Plymouth Area News for the week of July 18th, 2016 by Joyce Steiner

Just got home and received the news that Curtis Steiner’s, my nephew, wife’s mother passed away tonight.  So very sorry to hear the sad news.  Our prayers go out to the family.
Took my VW to Macomb as the passenger side window disappeared into the door.  Got it back a day later so was grateful for the quick service. 
More storms on Tuesday afternoon.  The weather radio went off repeatedly while I was at the store.  Just got one really large limb cleared from the front side walk and had a lot of smaller branches to clean up.  Thanks to all who helped clear the side walk.  It was a huge limb that bowed out where it was fastened to the tree and it just finally gave way.  The day before there had been a guest’s car parked out front.  So glad it did not happen then!
Since I have been having Brick Wall pizza every weekend and since I can never eat a whole pizza, have tried various ways to eat left over pizza.  Actually cold pizza is pretty good for breakfast.  Then there is micro waved pizza-soggy.  Finally I tried just heating it in a skillet.  No spray, nothing, just heat the skillet and add the pizza- not bad.
Visited with Mimi Lawton on Thursday evening as I needed to return a couple of her dishes.  Just nice to actually sit down and visit for a while.
Stray kitties stop by my house and store for food.  There is one older red kitty who stops by about once a year when he needs medical attention.  Think he knew he was getting ear mites so he stayed on the porch until I saw him.  Even though he is not tame, he patiently allowed me to put Advantage on his neck.  It is good for all kinds of fleas, ticks and ear mites.  Have not seen him since, he just came when he needed to.
Jack Weaver’s house will be auctioned on Thursday, July 28th at 4 pm.  It would certainly be nice to have nice friendly neighbors buy the house.
Spent the week packing for 3rd Sunday Market.  As I had no guests on Friday night, was able to leave on time on Saturday morning.  Got set up in good time and did a bit of shopping.  Got one firkin which came home with me for the store.  Sunday morning the weather was good when the show opened then someone suggested I look outside.  There was a fierce looking wall cloud coming over the fair grounds from the north.  Of course I expected the worse.  It sent every one scurrying into the buildings for cover.  That turned out to be good for us as we had very brisk sales for about an hour and a half.  It rained hard for a while but there was not a lot of wind with the rain and I don’t think many people lost their tents and the dealers seemed to stay and continue to sell after the rain quit.  Our sales were very slow after noon but we did OK due to the good sales during the storm.  Economic report-still no checks or credit cards so people are just using cash which is not a good sign for the economy.
So much hatred right now.  I suggested last week that we can begin scattering kindness one person at a time.  “Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me.”
