My dear friend, Diane Nusbaum died last night in Bela Vista, Ark.
Our families knew each other from the St. John years—a friendship of more than six decades.
Here is a copy of her obit:

This eggplant has inadvertently been traveling in my purse since last Wednesday night. It has heard Vern Miller speak, traveled to the Kansas State Fair in Hutchinson, been to Mom’s Bar and Grill in Seward and had a little siesta at the Mexican food restaurant in Larned. Tonight, maybe dinner. But it is such a well-traveled egg plant…this is what happens when people give me garden produce.

Signs of fall.

Went to Hillsboro yesterday to cheer on the Bluejays.  A Tabor victory, 36-0.  Wow!
