    —Lancaster Farming, Saturday, November 19,1977
The big day has come and
gone. AH the flourish and
fanfare are a thing of the
past. It was a beautiful
wedding and a wonderful
reception and we have
gained another daughter.
The evening ceremony was
resplendent with flowers and
candles. The huge cake was
a sight to behold with a
simulated fountain and
playing lights in the center of
it. All evening my eyes kept
following my youngest high
school-age son, with his six
foot stature, walking around
in his dark suit with tails as
he ushered people to their
seats. How did he grow up so
But as we all know, it isn’t
what is on the outside but
rather what is on the inside
that counts. And to prove it -
the week before I had
washed and waxed and
polished our car to be ready
for the special event.
Wouldn’t you know it, the car
could not be started. Never
before had it behaved this
way! So, our second son
loaned us his 1950 Dodge and

we were on our way. It is
good that I decided the day
before to do a kind deed and
had washed all three cars in
the driveway.
One reminder of the day is
a large arrangement of fall
flowers on my coffee table.
And, another reminder that
will be around a bit longer is
the floor length gown, one of
only a few which I’ve owned,
that hangs in my closet. My
daughter, Judy, made it for
me and also made her own
gown. Hers was a last
minute affair as she hem
med it on her way home
from Penn State - after
getting up at 5:30 a.m. so
that she could home to help
me with the rehearsal meal.
One other thing that made
the day eventful was the
arrival of our daughter and
her husband from Portland,
Ore. The next day they left,
in their rented 1978 car for
the Philadelphia Airport,
and flew to Nassau in the
Bahamas for a week’s
vacation. It should be a nice
place to visit in November.

“Well,” said the elementary school teacher.
“Now that you know the meaning of the word
‘abyss’, give me an example of one ” -
Immediately, I raised my hand Being an
overeager learner, 1 usually got called on, and this
day was no different.
“An abyss," I said with expertise, “is like the hay
hole over the bull pen--tf you fall down there, you’ll
never come out ”
Not being a farm child, my teacher was at a loss
to understand the sage wisdom I had just im
parted, and to Cover up her lack of understanding
and even possible disagreement with my
statement, her brows knitted, and her eyes
wandered helplessly over the entire room, hoping
some other more intelligent child might come to
her rescue.
No one ever did So, we went on to the next
spelling word.
But, it is true, you know. Hay holes have always
been the terrors walking around the upstairs of
the barn. They are all strategically placed-one
above the steer pen, another above the bull pen,
one above the cow stable, and a fourth above the

Three of the four sit right out in the open--
unprotected-and the trick is that sometimes they
are open and sometimes they are closed.
And, when they are open, they swallow children
up and throw them into the black depths of the
bull or the steer pen from which children never
return again -or so I’ve been told.
I’ve never fallen down any, but there have been
some close calls, like the time (to be continued
next week).
