Sobotka told of her trip to Czechoslovakia and had some very good
snapshots to share with us. Unusual churches were visited as well as
outdoor museums, displaying bee hives that looked like small thatched
roof houses (almost like what you see in Africa). A great evening
traveling with Margie, but then she served kolache’s. My, oh my, they
really made a hit with everyone. Yes, she even met some of her

Claire’s apology-she checked the master on the computer and everything
was great, hit print and took it to Staples for printing of the Roots &
Leaves. It is always collated for us, so that was great. Somewhere
along the way, Claire noticed page 80 was on a sheet by itself. That is

stapled sorted and ready for the mail. AND she knew what was wrong!

I am only guessing what happened, a hidden page?, well, I truly
apologize and am sorry, the complete story is there, but in two
versions, as I had made a correction on that page. And yes, as I type

weather and other conditions were quite unfavorable, the merchants of
Scribner enjoyed a good holiday trade. The Christmas festivities
commenced Wednesday evening with tree and interesting exercises at the
different churches. Christmas Day was unusually quiet. The cold
weather, which during last night caused the mercury to drop as far as 10
below zero, almost entirely concentrated the enjoyment of the day about
the family hearth. There were the usual arrivals and departures of
holiday visitors, including Santa.

Christmas day at high noon, the wedding of Miss Jessie Dunn and Mr John

intense popularity has been proven by the number of “showers” which were
