Many thanks to neighbor Etta Schroeder for washing the outside windows in her own apartment and then going south and doing my windows and also Lorraine Jones windows! What a beautiful act of kindness! Etta knows just when to come as every day has been too windy!
October 13th was another grand night for football except our Adrian Dragons lost to Dawson-Boyd Blackjacks! The field is always in beautiful shape, the announcing is great and the band was great! The players were great but they lost to a better team that night!

Last Friday night I made a point to watch the Diane Sawyer’s special 20/20 in which she interviewed the Pakistan girl who survived after a terrorist shot her in the head because she wanted to go to school! Diane Sawyer titled her special “Unbreakable.” This young girl is Malala and now she is known all over the world and has done so much to get women and girls the right to attend school. It was a beautiful special! She is being invited to visit the Queen of London!

The Adrian Meal Site in the Slade Hotel basement celebrated their 40th anniversary on Friday, October 11th with a large crowd enjoying a delicious hot roast beef dinner! Special guest was Assistant Director, Rhonda Lorang from Worthington. Also present and spoke a few words, was Adrian Mayor Bob Wiese. Rhonda reported how important the dining center is and also the volunteers who take meals out to deliver to those homebound or on special diets. Mary Lund is head of Adrian Meal Center and does a fantastic job with help from other seniors to serve meals at the center and to pack meals to be sent out. The list of drivers are so welcome but the Center could use a few more. Mary encourages more people to come and eat at the Center at 11:30 every day but Saturday and Sunday. The meals are nutritional, hot and delicious. The Adrian Center is a home away from home for many. Lutheran Social Service (LSS) is the agency who sponsors our food services. Our assistant director Rhonda says “When the weather gets frightful - - come and enjoy a meal that's delightful”! Thanks Rhonda for sharing our 40th anniversary in Adrian and special thanks to Mary Lund and her dedicated helpers! Many prizes were given out for their special 40th anniversary.
Etta Schroeder made a batch of three Zwicback and brought several over to me, still warm from the oven! They are a german pastry and most delicious! They are shaped like a bun with a little extra topping on the top? Get it? You take the top off and fill the bun part with butter and jelly! Use the little top for wiping up the jelly!
This writer had the pleasure of a short visit with Pat Mauch at the Adrian Nursing Home. She stopped in to see long time friend Clair Engan. We covered quite a bit of talking before parting. Pat comes home about every two weeks to see brother Jim and her financee in Luverne. Always good to see old friends.
Bob Kunkel had successful back surgery last week! He is home and taking it slow and easy! We all wish you the very best Bob!
October 13th Sunday morning, I found a thin layer of ice on my bird bath! The birds who came to take a drink were as surprised as I was!
Neighbor Vonnie Berglund has been gone quite a bit this summer. Her first grandchild, Jackson August Barone was born May 12, 2013, in St. Augustine, Florida to Jackie and Peter Barone. Vonnie flew down to Florida for about six weeks to help with their new baby as his Daddy is in the Army. Vonnie came home but left again in September for 20 days. She is so crazy about this beautiful little boy! She loves to take pictures of him and he really is a beautiful child!
