Humbird (15 November 1973)

Dark, dreary, but warmer, that’s November and it’s nearly half gone. December is just around the corner.

One bit of good news: Paul Elger is improving and with the aid of a cane and walker, and his own determination, went to call on their near neighbors, the Arnold Matti’s.

Another bit: John Greub, though still in the hospital, is coming along quite well and expects to be home soon.

Jim Staves is home from a Rochester, Mn. hospital and enjoyed a ride through the wooded area nearby with his mother.

Mr. and Mrs. Henry Laffe were dinner guests Sunday of Mrs. Ina Wold and David in rural Black River Falls, helping to celebrate a birthday. In the afternoon they drove to Neillsville to see Mr. Laffe’s sister, Mrs. Mary Iffland, who has a fractured hip and is in Memorial Home.

Mrs. Gordon Staves and two daughters came Thursday to stay until Sunday afternoon with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Lyle Newell and at the Donald Staves home.
