As another year begins, I can't help but reflect on the past fortunate and unfortunate things that have happened to us.

Some of the best things I can think of are the times when my husband, Frank, and I attend threshing bees. I know many women will think, 'Is she sane?' Yes, I am and I love meeting new people. I have made many new and lasting friends at the various shows.

Many people go to various threshing shows and some have been first time visitors.

In my opinion, some of the ladies reluctantly go with their husbands, thinking, 'What can be so interesting there?' Some are happy they went along and others aren't sure if they'll ever return. I think it's amazing what you'll find. Most shows have crafts to view and to buy. Some shows have flea markets. Just think of the bargains you can take home! There's music to listen to and various antique displays, from toys to farm machinery and household articles. Pioneer homes and schools and other buildings are on display.

I also enjoy the beauty of the out doors. Where else can you find a mixture of sunshine (a free tan, if you wish), beautiful trees and clouds. The fresh air is so invigorating. If it happens to be a hot day, there's a place to relax in the shade.
