Jane Green: Tying up loose ends

Jane Green
Special to the Farm Forum

Dear readers,

A belated Happy New Year to all of you! Here’s wishing each of you joy, hope, and peace in the New Year. May 2019 be the best year yet!

I also want to thank you all for reading and supporting my column the past twelve years. As near as I can figure, you dear readers have patiently read and lived through at least two hundred and eighty of my Plain Jane Adventures. Uffdah, Loolah! That’s a whole lot of living! But, with all good things, they must come to an end. I find myself at this juncture.

Now, don’t misunderstand me. My Plain Jane adventures are not ending. Oh no! Actually, my adventures are heating up; just ask my doctors and the nurses. If something ridiculous can happen at a health clinic, it has happened to me.

I blame this on my Parkinson’s disease because it is so unpredictable. These upcoming adventures of farm girl Plain Jane living with and putting up with this tricky little scoundrel that I call PD are indeed a hoot.

The stories would make for some interesting reading; however, in order to protect the innocent — mum’s the word — I’m not going to tell the stories. Sorry.

So, instead of writing another story, I’m taking this opportunity to tie up a few loose ends. First, a heartfelt thank you to the readers for your readership and kind comments. Second, a big thank you to the newspaper for publishing my stories. Third, a huge thank you to all of the editors and the newspaper staff for putting up with me.

It’s been a great ride! Thanks a million.

See you down the trail,

Plain Jane Green
