I HAVE STARTED A FACEBOOK PAGE TO KEEP ALL OF THE PICTURES I HAVE OF MY OLD HOMETOWN. I ENCOUNTERED A PROBLEM LINKING MY PHOTO ALBUM WITH THE BLOG AND DECIDED THIS WILL BE THE BEST AVENUE TO GO. SO IF YOU GO TO FACEBOOK AND TYPE IN......IMAGES OF MAZEPPA PA YOU WILL NOW FIND ALL OF THE PICTURES I ONCE HAD ON THIS BLOG. ALSO IF YOU HAVE PICTURES FROM THE MAZEPPA AREA THAT YOU CAN EMAIL TO ME I WOULD BE GLAD TO ADD THEM TO THE PHOTO ALBUM

TANGLE AND I WAS WONDERING IF THIS WAS AN OMEN.  BUT IT GOT BETTER AS I SAW AN EAGLE...A BALTIMORE ORIOLE...LOTS OF OTHER BIRDS AND CAUGHT 18.  A GREAT VARIETY TOO WITH FALL FISH...SMALLYS...A BLUE GILL....A PICKERAL AND THESE 2 DANDY RAINBOWS.

MEMORIAL DAY 2018

WELL THE WEATHER COOPERATED AND WE GOT THE PARADE AND CEREMONY IN LAST NIGHT WITHOUT A RAINDROP.  THERE WILL BE MORE PICTURES ON THE FACEBOOK PAGE BUT JUST PUTTING 2 HERE.  THE ONE IS CLARENCE ROUSH AND OUR SPEAKER BEN LEITZEL.   THE OTHER WAS OUR LITTLE SURPRISE.  A FEW MONTHS AGO CHERRY AND RON WILL TOLD ME THAT THE GRAVE OF CYRUS SHRECK , A MAZEPPA NATIVE , DIDN'T HAVE A MILITARY MARKER. HE PASSED AWAY IN 2014 AND SERVED IN THE KOREAN WAR.  CHERRY AND RON ASKED IF I WOULD ASSIST IN FIXING THE PROBLEM.  TURNED OUT TO BE AN EASY FIX AS THE VA OFFICE HAD ALL OF HIS RECORDS AND I GOT A MARKER RIGHT AWAY.  BUT WE FELT IT WOULD BE PERFECT TO ACTUALLY PLACE THE MARKER AS PART OF THE MEMORIAL DAY SERVICE AND IT ALL TURNED OUT QUITE WELL.  AGAIN THANKS TO CHERRY AND RON FOR NOTICING THAT CYRUS'S GRAVE WAS UNADORNED
