Gettin' Up Speed

The ink isn't dry on my column for July-August issue of Iron Men Album magazine and here I'm trying to think of something to write for GEM.

As you know, it is vacation time so trying to fit each chore in so the magazine won't be delayed or waylaid we must push onward. Arvy, the person I try to please the most at the press, would like a vacation between now and press time. Janet, my busy helper, is moving to a new home soon and she needs time off to clean out her attic, and there are others trying to get away from it all for a spell.

Most of us work ourselves into a dither and before you know it the summer is over and you wonder where the time went.

The children have seven more days of school before their vacation; they can hardly wait. No more quiet lunch hours for me now. Even our family doctor has gone to Holland for a vacation. Perhaps I should be figuring how I can get a vacation as soon as this issue is in the mail. I may take a vacation to Washington to visit my money.

I'm sorry the cover of the May-June issue was printed backwards. Have had some letters regarding it. One reader said his eyes had been hurting since the day the magazine arrived at his home, due to the picture. We don't want that, and I guess Arvy and I are in the same predicament when it comes to engines.

The weather has been beautiful and our garden is coming along fine, but we do need a little rain to encourage it along. My husband works in the garden and on the lawn all day and then takes a walk to see how it is growing each evening.
