Sweets Column, Winslow, IN 47598 received one postcard this week. Postcard # 671 has four scenes by the ocean. One is green grass, trees along the ocean and a family of deer grazing. The second one is houses with trees along the coast and a valley of purple ground covering with white boulders. The third is white boulders along the coast with dots of pine trees. The fourth is white-cap waves against the big rocks on a hazy day. Written in the middle is "Sev- enteen-mile Drive." Seven- teen-mile Drive on Monterey Peninsula is one of the most scenic and beautiful drives in the world, and winds through Carmel, Pebble Beach, Pacif- ic Grove and Monterey. On the back, it reads, "Greetings from the West Coast. I came to California to visit friends around Salinas and Sacra- mento. I have been here be- fore, but the massive amount of vegetables and crops is in- credible. God blessed the U.S.A. Your friend, Max Car- lisle, Stendal, Ind." We are so happy to receive this 17-Mile Drive postcard and it does look like a great place to do a scenic drive along the West Coast, and it's also great to visit friends. California must have some great soil to grow that much and yes, God has blessed the U.S.A. in many ways. Winslow Patoka River is still low and on Thursday, Ju- ly 30, after midnight, we got heavy rain that lasted most of the morning. Then, the temp was in the 80s, but the humid- ity is still around and will be all week long. I haven't been in Winslow for about a week, but I just got back last Wednesday to enjoy the rain we got on Thursday. I was over in Illinois to visit Mom and help out with the itching that had started. We still believe it's from the mos- quitoes since she had been outside for a long period of time. Got to meet her regu- lar doctor. Mom's ears were cleaned out from the wax buildup and medicine was pre- scribed for her ears and the itching she has on her legs and neck. Otherwise, she is okay as much as she can be at 93 years old. I also met her kidney doctor at her yearly checkup and again, he gave her high praises and she okay for another year. When Norm and I left to go over to Mom's, the afternoon was humid, but the drive was pleasant as we drove in and out of showers on I-64, most of the drive in Illinois. The Wa- bash River is still low because you can still see the sandbar, but the Little Wabash is real- ly high and over its banks. We passed logs of semi-trucks, but only a few cars all along I-64 and I-57. Construction is still happening on I-57, with bridge work, like they are do- ing here on the Indiana state roads. When we got almost to Mom's, we saw a buck, a doe and five wild turkeys all in one field, so Norm blew the horn. They all turned around and just stood there, watching us. They were not scared at all, so he blew the horn again and they just stood there, so we left. We have never seen that in Indiana. Here, they would white tail you and run away. In that area, they know they are safe. Norm had to leave af- ter he dropped me off, so he wasn't too late getting back to Winslow. In a few hours, I got a call that he was home safe and sound. While I was there, Mom and I had a nice visit, and George, Deby, Mom and I went out for an ice cream at a place in Sess- er, where people from far away come back each year to enjoy this sweet treat. It's real tasty. Mom had a hot fudge sundae. George had an almond par- fait. Deby had a vanilla cone. I had a dish of dreamsicle. They also sell sandwiches, and out- side on the corner, where two intersections cross, is a La- dy Liberty holding an ice cream cone. She is painted a light, blue-green color. Then, George drove around in one area of Rend Lake, where the golf course is and some ho- tels, campgrounds, a boat ramp, a swimming area with lots of sand for volleyball and the Rend Lake Dam. There are more areas, but this area has a bike trail that covers this whole area where George, De- by and Jacari rode their bikes. Jacari could run off some of his energy when he was younger. We also saw several mama deer and their babies in the park and in the fields graz- ing. I also saw where Mom and her caretaker sit and eat while watching the boats en- ter the water and see the fam- ilies putting the boats on the trailers. Mom loves to watch how the little kids love to help on the boat and how they love the water. George and Deby had to rescue Kelly from work when her car wouldn't start. George looked at it and got a battery, but that wasn't the problem. It's something else, but she needed a car to get to work and she found one that would be dependable. Since Jacari will learn to drive soon, she is going to fix up the car that died for him, or George and Jacari will fix it. Humidity was high all week and weekend, except for Tues- day, July 28, when we drove to the big town of Marion to find Mom a pair of shoes and san- dals. The regular shoe store only carries men's shoes now, so we stopped at a medi- cal place, where she was cor- rectly measured for the shoes she will try on in a week or so. Since it was too late to go to another store for sandals, that will be another day when a wheelchair is in the van for Mom, so she does not have to walk the whole mall. I al- so saw the Veterans Hospital where George and several vet- erans from around here go. On the ride to Marion, we took the side roads instead of the expressway, and the small towns and countryside was more to look at and enjoy- able to see the different scen- ery along the way. Like Norm and I take a drive one way and make a complete circle, we did the same thing, where we started down one way and when we left, we came back on another road. They have several animals, a dog named Sugar, two house cats, and several outside cats and kittens. The house cats are Swirl and Midnight. Mid- night loves to wake people up in the morning when George and Deby get up. If you don't wake up right away, he will lie REAL ESTATE TRANSFERS Bad, LLC conveys to Matthew McLaughlin and Tracie A.
