Remember? They also went to the airport to see the big planes come and go, another in teresting sight. I've seen them at Glendale, Calif. • * I've never heard a parakeet talk and if I didn't know Elmer Kelley is an honest man I wouldn't believe his bird Pedo has a 100 word vocabulary. Of course I could pin him down to an actual count, but I won't. I'll accept his word. "Pedro" is ailing a> little and Elmer wonders how long the pet will survive. He told me one of the family said one day, "Pass the pickles." and "Pedo" took up the refrain, over and over "Pass the pickles, pass the pickles." « t * Reminders of my childhood when mother did the same thing- wor(ted on costumes for my school programs, even as Christine McCuilough and "Dodie" Potter, the first on a flower cos-, iume, the latter on a skeleton costume for the "Tom Sawyer" play given this week at the Lucia Wallace school.
