And Ken Strahor,h told m'e that now since there was snow he put -on his overshoes back ' and forth to the stotte instead of carrying 'ni while expecting snow and winter ,condltipris, so to Speak. An'd *'isii|cV Sunday I've mei with 1 rnl'ny Agents who admitted that 'they were wearing , winter underwear, had been wearing it for .wefks, and now that winter is hefe';'they iare happy and fe'el the" mdre camfoftable'- and- hot aljvayl'-suffering from thermometer higher reading because of the r .heavier' under duds, So to sp'eak-f Arid Werner Struedker admitted, that he always felt the more 1 appreciative if we were having winter or summer weather : in regular output instead or the two changing back and forth and giving us- summer weather in November or zero weather in April, so to speak. So he's happy that winter came. Personally, I don't give a hang about, the seasonal weather or unseasonal weather , 'approaches. }t it snows iri September I woudn't be* caUse on account of I have, my sidewalks; shoveled, so to speak. However, I did 1 get a-kick out of the winter which arrived on Sunday becalise on account of I like the color of snow and my un- raked lawn just looks sweet and swell under the snowfall, so to speak. Iv'ti was MoViday at supper lime (yes t J al\yays_call it supper, al-' though most people speak of ft as ' dinner time) that I, was enjoying a pheasant breast and did it ' ever taste swell? And then all at .once .my false teeth: bit into' a bullet and that wasn't so good, but' I sure didn't split the bullet or smash it. Evidently a bullet is top . tough for teeih punching. ' 'Did this ever happen to you? And following check' ing of the swell meaty portion we found no mote bullets. But r: suppose thisVlsisowethhig that cobld, happefl fb-ojlfiafs wneri this pheasant is downed with shot. It was a : pheasaht tHlt • Gene, Zeri- der downed^ one,:,GUtf Of' thrfe, and he told me/tKat;;the, ftext 'time' he gave us a pheasant which good aiming and shooting 'had downed he'd have the bird X-rayed before he brought it in. But he needn't do that, nor does any other hunter -who makes us a present of a pheasant; We love pheasant (enough and -to the.-ek^ tent thdt a bullet is no trouble at all. : . . —o— Do you ever do, crossword pUfczles?) Well, it's a cinch' that a 16t?;of-;ua do because on account of: theVDes Moines Register § rjnts a crossword, puzzle every unday and I admit that I put in time, trying to solve it. I get out the dictionary and in searching fbr definitions I learn new words by the dozen and my vocabulary is becoming quite extensive, so to speak. But I do know this, that there are. a lot of Kossuth county readers Who also put in time on the crossword puzzle. A. friend ; of mMe,'; a printer Un Des Moines,'told jm^ v that out of 70,000 -entries one i'Week there was not ' One, who solved the puzzle% And I am told that three were 'at least 1200 entries ' from Kossuth county. -Just proved that many folks. get' a kick out of battling the crossword puzzle, so to speak. At any rate 1 have found that my vocabulary has grown, fi'om leaps' and boundi since I undertook searching a crossword solution. And it also helps a person's spelling, as well as setting out word meanings and placements. Yes, working on crossword puzzles proves another educational',angle. You meet up with ; many new words, .their meaning and their spelling, so to speak. Work crosswords : — it's educational and a Happy way of spending time. ISTEED ' PRINTING?
