     In my Evergreen Outreach article last month, I believe I was complaining about all of the rain we were having. Don’t you wish we could have a little of that rain now? Every time I am out in the heat, I thank God that I can go home to a cool house.

    One of the things that my wife and I enjoy doing is going to antique stores and looking for antiques.
    There is something that is very intriguing to me about sitting in a 110-year-old chair and thinking about the people, the conversations, the laughter and the tears that may have happened while sitting in this chair.

    We were back at Vandalia Long Term Care for Evergreen Outreach this week. It was a very hot day, with temperatures soaring near 100 degrees.
    However, the heat did not keep a group from FAYCO or those in attendance from the Long Term Care facility from coming and having fun.
    Phyllis Thoman’s music was being enjoyed as the room began to fill with the many guests. She played lovely songs, such as, “It Is No Secret.”
