iMiiiiaaa*******^^ f § . 7NK in my VE/NS' Co We TV tower •y MARIAN INMAN Here I am. with my daughter, Mary Fran, in California. This is the fourth of July. Later today we are going to a neighborhood picnic and fire works. It is a sort of get acquainted with your neighbor affair as this is a new neighborhood for Fran and family. This new home of theirs is so beautiful. They arc all asleep as it is a holiday, and I am in my lovely bedroom writing this column to you. I could write • book about the many interesting character* I met on the trip out. The meti «f a young mother and three young children going from Chicago to join the lather in Colorado. The leit taid the better. The pleasant mother from Nebraska with a teen-age son and daughter, delightful young folks, going to visit near Los Angeles. I played "Password' with them and the time just flew. The father with two quite young children returning from visiting his parents in Illinois to their home in Long Beach. Nothing said about the mothers but we all wondered about her. The two fellows who looked like gangsters but who were perhaps perfectly 'harmless. At least en this trip they were. The young Negro mother with a well behaved little boy and the white mother with a little Negro boy who was a little demon. They kept to themselves so we learned nothing about them but we could overhear the white mother alternately scolding, swearing and chastizing her little boy. The Negro mother was very quiet and ladylike and surely set a good example to the white woman if she would pay attention. The older couple who were always getting lost at the rest stops, our honeymoon couple, middle aged people who must have been newlyweds as they made such open demonstration of their feelings. The lovely young woman whose husband met her at El Monte, who had been back East to be a bridesmaid for a college friend. We loved her and she was a close part of our little group, the mother with the teen-ager and myself. So many unexpected things happened so the trip was really fun, only I am not about to start on another very soon. Next Sunday, .Inly 10th we are starting on a ten day travel trip to the Grand Canyon, and a brief visit to Fran's husbands folks in Torrington, Wyoming. When we return I want to spend .some time with my sister Gertrude and more lime with Fran and then home. Here the weather has been pleasant and I wondor what it is back in Iowa. When I arrived in Torrance, my luggage was not here. One piece came a day later, the othor piece hasn't shown op yet. They have sent a tracer for it and I am concerned for it has the gifts I brought and a pair of my good shoes and my oil paints. Of course I am glad the bag with my clothes came or I should be an orphan child. There is a constant coming and going in this house. Three teen-agers (nice young people) being taken here, being called for Him 1 . Their mother, my Fran, has a schedule that is rugged and even though she exchanges with her friend Teddy (the girls came here to leach, married and have families), there is still so little time for her or so it seems to me. But I am glad that these my grandchildren are such nice well adjusted youngsters. They do have many activities but they also have home duties and arc pleasant and entertaining to be with. There are no raised voices in this family and ihe parents are scry understanding yet firm. I hope it is always so and I have reason to believe it will be as they have so fine a start. Fran is having new living room furniture to go with this new home and we arrange the old furniture over and over to decide just, .what -nH where the new pieces will be and.. where they will look best. She waited for me to help her decide and we have many discussions on it and have looked at some of the most beautiful furniture. This is a pleasant adventure for me. A plane is roaring overhead on its way to the nearby airport and the house is silent with sleepers, only the sound of the typewriter from my room. It is Independence Day 1967. Thomas Jefferson had some rules of living to which we could all pay heed: Never put off till tomorrow what you can do today. Never trouble another for what you can do yourself. Never spend your money before you have it. Never buy what you do not want because it is cheap. Pride costs us more than hunger, thirst, and cold. We seldom repent having eaten too little. Nothing is troublesome that we do willingly. How much pain the evils have cost us that have never happened. Take things always by the smooth handle. When angry, count ten before you speak; if very angry, a hundred. Olson's were the Hudson fetters and Peggy, Rotkfofd til., Earl Olsons and Jon, Cylinder, Tom Olsons and Nets Olson, West Bend.
