        I bought my first car with tips I made working as a waitress at the Olpe Chucken house starting at the age of 14,

    Beautiful church, beautiful sky, and so good to see you in this new year! I was especially interested in the Beatitudes. I can’t remember seeing them as part of a display before. The Ten Commandments, of course — but I like including the Beatitudes, too.

    I hope your Christmas was great, and that the new year is a peaceful and prosperous one for you. Our weather’s been ghastly because of almost continual rain and gloom, but today the sun was out, and we have have three days in a row without rain. We’re celebrating!

      The sky was so beautiful the day we were at Olpe. Our winter has been rather mild. It didn’t start that way, as right after Thanksgiving we had a blizzard. No moisture since then.

      What do your have planned for the New Year? Any trips?

      I’ve been having such a time trying to get use to a laptop, and Windows 10. I don’t care for WordPress using Edge. Finally figured out to go back to Safari or Explorer, hopefully that will help. Well see how that works.

    Thank you for sharing your story and your photos Deb. That is the church that I grew up in, was baptized in, married in, and baptized all 4 of my children in. My parents still go to morning mass there every day, as my father also grew up there and sits in their family’s traditional pew with the Markowitz name on the stained glass window. In one of the photos, you captured the Catholic grade school. I walked a couple blocks to and from for six years and was taught by the Catholic nuns there. I can still smell the cinnamon rolls, chili, and applesauce that permeated the building on cold winter days. I have great memories from those two structures. You could not find a more beautiful Christmas Eve mass in all the world!💕

      So thankful you saw this post. We thought of you and yours while we were there. A beautiful part of Kansas to grow up in. A gentler time and it still looks like a thriving and wonderful home town.
