Hi Ladies

Earlene

It seems it's almost time to be greeting any of you personally again. Isn't that wonderful? We are really looking forward to Reunions and what they bring making new friends as well as clasping the hands of old ones.

Marsha and I are both tying up our loose ends at school, perhaps in different manners, but both are very anxious at this time of year to see it close for a rest.

She came home this week with proofs of her picture in her school year book. I just can't believe she has next year and then her free schooling is at an end. This is for what all parents strive to see them mature and develop into fine adults and good citizens. There can't help but be a little heart ache to accompany the joy at the close of this phase of their life. I realize I'm not telling any of you mothers, especially, anything you haven't already experienced yourselves if your children are out of school.

Elmer is very busy these days working in the yard and trying to get the Magazine out to you.

This past week he started pulling our traveling equipment out of storage and discussing his plans for it and our trip. So I know it can't be too far away.

Just recently we had nice but too short visit with the Shaffer's of Yoke and the Conleys of Etters both of Pa. It is always nice to have them drop in. We are expecting Mr. and Mrs. Chas. Idol and daughter, Verda J and from Winston-Salem N. Car., the first week in June. We are hoping to keep their Gal with us while they travel to N.Y. state. So you can see why School adjournment can't come too soon for us. All these pleasant dreams to anticipate.
