And we will sure be grateful, too, The two of us, yes, me and you, For many things have come our way To add of pleasure day by day. In health we've lived a happy year, At no time have we met with fear, We've taken on the daily grind With open hand and open mind. And often, when on pleasure bent, Results have made a good per cent. With weather, seasons just the type, Conditioning our living ripe. And through the many days and weeks Not once has working time sprung leaks. Yes, thankful we have right to be, The two of us, both you and me, That we have met with all the best, A year of health and work and rest. And thankful, too, we sure can 'be That we have homes in this city, For tops we find Algona, true, In which to live for me and you. It won't be long now unlil lax figuring time will be with us again, opening on December 1st. And by the looks of things w$ are going stuck for moi$ and h^her income taxation thj? time. There is a 6 2/3 per cent tax boost because on account of the tax rates, formerly ranging from 0.75 per cent to 3.75 per cent, now will be from 0.80 per cent to 4 per cent and this makes the increase of 6 2/3 per cent in tax rates. So, get ready broV ther, because on account of you're going to get stuck for more income tax this time, so tp speak. The weatherman sure pulled some good ones on us the past week. The first of the week we experienced snow and sleet and the streets became so icy that driving was misrable. And then on Sunday the weatherman handed us thawing weather ancl we almost felt as though spring was here. One day we took on an inch of snow-fall and the next day, after we dug up for having the walks shoveled, there was thaw ealore and today there's nary bit of snow. That weatherman sure pulls sort of tricks or ''•e:\ts on us, so it seems. But Jens P. Sorensen, 2nd district supervisor, and another good Dane, tells me that we can expect some real winter between now and Christmas, because on account of that seems to be a weather stunt that's pulled each year, with lovely fall weather way into December we can expect, and usually get the toughest of winter through the holiday, so to speak. And if I remember rightly I guess Jens is right. I am a member of the National Dunking Association, headquarters in Brownsville, Texas, and so is John Thuente because on account of it was recently that John and I had a clunking competitive session and he proved such an expert that I sent his name to the Donut Dunking Queen of Texas asking that he be signed up as a dunker member because of his expertness with dunking. He dunked a donut so perfectly that there wasn't even a touch of coffee on his finger nails. And there was not a drop of coffee fell from the donut between the cup and his lips. And since that dunk- mg session I have had several other gents named to get membership with the dunkers, ar.u that I am going to attend to. I have a list of a dozen coffee gulp* mg and donut dunking gems here in Algona who are entitled to membership in the National Dunking Association (because of their expertness in handling a dandy donut after it has been soaked in their Java, so to speak;.
