Kaye said that she thought that she and Farren enjoyed it more than Erica; that she was a little too young and would have liked it better to touch the aiaimals. Maybe next time she and her cousins will go to a childgen's zoo - think someone said there was one in Winchester area; I know there is something near Reston, Va. Sunday afternoon had been schedul- ed for the church picnic for St. John's Episcopal Church in Harpers Ferry. Due to rain, the affair had to be postponed until next Sunday. Saturday afternoon I wandered over to Georgia Patrick's for my second lesson on her computer. Wrote a let- ter to a friend to see how the word pro- cessor part worked. Great. However, since Georgia had no printout facility at her house over the weekend the let- ter is filed away somewhere among Anthony's many hidden circuits. Sup- posedly when Georgia went to work Monday, she could poke a few buttons, put in some paper in her office machine and out will come my letter 2-Bedrooms Principal & Interest Jefferson County's first totally planned townhome community 725-- 7000 SUMMER CLEARANCE ALL TREES AND SHRUBS m W r Cash & Carry Sales Only !

Harvey Howe celebrated his big bir- thday last weekend- 60 years. Carmen made a big deal out of it by inviting out family for Iood and doing some of her fabulous cooking. Carmen, Marilyn Pinson, and Thelma Newton came by on their Monday morning walk bring- ing marigolds and ladies slippers to be planted. Carmen said she was resting up from her labors. And you should see Carmen's gardening hat: a big straw job with a donkey on the top. Things you shouldn't have missed: seeing Darmy Henderson inside the lef- tover Halloween coffin at the clubhouse after the pot luck supper. All he needed was a lily in his hand. RIP. Larry Gaffney's son Mike came out to visit him and Lucy over the weekend. Very handy time. Construc- tion has begun and the addition to the Gaftney home and another strong back was greatly appreciated. Russ and I stopped by the Gaffney's after Pot Luck and enjoyed the quiet even- ing watching the view with next-door neighbors Tom and Phyllis Land. The 5 ZAP CAP of the electronic bug killer was a small price to pay for a bug-free deck. Don't know if that is all the news, but its all the time I have. See you next week.
