Hello from the Plain Community
By Donnie Miller
Wednesday, Dec. 4, 2019: Time for another Plain Country letter for the Middlefield Post. It is another dreary morning in November. What else do we expect in Northeast Ohio? We cannot complain about our weather as yet. We had two snows so far, but all in all our fall has been nice. Thanksgiving is coming up. We are looking forward to having our son Dannie and family here for the day. It has been awhile and they are planning to bring the whole family. The other children are welcome for the afternoon.
Christmas for our family is planned to be at Tim and Emma on Saturday, Dec. 14th. We look forward to that day.
Daughter Suzy spent 10 days in Florida along with two of her friends, traveling on Pioneer Trails bus line. hey reported warm weather except the last two days were cool.
Nancy and I spent the day, yesterday the 19th, at the Clinic. Seen my kidney doctor and all is still holding steady, and also received my anemic shot and then had my wound checked from when I had some skin cancer removed. Have another appointment to take off more cancer on Dec. 4, plus my annual heart checkup is scheduled for Dec. 20. Dec. 31it will be 20 years since my heart transplant.
Wishing everyone Happy Holidays!

Wednesday, Oct. 23, 2019: All of the sudden I realized that a letter is due for the paper. Hope everyone is enjoying our good fall weather. The leaves are at their prettiest and are really hanging on this year. Remember when we almost could not wait for the winter and that first snow? We rode our sleds on the road at night and had all kinds of fun. No more … you would get run over in a hurry. Ah, the good old days.
Had another 4-day hospital stay with blocked bowels, and am having a hard time recovering. Lost my appetite and most of my energy. A week after my hospital stay, I asked for a flu shot and received one and it reacted on me. The first time after 40 plus shots over the years. So am finally getting my appetite back and feeling a bit stronger. We have a chance to go along to Indiana for a day to visit our son and family but had to say no as my strength is not good enough.
Visitors were Brother Dan and Katie on Sunday evening the 13th. On the 19th our three nephews stopped in. They are sons of sister Sally and Monroe Detweiler, David of Clymer, N.Y., Wayne and Chester. A short but nice visit. While they were here daughter-in-Law Liz, and girls Donna, Miriam and son Caleb made a short call. On Monday evening Enos and Esther Hostetler, Ervin and Marianne Miller and Paul J Byler were here for a nice visit.
Our community mourns with David and Alma Byler when their son was killed in an ATV accident on Sunday evening the 13th.
