(10.) Up^r D«, Greeting cards continue to pour In and I'll share messages with you, as many are from persons you know well. * * * Elsa Goeders, Independence, Mo., says she is being greatly troubled with arthritis for which 1 am sorry. We'd have a lot to talk about, like two persons sitting, rocking chairs, and talking about their "operations." I'll say this, "arthritis goes close to the top of being one of the meanest ailments" and there are so few cases that respond to medication or therapy. Fortunate is the one who finds even relief. Wish you still lived in Algona, Elsa. You are so nice to talk with. Greetings to Jeanette and best Yuletide happiness to both of you. * * * Greetings from the Merlon Bakers. She was here frequently when her father, Bill Hedrick, was a resident following a stroke. He had what it takes-SPUNK- and was determined to walk again. He has accomplished it, too. Was released some time ago and is home and getting along wonderfully and walking very well. Mrs. Harold Andreasen, Burt, nee, Thelma Van Dorston, wrote that she and her husband were in Sarasota, Fla., last winter and visited Ruth Turner, a former resident here. Her mother lives with her and is feeling fine, but has to watch her activities and not over-do. A married son, Lee Turner, lives near Ruth and his mother. Delia Moe, now Mrs. Ted Koschler, lives at Miami, Fla. Delia's mother, Freda Moe, lives here in the same house she has occupied for years. Minnie Long of Acampo, Calif, says they are having extremely cold weather for California. 42 degrees with 40-mile-per-hour winds and frost every morning. * * * From Harold Hutchins came original verse containing nice sentiment. And a most flattering addition to my address. Thank you, Harold. Thursday, Jan. 4, 1968 'HiiniinntnniiiiiiiiiniiiiiiiiiiiiiiHiiiiiiiHiiiiiiiiiimntiimi . .by Evelyn A group of carolers were here and left handmade cards for us. Apparently my name had been assigned to Joan Elbert who had done a good job of designing a church and fir tree. Such a cute letter from Mabel Livingston of Apache Junction, Ariz. She was being a "dog sitter" to a puppy given to her niece by a boy friend. Fortunately, the job will last only through the girl's vacation and Mabel hopes she will be able to survive. The mother of the pup is supposed to be an Alaskan Husky. The father wasn't mentioned so maybe he's just a "traveling man." Mabel says, "Never had a dog, never wanted one," so she is regarding this job with some misgivings. I am like her. * * * A lengthy letter came with a detailed acount of their activities and a picture of the Dr. Cady family and some separate ones of the boys. But in Jeanne's haste, she sent two of one of the lads. From Fern Foster, one of my adored Currier and Ives cards. How I love them! Sorry to hear hospitalized, Roy- Gardenia, Calif, a very unpleasant you are greatly home again. you have been Waterhouse of Emphysema is ailment. Hope improved and Dr. Lyle and Yarda Ellis also sent a Currier and Ives. Thank you, too. Yarda is Sigrid Nelson Kohlhaas' sister. Dr. Ellis brings her out here each summer and spends quite a lot of time here, too. * * * From Austin, Tex., came a letter from my cousin EdwinCady's daughter, Fran. She and her husband, Dr. Bob Zschappel, have a new addition to the family, Kenney, born Oct. 8. Others are Brad and Sharon. Edwin died Aug. 16, 1966, and his wife Mamie continues to live in their home in Houston. It was her wedding Lizzie Post and I attended. Bob was interning and Fran is an R.N. He is now a full- fledged doctor of a few years. A card and a call from Helen Hutchison who has traveled so widely. When she has time to catch her breath, she promised to spend some time with me and give me a detailed account. The Raymond Henrys of Lansing, Mich., will have a nice holiday. Betty's mother will be with them from Kirksville, Mo. and both Patty and Kathy and husbands, plusKathy's20-month-old Wendi. * * * Mary King informed me Horace has been, hauling wood for his fireplace as he enjoys the fire every night. Most of the family will be with them Christmas, one lad home from Annapolis and one will be in from the Bahamas. I'm sure missing Marg Dahl, but am glad she is having such a nice time. She said, "Real cold here today. Must be down in the 30's. Saw in the paper where many places have had snow. Down in Nuremberg-140 miles south of Frankfort, they have had so much snow the roads were blocked.. We spent last weekend there. It was cold but no snow, not