The Viet Nam war was the war of my childhood.  It was a highly unpopular war and the servicemen who survived it arrived home to find more battles to fight.  It was a sad, sad time in American history no matter what side of the aisle you happened to be on.  Harold's brother, Lenard Moeggenborg was one who did not make it back. Today is the anniversary of his journey back to God.

It is also the anniversary of the death of another brother-in-law, Richard Packer, and of our last baby - Joseph Lewis.

Today I packed up a rather large order which included two of our small pip grubbies.  I love to make these!

These were scented with Peppermint and they smell wonderful!!  I delivered the order to the school and ran into several former co-workers.  I love Shepherd.  It is a beautiful little town.  As someone who comes from the big city, I find it wonderful to have such a beautiful place in my life.  After dropping Carol's order off at the school, I stopped that the bank and the post office.  It is rare that I go to Shepherd and don't run into at least 2 or 3 relatives. 

We received another stocking order off of Etsy today.  That makes 4 this week.  I can only wonder what September, October, and November will bring.

We are considering doing another show in October next year.  This is one we've done before, but we have learned a lot about craft shows and feel that we could really do well if we were to go there again.

Word of the day:
Saint Bartholomew, apostle - Feast
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint John 1:45-51.

Philip found Nathanael and told him, "We have found the one about whom Moses wrote in the law, and also the prophets, Jesus, son of Joseph, from Nazareth."
But Nathanael said to him, "Can anything good come from Nazareth?" Philip said to him, "Come and see."
Jesus saw Nathanael coming toward him and said of him, "Here is a true Israelite. There is no duplicity in him."
Nathanael said to him, "How do you know me?" Jesus answered and said to him, "Before Philip called you, I saw you under the fig tree."
Nathanael answered him, "Rabbi, you are the Son of God; you are the King of Israel."
Jesus answered and said to him, "Do you believe because I told you that I saw you under the fig tree? You will see greater things than this."
And he said to him, "Amen, amen, I say to you, you will see the sky opened and the angels of God ascending and descending on the Son of Man."
