It was our pleasure to have been the painting contractor for this fine building. Mergen & Webster Algona Painters & Decorators Leo M. Mergen 295-2142 Merle G. Webster 295-3494 EDITOR'S NOTE: This column of Woman's World is a reprint from the Wednesday, Julj ~i, 1950 issue of the Algona Upper Des Moines. - o - WHEN THE GIHLS GET TOGETHER, THE number one topic oi conversation is the children. Ruiuiini; close second, as a subject for chatter is our husbands' idiosyncrasies. That's a fine two-bit word, and I had to look it up in the dictionary to find out how to spell it. It said that it means "A peculiarity of constitution or temperament: a characteristic peculiar to an individual." The next word listed was "idiot." - o - NOT THAT WE GIRLS USE THE WORD idiosyncrasies when it comes to describing our mates. We do that mostly, with a sigh, a shrug, and a rueful smile accompanied by a remark like "Oh - Men!" No matter how perfect they seem to us before marriage, they all seem to develop a few irritating habits once they become husbands. - o - TAKE THE LITTLE MATTER OF CATNAPS. We feed the brutes a good dinner and then expect them to contribute a little brilliant conversation, some entertainment, or maybe a hand with the household chores. He goes directly to his easy chair and falls sound asleep, sitting upright. The radio blares and the children play cowboy in the same room, and he sleeps on. But the noise guaranteed to leave him undisturbed is the clatter of dishes in the sink. He always sleeps until just after the little woman had dried the last dish. - o - MEN THINK WOMEN ARE THE ONLY ones with vanity. Have you ever watched your husband shave or tie his tie in front of the mirror? Be sure he doesn't know you are watching him. - o - WHEN PLANNING AN EVENING OUT, it is more often than not, the menfolks who ask each other, "What are you going to wear?" This was reported to me by two local wives who say their husbands frequently hold quite lengthy telephone conversations on the subject. However, I think this is because men are scared to death they won't look exactly like every other man in the room. Women want to look entirely different from all the rest of the girls. - o - WOMEN ENJOY TELLING, IN GREAT DETAIL, about their dreams. Men, It seems, don't tell what goes on inside their heads while they are asleep. My husband claims he seldom dreams and if he does, he won't tell me any of them. That's why I am still wondering what it was all about the night he sat bolt upright in bed and gave a great horse-laugh right out loud. Then he exclaimed, floatingly, "Aha, Hal You thought your were pretty smart, didn't you? Now maybe you aren't so smart as you thought you were I" - o ONE ALGONA WOMAN GAVE HER husband some shirts for Fathers Day. In spite of his wife's warnings, he neglects to change into his old clothes when he works on his redecorating project. Nevertheless, he has been heard to say in injured tones, "How come I'm the only one around here who doesn't have decent clothes to wear? All my shirts have paint on them? - o ANOTHER LOCAL HUSBAND WAS ALSO an amateur decorator. He painted the ceiling of their remodeled kitchen, but the project didn't go as he thought it would. Finally, one night he gave up in disgust. But before he put his brush away, he scrawled an extremely nasty word on the unpointed portion of the ceiling. Before the word was painted out, several people, including the pastor of their church, called to see how the remodeling was coming. Of course, it was up to the embarrassed wife to smooth things over. - o - ANOTHER THING ABOUT HUSBANDS IS that they don't seem to know what an extravagance is. They sometimes think a perfectly necessary item such as a new hat, an extra pair of shoes, or a piar of earrings is a waste of money. Then he comes home with a five dollar package of fishing tackle that he can carry in his coat pocket. - o - IT'S A GOOD THING HUSBANDS HAVE such good, patient wives to put up with them. What's more, we love them in spite of their quirks. And it is just possible that we gals have a very few tilings about us that irriatate them I Then, too, people get used to each other and get to know which things to take ser- * * * * * # $ We Congratulate HANK'S DAIRY CREME * * •K * * * •* # * # ON THE GRAND OPENING * OF THEIR NEWLY REMODELED STORE •* * * * IT WAS OUR PRIVILEGE AND PLEASURE * * TO HAVE BEEN CHOSEN GENERAL CON- f # TRACTOR FOR THIS FINE NEW BUILDING. * | Rowley Builders & Supply | f Rowley Builders & Supply Carpenter Shop COMPLETE BUILDING SERVICE * # # * ,# I *> * * # * For Free Estimates Phone 295-5323 210 WEST STATE # * # •* # # ALGONA * iously. No wonder there are so many suicides and nervous breakdowns in Hollywood. They change mates so often there that they don't have a chance to get used to each other's little habits before there is a divorce and a whole brand new set of problems. - o - ON THE WHOLE, I AM VERY WELL satisfied with my husband. It I traded him in on a new model, I might get one who had even worse traits. Anyway, the only really unbearable thing about the husband I have is his persistant refusal to read my column. - o - THIS WEEK'S PHILOSOPHER, TRIAL size, is eight-year- old Jimmy Dunn, who is the son of Mr. and Mrs. John Dunn. Jimmy and our six-year-old were discussing the charms of their respective baby sisters. Jimmy said, "You know, when we first got Diane, I would have sold her to anybody who wanted her for a nickel. And now I wouldn't sell her for a million dollars. The price on babies sure goes up in a hurry!" GRACE Harmes, circle B, Mrs. Alwin Huenhold; Circle C, Mrs. Netha Mathes; Circle D, Mrs. Beecher Lane.
