We went to get our yearly supply of peaches again. We only got about 750 pounds this time. Pictured is just 1 row of boxes, more rows in dining room and kitchen. Most of these are sold, I keep about 200 pounds for us. So in case you were wondering what I am doing.....canning peaches and answering the door for peach pick-up! You should smell this place!!!!

Weekend videos

Boone Trip:

This third video is a wonder. This tiny little baby girl is a major eater. I cannot believe the amounts of food she eats. Her parents order her a meal to herself when they eat out and she is 14 months old! Another phenomenon in my book is that she loves meat and eats a ton of it. This third video would make a great commercial for the Iowa Beef Producers. She snitched the steak from her mothers plate.

Dear Magnolia Park Family

  Dear Magnolia Park parents, Dorothy and Dick Hannewald will be celebrating their 85th ( Mom ) and 90th ( Dad ) birthdays on August 6th ( same day, different years Mom reminds us ! ). Since most of their dear friends are scattered all over the country , it would be hard to have a birthday I thought I would have a " birthday card" if you would like to send them a card on this special day...I know they would love it....I'm keeping this a surprise....they love to get mail....their address is P.O. Box 6...Thompsonville, MI 49683.....Thanks so much in advance....P.S. They became great-great grandparents this week....Ada Marie...6 lbs 10 oz....19 1/2".....short, like the rest of us !!!  Hope you are all having a great summer.....! Judie Mathews...( their daughter )

From a park resident- Guess who??

 I have found a great recipe for dishwasher soap!  I love it, our water is so hard here, even with a softener.   It works great, no film on glasses.....

2 cups of Washing Soda
2 cups of Borax
1 cup of salt
4 packs of unsweetened lemonade Koolaide

I'm guessing the Koolaide provides the citric acid needed to keep the film off the glassware.  Salt softens or scrubs the dishes?  Anyway I am very happy with this, beats Cascade hands down.   I used to just use the soda and borax,  but it left a film on things. Smileycons!

From Sharon Hvam

I was finishing up reading the Sunday Star Tribune today when I noticed Dale's obituary in the paper. He and Hazel lived where Larry Ergen now lives in Magnolia Park before they moved to San Juan Gardens(i believe) and I thought many of the long time residents of Magnolia might like to know about this, so wondered if you could post it.
Dale Mohn 83, died Friday, June 24,2011 at Rio Grande Regional Hospital in McAllen,Texas. Inurnment will take place at 1pm Thursday July 14,2011, at Fort Snelling National Cemetary in Minneapolis,Minnesota. A reception honoring the life of Dale will follow the inurnmentat the American Legion in Richfield Mn. It did not give an address for her.
