This has been quite a stressful year for us. Bill and I decided to take a few days and rest in the Amish Country of Lancaster PA. The weather was great. We shopped at the Amish stores, Kitchen Kettle Village and rode the train in Strausburg. We really enjoyed the peaceful quiet town of Lititz. I discovered the best chocolate in the world called Wilbur Buds made right in Lititz. Bill and I really needed some rest time and Lancaster County filled the bill.

Pop's has long wanted to return to his hometown of Metuchen, NJ. An old classmate was located and offered to show us around town. Pop's graduated High School from Metuchen and immediately went into service during World War II. His brother Richard also went into service and was killed in Germany. Pop's was able to see for the first time, Richard's memorial marker that honors his brother. Metuchen is a beautiful town. Very peaceful and friendly. Pop's friend, Don Wernick was a former mayor of this town. It was a great trip.
