Day 74

Lucille and Eymard

June 8th, 2010

I was drawn to their house by the large stone grotto in their front yard (more on this to follow). They gave me tours of the grotto and their beautiful garden, and fed me some great homemade food, including the first batch of strawberries from their garden this year.

    Sweet couple, and what an unusual name in Eymard. Love his boy scout shirt, too. Does it say “The Adventure Continues?” If so, there’s another sign for your cart, Matt.

  2. Deb69 says:

    Remember that 13 year old Scout that emailed you a couple of weeks ago? He belongs to T68 in Beavercreek OH!!! Eymard seems like a hell of a guy! Keep the pics and stories coming. God Speed!

  3. Mike in Florida says:

    1 Peter 4:8-9 – Most important of all, continue to show deep love for each other, for love covers a multitude of sins. Cheerfully share your home with those who need a meal or a place to stay..
    Lucille and Eymard are but two of many servants of God who have Blessed Matt’s life. I love to see Gods Love and Jesus life lived through so many people in a land most believe God has Forsaken..

  4. Janine says:

    What wonderful people. I bet Eymard’s book is as hoot.

  5. Harriette Scherer says:

    Lucille and Eymard told me of their overnite guest, and provided the website. I am thoroughly enjoying the
    journey with you,-the shoe leather. Lucille and Eymard are indeed some of the pillars of our community–
    volunteers for many causes.

    I hope you enjoyed your trek across Minnesota, and that you learned a little of ‘How to speak Minnesotan’,
    Yah shore! You betcha!! That can be used in Nort Dakota, too. Happy trails Harriette
