ONE OF THE THINGS I like best about the holiday seasons are the cards and letters from friends and readers. They are still arriving as I write this, for it isn't yet Christmas, so I'll share some of them with you - at least the ones from people you might know. - o FIRST CARD OF THE SEASON was from Leota and Fred Geigel. It reminded me that I hadn't done one thing about Christmas. Helen and Curly Pratt write their grandchildren, David and Linda keep them busy when they stay with them. They recalled eating oysters with us last winter and hope we can do it again soon. Nettie Grubb Etherington wrote that she is able to be out and around more this winter after her long enforced bed rest. Myrtle Sorensen says Jens is glad he doesn't have to mow the lawn for a while - something we are still doing. - o ZELDA REID WRITES THAT the time between Christmases certainly goes fast. Her father, Ben, is the same as usual and Benita is okay but she did have a hard fall earlier this fall. Amy Geering says she goes over to our old house occasionally when she visits Bea Lynk. Amy is right when she says I'm probably up in the clouds over the anticipated summer event. Betty Schumacher of Whittemore, wrote that both Harold's folks are in separate hospitals but that they are fairly well themselves. Millie Klamp wishes she and Walter were in Florida right now. - o DARLENE FEASTER WRITES that our mutual son and daughter will be with them for Christmas and we envy them. However, Kathie writes from Rochester, Minn, that they are having their own tree at home also. Frances Weise says she supposes she would miss the four seasons weather if she moved to Florida (this is true for a while). Frances. Kitty Phillips, and Nelda Finn all wrote that their next trips will probably be to California because of relatives. (Otherwise they'd surely prefer Florida). However, Marion (Corey) and Everett Rekers of Cedar Falls are coming to Florida for Christmas and we can hardly wait to see them. - o MINNIE LONG WROTE FROM Acampo, Calif, a letter that really gave me a lift. She has collected 48 of her favorite Woman s . World columns I I'll bet nobody but Grace has an equal number. Mrs. Long sent color photos of displays of her exquisite egg shell" art work. She teaches arts and crafts at a camp every summer. A most gracious and talented ladyl Her daughter, Trudie, a pal from my high school days, also writes that she is an avid fan. They live on a ranch now and are continually remodeling it. Trudie and her husband, Wally Clow have sons at Utah S. U. and Sacramento State and their daughter, Susan, is married and is an interior decorator. - o ANOTHER CALIFORNIA FRIEND, the former Alice Chester who was an Algona teacher, wrote that she had been married during the past year to Scott Ijams, and very happily. Her son, Jim March, was married to a "Georgia Peach" in October and Alice and her daughter, Debbie, flew there for the wedding. Betty Barry Berrie wrote from McGregor their Marina had been flooded out during the past spring but after a six-week delay was open for summer tourists, She and Roy have seven grand- ; ,children now with another expected momentarily. _ - o GOT QUITE A CHARGE OUT 0* THE Gerald Voigts of Fenton, card, It had a picture of a large family on it and it had me puzzled for a bit, The inscription read, "It's really from us- but the folks up the street take a better picture 1" The letter from the former Kathleen Evans, her husband Ralph Tingley and their daughter, Barbara, had an unusual and appropriate theme, a quotation from the Bible, It went on with "A Time to Work with Ralph's 13th year of teaching history at Sioux Falls, So, Dakota College, "A Time to Play" with their various trips, "A Time to Serve", etc. Ruth Ann Sigsbee Beardsley wrote from Lincoln, Nebraska, for us to be sure to root for Nebraska in the Orange Bowl - as if we needed any reminder, although I've been having quite an argument with my young friend who insists I should root for Alabama. ' - o MY IOWA STATE COLLEGE friend, Louise Cotnam, who later married Max Richardson of Algona, writes that their father Byron, was in New Jersey where they live last summer and they drove all over seeking out historic spots. Louie says she learned more about New Jersey from Algona's former mayor; Byron^ San she'd learned in the 20 years they've lived there. Para Waller Zender wrote from Brecksville, Ohio, that this will be their first Christmas away from home. - o GILBERT AND MARY ELIZABETH Kuyper wrote of their lightning move from St. Paul to their new pastorate at St. James, Minn They enclosed a picture of their family, an attractive group but so suddenly grown - a sentiment I duplicated when I saw the picture of Bob and Ruth Sigsbee's, Bobby, Judy, Jim and "Muriel Vuanita arid Wss "Rerilz wrote that they are getting the "Florida Fever" and would like a fishing trip with us. Their daughter, Dianna, has set Feb. 13 for her wedding date. Russ's father Estel, must be a person with much stamina - he and his wife, Selma, wrote. from Crystal River, Fla. that this summer they started on a trip north and Estel had 22 teeth pulled in North Carolina and then continued a fe v hours later on a non-stop trip to Michigan and thence to Burt and Algona! - o SHIRLEY PRATT WROTE THAT she and Merle like their new home at Pella, Their Bob had a lead in a S. C. I. Christmas play, and my darlings, Dave and Deb, are growing like proverbial weeds. Corrine and Glenn Gabrielson wrote from Sexton that they especially enjoy family items in this column even though they know how youngsters feel about having themselves written about. Marie and John DuttonwiU have all their family home for Christmas except George and family of California - they usually take their vacation in the summer with the family in the Algona cottage at Cass Lake. - o ~ DORRIS LONG PITCHER, Wellesville, Pa. writes her usual Christmas tale of her busy and interesting life. She's taking college courses and also teaching high school English and Latin. Kay Isaacson, now of Fort Dodge, had her color workshop written up in Editors Digest of New York. Mary Corrine bmith writes that she and Craig enjoyed meeting their newest grandchild, Mary Beth in October. Isabel Greenberg Alt, West Des Moines, and her husband, Don, will have their Marilyn who works in Chicago and Sally, student at S. U. I., and Jim, 14, all home for a week, Ken and Thelma Knudsen, Des Moines, eldest daughter, Karen, is married and lives in New Jersey and Linda is a S. U. I. student. Alice Zeigler Gaines and Art, Pine Lawn, Mo., were through sarasota last summer but couldn't stop. We're still looking forward to a vieit from John and Elaine Bishop, Pittsburgh, and Jim Bishop, Cincinnati, Ohio, is due here soon since he is taking an early retirement from the bus company. - o - JUST ENOUGH ROOM TO WISH you all a Happy New Year.
