This was in honor of little Cindy Lou Harms seventh birthday. "Prosperity makes some friends and many enemies." WHEN A MAN HAS A BIRTHDAY HE takes a day off; but when a woman has a birthday she takes a year off. We have three Dirthclays at our this week—Father's, Mary Ann's and mine. Father's birthday isn't hurting him a bit for he's right at the very nicest age for a man; Mary Ann is looking forward to her birthday for she'll be entering her 'teens. As for me, well, I guess I'll be a year older, but 1 am not resigned to it. « » « ALMOST ANY DAY NOW, I EXPECT somebody to ask me What factors havo made me live so long. One of them is clean living. JTo live as long as I havo, you have to take several baths and abstain from dirty habits such as pinching snuff, sniping cigarette butts from gutters, and borrowing other people s toothbrushes. Another factor is good digestion—I cun cat everything just like a goat, but I do have a tendency to choke a little on the tin cans. YoU havo to have a cheerful disposition lo live as long as 1 have and you can't be blowing your lop more than three or lour times a day. « * ' * I OWE SOME OF MY LONGEVITY lo the fact that 1 have never learned to drive a car. Come to think of it, it may be true that several other people have lived longer because I have not been behind the wheel. To live a long time, you have to be able to keep breathing. I accomplish this by staying away .from girdles. • • » . . FLEETNESS OF FOOT HAS QUITE a bit to do With longevity. During my long life, in almost every case, when someone has,wanted 0 strangle mo, 1 havo boon able to run like the dickens. If this vn.'in'l practical, 1 have always mnnugdd to hide. I have also found ivoicling hard work a contributing factor, Laziness may not make' 1 person live tiny longer but it certainly makes living lots more fun. * » * ONE OF MY CO-WORKERS AT THE Algona Upper Des Moines icisisls in culling me. "a Civil War debutante". This is plainly q ase of libel. The war between the stales was all over and done with jy tho time 1 wns born, and I can't even remember much about the Spanish American one! 1 remember talking with people who weri\^--.. n World War I, but while it was being fought 1 wasn t doing 1 much Hiking. However, I do remember the Great Depression vividly. " DURING MY LIFETIME MANY CHANGES have taken place. My children aren't very impressed when 1 speak of them, so I'm "' saving my memories for my grandchildren when I get some. Surely, by thai lime I shall not only have more grey hairs added to what I havo now, 1 shall surely find somebody who has respect for them. And then, when I speak of Hie Good Old Days, they'll nod and smile and think I am quite remarkable, instead of giggling as they clo now when 1 tell them I can remember crystal sets of early radio. * * * , DURING MY LIFETIME. I HAVE seen the automobile grow from the Model T Ford, lop speed 40 m.p.h., to the beautiful, stream- < lined vehicles of potential destruction they are today. I can re*-\ member my elders speaking of poison gas as the ultimate threat of ***"' destruction should a war occur, and as an elder now I worry over the threat of Ihe hydrogen bomb. I lived through World War II and the Korean conflict. * * * PEELING Ed Kohlstedt of Alia planted a potato peeling in his garden last spring which produced a Iwo pound polalo. MY MEMORIES INCLUDE DAYS when you had to slice the bread from the bakery, and I remember the amazement I felt when, first you could buy frozen peas' and strawberries at the grocery." I recall shopping^whon each customer had his own individual clerk instead of gotnjg 'around collecting groceries in his own. basket. ,, I can remember Ui'fi ''Charleston both .tune.s^it^Wja^,. popular, and the low waistline or sack dress. I neither dantfed if or wore it either time. I remember the first talking movie at West (Union and the . first television set'in Algona. I remember the Bank Holiday of ; the '30s, the National Recovery Administration, the time" .Orson Welles , scared the living daylights out of us with his invasion from Mars •adio show, the sugar, meat, canned goods and shoe ration books of World War II. I remember Franklin D. Roosevelt, Amie Semple, tfcPherson, Wrong Way Corrigan, Father Caughlin and Joe (Wanna. buy a duck?) Penner. I can vaguely remember when Lindbergh' crossed the Atlantic in his Spirit of St. Louis and of seeing his plane later at St. Louis and in Washington, D. C. I vividly remember - ny first airplane ride and the days when, if an airplane went overj everybody rushed out in the yard to look up at it, * * * '*;'•, IN SPITE OF MY ADVANCED YEARS, I am reluctant to leave Lhis life for I don't really know where I'll be in the next one. I lave the hope of Heaven and the fear of Hell and during my stay on this earth I have experienced tastes of both of them. The samples of the nether regions, we shall not go into, but some of the cfelights granted to me during my mortal years here have certainly whetted my appetite for the better place. ' * * * ; ' . ' . I HAVE KNOWN LOVE. Surely Heaven is composed of that. Love of a good man, love of parents, the love of one's children and the opportunity to bestow great gobs of it on people who love me. I have known friendship—the kind when a persons' knows-your faults and likes you anyway. I have known laughter and have found it sometimes in the most unlikely situations. I have contributed little to the world of music, yet I've thrilled to other people's songs; I have not traveled very far, but through others I have visited many foreign lands; I have not yet written a book but my life is enriched constantly by people who have. I have found myself needed. If there isn't any work in Heaven, perhaps that is not the place for me. * * * IF I SHOULD BE CALLED TO LEAVE this life right now, I would do it only with kicking and screaming. I want to stick around to see how things come out. I want to see how our kids look as adults, I want to see them all educated and in homes >of their own and I want to know my grandchildren. I want to see a Democratic president in the White House once more, .the national debt reduced and the negotiations for a peaceful world accomplished. I want to go to Hawaii before I die, to own a fur coat, and I want lo get both my ironing and my mending done all at the same time. I want to be there when our church dedicates its new build- rig and I want to find out if our dill pickles are any good this year. \nd if my premature demise should occur, you my be sure I died ull of curiosity about what Father's second wife will be like. * * * THIS WEEK'S MAIL BROUGHT a letter from my adopted Aunt •lattie, Mrs S. R. Baker. She's from LuVerne and she chides me or not mentioning her town when I wrote about how the towns in his area got their names. The" truth is, at the time I couldn't think up anything about LuVerne and the same goes for Fenton, Ledyard, Swea City and the other towns I left out. * * * THIS WEEK'S RECIPE IS for Pineapple Whip. I found it in he Wesley Community Cook Book and it was submitted by Mrs Charles Mullin. 1 small can crushed pineapple 1 cup whipping cream , 22 marshmallows Drain pineapple. Melt marshmallows in pineapple juice. Cool, Whip cream. Fold in syrup and pineapple. Let stand to set. —GRACE.; , G.
