Trip to Town

Today I went to town with the horse and buggy. Thunder, the black horse had a spook and started to take off. Oh my word! I thought for certain we'd have a wheel break. I am thankful to the good Lord that didn't happen. Esther, Lora and Gracie were frightened. I daren't let on that I was a little frightened too. I just grabbed the reigns tighter, said a quick prayer and luckily Thunder calmed down.

Esther's eye glasses were ready, so we picked those up. Also picked up Jacob's new work boots and whilst in the drug store, I found a bottle of lovely smelling lotion. I bought some. I think Jacob won't mind too much as it was only $1.99. It was just a little splurge, and my hands tend to get so dry after washing dishes nearly four or five times per day.

It was a fun trip to town and the little girls enjoyed coming along.

God Bless,

Glad the wheel didn't break. That happened to me once and it wasn't fun. Also, $1.99? was that at Schmucker's? I'll have to go get some.

Gum! Ich kann nicht glaube!! I'm glad to hear you are alright from the spooked horse.

I like to use the Cornhusker's Lotion that you can get at Smucker's.
