(id.) upper D»« Mem* wtdn M d«y. Jut y 2>, 1965 ^1$$ Arndorfer To Wed Aug. 28 \VHEN YOU'VE MOVED AWAY, you tend to read the home town papers more carefully than you evnr did l^efore. Though 1 know I can't possibly take advantage of thorn, I always read the ads and I even read all the Ixiard proceedings and legal notices. In one recent Upper Des Moines there was a real estate transfer item that pave me a session with nostalgia. It was the sale of the home where our family did so much living - the Grey House. Regardless of what the records at the courthouse say, part of that house will always belonr to me ! IT WASN'T ALWAYS KNOWN AS THE "Grey House". When I first became aware of it, my brother was living In it and he called it the "Ice Cube" because of its shape. Before that, part of it had been a stable which my father had moved to a new foundation and remodeled. When we were married, the brother was transferred temporarily so we had a chance to rent i', 'xit we thought $25 a month, furnished, was a little steep. Nevertheless, we decided to live it up and a few months later we had a chance to buy it. WHILE WE WERE USING SOMEBODY else's furniture, we had time to leisurely select our own tilings. Eacli Saturday night we'd go to the store and dicker and dream. The day when all our new furniture was finally in place still stajuls out In my memory as a red letter one. Never before or since has a house looked so elegant to me 1 Then loo, while we lived in it, never again was it quite so umblemished for it wasn't too much later that we started bringing those bundles home from Kossuth hospital. Life in the house Iwcame less orderly, but infinitely more interesting. - o - AS THE FAMILY GREW, SO did Uie house. When our second heir became apparent, we needed more room so the house acquired a sizeable extension which made the "Ice Cube" title no longer appropriate. When we didn't get to bring the baby home after all, the space wasn't so badly needed and it remained unfurnished for a while. For a long time it was referred to as the "new room" and It was mighty handy for birthday parties and rainy day tricycle rides, for by that time Mary Ann had arrived to join her brother. - o - WHEN JEAN WAS BORN the house became llved-in at all corners. We not only used the new extension, we had an extension put on the loan to pay for the hospital and special nursing needed to keep her alive. Mamma started writing a column and Father built bookcases and a desk for her, and it wasn't long until it became necessary^ to add another appendage to the house - a back porch which was handy to store bikes and snow boots.and to lay out the tomatoes while they were ripening. - o - MEANWHILE, BILL HAD PUNCHED a hole in the living room wall with a broomstick horse he was riding and thatj among other things, necessitated new plaster, and while i% were at it, enlarged living room windows. The heating system evolved from hand-fired coal furnace, to automatic oil and then gas, we had new kitchen cupboards built, and that most blessed of invention I wish I had here - a garbage disposal. We saw the hand-writing on the wall for the place had juvenile artwork all over and the least of my troubles was* having a house with a lived-in look. But the day I discovered a small sprout of corn growing out of a moist crack in the bathroom floor, really shook me. We had new linoleum shortly afterward I - o - THE "GREY HOUSE" TITLE came from a column I fancied was satire, which I wrote after Jacqueline Kennedy had taken the nation on a TV tour of the restored White House. I subsequently sold it to a magazine, but by the time it appeared we had sold the Grey House, sold, gave away, or hauled to the dump, twenty-one years of accumulated furnishings, and moved to Florida. Even though there was a sizeable check with the article, I wept when 1 received it. - o - WHAT WITH ALL THE EXTENSIONS and the hard times, we never got the Grey House paid for until we sold it, but it did finance our move to Florida. We were never quite happy here until we acquired a place of our own and proceeds from the Grey House had a part in that, too. We love our new home and it is quite a bit nicer than the Grey House was when we lived in it and we're working and planning to improve it. But we left a big part of our lives in the Grey House. - o - DURING THE WEEK OF JULY 25 through 31, people having birthdays include Dorothy Kraft, Tom Hutchinson, Vern McClure, David Merryman, Bunny Richardson, Michael Stillman, Marne Ruth Parrott, Karen Kae Zeigler, Nancy Muckey Shipler, Bertha Thuente, Ann Marie Wilson, Marge Baker, Ted Chrischilles, Bette Hoover, Joe Lynch, Jr., Edith Buchanan, John Groen, Janet Andreasen, Byron Richardson, Carl Hanson, Helen Conn, Mike Studer, Orville Wicks, Cheryl Rusk, Steven Carlson, Joseph Bradley, Andy Gotten, J.
