evening to grill.The children are taking the ponies to exercise now that it iswarmer. Lovina and Kevin liketo drive Minnie the miniature pony. They can put her harnesson and hitch her to the ponywagon. It’s nice that they learnwith a smaller pony and getused to it. Daughter Elizabeth went toher friend Timothy’s house for supper last night. His parents,his brother and wife and hissister and family took supper infor Timothy. One of Timothy’shorses kicked back at one of his seven month old foals lastSaturday. It was hit in the headand died almost instantly. Themare that kicked is due to havea foal soon. It happened so fastand she must’ve hit just in thewrong place. It was disappoint-ing to Timothy as at sevenmonth old it was a nice size al-ready.Little Prancer, our miniature pony, turned a year old yester-day, April 9. Daughter Lovinasaid she thinks she should gotell Prancer it’s his birthday.The boys said they should givehim extra feed. It made melaugh. In another year he will be ready to train to drive the pony wagon.Jacob and Emma’s oldestdaughter Elizabeth, 17, willhave surgery done on her ear tomorrow. She had the surgerydone on the other ear with goodIt’s already Thursday, thedeadline for me to get this col-umn out in the mail. This week our five children are home onspring break. The boys have been cleaning out the barn andhauling manure. The girls have been helping with the springcleaning and also cleaning upthe yard. We’ve had a few nicedays this week now. It givesyou the eagerness to want to plant the garden. Our gardenhasn’t dried up enough yet butwith these nice sunny daysmaybe it will soon. I am alsohoping to see the dandeliongreens pop up. I always look forward to those fixed into asalad with diced hard boiledeggs and a homemade sour cream dressing. We like thedandelion greens over steamed potatoes. I haven’t been out tocheck if any rhubarb is peepingthrough yet.A friend of daughter Verenais here today. She came lastnight and stayed the night. Sheused to be in the same schooland grade as Verena but theymoved to another school dis-trict. They still keep in contactand she has come to visit be-fore. They always enjoy eachother’s company.My husband Joe grilledchicken last night for supper and along with that we hadspaghetti, macaroni andcheese, jello cake, and angelfood cake. It was a niceresults. We wish her a completeand speedy recovery.I took daughter Susan, 18, tothe doctor this week. She has been so miserable breaking outall over with an itchy and painful rash. Her hands are all blistered and peeling skin. Itstarted after she started her new job at the RV factory. Shecaulks the outside of the RVsand has to use a strong cleaner to clean off the excess caulk.The doctors said she is allergicto the strong chemicals in thecleaner. We hope they will con-sider moving her to a new po-sition. It’s just not worth themoney to have to be miserablelike this. The doctor gave her antibiotics and cream to try toclear it up.
