Kissner-Davis Nuptials came Sunday to spend the d.iv with Mrg Tnhn Thur"''e. DURING THE PAST COUPLE OF weeks, we have had the pleasure of visiting with more Algona people than at any time since we moved away. We also saw mote of our new home state, Florida, than ever before and we made the amazing discovery that there are other nice places besides Safasota! It was another case of the pests showing the hosts around * this time Helen and Curly Pratt • and believe me, it's a mighty good racket. - o - OUR GUESTS DIDN'T HAVE to twist our arms very long to get us to accept their invitation to go along on a trip to Key West. We took off Saturday morning and once we got past Fort Meyers, it was entirely new territory for Father and me. In the Everglades, we took one of those swamp trips in an air boat, piloted by a Seminole Indian, but we didn't bite on any of the chances to visit an Indian village. We enjoyed seeing acres and acres of pole beans (yes, Garb, we mentioned you), strawberries, and tomatoes near Homestead and although it made Father feel a little deflated over his 1/2 dozen tomato plants growing in our yard we did like seeing black soil that is more like good old Iowa dirt. - o THE KEYS ARE SIMPLY FABULOUS! You drive on the overseas highway for more than 100 miles with 41 major bridges connecting the islands and you have the blue Atlantic ocean on one side and the green Gulf of Mexico on the other. It's easy to see why so many Kossuth people spend the winter there. A highpoint of our trip was our stop at Islamarada where we saw the Bill Daus, Howard Hoenks, Hugo Meyers of Whittemore and Mrs. Dau's sister, Mrs. Sorenson of Atlantic. The fact that they all read this column gave me quite a lift for reader comment is one of the things I've missed most in the past two years. PERHAPS I'M TELLING TALES OUT of school, but you may be Interested to know that even such as Old Salt as Bill Dau gets seasick once in a while. He was out fishing the other day and had to make a hurried trip to hang his head over the side. There's a warning out to all Florida Keys fishermen that if they catch a grouper with an especially toothy smile, to contact Bill Dau immediately I - o THE GALS IN THE TRAILER court have been making the cutest washable cotton sun hats and when I admired them, Katherine Hoenck volunteered to make one for me. I even got to choose the color and width of the brim. I'm looking forward to receiving it for it should be just the thing to hold my hair on and keep the sun off my nose. - o WE STAYED OVERNIGHT AT KEY WEST - the town that has never had a frost and the record high temperature Is 98. If s an historic city, second oldest in Florida, and second only to Hawaii as the southernmost point in the United States. It's all the more remarkable when you realize that until the 1930*8 the only way it could be reached was by boat Shipbuilders constructed many of the old houses of mahogany and cypress, using wooden pegs Instead of nails, and they have ornate second- story balconies overlooking narrow one-way streets. There's a big U. S. Navy submarine base there, lots of commtircial fishing boats, Ernest Hemmingway's home, and the Little White House of President Truman's day. At breakfast in Key west, we met a couple who asked what part of Iowa 55 was in. Said they had a son working at WHO-TV in DesMoines. Garrett, I think his name is, and of course, they had heard of Jack Shelley. - o THE ONE THING THAT SHOULDN'T be looked for in Miami is rustic charm. I'd always heard of the many-storied, luxury hotels that line mile after mile of the ocean front there but I had to see them to believe it. Can't say I'd want to live there, or vacation there even if I had the money, but it was interesting nevertheless. We traveled 800 miles' over the weekend right on the dot, and there's still lots more in the state I want to see. I'm waiting for more of you to come down and show it to me. The weather is marvelous this year. Had a brief call from former Algonan, Jessie Turner, yesterday who said it is the nicest she can remember in her 12 years here. I also saw Lee Turner for the first time since he was little and met Jessie's first grandchild, a darling 11/2 year old boy. - o DURING THE WEEK OF FEB. 21 through 27, people having birthdays include Delores Winkel, Pat Studer, Ruth Bay, Scott Winkel, Lori Lynn Green, Ada Logan, Connie Hemmingsen, Ida Kelley, Ada Horton, Nancy Yungeberg, Bob Williams, BUI Watkins, Connie Utt, Millie Klamp, Randall Smith, J.

Didn't eat any of it, however, because I was always so full of seafood we ordered every night. And the recipe for the pie I sent out on that chain letter deal and didn't keep a copy. So this week let's try No-Bake Orange Balls. 1/2 cup butter 1 Ib. confectioner's sugar 1 Ib, vanilla wafers, crushed fine 1 4-oz. can frozen orange juice, thawed but indiluted 1/2 cup flake coconut Cream butter and sugar, Add cookie crumbs and orange juice; mix thoroughly.
