"I know the PERFECT spot for our vacation this year!" 'Children of Your Own!" - - 4 Fact or Fancy Hutchinson News Wednesday, Oct. 6, 1971 Page 12 Marks 86th Birthday at Dinner Instant Vacation Was Tremendous Idea By ERMA BOMBECK and BIL KEANE •xcerpttd from ID* book 'JUST WAIT TILL YOU HAVE CHILDREN OF YOUR OWN I' Copyright (e) 1*71 by Erma Bombeck and Bll Keant. Published by Doubleday a Company, Inc. My husband looked up from his paper one evening, clicked his fingers and said, "I've got a tremendous idea. Let's take an instant vacation." "A what?" we asked. "An instant vacation. One that is spontaneous. No preparation, no planning. Just go. We'll get up tomorrow morning, throw a few clothes in a paper bag and a few goodies in the cooler and take off to Pollution Lake. Would you all like that?" "We'd love it," they all shouted. "Good. Then it's settled," he said, snuggling down with his paper. "Oh, this is going to be exciting," I said. "We've never done anything impulsive before. One of you kids get on the phone and call the vet. Tell him we'll drop the dogs off on our way out of town tomorrow. I'll put a note in my mailbox to stop the mail and one in the milk- box to turn off the milkman for a few days. Oh, and I'd better get hold of my egg man." "Do you suppose Frank could take my paper route?" said my son. "And maybe take care of the hamster and the tropical fish?" "I suppose so," I mused. "Call him and when you're finished I have to use the phone to call Elsa and tell her I won't be able to drop those five hundred coat hangers for the Scouts off on Sunday. Maybe on the way out of town I'll drop them off at Fanny Flack's house. Oh, it is fun being impulsive." I grinned. Instant Vacation "Mom, what should I do about my dental appointment?" asked my daughter. "Call your friend Carol, and have her call the dentist for you first thing in the morning. Tell her it's important or we'll have to pay for the visit if we don't cancel. Listen, someone get in the car and run out for some mayonnaise for the potato salad. I'll get the cake in the oven while you're all taking baths. And don't forget to get the sleeping bags out of the attic and aired and the cooler off the shelf in the garage." "We have a turtle collection in it." "Then get them out." "Want me to unplug all the electrical stuff?" "Don't do that until just before we go to bed. Listen, while I am thinking of it, get your father's shirts. On the way out of town, we'll drop them off in the laundry slot. There's nothing worse than beginning a week without any shirt." "Mom, I was going to the library tomorrow to return my books." "No problem. We'll drop them off at the library on our way out of town. We have to deposit a check anyway and it's right down from our bank." "Okay, and what about someone to cut the grass?" "Oh, for crying out loud," interrupted their father. "How much can the grass grow in 48 hours? You are all making a big deal out of this. It's supposed to be spontan ..." "And it is a great idea," I said. "I hate calculated things. They never turn out. But an instant vacation. Snap it up with the laundry, kids. While it's drying, I'll get out and buy new underwear." "HOLD IT!," said their father. "I know I'm a fool for asking, but what do we need with new underwear?" "Can you imagine for a minute," I said, "that I would put this family in a car on the highways with raggy underwear? Instant vacation or not, I have my pride. Can't you see having an accident and a patrolman telling the press, 'The ones with the new cars with all the fancy gadgets are always the ones with safety pins in their shorts.' I'd die of humiliation. There are certain moments in a person's life when they should definitely have new underwear like when you get married, graduate, go into the Army or on a vacation. Maybe you want to be known in the ward as the 'multiple fracture with tacky underpinnings,' but not me. I'll be back in a jiffy. Do you want me to pick up film while I'm out? Sun lotion? A road map?" "What about the key to the house, Mom?" "We'll drop it off at Grandma's on the way to the post office. I wrote your sister, dear. You know how she calls the police when she calls and we don't answer. Have I forgotten anything?" "That is the most incredible question I have ever heard," said my husband. "Good, then carry on. I'm off to the beauty shop. Luckily Elaine could work me in tonight. You impulsive devil you," I said, tweaking my husband's cheek, "you'll make gypsies of us yet."

For yours will be the "ageless" look which women all over the world are achieving with the easy 2nd Debut European Beauty Ritual. The radiance of your new complexion, your blithe confident spirit, will fascinate young and mature men alike. For they know that true beauty really begins after 30. THE AGING PROCESS It is a physiological fact that in facial skin after age 30, the cells usually begin to shrink due to their inability to obtain and retain moisture. The fiber framework which supports the epidermis begins to break down. Your skin then begins to .dry out and "fall in". These depressed areas are the lines and wrinkles that cause concern to women who take pride in their appearance. It is by making moisture available to these areas in the right way that surface lines are first softened and then smoothed. This discovery by a famed doctor of physiology and his associates at their European clinic was considered so important, scientific journals in many coun­ tries heralded it as a major contribution to knowledge of skin care. UNIQUE PATENTED INGREDIENT The basis of this cosmetic face lift can be found in only one source in the United States — 2nd Debut with CEF. CEF — an ingredient so unique it is protected by U. S. Patent #3033755. It offers the assurance of proven, positive results without risk, pain, heavy expense, harsh lines or sagging facial contours later. Your 2nd Debut lift can be as permanent as you want it to be. A regular, easy application of 2nd Debut Lotion with CEF twice a day will guarantee that your young look will remain with you. WHAT IS CEF? Synthesized to replace a natural element of the skin, CEF's function is limited solely to restoring the skin's critical moisture balance.
