Try this breakfast favorite by the Amish Cook

By Lovina Eicher

The sun is shining this afternoon. We had a thunderstorm early this morning. The rain kept us out of the garden today. Last night Joe and the children helped get more garden planted. We didn’t get finished yet so hopefully it’ll dry up soon. Our soil is very sandy and dries fast so that helps. We now have planted onions, radishes, lettuce, peas, potatoes, red beets, green beans, cucumbers, corn, sweet peppers, tomatoes, cabbage, banana and hot peppers. Need to plant more corn, watermelon, zucchini and more potatoes yet. So far we have potatoes, peas, radishes, onions, lettuce and corn coming up. Everything is late this year.

The Kentucky Purple Heart Trail doesn’t run through Grant County, but Kentucky State Police Post 6 in Dry Ridge has a special connection to it. On May 27, the day after Memorial Day, the post hosted a special ceremony to return a Purple Heart medal to the family of a World War II soldier.

“First Kiss”

This topic is a little old fashioned or one that took place back in an earlier generation when most country guys and maybe gals some way or other remember that “first kiss.” In most cases, it was a simple little ‘peck,’ very mysterious, impressive and quite memorable.

Most of these ole’ country boys my age were naive, insecure and very much uninformed on techniques of romance. As a lad of fourteen, I became interested in the opposite sex, but was a little confused on how to proceed. I knew the initial step began with a kiss, but had concerns about when and with whom this first step would be taken.

The passing of Floyd Wills, how I knew him

My first recollection of Floyd was at the cook-out which the Pendleton County Board of Education sponsored to get acquainted with me as its newly appointed superintendent. It was held at the Clubhouse at the Pendleton Country Club and Floyd Wills was the “engineer,” who oversaw the roasting of a hog near where the scoreboard sits today. I shook lots of hands that day, but I particularly remember shaking Floyd’s for he was missing some fingers on his right hand. So was I, and we immediately bonded as we discussed how we had lost our digits.
