Bo and Ida

We surely enjoyed having lunch with Bo and Ida Sharp at the Burger King in St.Cloud today. We learned that Bo's great, great grandfather was none other than the inventor of the Ferris Wheel. Tru dat. It made it's debut at the Chicago Fair in the later part of the 1890's. Each car could hold over 100 standing people and was designed to be taller than the Eiffel Tower. There is a Japanese woman who is a survivor of the bomb dropped on Nagasaki who works at this particular Burger King, but she's been out sick recently so we weren't able to meet her just yet. Please pray for a speedy recovery. She'd be around 68 years old if my calculations are correct.
