A few weeks ago, one of our regular breakfast club members at Bullshippers Café, Courtney Justice, passed away. Courtney was a longtime and well-known attorney in Logansport and Delphi. I did not know him for a long time, but I found him to be very engaging and conversational. He was a great advocate for his alma mater, Wabash College. I was most impressed that he did not let physical impairment keep him from being active and involved. He is and will be missed!
Last winter, we had all kinds of problems with the old, oil furnace. Our now famous furnace man, Burkie, installed a new LP gas unit this summer, and it has worked wonderfully to heat our old farm house. What a relief to not worry about the heat!
No occasional column would be complete without a Buddy report. Buddy, our three-legged golden retriever, is doing just fine. He seems a little slower, but he is approaching 10 years old. We have him sleep in the garage when it is as cold as it has been, but he always wants to be running around outside.
Stay in touch during this short session – it moves fast. It is your government, so stay involved.
