10/13, Bill Freeman stopped in for an early morning visit and a cup of coffee with his dad, Merrell Freeman. Merrell seems to be pretty much settled and daughter and son-in-law, Linda and Donnie Snyder, and family visit often.
10/14, was Pump n' Pantry pizza for lunch with fresh tossed salad and homemade apple cobbler. Once a month we have pizza which makes a great lunch or supper and there's always seconds to pass around.
Tuesday was also “take your kitty home day”. Staff members Maria Gross, Treasha Watkins and Sheryl Hubinsky became proud moms of calico kittens from the farm of Mike's parents, Don and Rose Shadduck. Don had said this particular litter was made up of exceptional calico kittens with beautiful markings and he was hoping to find homes for them. Michael and Jen took pictures to bring into work and the rest is history. Our staff spent the next couple of weeks choosing names and preparing for their new arrivals. Maria adopted “Rose Marie” (we later discovered that Mike's mom is “Rose Marie” - this was absolutely a coincidence!), Treasha adopted “Tori” and “Leo” and Sheryl adopted “Callie”. Mike's brother and family, Tim, Jessica and Emma adopted the two remaining kittens. We are very happy to report that all are doing well and as all proud moms do, they exchange pictures, videos and update daily.
