Little Old Women - E-I-E-I-OH OH! A glimpse of life on a special farm

Donna Sears

Susie and I have been email friends for a couple of years now. As a reader of this column she sent me a funny email, I replied, and away we went toward a new friendship. At this time in my long life, when I am losing friends, a new one is to be treasured. Susie lives with her spouse on a farm many miles north of my home in Kalkaska, so I didn’t expect that we would ever meet face-to-face, but we did.
Prior to our meeting, Susie and I discussed the possibility that we might not get along as well in person as we do in emails, but we decided it was worth a shot and set a date and time. We felt like longtime friends, but she had only seen the small photo on this column, and I wouldn’t know her if we met on the street.
