048-DSC06382Travel includes discovery, the unknown, the anticipated, the unexpected. I enjoy being at home and at home away from home. Since retirement Marty and I have visited family and friends in various parts of North America and spent some winters in the Duchy of Cornwall in southwest United Kingdom.

At home in Indiana, USA, we are involved in some volunteer assignments at Prairie Street Mennonite Church and beyond. We enjoy walking, reading, cooking, and puttering around at home. Retirement has its attractive aspects of re-firement, exploring the best of life for which the first was made, as Robert Browning wrote.



One thought on “About

  1. Hi John, Just came across a reference in michianaanabaptisthistorian.org to your research on the Mennonite Publishing House and your trip to Scottdale, PA to look for info on women who were active in the publishing company. Am wondering if you came across the names of Martin B. Fast and his wife Elisabeth Thiessen Fast and their daughter Agnes.

    M.B. was my great uncle and I am working on a book about him. Would be delighted to hear form you.
