Due to needing to stay home for Orville Oelschlaeger’s recuperation from pneumonia, Orville and Rosie Oelschlaeger did not travel for a vacation. Instead, Gary and Linda Blanton of Troy came to them and they had several weekend “stay-cations.” Those activities included grilling at the lake, eating at a favorite restaurant, attending Annie’s Country Jubilee in Tonganoxie and several honey-do jobs. The Blantons and the Oelschlaegers celebrated wedding anniversaries together during one of the stay-cations.
John and Janice Oelschlaeger, Erin and Amy visited Orville and Rosie on their anniversary, Aug. 3. They brought a red velvet cake to share.
Thanks to everyone for all the various ways they have helped Orville and Rosie during the two months of his recuperation. He is over pneumonia and is continuing to gain strength.
