Have you ever thought of how, no matter how bad thSnQi have been, hbW many failures, come spring we farm- en hive new hope. We plan our crop planting, purchase our setd, new little chick* arrive, pink piglets squeal, new born ealver patter along the pasture with their mothers, and lambs gambol about. Winter is over and April's in the skies. Every bit of green pushing through :the earth, each new born creature lightens oiir spirits. We think, this year, things will be fine. We forget our troubles, we are starting over. It's a wonderful feeling. Everybody ought to plant something, a tree, a bush, or a flower. It adds to the richness of life. Watching it grow brings an interest in nature, in the sun and the rain. Whether it be a simple shrub in the doorway of a costly planting, it is something that is ours, we have set it out, we tend it and watch it grow. A shrub in the doorway brings to mind a set of decayed farm buildings that we passed last spring on our way to Fargo to visit our Aunt Barbara. These buildings were right along the highway. A large old fashioned, lilac bush in the doorway of the old home was in full bloom. s I let my mind dream into the past. Once this place was the home of a farm family. The lilac made me feel they loved beauty and were happy in spite of hard work. They were together.'Mother and Dad are hb doubt gone to their rest and the children have other plans for the land. The corn rows were up to the,old buildings, one day soon nothing to mark the spot of this once a home, even the lovely old gnarled lilac bush would be swept under. Progress, yes, a part of the times but progress with nostalgia. My little grandchildren had so much fun in playing April Fool jokes on me and to acid to their delight I fell into their plans. Charles Lamb remarked in his "Essay's of Elia" that it would be interesting to know who was the greatest fool that'ever lived. The truth is that we all have a touch of the motely; and on April Fool's Day let no man stand aloof. "Let each man bestride his hobby," said Lamb indulgently, "and dust his bells to what tune he pleases."

For. said Lamb, "he who hath not a dram of folly in his mixture hath pounds of much worse matter in his composition." When we play a joke on April Fool's Day we are only wearing our grandfather's shoes. National Laugh Week which begins on April Fool's Day and continues for the next tan days will be over when you read this column. But' any special day or week that is set aside for a certain commemoration is only a reminder to observe the occasion all year long. National Laugh Week's avowed purpose is to .put a smile on the map of America. So laugh and be happy. The most utterly lost of all days is the one in which you have not once laughed. Laugh, and the world laughs with you; Weep, and you weep alone. For the sad old earth, must, ; bprrow i&i^l'itJhiai.nri Itlias trouble's enough of it's own. .; Ella Wheeler Wilcox. Well, we found out in the recent storm just how dependent we are upon electricity. Without it, no heat, no light, no water, no place to cook. Our family and community's story match up with all the stories published in the papers. This occasion brought out the best in folks and I heard of no one who did not share his lot or help another in need. Amazing too, how all of those huge snow drifts disappeared almost over night. I melted some of the snow for water for my house plants that survived the cold house. I lived next door at my son Phil's home, upstairs where they have a space heater which we made do all sorts of things, from cooking to toasting bread, to heating. There is a wood, coal furnace down stairs but electricity works a fan for circulation and with the wind at such high velocity we were afraid of fire so stayed up stairs. I went over there on Wednesday morning ^and came home Thursday evening after the electricity was on and my house had warmed up. I'll never again take for granted the many conveniences I enjoy. Don't forget to take time to enjoy your family and friends, really look at them and be thankful you have them. There is always time to read a good book. It is how you apply your time. What you really want to do you'll find a way to do. Have you baked that batch of cookies for the grandchildren? Frost them, they love frosting. Smile a little, laugh a little, you exercise your facial muscles and the effect on you is like taking a spring tonic and all for free. Try it, you'll see.
