8-Algena (la.) Upp*r tot thuriday, March I, )966 PUTTING OFF THINGS .UNTIL tomorrow is so prevalent that it is a sort of universal vice. For some time now, I've been advocating a mutual aid organization for putter-offers called Procrastinators Anonymous patterned, of course, on Alcoholics Anonymous and I consider myself a charter member, Evidently this has finally taken hold for whoever thinks up special days and weeks has designated March 7 through 12 this year as National Procrastination week 1 - o- I ALWAYS MEANT TO ORGANIZE Procrastinators Anonymous more formally, but I run Into a big difficulty -1 keep putting it off I However, I realize that once you are a procrastinator you are always a procrastinator and it takes only a little put-off to get us off the wagon. - o - THE WORD TO BE WARY OF if you are a procrastinator is "tomorrow." That's always the day we are going to clean the closets, write the letters, go on a diet, and do the millions of other things we are constantly putting off. A loyal Procrastinators Anonymous member realizes that tomorrow never comes. The only day that counts is today and we have to take them one at a time. - o- I'VE LONG ADVOCATED THAT P. A. should have some sort of hook-up with the dental societies, for is there anything that is easier to put off than going to the dentist ? Especially if the tooth doesn't actually ache. Evidently this has taken hold because those reminders to have your six months check-up come around pretty often. However, dental office secretaries haven't always been converted for once in Algona, an office girl sent out the reminders 0. K., but she forgot to put the stamps on so the patients had to pay the postage on the dental reminders I - o - THERE IS ALSO STILL SOME work to be done by an anti- procrastlnatlng society in the realm of letter writing. A thank- you note can be put off until the giver almost forgets what kind of a present he sent. And how many times have you longed for a. chat with an old friend but failed to write more than a hastily scrawled note on a Christmas card, saying, "I'll write more later"? - o- PAYING BILLS IS EASY TO PROCRASTINATE. It may be hard to meet our larger obligations, but we are usually forced to remember them or else get our lights turned off or the TV repossessed, it's those $1.14 items we charged last summer at the drug store when we were out of change that keep us working at procrastination. - o- PUTTING OFF THE MENDING is one of the best jobs of procrastination that I do. It's true that a stitch in time saves nine, but most of the time I'd rather take the nine if I just don't have to get out the needle right now. Cleaning the cupboards is an easy job to put off - you can always keep the doors shut - and so is the ironing. ••••;,.". ••'»•'••' " ; ' -' - o- TV COMMERCIALS HAVE GONE OVER to the side of the procrastinators, it seems to me. There are special toothpastes that can be used, "If you can't brush after every meal." If they were really Procrastinator Anonymous orientated they'd say, "Brush after every meal - or else I" And those soaps and deodorants that keep you more than "half safe" if you skip a bath. This philosophy Is dangerous to the male half of the population because although the commercials mean that you might skip a daily bath now and then, the guys get to thinking if they use the deodorant they can skip that bath they used to take every three weeks I - o- KIND WORDS AND THOUGHTFUL DEEDS also can be put off, sometimes until it is too late. I blush for shame at the times my heart has gone out in sympathy to someone and I failed to express it with so little as a word. Or the times I have admired a job well done, and didn't say so, the thanks I could have uttered and the occasions when I could have, with very little trouble to myself, cheered somebody when he needed it. - o - ALL TOO FREQUENTLY, INCIDENTS occur in the lives of all of us that emphasize again that our stay on this planet Is Indeed temporary and that life is too short to put off our better impulses. And living is far too full of opportunities for worthwhile deeds to leave room for the petty and mean thoughts and actions which even we veteran procrastinators don't put off. - o- I HAD SUCH A GOOD VISIT with Doc and Maude Dorweiler when they spent the afternoon here Tuesday. One of the things they were going to do while in Florida was to visit their Christmas card at Bonita Springs I There's a good story connected with that and I'll tell it to you later. Yesterday I was so disappointed to miss a call from two of my aunts and uncles from West Union and Suraner. I had left the house at 3;10 and was back at 4. They were here at 3:20. This morning, Mrs, Quentin Bjustrom phoned. They are taking a leisurely tour of Florida in their camper. They had disposed of their livestock before leaving Algona and thus don't have to worry about chores. They expect to return about April 1. - o- OTHER NEWS OF KOSSUTH FOLKS currently in Florida came from Nell Larson, The Gordon Oggs, now of Hartley are Again at Clearwater and are fine. Nell was to see the Harold Gilmores soon and had seen the Ed Wolcotts who are at St. Pete. The Wolcotts and the Willis Cottons had been to the Iowa club meeting recently and Mrs. Cotton had a fall coming out of the Marina but Nell hadn't heard any more about it. - o ONE THING I DON'T WANT TO procrastinate is to say happy birthday during the week of Feb. 27 through March 5 to Dick Robinson, Evelyn Ferguson, William Pitcher, Dorothea Moulton.
