Some more PA obits from Jim Thorpe, PA. The German's who came over either didn't believe in obits or couldn't afford them. I received a few from Dimmick Library. The Allentown library found three obits for me and I found several recent ones on funeral home sites. The Pottsville Library is sending me 10 or so Rhode obits but I'm not sure if they are related.
About 2 weeks ago, while working on my Ford 1955 NAA tractor, I managed to trip while going into the garage for a tool and popped the Achilles tendon off my left heel. I'll be in a corrective boot for a few months while we wait for the tendon to reattach. The doctor didn't want surgery as it is difficult because of the lack of skin in that area and results with the boot are just as good.
