Hi, Opal: Yes, I'm still in New York, at least untill October. I've been here sincec the last of March and it will take till October for the heat to die down. Glad you liked the book. It's a good one but there was another that I wanted to send that's not attainable at this time.
Your hubby probably knows where a little town called Bezine is. It's wheat country and they didn't seem to have any treese when I was there, in 1949. I worked on a wheat farm for a guy named Harley Price. And I won't forget it. Dawn to dusk. Driving that tractor with the spiked rear wheels was murder. I disc-plowed and planted the wheat but I didn't stay to harvest it. My mother got sick and my sister called me home. But she got well. I elected not to go back.

Years later, my oldest daughter was born in Newton, at the Axtell Clinic & Hospital. That daughter won't speak to me today. Ah! well.
You've got some reading to catch up on. Get busy.

Regards; ELTON
