EARLENE

HI LADIES!

Greetings on a snowy wintery day! We've been dismissed early today because of it, so I've been given an opportunity to spend some time with you.

Those new snow tread tires that I insisted my husband buy have surely come in handy with all this snow we've had this Winter.

It certainly has made for beautiful scenery but Oh, the poor folks who have to drive every day to work! I can walk to school but our church takes us 'out' over the week-ends. The Sundays which were too bad we didn't have services. Our church members' homes are so scattered that it would mean a hardship for them too.

Elmer bought me a bird feeder which we have hanging on a little peach tree several yards from the kitchen window. It has given not only enjoyable meals to the birds but our household a lot of pleasure. We have been trying to invite the cardinals, which we've seen in another yard some distance away, by using a large amount of sunflower seed. As yet we haven't been too successful, but we haven't given up hopes since we haven't had the feeder too long. We do have Juncos and Sparrows (along with the Starlings.)

It was so nice to be remembered by many of you nice folks who sent us Christmas Cards this Happy Season. We are sorry that it is impossible for us to acknowledge each one personally. We do appreciate them, and many thanks!
