Happy Easter and Spring Greetings!
Pony Keg Show Reflections: I am excited to be managing The 2021 Pony Keg Craft and Vendor Show for Brad Wright of The Pony Keg Carryout and Deli. This year is our first year and hopefully this event will become a yearly event. Brad is all about helping and promoting other small business owners in our area. Brad immediately said yes to me, when I first proposed managing a craft and vendor show for him. We are still looking for vendors, so please feel free to reach out to me at (567) 712-8026.
Let us read the Holy Gospel according to St. John Chapter 2:1-12, before we get to the vendors list and list of OIL Press Events and links to entry forms for both The Pony Keg Craft and Vendor Show and the Vaughnsville Craft and Vendor Show, and yes we still need vendors for both shows:
"2:1 And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and the Mother of Jesus was there: 2 And both Jesus was called, and His disciples, to the marriage. 3 And when they wanted wine, the Mother of Jesus saith unto Him, 'They have no wine.' 4 Jesus saith unto her, 'Woman (or My dear lady according to my pastor, Reverend Michael Phillips,), what have I to do with thee? Mine Hour is not yet come.' 5 His Mother saith unto the servants, 'Whatsoever He saith unto you, do it.' 6 And there were set there six water pots of stone, after the manner of the purifying of the Jews, containing two or three firkins apiece.
7 Jesus saith unto them, 'Fill the water pots with water.' And they filled them up to the brim. 8 And He saith unto them, 'Draw out now, and bear unto the governor of the feast.' And they bare it. 9 When the ruler of the feast had tasted the water, that was made wine, and knew not, whence it was: (but the servants, which drew the water, knew;) the governor of the feast called the bridegroom, 10 And saith unto him, 'Every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse: but thou hast kept the good wine until now.' 11 This beginning of Miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested forth His Glory; and His disciples believed on Him. 12 After this He went down to Capernaum, He, and His Mother, and His brethren, and His disciples: and they continued there not many days" (KJV 1611).

My Green Irish Angel Statues: My Green Irish Angel Statues are really cute! They are only $1 each and they make great gifts. I have three kinds: 1. Cross-Bearing Angels, 2. Praying Angels, and 3. Angels Holding Butterflies. I like the Cross-Bearing Angels the best, because they are carrying Crosses. Each one bearing a Cross reminds us, that Jesus died on the True Cross to save every single person from death, Hell, Satan, Satan's Demons, Original Sin from Adam and Eve, and their personal sins. They're available exclusively at Jen's Furniture and Collectibles (JFC) on the corner High Street and Chestnut Street in between Circle K Gas Station and Zion Lutheran Church (NALC) in St. Marys, Ohio.
Stores Carrying My Books: My books, which I’ve written and published, are also available at the following stores: Brunner News Agency on Flanders Avenue in Lima, Ohio, Jen’s Furniture and Collectibles (JFC) on High Street in St. Marys, Ohio, The Menagerie at 1178 Indiana Avenue behind Beer Barrel in the St. Marys Business Complex in St. Marys, Ohio, Readmore Hallmark Stores out at Eastgate Plaza and on Elm Street in Lima, Ohio, Wagner's IGA Grocery Store in Minster, Ohio, and in the Shop section of my website ohioirishlutheranpress.com .
