Yep, I am doing it again, I'm thinking; pondering life is one of my pastimes. Today we received a telephone call that my father in law was rushed to the hospital and off my mind goes in 100 directions. The "what if" game that I play as a grown up is closely related to the "what's under my bed" game that most of us played as children. I played the what if game last week with Mr. Wiard; he patiently answered every what if that I came up with; what if our customers want eggs and we don't sell eggs? What if hail hits the apples? What if we have the Mountain View Valley Slides but they wanted a cow train? What if we have a dry summer and the pumpkins don't grow? What if the cider press goes down on the busiest Sunday of the season? What if the picnic clients all want only chicken legs? What if, what if, what if! I will not bore you with every individual answer, I will tell you his theme went something like this: we will stay the course, we will do what we do better than anyone else, we will keep learning, keep listening, we will keep changing to meet the customer needs just as we have for the last 178 years and we will be serving the community that we love for many, many years to come. Okay, with that I could rest. Now, as for my father in law, will you keep him in your prayers please?
