It was a special day when sisters Nancy (Jones) Black of Indianapolis (left) and Karen (Jones) Kaser of Carmel (right) recently visited their hometown of New Carlisle and visited The Village Shoppes!  Both of these ladies graduated from New Prairie High School, Nancy in 1973 and Karen in 1969.  It's obvious they discovered the fountain of youth sometime between then and now!

Next time you stop by,  bring us some of that magic potion (and don't wait long)!

Did You Know...
It is thought that "buck", the slang term for a dollar,  is linked to...deer!

 Although the  history of the word is difficult to pin down with absolute certainty, the popular theory is completely plausible because of documented evidence.  In 1748, many years before the first U.S. dollar was minted, there is a reference to the exchange rate for a cask of whiskey being "5 bucks", referring to deer skins.  In yet another documented reference, it was noted in a pioneer's journal that someone had been "robbed of the value of 300 bucks." 
N ow you can  sleep peacefully tonight!
