Patriot and Posey Township 8-16-18

Personally, I would take this weather all year round if we could get it! I’ve been getting lots of things done (knock on wood!) and have even more projects planned.

Give yourself a little extra time if you coming into Patriot from Florence or Rising Sun as there is highway construction going on in both directions on Highway 156 that can cause delays: there is major bridge renovation at 156 and Wade Run with a stop light in place and on 156 just down river from 56.

Happy Birthday to my favorite four-legged buddy in the world — Mr. Hershey who turned 16 years old on Monday. He has some medical issues, but his cantankerous attitude and the good veterinarian care of Dr. Rachael Low are keeping him going. He’s my ‘chocolate’ Japanese Chin that was rescued eight years ago from a puppy mill. And then on August 16th, one of my favorite two-legged buddies, Anthony Christiani will be celebrating another birthday.
Did ya ever? I did. Again! Last week I mentioned confusing the phone with the remote control for the television. Well, this week, I did it Again! My friend Judy was calling me from Indianapolis and by the time I figured out that there was no button on the remote to pick up her call — I missed it! She got a kick out of it. Now if someone would just invent a remote that can answer the phone, maybe I would buy it!
On November 3rd, the Red Hot Hatters will co-sponsor a concert at Vevay’s Historic Theater starring Hoosier writer and performer Tom Roznowski. Roznowski’s work in music and media reflects his fascination with the art of everyday life. Tom’s original songs have been praised in the U.S. and Europe and played on radio stations from St. Louis to Siberia. Billboard Magazine referred to Tom as “part zoot suit, part Mark Twain with a grasp of Americana both wry and sensitive.” For this performance, Tom will be joined by Mike Lucas (piano) and Carolyn Dutton (violin). Tickets will be on sale the first of October. Proceeds will be donated to the Antoinette “Toni” Kniola Memorial Fund at the Community Foundation of Switzerland County. Further details are forthcoming.
Instead of a recipe for edible food this week, I am going to share with you a piece I read from Spirit Food For Thought that has truly given me strength and determination:
“You need to understand that the enemy is not really after your dreams, your health, or your finances. He’s not primarily after your family. He’s after your joy. The Bible says that ‘the joy of the Lord is your strength’ (Nehemiah 8:10 NKJV), and your enemy knows if he can deceive you into living down in the dumps and depressed, you are not going to have the necessary strength — physically, emotionally, or spiritually — to withstand his attacks. “
Well, I’m all for enjoying the Joy of my Lord and my enemies can just sit back and watch me smiling ear-to-ear!
