The 'good 'of summertime' is really passing and I don't know how hot it is in your section of the country, but in this area, it really hasn't been very hot-- we had a very wet spring, then a dry spell and now again it's been raining for days--I rather expect though about the second week in September we'll get the hot summer days we were yearning for-- and by then the schools will be in full session again--and that's rough.

Busy summer here--highlights for Tommie--he learned to ride his two-wheeler bike without the training wheels--and he started piano lessons in the spring and is continuing (this was his idea to try piano--we think it's wonderful and hope he goes on with them). He is looking forward to going to the shore next week and he's had a lot of fun at the swimming pool and just playing with friends and he and nephew, Ryan, have a great time.--The two of them keep us all stepping!

Keli, 14, has been busy with Drill Team competitions and practices and had a few days at Cheerleading Camp (which was no easy matter--they really worked and practiced all day from 6:30 a.m. on--they found aching muscles they never knew existed). She will be spending a few days at Penn State next week with the Drill Team and the final competition. Other than that she lives at the swimming pool and by the telephone.

Don, now 17, has been working this summer with the Township doing different jobs as painting, ditch digging, garbage truck quite often--and when asked how business was, answered, 'Oh, picking up!' It's been good for him and he is showing he can be responsible, gets himself up and off to work and etc.--also helps the money situation. And now I must get on to the letters for this time.

ROBERT ENEVALD, Rt. 1, Box 494, Coloma, Michigan 49038 is very much interested in any information on a 'Bulls Eye' gas engine. These were built in Pennsylvania. At least, that is what Mr. Enevald says--I don't know. How about you gas zealous folks? Can you give Bob the needed data?

Some help wanted and some help given from FRED WRAIGHT, Veteran, Alberta, Canada. 'I wonder if any of your readers could tell me where to get motor parts for Rumely six cylinder model. I have noticed most stationary engines have trucks under them. I have seen only one in this district with wheels under it. Also, in your pictures the drip lubricators are all on engines. I have only one and cannot seem to find any more.
