Howard and Dorlyne live in Long Beach which is about 33 miles from us, so we get to see them 1 often; Howard teaches science in Long Beach, They bought a duplex last spring and are beginning toj put 1 down five in is small but cbmfortabli home roots. We moved to California in August of '54.. We temporarily settled in Anaheim' where Geneieve taught and Ed worked in a TV and radio department of an appliance store. When we came to Calfornia we had in mind the purchase of a motel or apartment house but wound up with a trailer park. We took possession May 1, 1955. We are happy that we changed our minds for a trailer i>ark is a lot of fun and always interesting. Our park is in Duarte, about ten miles east of Pasadena. We haye. 26 trailer spaces and two houses. One house is rental and the house we —four rooms and bath The par'k is small but well located and is very pretty with many, many shade, and fruit 'tree's, flowers and . shrubs. The San Gabrie mountains rise directly behint us, always an inspiring view Most of our tenants are the permanent type—many have been here for years. Trailer dwellers are friendly, congenial, helpfu and above all know how to ge along with their neighbors. EC has a TV and radio shop here in the park so he squeezes in.some work oft the sjde after all; 30 odd years of it had become a well established habit. The school room still has an attraction for Genevieve and so she has done some substitute teaching. * * » " Jean Wadsworlh inquires from Denver, Colo., "Frozen up back there?"

The outline of Iowa with Davenport marked with ,*a star is ,clever. Davenport is st star town-city I should say. The Millers regreted missing being with the Algona grandchildren.

Her mind is good, fortunately, and she reads with a reading glass and listens to the radio." . * • *- » I left home Decemfcet 19 fe* Iowa City and opened "a few gifts' that came early.

Also a card announcing a two- year's- subscription to Capper's Magazine, but no name of the donor. Please step • forward so I can say "Thahks" to, you too. And thus, Santa Claus stepped into his sleigh, cracked the whip ,OVer Dancer and Prnnror and the *6ther six reindeer and we won't pe seeing him again, for three hundred and fifty-three days.
