Mrs Martin Mimbach visited at Wesley with Mrs Bill Green who has been in poor health. The ladies were next door neighbors here some years ago. One advantage to the hot weather for the ladies is less cooking The men have been too tired to eat any more than sandwich meals or maybe just too tired to complain about it.
