Also sharpens the appetite as one has to wait for the food. Sunday, Mr and Mrs Kenneth Wagner •arid .children of Burt came laden wjthV chickens and pie-.filings, •a"rid'"crust and other foods'!and planned to cook the meal at Kenneth's mother's home and have dinner with her, Mrs Amy Johnson. The chicken was just nicely browned and ready for the oven, the pies just started when out went the stove! S.O.S. calls were to no avail-dealers were out of town, so the food was packed in the car and taken to Burt to finish nt the Wagners.

But she's an honest woman, and. this didn't appeal to her! The climate is about like here, she said. Forty at night, and in the seventies day times.
