More than one Apps-le on the tree!
Jerry Apps is one of the nicest guys you'll ever meet. The Friends of The Patterson Memorial Library are so fortunate to be able to provide Jerry's DVDs and Books to his fans worldwide. We now have "Jerry Apps: A Farm Story" back in stock, and are mailing out signed copies every day all over the country! This means little Wild Rose, Wisconsin, is the recipient of national attention, and even some international attention - thanks to the wit and wisdom of our native son, Jerry Apps.
There is, however, more than one apple (or crab apple) on the Apps family tree! Jerry is not the only international and national star. Jerry's brother, Darrel, is also known world-wide, not so much for writing (at least not the kind of writing Jerry does), but for his skill in growing Day Lilies (Hemerocallus something, I think). If you were one of the lucky folks to come to the Kiwanis Pancake Breakfast last year, you were able to purchase some of Darrel's bulbs at a fraction of the retail cost. Darrel has visited gardens all over the world and helped find and classify species of different plants. And Darrel is just as nice as Jerry - but don't tell him I told you!
Jerry's other Brother, Darrel's Twin, Donald is well known as a character! He owns a barber shop in Neshkoro and has been cutting hair and telling
lies stories, for 50 years or more! Donald is a wonderful humorist, albeit on the shy side when compared to the other two! Just Kidding! Don is the merry prankster!
To watch the three of them together it's like they've never grown up. It is a great thing to watch and a heckuvalotta fun! May we all age with so much humor and wisdom!
