Pappy Shirk (Juniata County, PA)

There is a cute 86 year old man who I went to church with growing up.
He was and will always be known as "Pappy Shirk" because he is everyone's pap.

He has an amazing Central Pennsylvanian accent,
he has great fashion (he is often seen wearing a tan corduroy suit in church)
and is the sweetest man with the sweetest laugh I've known.

This is Betty, Pappy's wife, another gem in the world.
These two make a mean meatloaf, sour kraut,
and Pennsylvania Dutch Chicken Pot Pie (but not all in the same meal).

Anyone who has met these two LOVES them.
Everyone needs a Shirk to love.
