Morch 21, 1968 " ^ InWIIttlltlHIItHIHIKItNIHIIIHIIWIHtHllimtHIHI Evelyn nniitniinitmniiiitfiitHHiiiHiiiii Miss Kenyon Of Algona To Wed This Summer At the nurses' station on the flfst floor is a cupboard which is kept locked and only the R.N.s ate permitted to open it. Recently, one of the R.N.s who was comparatively new here had oc- cation to open the cupboard. One shelf was labeled, "Death Book and Spirits". The humor of the situation was so great she told a few of us about it and we had the best laugh. Now "death book" needs no explanation as it is a record of the deceased, but "spirits" 1 will explain covers liquors prescribed by the doctors for certain patients and consists of wines, whiskies and such. In fact, in a certain place in my room I have a bottle of rye, sealed, and kept just in case the time might come when 1 need "spirits", too. It was purchased for my mother under orders of Dr. Cretzmeyer and was beneficial. This is half of the second bottle she required, and since I am not a "party gal", this will remain undisturbed. I hope I never need to use it. So don't rush to call on me, you men folks, who like a nip now and then. The bottle remains SEALED and don't try to fool me with pretended ailments I - o Speaking of drinks - I had' a card from Lizzie Post a few days ago showing the Busch Bavarian Pavilion and lagoon with its pleasure boats, built near Los Angeles. She had taken a ride on the lagoon, said the temperature was 80-85 and when she comes home depends on her sister, Tracy Kelley, who went with her to visit their sisters Helen Zittrltsch at Gardena and Kate McMurray of Glendale. I am amazed Tracy has been content to stay away from home so long. That was one of Lizzie's worries - that Tracy would want to come home too soon. - o - Pearl Phillips was the first to report seeing a robin, March 9. Hazel Burns was second and I'll bet it was the same bird. They live in the same general vicinity - not far from the fairgrounds. A day or two later, Thelma Sires reported having seen three in her back yard. Isn't this the most wonderful and unusual winter you ever experienced ? Would that all were like it, and for moisture, gentle, ground-soaking rains which are said to be needed. - o I came so close to winning the 5th race Monday I nearly had heart failure ] Number 9 was a close second until the very end, then dropped back to 3rd and I don't remember the winning number, but 9 stood a very good chance. - o - For heaven's sake, HOW many more times must that TV cable thing raise its head ? In a way it doesn't matter to me for I am one who WILL NOT pay one red cent toward it. For those who want it, ifs O.K. with me, but there are so few programs I care for, Pll spend my money on other things. Of course, I know it is optional, and I am certainly willing to cooperate with those who are in favor of it. one of the guests, Pve been told, but since I was less than a year old, I can't remember the others. I only know about the whole affair from mother. Of course, each motiler took her off-spring's high-chair. I can remember how grown up I felt when my high-chair was lowered to a youth's height. They tell me I was trained to excuse myself when I had finished eating, but I got a little muddled and always said "Scuse a please me." - o - Cats have nine lives they say. I don't know how many I have, but Pve used up a few. The greatest hazard was going down cellar with a lighted lamp and since I seldom went there, had not been told the bottom step was out and Dad hand't gotten around to fixing it. When you step on something that isn't there, ifs a queer sensation, but I managed to keep my balance, whirled around on one foot, landed sitting in the conveniently close coal hod, still holding the lamp like the Goddess of Liberty, and unhurt except for a twinge in my right ankle. With hours or practice, I couldn't do it again 1 - o Then another time, a board Governing half of the unused cistern outside, broke when I was standing on it to look through the dining room window opposite to see how I could get to goal, and down I went into the other half of the cistern in the cellar. Fortunately it hadn't been used for some time. Grandma called from her bedroom window, "Where are you? Did you fall out of the upstairs window?" "No", I yelled back, "Pm in the cistern." She and mother came to help me free myself from cobwebs. - o- ACTION But enough of accidents. Pm still here after all those years, and I hope I never have more spills. Pd probably break in a thousand pieces as they say arthritis makes bones become more brittle than normal. I'll cross my fingers and hope for good luck. Well, short legs kept me from being a tree climber which was probably a good thing, and a relief to my parents. - o Another sign of spring. Ahuge night crawler was seen by Mrs. John Schimmel sticking his head out of the ground to be immediately pounced upon by a bird who pulled and pulled to devour him. I am surprised the worm was out. I was under the impression it took dampness to make them come to the surface, and there surely has been little of that to lure him. In fact, everybody wants rain. Remember that old radio routine of "Amos and Andy" and one part of the routine was "The early bird gets the worm." Then some more dialogue and "Who wants to be a worm" - Pve forgotten the between lines, but it drew a big laugh. - o - - o - Earl Rich accuses me of having said something in this column about him feeding the birds. I don't recall it, but it is possible for during the winter once in awhile the feeder gets empty not often, for it is well looked after. Before we had the feeders, Mrs. Gilles used to take the spare food we didn't want, bread, cake, cookies, and she called it "feeding the chickens" as she had been used to having a small flock at her home in Swea City. When she was no longer able, Henry Hartwell took over, but the little chore became less and less as the feeders were then put up. It has been a long time since Earl has done the Job (if ever, for I don't recall asking him). But 11 I did, is there any reason why he should be made fun of or "kidded" about it ? Wouldn't YOU do a little chore like that ? » o March 14-The birthday anniversary of Zada Branson, long deceased. She was one year old and tier mother had Invited a few mothers and their infants to celebrate the day. it was, my flret social activity, and I'd give A tot it pictures of us had been tftkao, Lucille Crow was I feel like a mermaid. I was in the new tub this morning. It is really quite a deal. The seat is level with the tub side, then when one sits on it and swings around to be lengthwise in the tub, water is run, the seat goes down, the water is run to whatever level you want, then when the bathing is over, the seat comes up to tub top level, and there you are. It reminds me of the car Evalyn McDougall had. We'd ride backward a few inches, raise it a few if wanted and go foward, as we were both "shorties." We were like a couple of kids. - o - With so many travelers in this vicinity, how about this Patient to doctor, "How many major European cities in 21 days am I good for f ISU Awards To Two Students In This Area Iowa State University has announced the names of 465 outstanding high school students who will be admitted "With Recognition and Award" next fall.
