2011 becomes the past!
I sometimes recall the story of the 1st grade student that told his teacher that he knew that God was a baseball fan. She asked how he knew this and the boy replied, "Well, at church, I heard them talking about God and the 'Big Inning'." It is my hope that Marilyn and I can have a "Big Inning" at the Shelbina Mansion. This year will require a lot of effort as Marilyn is working hard on her PhD while I will be returning to work myself. There are always a lot of factors in decisions and this is no exception. The economy has had a lot of turmoil and we have so much more that we want to accomplish in the renovation. It is also our nature to push ourselves to reach goals. The home in Shelbina grows in our hearts daily and whether you call it Benjamin House, Vesper Place, or Shelbina Mansion, the home holds a place in history that endures. We are sure that there will be tours and special events to come in 2012. Hopefully there will not be anymore Tornados!
