There are only a few items to share with you this week, as it seems most of the neighbors have been keeping a low profile and have been out and about only doing odd jobs and mundane chores. However, read on for what we have to share.

For the latest in the lives and times of Sally Dana and Lynette Vlasak, they have been in Madison this past week, as Sally has some appointments at UW Hospital. This weekend there is a benefit concert and silent auction for Sally scheduled on Saturday, Feb. 24, beginning at 1 p.m. at the Kendall Community Hall. There will be a silent auction from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m., with music by Leroy Peterson and refreshments for sale.  

Next door at the Steve Schumann household, Deb Wood and daughter Bryana went to Charleston, S.C., to see her sister Shania Stover and Deb’s new granddaughter Zariya. 

Here at Fauska’s Funny Farm, Christopher Young and I lunched at Wildcat Bar & Grill on Friday and happened to be there at the same time as Mark and Gail Baltz of Sparta. Mark’s parents were former members of Kendall Farmers Union, as were my husband Dave and me. On Friday evening, after supper at Elroy Eatery, Christopher and I joined the Kendall Public Library’s Movie Night at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Kendall and saw “Last Train from Gun Hill,” a good old-fashioned western.

The Thursday morning, Bible Study at Evangelical Free Church in Kendall is studying the Book of John in the New Testament, reminding us of Jesus’ last days here on earth before His cruel crucifixion and Triumphal Entry into Heaven on the third day. What a blessing for us to have this account of Jesus’ life and be able to accept Him as our Savior, looking forward to spending eternity with Him and our believing loved ones when this life is over. Hallelujah, what a Savior!
