After several years of discussion with my finical advisor, friends, family and others and a lot of thought and prayer I have made the very difficult decision to sell my farm, buy a house in Morris, and move there. Saying goodbye to the community that has been my home for over 56 years is very difficult but sometimes life forces you to do things you do not really want to. I will still be around attending various events in the Donnelly area and writing the Donnelly news. At least I will still have a part of Donnelly in Morris as my next door neighbors are Geo and Joyce Kramer. Please check out the ad in this paper about my moving sale next Sat. (Oct 8th) I should be living in my new house by mid Oct. I will have my new contact info next week however I will continue to keep my old contact info until the New Year. Jim and Lou Eystad and I attended the fall sale and supper at Faith in Morris on Sept 28th.
