We would like to thank John at the furniture store on Main Street in Stonewall for his kindness.
I was desperately knocking at the window of the store, as we couldn’t find the location of the Family and Friends Christmas dinner from my notes. He opened his front door although he had turned off most lights in the store as it was 5 p.m. on a Saturday.
He immediately pointed us into the right direction. "Oh, the Red Barn. Easy," he exclaimed.
I had already given up hope of seeing friends and enjoying the dinner, as we were totally confused by the direction I had jotted down.
Apparently in Stonewall, the Road 75 North, does turn east off Highway 236. Silly us.
Thank you, John, for putting us straight and giving us the chance to be at the Christmas party. We had a wonderful time catching up with young and old friends. The children and babies were sheer joy.
