Something to do locally when you’re in town …

    Jasper-Pulaski State Fish Wildlife Area.

Stop and watch the thousands of sandhill cranes who call Indiana home during the fall migration season. The location is about 30 minutes from The White House and attracts birders from all around the Midwest. According to local authorities, the best time is mid-October through mid-December, at both sunrise and sunset. Visit the website at:

    Fair Oaks Farms.

Tour this working dairy just minutes north of Rensselaer and sample some of its award-winning cheese. Monday-Saturday 9-5 CST, Sunday 10-5.

    Saint Joseph’s College.

Cool September

It has been a cool September thus far. We also welcomed one of our corporate guests, Richard Davis from Capetown, South Africa for a two-week stay. Our guests have enjoyed chatting with Richard about the world view and differences/similarities between our countries. I think Sally’s breakfast have caused Richard to gain a pound or two during his visit!

Cross-country in style…

We said goodbye to Mike & Candy Wyatt from Victoria, British Columbia today. They are on a cycling tour across America, on their way east to Maine. Mike said they treated themselves to an overnight stay at The White House on Park Avenue. Our prayers are with them for a safe journey. They’ll be on the road until they take the train back west in late October.

We’re experiencing the remnants of Gustav in Indiana this week. The steady rain today has been much needed, as we’ve had a dry spell recently. Now, the lawn will need mowing again!
