AUG 4, ’19 I’M SO EXCITED I COULD JUST PUKE!!

AUG 4, ’19 I’M SO EXCITED I COULD JUST PUKE!!   🙂  LOL!!!!

IN ALL THE YEARS GARY & I HAVE BEEN MARRIED WHEN EVER I’M EXCITED ABOUT SOMETHING IN OUR LIVES—- I SAY TO HIM—— I’M SO EXCITED I COULD JUST PUKE!!! IT IS OUR FAMILY JOKE!!!!!!!

WELL—- I DON’T EVEN KNOW WHERE TO START—– SO– I’LL JUST JUMP IN WITH BOTH FEET—- AND SEE IF I CAN EXPLAIN!!!

FIBER FACTORY 1 AGAIN

IN ABOUT A WEEK THIS WILL BE OUR NEW HOME—— TWO 1890’S BUILDINGS ON THE MAIN STREET OF COTTONWOOD FALLS, KS. USA!!!

WE NEVER EVER- EVER- EVER DREAMED THIS WOULD ONE DAY BE OUR HOME——- BUT IF YOU FOLLOW GOD– HE DOES GIVE US SURPRISES IN OUR LIVES!!!!

WE ARE BUYING FROM CAROL & CHARLIE KLAMM’S CHILDREN–AS CAROL & CHARLIE ARE NOW IN HEAVEN—– AND THEY RAISED GOOD CHILDREN—— BUT NEVER DREAMED WE WOULD ONE DAY BE LIVING IN CAROL & CHARLIE’S FIBER FACTORY & HOME!!

IN THE 1990’S WE OWNED A MOTEL IN STRONG CITY KANSAS–— AND OUR DEAR FRIENDS CAROL & CHARLIE KLAMM WHO HAD LIVED IN TOPEKA, KS.  FOR YEARS BUT BOTH WERE FROM CHASE COUNTY OF KANSAS—- WERE RETURNING TO COTTONWOOD FALLS, KS. & ENDED UP BUYING TWO BUILDINGS ON MAIN ST OF CWF & TOTALLY REMOLDED THE BUILDINGS INTO THEIR  FIBER FACTORY BUSINESS & HOME-

SUE ELLEN REDONE

ALL DURING THE RENOVATION PROCESS– CAROL & CHARLIE SOME TIMES STAYED AT OUR MOTEL- AND SHARED WITH US THEIR PROGRESS- & PLANS & WE WOULD GO OVER & LOOK AT WHAT PROGRESS WAS BEING MADE—- AND HEAR THEIR STORIES—& EAT TOGETHER—– ETC– ETC — NEVER EVER- EVER- EVER DREAMING THAT ONE DAY WHAT THEY WERE DOING WOULD BE OUR FUTURE HOME!!

I HAVE ALWAYS SAID CAROL & CHARLIE ARE TWO OF THE NICEST PEOPLE GOD EVER PUT ON THIS EARTH- —- I DON’T REMEMBER NOT KNOWING CAROL & CHARLIE– I KNEW THEM BOTH BEFORE THEY WERE A COUPLE——

MY PARENTS BOUGHT CHARLIE KLAMM’S PARENTS PROPERTY IN 1968 JUST OUT SIDE OF CWF— THE DAY OF THE KLAMM’S AUCTION– WHEN I GOT HOME FROM THE ACTION—— I WENT TO THE HOSPITAL THAT NIGHT- AND THE NEXT DAY GAVE BIRTH TO OUR DAUGHTER!!

MY PARENTS WERE VERY GOOD FRIENDS OF CAROL’S PARENTS-  THE REMY’S & USE TO GO VISIT THEM IN FORSYTH, MO. WHERE THEY MOVED TO FROM CHASE COUNTY  WHEN THEY RETIRED—

AS I SAID— I CAN’T REMEMBER NOT EVER HAVING A CONNECTION WITH CAROL & CHARLIE.

Carol Klamm

CAROL KLAMM WAS ONE OF THE SWEETEST LADIES & I DO MEAN “A LADY”– I HAVE EVER MET— I HAVE NEVER HEARD HER SAY A HARSH WORD OR A BAD THING ABOUT ANYONE!! AND SO MANY TALENTS— SHE LOVED WEAVING- AND THEN GOT CHARLIE HOOKED ON WEAVING ALSO—- THUS THE FIBER FACTORY WAS STARTED!!

CHARLIE KLAMM AGAIN

CHARLIE DID ABOUT A BILLION THINGS FOR THE CITY OF CWF & PEOPLE IN CWF– MOST PEOPLE NEVER EVER KNEW ABOUT—— THEY WERE JUST TWO REALLY GOOD PEOPLE WHO DID GOOD THINGS—— AND NEVER EVER WANTED TO BE RECOGNIZED FOR DOING!!

