Move Over, Alice
(Continued from page 1)
have some of the people cook
turkeys and let everyone else
bring one side dish. The result
can be--and was-absolutely
Upon entering the center on
the appointed evening, one
could witness a sight that would
have warmed the heart of a
master chef. Spread out before
the dinner, in addition to the
five beautiful turkeys, was a
glorious assortment of vegetable
dishes, side dishes, desserts and
all the turkey trimmings
In addition to chipping in
$.50 for the turkeys, everyone
brought a special dish of his
own. So for very little
expenditures, we enjoyed a meal
that was easily better than Alice
Brock’s. I can’t begin to
remember all the super goodies
that were there. But if everyone
who made something would
send a recipe, we’ll be happy to
print it so that everyone can try
Since desserts are always a
favorite, I did notice a few of
them. According to some
reports, there were some
dynamite brownies available.
The only really horrible offering
was called “Middletown Jello,”
And I’m told even that didn’t
taste as bad as it looked, which
was similar to a shiny sand castle
after being trampled by a horde
of stampeding hermit crabs. But
after much coaxing by its
creators, even that was enjoyed
by a few adverturers.
In all honesty, it must be
noted that all the food was
excellent. Or perhaps it wasn’t.
Maybe it was the feeling that we
were all there having a good time
that made the food so good. But
in any case, it was an exercise in
After the dinner was over, we
gave Bob a round of applause
for his efforts in making it a
success. He in turn thanked all
who had contributed help and
goodies. But a special thanks
must go to Mr. Gautreau of
Housing and Food Service. It
was he who allowed the event to
take place in the Student Center;
supplied the silverware and
dinnerware; helped prepare the
building and even volunteered to
have the dishes washed.
I have no way of knowing
everyone who cooked all the
great food. But to everyone who
did, thanks from at least one
satisfied customer. As you
know, Alice followed with
another dinner that couldn’t be
beat. Maybe we could do it, too.
Let’s see. There’s Valentine’s
Day, or Easter, or Washington’s
and Lincoln’s birthdays, or
Arnold Quince’s birthday, or
any old excuse.
And Alice has a chain of
“Alice’s Restaurants” planned
for national franchising. Bob
could start “Bod’s Bake Shop”
or “Clyde’s Kitchens” or
“Clyde’s Quicky Lunch” or
"Well, buddy, we did it." Charlie Bussison (I.) and Bill Winkler (r.)
smile proudly after having their fill.
"Anybody care for a leg?" Greg Francis (1.1 discusses the possible
desserts with Iris Praeger after the hearty meal.
Fred Gainer (I.) and Bill Winkler (r.) didn't say much. They came to
do a job on the meal and were amply rewarded.
The clouds Have Called,!
They have spotted my shadowy image
on the brown earth.
And 2 shouts
from the sky is enough!
Releasing myself from the ground
was easier than expected.
I will abandon the earth forever,
and travel to higher abodes.
For I am only a child of the clouds,
and they have permitted me to visit earth
in human form; but now it is time
to return to my origin,
A shapeless cloud!
