Sal B 12 MEUBdl KOtHAl DEPOSIT INSUB«NC( CORPORAIION By Marge Sissulak by Marge Sissulak Santa's arrival in Forest Park Saturday was a real reminder that Christmas is just "around the corner". There's been a tnad rush at the shop with the usual search for the "perfect" gift for m< in, who loves hand painted china; for dad, who collects shaving mugs or beer stelps; for my aunt win loves old jewelry, etc. It's great fun helping tha eager shoppers, especially the youngsters. They have a limited budget and it's surprising to them to b« a.ilc to ijjrchasa a gift in an antique shop. Keep coming "kids" You're great! A reminder to all my customers w!io are waiting for a card trom is concerning an estate sale we were supposed to conduct before Christmas - There's serious illness in their family so there's been a delay. We'll keep you posted. My Christmas Wish: That my sons and the sons of all parents everywhere could be honr 1 from • W.nam, Gsrmany, Korea or wherever they may bs. God bless them all and send thorn hom« safely to us real soon. As usual, I haven't started m/ Christmas shopping so I'll be rushing around at the last minute. Too bad my friends aren't "nuts". I could da rny shopping in my own shop..Nothing that easy could happen torn- 1 . I was reading one of my old books of poetry and ran across a poem by Edgar A. Guest that I'd like to share with you. it's called The Junk Box MJ father often used to say: "Mj 1 boy don't throw a thing away, You'll find i use for It someday. So in a box he stored up things. Bant nails, old washers, pipes and rings. And jolts & nits & rusty springs. Oyspite each blemish & each flaw, Sornr- use for everything he saw. With things material, this was law. Aid often when he'd w-irk to do, Hi.- searched the junk box through and through And found old stuff a? b 'ood as new. Aud I have often nought since then, That father did the same w.'th men, HL> knew he'd need their help again. It seems to me he understood, That nii-'ii, as well asiro-i & wood. May broken be and still be gooJ. Despite the visas he'd display, II ' never threw -i man awiy, But kept him for wither day. A ,iumaji junk box is this earth, And into it we're tossed at blrtli, T> wait the -Jay we'll be of worth. Though bent and twisted, weak of will, And full of flaw, 1 ; and lacking skill, Som*! service each can render still. (Think about it) READ The REVIEW
