IRENE


| July/August 1970



Irene

The weather has been beautiful and I just know you all are getting ready to take in some steam shows. This is the July August issue so before long the season will be over.

The children are anxious for their vacation from school and they will be just as anxious for it to start in September. They will have about ten weeks vacation. The way my girls figure, if I make them a dress a week that would be only ten dresses to start back with. I probably didn't have ten for all four years in high school. How times have changed!

Recently someone wrote asking about having their magazines sent First Class (don't know if it was Iron Men or Gas Engine), the letter has been mislaid so if they will write again we will change them to the First Class mailing list.

On Sunday my husband took me and the children for a very nice ride; we traveled through some of the best farming sections of the state; all the fields look nice and green with grain or grass growing, or the contrasting dark color of freshly plowed fields made ready for corn planting; orchard trees are in blossom, here and there large herds of cattle are in pasture; altogether it makes a very beautiful and peaceful picture; it's hard to imagine that in the same country, yes even in the same state, there can be hatred and discontent. But because our magazine is anything but political, I'd better not dwell too much on that subject, yet I do believe that by far, the most of us would welcome more friendliness, less greed, and be able to read less about muggings, theft, murder, and what is so often referred to as 'Demonstrations' in our newspapers and magazines.

Before we demonstrate too much we should do more looking around; I'm sure most of us could still see that good old America is still a pretty nice place to call Home.

Now I feel better and must say so long to you all until next time.
