But no, no, no; it can not stay this way. I must get back to work. Grandma's garden needs my work. The weeds are growing along with the potatoes and tomatoes. I must hoe every row of plants. I must cut down every weed. I know that the tomatoes and potatoes will be beautiful if they are healthy. Grandma really loves her garden. All of grandma's vegetables have a glow from her love. Grandma is so full of love, that I cannot help myself. When I am with her, I laugh and laugh and laugh. We really have a lot of fun. We even play games while we work: stand up, turn around, wave, lift your feet, and sit down right on a patch of weeds. PAGE 8

A Cookie and a Kiss Anita Howard Wade

A house should have a cookie jar For when it's half past three And children hurry home from school As hungry as can be, There's nothing quite so splendid In filling children up As spicy, fluffy ginger cakes And sweet milk in a cup. A house should have a mother Waiting with a hug No matter what the boy brings homeA puppy or a bug, For children only loiter When the bell rings to dismiss, I no one's home to greet them With a cookie and a kiss. Gingerbread Mrs. Mark Andrews, North Dakota

"Here you go boss, I think these will be very pleasing to her. They make the most superb apple pies!" "No, you idiot, not pie apples, EATING APPLES." Up on the south slope. Those really rare beauties in that old tree on the SOUTH SLOPE!" Bill plodded up the south slope again, wondering if he would ever get it right.
