Page 2 CLI//CH VALLEY TIMES, St. Paul, VA, Thursday, August 29, 2013 Of shoes..and ships..and sealing Reprinted from November 7, 1974 One of our son's friends walked into our house on a recent Saturday when we were into painting our living room, and, standing in the midst of the chaos such a project, always creates; innocently asked, "Hey, you all doing your spring cleaning." " 9', . Now I had to assume one of two things: he was confused, caleridar-wise (this took place in late October); or, he iknew me far too well. It is unsettling to think that a 12-year-old has one pegged so perfectly, but Fm afraid that's probably the answer. Anymore, I feel that I'm constantly running behind on a lot of things, "spring cleaning" being one of the first items on-my late list. ("I've occasionally commented that. I still have spring cleaning left over from 1968...people laugh, thinking I'm joking, but the truth is that the statement was made in utter seriousness.) - I love doing what I do, but being involved in a business sure doesn't get the dust off the furniture at home. There's a lot to be said for women's lib, but I'll bet Gloria Steinem and Betty Frieden have live-in housekeepers!, At least I have the deep comfort of knowing that, like other working wives and-or procrastinators (of which I'm bo.th), I have lots of company. Even if you're caught.up on your spring cleaning, or fall leaf- raking,a0r whatever, I'll bet there's some place where you're behind'l.ike I am. Ironing, for instance. Even before I had the excuse of full-time employment outside my home, I'd fall far, far behind' on ironing--primarily because I 1) hated to do it, and 2) did it so badly. I'd think up things to do instead of ironing, and consequently, it got to the point"where clothes were left so long at the wax.. by Ann Young Gregory bottom ofthe ironing basket that when I finally did get around to them, the children had grown 2 sizes, so I didn't need'the clothes ironed anyway. Now that's behind! Letter writing is another thing I probably have a lot of company on. Letter writing used to be one of the things I did instead of ironing, but these days, none of my friends from long ago and far away would know whether or not I still exist were it not for the telephone. I really do like to write letters, but alas, the time just isn't there anymore. Two other big problems are closets and dresser drawers. Generally by the time I get around to cleaning out my closet, the old shoes I was going to throw out have come back into style. And when 3- inch-long socks still rest on the bottom of the dresser drawer of a child whose socks are now of a size to get mixed up with this father's, somebody has a problem. Another thing I used to do instead of ironing was get ready for Christmas. By July I'd be started, and presents would be made or bought and ready for wrapping by the time Hallowe'en costumes had to be made. It is presently the first week in November, and I still don't even have the Hallowe'en costumes made, much less Christmas presents ready...or even thought about[ Christmas won't wait, so I guess I'll really have to get busy shopping, but as far as all the other things that are late, I invite you to join me in looking fondly back on a thought from Dr. Spock's "Baby and Child Care." (Here, it's taken completely out of context, but it wouldn't suit my purposes otherwise, so I'll leave it that way.) Dr. SpOck said something to this effect: "...don't worry about the housework. The dust will still be there when you get around to it." F I RIBBON-CUT;rlNG...From left to right: Diana Hagy' Blankenship, Mayor of Grundy; A.

Make it Fun! by Pam Young Leave Home Without It! It was my husband Terry's idea and it sounded good, because I LOVE my pillow. On his uggestion and knowing we were going to stay ten nights in different motels as we travelled to Casper, Wyoming and back, I took my treasured goose down pillow. What I love about it is how well it responds to a poke or a punch creating the perfect position for my sleepy yet discriminating head and face. I put a light peach pillow case on my foul feather sleeping companion and we were off up the Columbia River Gorge toward adventure. (We'd never travelled together before this trip so I hadn't experienced the delight of using her for a nap across the boring part of Oregon. Not Boring, Oregon, it's quite beautiful.) Our first night on the road was spent in John Day, Oregon at the Best Western. Our room offered a king-size bed with a quartet of lumpy, micro-fiber-filled pillows. I hugged my friend with gratitude knowing it would insure a far better night's sleep than the sorry excuses for head rests before me. Terry's daughter and her family were travelling with us in a separate car and on the second day of our trip, Kyle our 10 year- old, joined us in our car as we New ginseng regulations submitted by Bill Worrell ginseng must plant the seeds of New regulations concerning the harvest of ginseng went into effect August 14, 2013.

Terry informed me he'd packed my pillow in the mink to make room for our extra passenger. Our next resting place was the Brandin' Iron Inn in the rustic little town of West Yellowstone. Reuniting with my pillow at the end of a long tourist trappy day, I was aghast! "Terry, this is NOT my pillow! This is John Day's pillow! You packed the wrong one. Mine's back in room 111 !" I ranted. "We'll call them tomorrow and we'll work it out. We can have" them send yours home and weql mail theirs to them," he suggested. We spent two nights at the Brandin' Iron Inn and I was forced to sleep with a choice of the John Day pillow or the Brandin' Iron's which was moi like sleeping on Shredded Wheat. I chose the John Day. The next morning we left .for JacksOn Hole, Wyoming. The day was filled with wildlife; moose, a Grizzly mom and her two babies, a bull elk and many buffalo provided stop after stop for photos and excitement. That evening at dinner at a nice restaurant on Jackson Lake, a small flock of geese flew over our outdoor table. It reminded me of my pillow back in John Day. The next thought was, 'We didn't pack the John Day! We left it at the Brandin' Iron with the Shredded Wheat pillows. This time it was my fault, and now I didn't have a pillow fo hold in ransom for my goose down in John Day. .-:! I don't even want to think about the conversation that would have to take place to get the J01iff Day back from the Brandin' Iroh, Inn, but I will write it just for, you. "Ring, ring, ring." "Brandin' Iron Inn." "Hi, we stayed in room 230 last. ' night and I left a pillow I took:by accident from the Best Western Motel in John Day, Oregon  Could you send that pillow to my home (I'll be back there in five' days), so I can send it to the Best Western when I get home, so ii can get my own pillow back that I left there when I took their -pillow?
