The birthdays were those of Lyndon Fowler and Bret Meyer, Jason Fowler and Edna Fowler. Mr. and Mrs. Edgar Meyer of Algona were among those attending. How sorry I am to have to again mention the death of a friend - Rosetta Johannsen, who died June 27, just a week after her 50th wedding anniversary observance. And what a brave woman she was - never mentioning an ailment she knew was serious - not even confiding in her husband, Henry. My deepest sympathy to him and her relatives. Marg Dahl, Lizzie Post and I made a trip to Mason City, June 27. A pleasant day, but we drove home in heavy rain. It is amazing how many Algonans we saw. First, Mrs. Clarence Wiltgen, then Leona Lindqu»st with whom we had a nice chat, then there was Mary Olson, her daughter, Mrs. Tom Sampson and Mrs. Jake Godden. On South Federal we saw Lizzie's sister- in-law, Mrs. Walt Post, son Kenneth and his wife. They are going to Denver soon to visit with relatives but Walt, who isn't too well, will not accompany them. Ken is employed with a pharmaceutical company. Gosh - svhat a difference the years make. When I was a girl there was always a big celebration. Once on State street, a few times at the fair grounds and others, I recall, were going to Bancroft, Emmetsburg and Clear Lake. I wouldn't repeat the program for all the tea in China! But it was fun then. Celebrations seem to have gone the way of the Model T, etc. Enroute home from Mason City we stopped in front of Margaret Hofmaster's house she bought from the Mrs. L. C. Copp estate. She has enclosed a part of the porch to add to her living room, added an iron railing to the steps and an iron prop it has greatly improved the place and if it hadn't been raining, we'd have gone in. * * * Through Maggie Haubach, a resident here, I received some literature sent to her with the request that she pass it on to me. It was mostly poetry of an uplifting nature. She is in a rest home and has arthritis badly, she said. I never really knew her but she has seldom failed to send me Christmas greetings and she says she enjoys my Tid- bits, which of course pleases me. Thank you, Mrs. Lillian Mathison. * * * Casper Thilges was visited this morning by three of his nieces and their father, Chris Fields. The nieces are Sister Marguerite, Sister De Chantal and Sister Carla, all of Techy, HI., and the Convent of the Holy Spirit. I asked to meet them and they are charming, full of merriment and I enjoyed the visit. I told them I had a dream the other night that Casper was all dressed up and looked so sprucy and had invited me to dance. I had accepted - but the dream ended before we got on the floor. I told him about it. He chuckled and then said wistfully, "I wish I could." I wish so , too, Casper, though >:mr eleven years of invalidism is shorter than mine. * * * Having read about Mrs. Fairie Kuhn's early potatoes but no peas, Mrs. John Schimmel called me the other day to tell me she has had peas from her garden, the first picked June 20. * * * Mrs. Grace Newville is a resident here now and celebrated her 84th birthday June 30. Mrs. E. J. Evers and her mother, Mrs. Helen Johnson, brought cake and ice cream to serve the women on Mrs. Newville's floor. * * * Sign over nylon stocking display - "For contented calves.' * * * >••> Just to look at the card jfent from Luzern by the John Kene- ficks makes one feel cooler on a hot day. Snow-capped mountains, beautiful lake, and quaint buildings. A part of Audra's message said, "This is a beautiful city on the lake. Sat on a bench near it today and watched the boats and swans.'' * * * Also had a card from Dorris Long Pitcher. She says, "Iowa was so lush and green. Here we are dry and lawns look like late August. I just think Algona is the nicest town." I agree with her heartily. The Matt Streit's clock, which must be rather close to the phone, and my watch are synchronized - it struck the hour right on the time my watch keeps, on a recent call.
