It's not that there isn't anything going on around herp - it is that there is so much excitement it's difficult to concrnti .!(<•. Our family arrived Monda\ and we've l*>on IMVHIR .1 ;'i.ui'l tune getting rearq\iainted and seeing the sights.

You'd think, wouldn't \ou, that with all this opportunity, I should 1* able to mother-in-law in the best (or worst) tradition but I'm finding it oxtremeh difficult. Rose isn't setting any example at all in U'lng ornei•> and Kathie persists in being just as sweet as I romeinl»pr liei and I'm having an awful time finding something to criticize. However, we are finding it still a problem of what to c;dl your mother- in-law that won't be too formal and still Iw comfortable. When the day comes that Kathie can call me Grandma, we'll have it all solved. A LOT HAS HAPPENED TO OUR son, Hill, since we saw him last almost two years aijo. During that time he became of voting age, a married man, a college graduate, an employe*' .UK! an apartment renter. All this should make him pretty grown up.

IN AN AP STONY RECENTLY was the tale of a boy in Ohio wli<i has .1 c'lio-Aiii: . unt ''tappers strine tneasurins.', over 7G feet. He sc''in«"l t<> think this is some sort of a record but out Jean has him beat. Her cum chain is over 100 feet and I mention it', because several Ali;onans had a part in its construction. The fli.un, ,ill Doublemint wrappers, was started as a soil nf liiendship link when she moved away from Algona. The Iowa kids saved '.'.rappers foi her there and after we moved, mailed them to her. Several times envelopes arrived whose only contents wore <oim wrappers and a couple of times there was oveidue postage to pay on them. When the word got around here, het nc•.'. friends saved wrappers for her. Jean hasn't worked on tl\c chain for about a year now, but the Ohio boy's i-liaiii m;n serve as a new incentive. - o - AS ENAMORED AS I AM WITH Florida living, I do get to taking things for r.ranted and it takes visitors to show around to make the territory take on new glamour. Then, too, visitors can always think of something I haven't seen so they show rne. Also at the rate things are developing around here, if you haven't taken a tour for a couple of months there's sure to be something that has sprung up meanwhile, I don't like to sound like the Chamlier of Commerce (unless I'm paid for it) but you should see the recently completed, municipally owned Marina Mar which used to be the city pier. The island was all pumped up out of the bay and is especially beautiful at night with the lights on all the fabulous boats docked there. Come on down and see for yourselves even if you were here just last winter I - o - OUR VISITORS BROUGHT SOME additional pictures of the wedding we missed last December. We thoroughly enjoyed all of them but I was particularly interested in a color shot of the Algona Presbyterian church sanctuary. I've seen quite a few riicp churches since leaving Iowa, but I truly believe none is as beautiful as my Algona church. - o - ONE OF THE FEW THINGS that casts a shadow on our life here is the fact that we must miss out on so many important milestones in the lives of our loved ones and watch the people we knew as babies graduate and get married. We were reminded of this recently when we received an invitation to the wedding of Mary Bradley to our nephew, Denny Waller. I never knew Mary well but Denny was always one of my favorite kids. A long life and a happy one is my wish for them. - o - OTHER MAIL RECENTLY included a letter from Alice Zeigler Gaines of Pine Lawn, Mo., who sent at my request a brochure of their baseball camp. I needed it for two avid baseball friends of mine who have about worn the catalogue out looking at it and plan to attend next year. We enjoyed a note from Faye Jones and was glad to hear that she and Pete, the janitor at the church, still follow the column. We had a good letter from Nell Larson and we're looking forward to seeing them again next fall. We're NIEIY LMftl BY RUTH SHIERK MR. AND MRS.
