So even in the digital age, it sometimes takes a while to get around to looking at photos you have taken. In going through our camera’s memory card this weekend, I found a great picture of when our family friends (or should
that be family/friends?) Mark, Jeanne & Beth Birky came to visit the cafe. Beth is a teacher in CO Springs, and her folks made the trip out from Hopedale, IL to see her and to visit the cafe. Their son Aaron was a good friend all through elementary & high school — it’s too bad that he, Staci & the kids couldn’t have come out as well. Maybe next time???
It was great to catch up and hear how things were changing back home. Mark & Jeanne have an organic cattle farm where they raise beef to sell at the area farmer’s markets including the one in Downtown Bloomington. Just to show you how things have progressed, I can assure you that neither “organic” nor “farmer’s markets”
were words that many folks in that area had in their vocabularies when we were growing up. My, how things change!!
