Reading this week's issue is like reviewing a travel and medical bulletin
Kathy Diefenbach is on vacation this week, probably recovering from the
effects of having two teeth pulled last week.
Carole Wiedeman has been out one week and will probably be absent another
week because of an infection. It all came to light after she was
accidentally thrown from a raft into what she thought was a few feet of
water but which turned out to be two or three feet of suction-type marl
which held her fast until she could be pulled out. Manning the switchboard
quite efficiently in Carole's absence is Mary Rossiter.
Ann Mitchell is also home with a similar infection and will probably be out
Mary Desentz is on vacation this week and at the same
time making preparations for her daughter's wedding in September.
Van Patrick is trying to bring out the 'green-eyed' monster in all the men
here. He paraded Miss USA around the station Monday, August 18.
Mrs. Knorr will be "slipping" her geranium plants before long and she'll be
very happy to 'slip' some to anyone who would be interested in them. Just
give her your order - she has red, pink and white to choose from.