even on the mountains." She said she and her sister-in-law, Estel, went to church, and met the minister, a chaplain from' Georgia. Many will remember Mr. and Mrs. Carl Rowe who lived here a good many years ago. He was American Express agent and they lived across the street from us. Mrs. R., whom everyone called Betts, and mother and I became especially good friends and when they were transferred to Eagle Grove and then to their home town at Atlantic, we visited them. Alas, both are now deceased, but I had a note from the daughter, Mrs. Paul Myers, Omaha, and I plan to write her soon. * * * A card from the Willis Bradleys, Minneapolis, informs me they are at Sun City, Ariz, till April 1. Willis brags, "At least there will be no snow shoveling." (Hope they aren't in the area where there has been so much snow. I must look at a map. Wouldn't it be ironic if it is in the storm area? Hope it isn't.) * * * Such a nice letter from Ed and Gen Genrich, who spent some time with me when they were here and let me choose the pictures of their trip Pd like to see. Ichose Hawaii and learned something. Pineapples DO NOT grow on trees. Rather, they are more like a bush and the fruit grows low in the center of long, narrow, sharp- edged leaves. They took some pictures of me and one of Gen and I. They were very good. Thanks for sending them. I'd like to see ALL of your travel pictures, so come sometime soon and spend the hours necessary. Ed takes them at such wonderful angles and Gen is a very good commentator. * * * From Fred, Melvin Henderson's son, came such a nice letter. He remembers a visit here several years ago when Mrs. Gilles lived with me and she took him under her wing to entertain. Played Chinese chess with him by the hour. She was so fond of him and said she had never met a family so devoted and kind to each other. True, but a sadness has crept in and we all grieve together. And little Mrs. Gilles presents a sad case, but is being cared for here in a wonderful manner. * * * My annual letter from Florence Patterson Howard of Phoenix says her son-in-law and daughter and granddaughter are staying with her while they are having a new house built. Nadine, the daughter, teaches and her husband is in business with two others in Aviation Specialties at Falcon Field near Mesa. She expects to see Alice Ditsworth, who is wintering at Tempe, not far from Phoenix. And now, thanks to those who sent cards- HattieHieter; Frances Moe Arndorfer; Dorothy Campbell, Edmonds, Wash.; Milton and Nell Norton; Ruth Cook; Marie Hawcott; Lee and Bess Hopkins; Rev. and Mrs. Morz; the R. S. Blossoms; the Max Millers; and the finale (so far) Mrs. Edith Miller, sister of Mrs. Gilles who looks to me for news of her and bits of things about herself. * * * Christmas will be over I think before this reaches print, but I hope all of you had a marvelous time and Santa brought just what you wanted. * * * All the things we have been brought up to believe are being discounted of late. First was that horrible attack on Christ and the ugly suggestion, which, ^^^^^*^^** <l *' l| ^^ IIBr '^^^'* l * | i^^^*'^^* l <W^'W l »^P*»^^^^^«^i^»^P«»^^P^^^^B^W perfect way to spend your Christmas money - a portable RCA VICTOR TELEVISION SET! #:,!•:::;:•; 11:}.: RCA VICTOR SPORTABOUT TV *,j •$SSS?n " RCA V»CTOR"^ ^ABOUTTV SPORTABOUT TV ''""WID CIRCUIT DEPENDABILITY , 'R—Tn/n .. ^ m» ^ We have a wonderful selection of Portable RCA Victor TV sets in stock and pictured above . . . in all sizes, with a price range starting at $99.95 to $179.95 in Black and White.

Then Joan of Arc being burned at the stake has been attacked as false, and I hope it was. Lady Godiva with her body- covering hair was fully dressed, 'tis said, and I am glad, and the last tale is that Cinderella's slipper was fur, not glass. Well, that sounds reasonable - for who could walk in GLASS. Speaking of shoes - I am glad to see the pointed ones are OUT and I'll settle for the squared toes. I have just met a charming woman, Mrs. Martin Becker of Durt. It was a real pleasure meeting her and I know I will enjoy the cookies she left. Now for the end - Mini-skirt wearers are forming an organization called "Daughters of the Revelation." GRANDPARENTS Michelle Naig, 11-month-old daughter of the Danny Naig's, Cylinder, is a very fortunate young lady. She has three doting great-grandfathers and four loving great-grandmothers who are Mr. and Mrs. Oscar Knudson, Mrs. Elmer Naig, Mr. and Mrs. Harold Depue and Mr. and Mrs. Otto Haack.
