We Are Community for the week of November 8th, 2021, by Joyce Steiner


Don’t forget the fish fry that the Plymouth Old Settlers Committee is sponsoring  on Saturday at the Legion Building starting at 4:30 pm.

Have mentioned how nice it is to have friends.  This week a couple from Iowa brought me chocolate and kitty food.  Now that is someone who knows me well!

“On the roof again”.  On the weekend we rented a lift to try once again to find the roof leak.  On Saturday afternoon while the lift was in use, two people stopped by to see if they could help.  A big thank you to Paul Trimmer who used to have Logsdon Roofing for taking time to drive to Plymouth to help.  It was appreciated.

The Bed and Breakfast is really active because it is hunting season.  On Thursday everyone staying in my home got a deer.  Another friend also got one the next day.  He said that the deer was very chubby which indicated that we would have a bad winter.  This makes sense to me.  There was a wooly worm on my front walk.  It was black on both ends and rust colored in the middle.  Another friend said this meant that the fall and spring would be fairly mild but we would have a heavy winter.  In my opinion wildlife Is as good a weather forecaster as the weather man.  Always interesting to observe nature.

Went to Quincy on Monday to finally stock my antique mall booth.  While at Sam’s Club, I wanted a frozen yogurt.  The snack bars was closed.  Asked an employee why and she said that the employees had just not showed up for the last couple of days.  As an older person who has always worked, guess I just don’t understand that mentality.  Hope things improve in the work place.

The Plymouth Village Board met on Wednesday evening.  There was a lot of discussion about the cost over run on the clean up of the east side of the Square.  Hope that problem can be resolved.  There is so much more we need to clean up.

Pastor Sheri went all out again this Sunday.  We had both communion and a remembrance for those who have passed on.  Each person was able to light one or more candles in remembrance of their loved ones.  It was a very moving service and all the work that went into it was appreciated.  Hopefully the service was recorded and you can catch it on the internet.

The sunsets have been lovely.  There was a new moon over the weekend and it too has been beautiful.  Hope you have had a chance to sky watch.

Once again I have no access to my email address book so this column can only be found in the newspaper or on my website.  Hopefully we can get the problem resolved soon.  Adams certainly has tried.

Have a good week.  Be a friend to as many people as you can.  Pray for those who are ill and those who are grieving. Sharing burdens lightens them for each person.  Scatter kindness and friendship.
