This once stately mansion in Ellsworth KS, priced at $39,000, has more than 5,000 square feet of useable space. There is original woodwork and it needs work and love to return it to its 1910-era glory. For many years, it served as the Ellsworth County jail. I really don’t remember any of the history of the house, except bits and pieces, but I’m sure there are local people who could tell a lot about it. It’s listed on zillow.
I’ve had a good weekend, quiet with some friends who stopped by to visit. Friday night after trivia, Ann and Terry Headrick stopped by with some “garments” for me and during the discussion, we decided to go to the Korean Restaurant for a bowl of soup. It’s the only place in town where you can get HOT from the stove soup. Every other place in town you have to send the soup back to the kitchen for reheating. If you want it spicy hot, Joomi will make it that way for you too. And we did.
They make their soup with Ramen-like noodles, but they aren’t the Walmart variety, they are Korean noodles. They make the soup with chicken and slivers of various fresh veggies. It’s filling and delicious.
And, the best part was that friends from Ellsworth were there eating too. I don’t often see my friends so it was a special treat…
We’re gearing up for the soup supper on Friday. I’m especially looking forward to it as Tyler is coming from Cincinnati. Also joining us will be Ally, Todd, Karen, Jan, Ann and Terry. There will be a houseful here for soup, relishes and pie..maybe 900 friends of the Palace. Earlier in the day I will be removing cellophane wrappers from all the Marcon pies…and the homemade ones that are donated. I’m able to do that while being seated. My favorite position. My ability to walk is getting worse by the day, imo.
Today was laundry day. I only did a couple of loads and called it quits. It’s exhausticating for me so I do only what is necessary for the moment. I have clean duds for a while.
We had fried chicken today for lunch that was pretty good. Once they get the hang of how to do it, I wish they’d remember the next time it’s on the menu.
I haven’t heard anything about my friend, Doris. I was expecting a call tonight…maybe I’ll hear tomorrow. They are very aware of and abide by HIPAA regulations so it’s hard to get information on your friends well-being. Maybe tomorrow. I worry about her ability to thrive, but she is an amazing person.
Politic and religion aren’t discussed around here very much. What I have overheard is that most people are not voting for anyone who is now in office. That’s a good thing.
Thanks for tuning in…
