EARLENE

Hi Folks! As I write this, it is a rainy, dreary Sunday afternoon outdoors, but with your kindnesses and interests in continuing the work of the magazine it makes me feel all warm and happy.

Our holidays were as delightful as it could be without our Elmer not being here to share it. Life has to go on and he wasn't one to want us to lament. With this in mind and the Good Man's help we tried.

It was most thoughtful of so many of you to remember me with cards and messages over the Yuletide season. Thank you!

Fred McPhail, whose address is GLower West Minister Hospital, London 12, Ontario, Canada had written me after Elmer's passing. It was so nice to hear from him. Knowing he is confined, I thought perhaps some of you folks had met him, as I, and wished to remember him with a card or note. I surely enjoyed his company and know you did likewise.

Speaking of London, Ontario, Canada we received a letter from Sec. Treas. W. R. Coburn of the newly formed club called 'The Golden Triangle Model and Engineering Enthusiasts'. They meet every third Thursday at 8 P. M. Anyone interested up that way is most welcome, he said. His address is 413 Byron Blvd., London 61, Ontario, Telephone 471-5534.

Perhaps some of you fellows could look in on Mr. Fred McPhail at the hospital. You certainly would have something to talk about. As I remember him, he was very enthusiastic about our hobby. You'll both gain, I'm sure, by your visit. Good luck to all in your endeavors!

I was up to visit Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Strayer, R. D. 1, Dillsburg, Pennsylvania 17019 a few minutes Christmas week. She is cheerful as ever and progressing nicely with her cane. Their wishes are that she continues so they too can journey to some shows this summer. May the Lord see fit to allow them this privilege.
