Well, I guess our ‘Old Lazy Days’ are about over for
another year which means most Reunions are too. Shucks! but
didn’t we have a good time! At least I did at the ones at which
I was privileged to attend.

I’m back with my 33 cherubs again and are they ever cute!
One little blond curley-headed fellow I’ve had to move closer
to my desk already. Not because of his looks and my admiration. The
‘Old Nick’ just sticks out of his big blue eyes and in
future days he will probably break some poor girl’s heart. Then
there’s the freckle face redhead, third row, who loves to tease
the pretty little dark haired girls by opening bows and pulling
their pigtails. Oh, it’s all in the business of the day, which
makes me glad I’ve been privileged to spend my time with
children nine months of the year.

Speaking of Reunions isn’t it a shame Kinzers had such bad
rainy weather. Yet those people who joined us had a good time,
I’m sure, even if some did take off their shoes and stockings
and roll up their pants to walk around.

The Early American Reunion at Red Lion, Pa., also had bad luck
with the weather. This all goes with life and makes us appreciate
the times we do have sunshine come our way.

Had the honor and privilege of going to the Williams Grove, Pa.,
Steam Engine Reunion with another married man this year since mine
was away out West! (Don’t tell him, please, but Dave Egan’s
wife loaned him to me on Saturday night. We had their daughter,
Noel, and our gal, Marsha, along –so we were really good.) It was
an excellent show. Over 20 large engines. Something doing every
minute marvelous antique articles on display. They certainly should
be congratulated.
