Last night I was invited to join a senior group for a picnic at the park. (Click to enlarge photos.)
Lester & Sara Hostetler
Elmer Beachy and his wife
Boys will always be boys. It doesn't matter how old they are.
Time for a hand shake with the ladies. Well, most people shake hands with each other and I keep forgetting it. I never was a hand shaker.
Rising to pray the blessing before eating the meal.
Listening carefully to Lester tell some sort of story.
And the group picture
Seated are Anna & Laura Yoder. I think they are sisters and had both married Yoders and are both widow ladies. On the far left is Erma LaRaviere, Lester & Sara Hostetler, Wilmer Miller & wife, Samuel Bender & wife, Sam & Martha Hostetler & Elmer Beachy & wife. (If I don't know the wife's name then I just wrote "wife". Sometimes I remember their names and other times I don't.
If I can't remember names it is not due to old age. If you live in Pinecraft for more than two years, you forget names, but remember faces. It blows a person's mind to remember 1000 names a day during the winter months.
