Jan. 20, 2020: February is a short month according to the calendar, but this year is “Leap Year” and has 29 days. Our grandson, Nathan Mullet in Kentucky has a birthday on Feb. 29th, but we celebrate on the 28th.

There is more snow and wind to come, but then there comes a February thaw and nature will follow her cycle towards spring! (Wonder how many have sent their seed orders in!)

Some schools have been closed for several days because of this flu bug going around. With so many people together in a room or so, you can’t seem to escape that flu bug. (One way to prevent it is to wet your finger and use it to put cream of tartar on your tongue. Works for many but maybe not everybody.)

Trumbull Hardwoods on Bundysburg Road had a late Christmas Friday night, serving pizza and wings to workers and families. Then, later, came two Ventrilo guys from Holmes County, which everyone enjoyed.

Load of us made a flying trip to Horse Cave, Kentucky to surprise Nelson and Susan Byler for church over the weekend. David (Feffy) and Amanda Miller on Pioneer Road got the load together. Going was Robert and Barbara Yoder who used to live in Kentucky, Crawford Urie, Junny and Susan Byler, Rudy and me, Sarah (Bill) Miller and Mary (Sam) Miller. Four years ago, we all traveled to the Redwoods in California with Bill Stutzman tours. And, no doubt he would have gone with us this time if he was still living. This group was in Dan U. Miller district. He was also on the trip. It was veryenjoyable and, yes, we surprised them.

Nov. 18, 2019: Welcome Christmas once again! The days are brief, the nights are long. The skies are bleak and dreary, but a glory shines about the ending of the year. The only hope that’s left to man upon this troubled earth – the hope God gave at Bethlehem at the Messiah’s birth. Welcome! Christ the King!

Let’s remember the family of Bill A. Byler, 17701 Nauvoo Rd. Middlefield, OH. 44062. He passed away last week from a battle with cancer, leaving his lovely wife Etta (Weaver) Byler and five sons, four daughters.

Also, the family of Daniel E Byler age 48, who died suddenly 11:30 at night from a massive heart attack, he went to bed healthy. A shock to his loving wife Barbara (Hochstetler) Byler and seven children. Oldest is 17 years old, youngest is 5 years old. 17916 Madison Rd., Middlefield, OH 44062.

Also, mail and visits to the family, David and Alma Byler, 7988 Bundysburg Rd.  Middlefield, OH 44062. Their son, 17 year old Willy was instantly killed in a 4-wheeler accident several weeks ago. The holidays will be sad with their loved ones missing.

Emanuel and Maryann Stoltzfus, Yogi and Mary Ann Miller, Ray and Sue Burkholder, Rudy and I attended the wedding at Lancaster, Pa. for Rachel and Sam Esch last week at the bride’s parent’s place. Very Enjoyable!

Y’all stay warm and healthy, enjoy the holidays. Appreciate the freedom of our country and pray for each other as we are close to an unknown future of a New Year.

Oct. 21, 2019: Smoke is coming out of chimneys: extra blankets feel good on the bed. The last roses of summer are still blooming. I hope everyone is staying warm and cozy as the air grows colder day by day. Menfolk are enjoying the hunting season. Grandson Marty Jr Detweiler got a 9 -point buck out back in their own woods; his dad got two does.

The community was saddened to hear of the sudden death of 17-year-old Willy, son of David and Alma Byler, 7988 Bundysburg Road, Middlefield, Ohio. 44062, who was killed in a four-wheeler accident on Wilcox Road on Oct. 13.  He was taken to Cleveland University Hospital where he was put on a breathing machine until early morning hours.  His cousin, 22-year-old Cindy Hershberger was also taken to Geauga Hospital with some injuries but nothing serious.  Farmington, Mespo, Windsor, and Middlefield Fire Department came to the scene. Let’s remember the grieving family with prayers, mail, visits.

On Monday morning Sam and Maryann Detweiler (Rudy’s brother), Joe J.S. and Lillie Miller, Rudy and me and daughters Miriam and Kathy left for New York to visit granddaughter, Daniel and Susan Millers at Holland Patent, N.Y.  They live close to the Adirondack Mountains, we spent time there until Saturday. We stopped in Richfield Springs, N.Y. at Michael and Betty Bylers. They have a nice view of the Adirondacks. The fall scenery was beyond words, beauty of all colors before us, above us, behind us, everywhere. Especially in the hills and mountains.

Exciting news in the neighborhood across the street is the birth of twin girls to Ray and Anna Mary Kemph.  Weighing over 5 lbs., they are named Ruth Ann and Rosa Lynn. They are welcomed by one brother and grandparents Allen and Martha Kemph and Marty and Barbara Miller. Greats are Sam Kempfs, Christ H Fishers, widow Andy K. Esther.
