Hi Ladies!

Is it possible that this could be the middle of July? But oh! we've had a pleasant Summer so far.

Our attendance at the Montpelier, Ohio Reunion as usual proved very delightful. The heat wave that accompanied us there certainly did not cool the enthusiasm of the Reunioners any.

We had the privilege of visiting with the Wiedmore's and Enders while staying with our daughter and family at Seville, Ohio a few days before the Reunion started.

The Enders is an annual affair for us. They know to look for us a day or two prior to the Reunion. 'Gib' had his 9HP Case steamed up for us. Mr. Orman Kiser came the same day which is an annual occurence. Elmer had the privilege of taking his youngest Grandson, Ronald Gilson, a ride on the engine, he is just 19 months old. Gib gave him his first ride last year and a good ride this year. Mrs. Catherine Enders is certainly a fine person to know too. Her hospitality cannot be excelled. She is always the same pleasant individual who never seems to be able to do enough to make our visit enjoyable.

Another eve our auto jaunt took us to the Wiedmore's. These folks proved to be just as hospitable. The men enjoyed visiting and examining the Russell standing at the back fence while we women folks enjoyed moments of exchanging facts about our families fond of flowers. Her gracious generosity enabled us to bring home an unusual flower to try and raise in our own back yard a cactus that stays out doors and blooms in the Summer. It was lovely and I truly hope it grows for us too.
