Season Starting??

Well I just heard that Church will be starting next Sunday at Magnolia so the new season must be close at hand...It seems like it has been a long summer in some ways, but then again it did go by very quickly...The heat and the mosquitoes just seemed to make it longer I would say....I hear that Pastor Stacey is very excited to preach the word again in Magnolia Park for the people...I will be glad to hear him again....I can't tell you much more until I learn more , but if you want to attend you better start south for you NORTHERN folk right away...See you when you get here.....

Story from Bill & Kay

For those of you who know Bill & Kay well this will give you a chuckle and not surprise you. For those of you who don't know them well, I hope you will get a chuckle. Bill & Kay were getting ready to go on a trip so Kay had pared down all the food in the fridge. A day before they were headed off on their trip Bill decided to go to the Farmers Market. Kay told him NOT to buy anything. Firmly she said, "DO NOT buy anything!". Bill has a shopping problem that is famous. He cannot seem to buy just one of anything.
 Kay had a few errands to run before taking off on their trip and she came home to find  8 quarts of strawberries, 24 ears of corn, 4 pints of Blueberries, ( 4) 5 pound bags of sugar, 2 dozen eggs, and 6 tomatoes!

This is what Kay emailed to her friend Julie:

Funeral arrangements are pending for William R. Stilson, age 69 of Curtice, Ohio. He was reportedly found buried under 8 quarts of strawberries, 24 ears of corn, 4 pints of Blueberries, ( 4) 5 pound bags of sugar, 2 dozen eggs, and 6 tomatoes. He is survived by his overworked distraught wife Kay  

Do you know anyone with this same problem? Maybe we need to start a support group?

Stilsons visit Brookers

Stilson's went on a summer trip to Iowa and Minnesota and then returning to Ohio by way of Michigan and stopped to visit with us. We are having a great time with lots of stories and catching up.

We gave them a tour of Thunder Bay Resort and happened to see the Elk. Resort customers pay  to see the Elk and we were in a 'Keep Out' area to see them so do not tell anyone.;-) The big boy in this picture did not take his eyes off of us the entire time we looked at him.

Hinckley MN Reunion Pictures

 I should have done this along time ago but I'm retired and have too much to do. These are pix of of 2010 Magnolia Park reunion in Hinckley, MN which was held during the week of July 12th. There were 30 people from the park. We all enjoyed renewing old conversations. Fun was had by all.      LeRoy Misfeldt

And Barb says: All of these people are well known Magnolia residents and you should know all their names so we are going to make you get out your dusty, trusty Magnolia directory to identify them all. None of them look a day older than they did last winter!
Hint: Not all of them are pictured with their spouse!
