then, just went down for weekends. Once when I went down prepared to can the beans, when I got there every bean had been picked. Eventually we got one mess out of an entire planting. I think that thief moved away.
|Tim and Jillian announce their engagement!|
She and her husband, Tim, are both going to college for their Master's Degrees. They bought their home before they were married a year or so ago. They have worked so hard and make do with less than what they have been used to doing. My admiration for both of them abounds. They planted a large garden in a community plot and a small garden at home. She was so proud when she told me she has been eating fresh tomatoes from her garden at home. Sadly, she said, someone had stole all the big, red tomatoes in her commuity garden. In a Christian spirit, she hoped they needed the tomatoes more than she did! I know they were lazy, good-for-nothings and I hoped they got a bad case of indigestion!

I am thankful for my grandchildren! I am thankful for Jilly-poo. She is a winner!
