Ben Lapp

Ben takes his obligations seriously. Lapp's Bike Shop is closed until Labor Day. But Ben is on call whenever someone needs anything in the Bike Shop. Rachel Esh needed a bike and so Ben opened the shop and served her.   

In the meantime I needed a new inner tube, so I dropped in. 

My tire had a pin hole leak. Every few days it was low in air.

He also greased the bike.

And checked all the tires for air pressure. 
After making a few more adjustments my bike runs good as new. 
Thanks to Ben Lapp. 

Pioneer Trails and Crossroad Buses Arrive

Today two buses came in. The Pioneer Trails came because it was a regular Summer run. 

Getting their contact number and making a call to be picked up.

A Crossroad bus came in from Indiana, with family, relatives and neighbors of Gladys Miller. Tomorrow is her funeral at the Tourist Mennonite Church.



Sold! The Post Office


The former post office is sold. 
Ann Michelle is the new owner.
Her plans are to turn this into a Coffee/Sandwich Shop.  

Phyllis Hornback Myers

Phyllis and I had been Facebook friends for a few years. We know some of the same people and both lived the Plain Life. Phyllis as a conservative German Baptist and I was born Amish. We had an interesting visit this afternoon. 

The Evening Clouds


The evening clouds from Good Avenue.

The sunset from the Pinecraft Park. 
This photo was taken about 45 minutes later.


Family

Out for the evening.

Every now and then I meet up with this father/daughter bike riding. 


A Day's Work

Pinecraft was a busy place. This tree on Yoder Avenue behind Eli Smucker's house came down bit by bit, one branch at a time until nothing was left.

Pushing dirt at Mervin Weaver's.

Making a patio at Linda Herschberger's apartment on the corner of Miller and Fry.

And the day ended with the soft evening clouds. We had lots of dark stormy looking clouds this afternoon but no rain.

The Beauty of Summer

This morning the Pinecraft Park had a beautiful carpet of tiny flowers.

A Palm Tree at the north end of the Pinecraft Park. Here I watched a young Blue Jay get flying lessons from an adult. I love the quietness of the park this time of the year.

These are in full bloom.

The sunset tonight.
