Saturday, Ruth Leatherman died in Pennsylvania. Untimely to say the least, is the death of a young woman with a husband and three small children. Mark and Ruth Leatherman volunteered 9 months of their lives for MDS and lived and worked at the Menonite Disater Services - Julian Camp in Harrison Park in 2004. Mark ran the chipper and probably worked on just about every property and neighborhood in Julian. Ruth helped run the camp which usually housed and fed 30-40 volunteers, and sometimes she went out with the crews to clear debris. They are dear friends with whom we have kept in touch over the years. We visited them in Pennsylvania in 2006 and were guests at their home for dinner. We are deeply saddened by her death and wanted to let the Julian community that someone who was, for a time, part of their community, has died. ++++/+++++++++++!++++++++++7'~ Ruth L.

I've owned my own gift shop in the tourist town of Julian for the past 7 years. In that time I've found myself in some real interesting conversations. I will share some of my favorites with you now. I sell buckwheat sage honey produced by bees in Josh Grant's bee hives. Josh and his family live a few miles outside Julian. A tourist asks, "What kind of honey is that?" (As the label states) "It's buckwheat sage honey." "Do you have any that's just buckwheat?" "No, we can't keep the bees from flying over to the sage plants." Another honey conversation. ".You just have buckwheat sage honey?" - "Yes. It's produced just a few miles from here. All of our honey comes from this area" "Do you ever get Tupelo Honey? I really like Tupelo honey." "No, Julian bees don't fly to Mississippi." Some people think everything in our store must be made in China. "1 bet everything in here is made in China." "No, actually I carry lots of things made in Julian, Central California, Massachusetts, Tennessee, Poland, Mexico, Thailand and India. I have hand painted pottery from the Ohio River Valley too." I bet the Ohio pottery is way too expensive." WOMEN, INFANTS & CHILDREN Groceries, Fresh Produce. Sundries Beer Wine Liquor Dry Cleaning, Lotto ,.Scratchers Full Service "Best in the County" Meat Department U.S.D.A. Choice Beef Buffalo Meat Special and Holiday Orders, Cut to your Specifications OPEN DAILY 6a.m. TO 8p.m. "No more expensive than pottery from China. Would you like to see some pieces?". "No. It is too expensive, I'm sure." Sometimes people ask me what my best price is on an item for [TooRL ] sale. I always tell them that my best price would be at least twice as much. That certainly would work well for me. AND When we moved Yesteryears back to downtown Julian, we took /,':J;PIAN.~3Y~LI~:P"II F'OR ~i~'O~ ----[4DZ~[4/V/O, SS[ over the shop that had been Angels and Inspirations for the past 6 t) I OPEN NON-SAT 7AN-SPH ! / years. People ask about that shop and I tell them that I carry a few 760-765-4816 / angels and would be glad to show them where my angels and fairies .T_ 3582 78 | are in the shop. My shop has just 300 square feet of floor space so a tour of the shop takes very little time. @ WAY ] Recently a woman and her 40ish year old daughter came in looking + bu for the angel shop. The elderly woman said, "1 used to buy angels from here." I offered to show her angels. "No, I used to buy angels from here." Her daughter said,"Ma, there are some beautiful angels over here." "No, I used to buy angels from here." Some people don't listen. Owning a small shop brings on interesting conversations. I've had more than one person tell me that I could probably find a particular item if I look in the back room. I have no back room and I certainly have no place to create a back room, yet once in a while I want to ask one of those customers where they think that back room is located. One day, not long after George Bush declared victory in the mid east, a group of my writer friends decided to wear re, d on Fridays until all of our troops came home. I occasionally mentioned this to customers. One day I talked with a man about wearing red on Fridays to support the troops. I told him that it doesn't mean we support the war. Specifically it means that we support all the men and women who are fighting in the war. He said that it sounded like a liberal plot. I asked, "You don't support the troops?'" He scowled at me and I'm sure I lost any possibility of selling him anything. I still wear red on Fridays. Milifary men and women 'appreciate it and r don't need to impress anyone else with my choice of color. " People like to ask when it snows here and they sound like they think we have scheduled snow. I used to work with a woman who always said it snows on January 17th. Joe Romano was rumored to tell people that we had snow even when we didn't because telling them we have {mow is a way to get people to come to Julian. Other times when asked where the snow is, I've heard one local say "Big Bear." It's important to remember that many city folks don't know what our countryside looks like. Around January city folks ask where the apples are because they can't find them and the apple trees that have no leaves or fruit on them don't seem to show up. Lilacs and daffodils can be a problem for tourists too. I get asked about them year round and people either don't believe they can grow in southern California, or they don't understand that here in the mountains, plants grow, bloom and fruit seasonally, not year round. They can buy apples all year round at their local grocery stores so they don't realize that apples don't grow throughout the year. Right now, in late October, many of our trees are in full flaming color. Several trees near the Community Methodist church have been showing off their bright yellow and orange colors for a cou )le of weeks. We don't get the show that people living in the northern states get. However, we do get a wonderful taste of autumn colors. Yet I had a tourist fell me that it's too bad we don't have trees that change color. I gave her some very specific examples of places where she could drive to see beautiful trees within a short distance from downtown Julian. She guessed she didn't look. She probably didn't see any apple trees either. One thing I like about working with the public is that conversations are never dull or boring. When does it snow here? Whenever it does and we seldom know exactly when that will happen. These are my thoughts. 3rd Thursday the Month November 1 5 "2:30"4:30 ] I Jui,an Lib-- ry I Dorothy Joan Larsen Arrington October 10, 1930 - October 12, 2012 Daughter of the late.
