It’s Wednesday morning at 4:40 am and it’s 57 degrees outside. His daughter Lovina went to Dustin and Loretta’s house shortly after 4 a.m. to be with Loretta while Dustin was at work. His son Joseph has just left for work. They’re building a barn nine miles from here, so he’s not working too far. Usually they work an hour and a half to two hours away. His daughter Verena is probably a mile away, staying with Ervin’s (Susan’s friend) three children. Son Benjamin leaves for work around 5:30 a.m.
My husband Joe won’t be going to work until his doctor’s appointment today, so he can sleep. I’m going with him, so I have to finish this column before I leave.
