Many thanks to Jody (Grimm) Baum for supplying these pictures of the arrows that wounded my great, great, great grandfather in 1865. They are on display at the Kansas Museum of History in Topeka, KS. A quick call I made to the museum confirmed they are still there. I can't wait to go to Kansas to do some good old fashioned family heritage touring...... :)

A while ago we auctioned off a salmon dinner at a local charity auction with Kurt and Joan Plattner. Last night we hosted the winning bidder, Bob and Ellie Pflederer from Morton, along with their Zimmerman siblings. What a great night with some amazing mentors and Christ filled souls!

While sitting around enjoying the evening tonight, Jayden asked me what kind of iPad I had when I was little.
This led to very interesting thoughts and reflections as I told him that not only did we not have iPads but we also did not have Ipods, laptops, cell phones, or cd's.
He stared at me for what seemed like an eternity. I could tell his "wheels were spinning" up in his head.
Finally, in a completely sincere voice, he asked "what did you do back then?".
This eventually led to an insightful conversation about pay phones, cassette tapes, hardback books, paper magazines, landline phones, green screen computers, and other extinct or almost extinct technologies.
Thankfully, our God and His Word does not change! For that we can be so grateful!