CHARLIE KLAMM

CHARLIE HAD A LOVE FOR TRACTORS—— AND RESTORED SEVERAL AS ANOTHER HOBBY—- CHARLIE WAS A REALLY GOOD PHOTOGRAPHER & I FOUND OUT FROM THEIR DAUGHTER KAYE’S HUSBAND THAT CAROL IS THE ONE WHO TAUGHT CHARLIE AGAIN—–   🙂

CHARLIE– WE KNEW WAS A PACK RAT!!!!  BUT WE HEARD A “REAL PACK RAT” FROM KAYE’S HUSBAND  CHARLIE WHO CLEARED OUT THE ATTIC—– I’M SURE WE WILL RUN A REAL CLOSE SECOND– IF NOT TIE WITH CHARLIE ON BEING PACK RATS– AS GARY & I BOTH ARE PACK RATS- ONE PACK RAT SHOULD NOT MARRY ANOTHER PACK RAT!!

AGAIN— IN ALL THE YEARS THAT CAROL & CHARLIE HAD THE FIBER FACTORY & WE VISITED THEM IN THEIR SHOP- OR BUSINESS- & ALSO THEIR HOME—-AND NEVER DID WE EVER -EVEN DREAM OF LIVING THERE————

I KNOW PEOPLE ARE GOING TO SAY— YOU ARE MOVING AGAIN—- AND YES –WE ARE —–AND WE ARE MOVING TO WHERE GOD HAS  DIRECTED US—— AND I’M NOT EVEN GOING TO TRY TO EXPLAIN THAT ONE————–

AND I’M SO EXCITED I COULD PUKE!!!!!!!!!  🙂   LOL!!!!

I HAVE BEEN PACKING- AND PACKING- AND PACKING– AND TRYING TO SIZE DOWN—-

THE PROPERTY WE ARE BUYING IS GOOD SIZED—- AND WE WILL NOT HAVE A BUSINESS- I REPEAT WE WILL NOT HAVE A BUSINESS— WILL NOT EVER OWN A BUSINESS AGAIN—— AFTER OWNING & MANAGING OVER 15 OR MORE IN OUR LIVES– WE HAVE HAD ALL THE FUN WE CAN HANDLE OF WORKING FOR THE PUBLIC & OWNING A BUSINESS—– WE ARE RETIRED — THE PROPERTY WILL ONLY BE OUR HOME!! I STILL HAVE TO SIZE WAY DOWN—- WE HAVE WAY TOOOOOOOOOO MUCH STUFF!!!!!!!!!!!!!

WE KEPT GARY’S LOTS AT 716 MULBERRY IN CWF— SO GARY WILL MOVE HIS WORK SHOP IN TO CWF– AND HAVE THAT AREA— FOR HIS –DO WHAT EVER UNTIL THE TIME HE DECIDES TO SELL IT—

716 MULBERRY

716 MULBERRY HAS A BEAUTIFUL VIEW- AND LOTS OF STORAGE FOR US– & ALSO A PLACE FOR GARY TO PLANT MORE FLOWERS——- ETC——–

THE BUILDINGS WE ARE BUYING ON THE MAIN ST OF CWF——- HAVE BEEN MANY THINGS SINCE THEY WERE BUILT IN THE 1890’S & I HAVE BEEN COLLECTING STORIES-WHEN NO ONE KNEW WE WERE EVEN GOING TO BE BUYING IT——–AND I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO MORE STORIES ABOUT THE BUILDINGS——-

About sondasmcschatter

I was encouraged to start a blog as I suffer from MCS /multi chemical sensitivities & other health problems & I have helped several hundred others who suffer from MCS set up "Safe Homes" & given them encouragement & HOPE & share information & lots of laughs along the way also. When you choose to use fragrances, chemicals, or pesticides, You are not simply making a choice for yourself, You are making a choice for everyone around you!!!! What makes me an expert on MCS-- not a darn thing-- BUT have lived with it for years-& years- & have learned lots the HARD WAY-- by experience!! And want to give others help & HOPE & encouragement -- as I know there are not many who understand what it is to live with this illness- & ALL THAT GOES WITH IT!!! Internet has been my way of communication with many who we are confined to their "safe homes" all over the USA & other countries!! I have communicated with many HUNDRED by e-mail-- phone & letters & internet forums-- I hope this blog will help in a better way to share laughter-- hope & information!!! As for many are not any longer able to even leave their homes-- & communication is sooo important & sharing & encouragement & GIVING HOPE!!!

    We know when God works for you to move, to not move is disobeying Him. Praying for this to be a wonderful move and your new home becomes a haven and happy spot for you and Gary.

    Blessings,

    Deb

    Congratulations!! I love old building. Yours is SO cute.

  3. I cannot believe you’re moving again! LOL But I certainly understand the question of could one of you live alone where you are now. So glad you were able to get this building, and I know you are excited about turning it into your new home. I’ll be thinking of and praying for you as you make this move, my friend.
