Florence and Albert came to Sioux Falls, S. D. as soon as they had word of their son's accident, and were in Algona briefly. Florence wants to come back to Algona lo live. She wants to be near her family and we are hoping Albert can be persuaded to move back. They could spend a couple of months in Monrovia during the cold weather Albert hates, then be here to enjoy their children and grandchildren and their many friends. Life is short at : the most and we have so little time to be with our loved ones. It seems logical to want to be as close together as possible -during the years we have.

A note from Estelle Little said Sherm had wanted to see the 49'ers football game and for 12 years they have had the same seats. After rushing home from Iowa, it rained the day of the game and they didn't get to see it. * * * Anyone watching a car owner in this neighborhood several months ago might think she was off her rocker.

He said he remembered that the morning always began with a prayer, so when he was advanced to the next room he told the teacher she had forgotten prayers, Much to his surprise, the teacher replied brusquely, "Do your praying at home." * * * How good it was to hear old "friends" on WHO recently, MC'd by Edgar Bergen and his incomparable Charley.

But it didn't interest me enough to watch to the finish, but I will assume Tony and his wife lived "happily ever after" but I couldn't figure out what it was all about. No wonder our vegetable soup was extra good the other night. The carrots were from the Kyle Keith garden I I was surprised and pleased to have a call from Jack Long of Cedar Rapids one day last week. He had come on business and had remained over night. Hazel Lusby, Lizzie Post and I will never forget the good times his father and wife Blanche showed us the many times we were in Davenport. I don't believe I mentioned that the new Bettendorf bridge is located in a place we remember exactly and close to where we were at friends of the Longs. These friends had a wonderful view across the river from high ground, across to Illinois, just the sort of place we would like to have lived. That ol' Mississippi is a siren - it's been dubbed "Old Man River" but to us it represents charm that is not implied by that name. True, "it just keeps rollin' along." * * * vt Donald Kaul mentioned "bund- ling" in his column, but that was long before his day or mine, but it proves we know our Colonial history, and as I have said before, each era has a new word for the same things - courting, wooing, spooning, which was most popular in my day, followed closely by fussing which led to necking and now it's "making out" which leaves me a little baffled. By inference in some article I have read, it goes farther than the innocent love-making words of the former eras. Anyhow, so long as earth is inhabited by men and women, there willbe"twosing"- no matter what else -it may be called, Poor old Adam and Eve with no one to" choose from! * .* * The end of my novel and pretty calendar from the Algona Greenhouse is fast drawing to an end. November picture's a wall spice jug, a jug of molasses, two fruit jars, a huge spoon and a lovely bouquet of fall flowers. December pictures an oldfashioned • doll and doll bed, a little chair, a book and bouquet of carnations. I was Up town today and the stores are gay with Santas and Christmas things, which will be abundantly added to ere long. * * * I saw a picture of the newErwin Wiltgen baby daughter today. A sweet little mite, as yet unnamed. I suggested Mary, but Erwin said there were already so many in the family, so I said "Why not Laura? That's my first name. It's old fashioned but I like it. I am pro- bably one person in at least 50 who is completely satisfied with my name. Our little Katherin Kierulff, Til bet anything, will be Katie. Well, that's 0. K. with me. Katie Gilmore is a cute little girl and I am sure there are many more Katies. There's Katie Anderson, too. *- * * A number of years ago I was in University Hospitals at Iowa City. A young doctor came along and asked "What is your name f I said "Cady." He was so disgusted and said sarcastically, "Well, Katie what T I took him down a peg or two by saying my name is Evelyn C-A-D-Y." "Oh," he replied, all the starch taken out of that smarty voice. Other names for the Wiltgen infant which occurred to me were Ellen or Wanda. Erwin says his wife has the privilege of naming this baby as he named the son. He said there were so many E's in the family - his wife, himself and Eric, so he wasn't sold on another E. I also favor Wanda. I like names with the same letters - Wanda Wiltgen -1 think that would be cute. The second name is to be Louise. * * * I know a family of J's. The mother Thelma is the only one minus a J. There is John Sr., Julie, Jean, John Jr., Jim, Joe and Jeri Jo - three boys and three girls to keep track of initialed garments I Wednesday, Nov. 23, 1966 AJgona (fa.) Upper DM MdlAfHl I am asking for a nice day tomorrow as I plan to see the matinee "My Fair Lady." Rain, rain, go away I Snow and cold, too! * + * This is surely descriptive "Sky clearing its throat with thunder." And a good one for hunters-"Better red than dead."
