Coffee With Lil

As I write this it’s absolutely pouring outside. The Pella Christian Grade School band is on its’ way to the Orange City Tulip Time. Hope by the time they get there that the rain is “rained out”. Carson is playing drums and Delaney is a flag girl and Amber is going along as a chaperon. She went last year too and I think she and her friends had as much fun as the kids. I don’t know if chaperons are really allowed to have that much fun.

This week as promised I have a school friend from high school to interview- she is the one with the wonderful easy cinnamon rolls that I featured last week. Eunice will be remembered as Eunice Vershuure and is now Eunice Keuning. She and her husband Bob live north and west of Monroe on a farm.

Bob and Eunice have two boys, Brian and Peggy who live on an acreage near Greenfield. Brian works for the USDA and commutes to Des Moines and his wife Peggy teaches at Nodeway Valley schools. They have two children, Kelli, 20 and she attends S.W. Iowa Community College and Lucas , soon be to 18 and a junior at Nodeway Valley.

Their other son Mike is married to Kathy and they have two children also. Colton is a junior at PCM high school and Chase 12, is in 6th grade, also at PCM. Mike farms with Bob and Eunice and is a cattle buyer. Kathy teaches at PCM schools.

Bob and Eunice are in the stage of life when they are still on call, especially Bob for his son during field work time and they also spend lots of time watching the grandkids in their various activities. They also like to travel and manage to squeeze in many interesting trips. Last winter they went to visit Bob’s brother in Hawaii of all places. Everyone should have a relative in Hawaii especially when it’s winter in good old Iowa.
