He answered "I am John Cotton calling from Spencer and was given the wrong number." 1 said, "I am Evelyn Cady and I live at the Good Samaritan Home. How many people do you know in Spencer." "Oh, practically everybody." I said "Do you know Jens Sondergaard?' Sure do!" he replied. I said "Tell him hello for me and that you actually talked with me". "I sure will," he promised. * * * Glenn Naudain's Rock Hills, S. C. is a beautiful place and one spot of particular beauty is Glencairn Garden, four blocks from bis home. He sent me a folder in color and a resume of how the garden was started and by whom. Dr. David Bigger started it as a hobby in 1928 and named it for his ancestral home in Scotland. In 1958, Mrs. Bigger deeded the property to the city. * * * A letter from my cousin, Gayle Henderson, says they are finally located in their new home in Glendale. There were several things to be done and un-done, but the "ship" is now on "even keel". Little Katie has doubled her weight, her hair gets redder and curly, like her mother and her grandpa Melvin. He was the cutest little fellow- and such a nice looking youngster. Gayle has always resembed him so much and Katie is following the pattern, which pleases me. * * * The death of Harvey Peck takes away a friend I have known many years. He was a clerk in the Chrischilles store years ago and I a very young girl, going in there to buy things was always called "Miss Cady" by him. It made me feel so grown up and important. He has called on me here at Good Samaritan several times and we had so many mutual acquaintances and had such good chats. His brother Bert and family lived next door and Lela, the daughter, and I played together as youngsters. There was a sister Pearl who married Carl Setchell and later married Charley Lampright. Pearl was a tiny woman-short and a little on the plump side. Both she and Bert have been deceased several years as well as Bert's wife, Minnie. Minnie was one of the best natured women I ever knew. A wash house was built near the home and on wash days we could hear her sing. The harder she worked the louder she'd sing. My grandmother Cady was very fond of her. * * * A recent letter from my late cousin Harry Goddard*s wife, Vinnie, says it is possible she will be moving from Wichita, Kan. to Rolfe, her old home. Since the death of Harry, her sister Ethel, who lived with them, and a brother who lived in Wichita, her thoughts turn more and more to her old home and it is at Rolfe Harry and Ethel are buried, and her parents, too. I hope she can find a place she likes and there is a possibility now. It will seem good to me to have a relative quite near. I have inst her cousin and husband, Mr. and Mrs. "Chuck" Lehnus, and aunt, Minnie Jarvis, several times when Vinnie and Ethel came up for visits, and others whose names I do not recall. * * * I was interested in the item in the Register recently about Wayne King and his saxophone. I have always had him, Lawrence Welk and Sammy Kay on my list of top favorites. I always liked Rudy Valee, too, and how eagerly I awaited their radio programs. * * * A personal message. I'd love to meet you Andy - any time after 3 p.m. I am a lazy person and have a nap from 1 to 3 each afternoon - or my evenings are free, if that would suit you better. * * * Rev. and Mrs. Walter Noland are on vacation at Burlingame, Calif., for two months. Doctor's orders for Rev. Noland. They will be with their daughter Beja. Beja, pronounced "Bay-Jah," It is an unusual name and I asked her how she found such an odd name. She said she had a girl friend whom she thought a great deal of who had that name. I thought Natacha was odd too and have since found a second girl of that name. The first one I learned was named by her father who had read a book, the heroine of which was a lovely girl named Natacha. In our apartment at one time we had a famfly, Mr. and Mrs. Troy Holt, who named their first baby Melody. The second one was named Delight, and I never did hear what the third one was called. The family moved to Florida and it has been years since I've heard from them. Can you think of a name to follow Melody and Delight? * * * I had quite a chat with Ruth Phillips and their tornado experiences. They aren't a bit enthused over a repeat performance. This goes for Polly Rosensteil Gletchll, who lives at Sexton, Too. * * * I had such a dainty, pretty May Tu«day, May 16, 1967 Algona (la.)

REGISTERED JEWELEP AMERICAN GEM SOCIETY ALGONA. IOW A basket from MargDahl, plus very good cinnamon rolls, and assorted candy. One kind I hadn't seen in years. Licorice, which comes practically by the yard- ribbed and hollow. She had cut it in inch pieces-or maybe it can be purchased that way now. I haven't been in the stores for so long to take notice. Anyhow, it was good and renewed my youth. The basket was made of a detergent bottom, cut about an inch and half deep, then two shades of nylon made into a ruffle to go around it and a handle of ruffled nylon One of the women who works here was so intrigued by it she took it home for her granddaughter * * * I was reminiscing with a friend about Zada Brunson Davis and mentioned she and her husband had a suite in the Duluth hotel in that city - located on a site with a beautiful view of the lake. I was informed it has been torn down. I didn't think to ask what replaced it - probably a more deluxe hotel, for this was back in the mid-thirties when Zada lived there. Newer and better buildings are always replacing the old. * * * I am always interested in Biblical history and the other day I read a logical explaination of how the waters of the Red sea were parted so the Israelites could flee from the pursuing Egyptians. Evidence of a mammoth volcanic explosion created a 1200 foot deep crater on the sea floor. It is reasonable to assume that the water may have rushed into the great hole, causing the sea to withdraw out of Moses* path, then swirled back on the Egyptians. Human remains have been found on the sea bottom, which adds credence to the theory. * * * If s believable - "Where women are concerned, choosing a husband is like buying an old house; half the fun is in the remodeling." + + * Knowing of my interest and enjoyment of the Lawrence Welk hour, "Heinle" Stebritz phoned me that he had just read in a TV magazine that he is letting the Lennon sisters leave his program. They had asked for a larger salary which after 13 years I think is due them. Welk disagreed and I think he will find he is making a big mistake. The girls have endeared themselves to all viewers - they are thought of as friends and we are interested in their personal lives. We have seen little Janet grow from a child to a young woman, perhaps by now a mother, for it is evident and has also been announced she is awaiting the stork.
