Pulaski Times "Oysters" I can remember years ago (during the depression in the 1930's) my dad used to buy a QUART of oysters for around a dollar or thereabouts and we ate a lot of soup. Now you can buy a PINT for around $7. We have tried for 15 years (since Ron retired from H.S. teaching) to go back to Buckley for their annual chili and Oyster luncheon. This year's luncheon was on January 16 so we decided to go. We went to the Lutheran church there, had coffee with Jim and Ruth Biggs (Jim was also a business teacher), and then went to luncheon. I enjoyed the. soup. (3 oysters to a bowl), while Ron ate their chili. They also served sand- wiches and desserts. In fact, I brought 2 bowls of oyster soup home with 3 oysters in each bowl. Ron saw quite of parents he knew, but very few of his students. I said they probably moved out on their own. Ruth Cluver (former high school cook) did talk about me going to LWML convention at Peoria. If I attended this convention, I surely would see old friends from other congregations. Anyhow, a GREAT day. On the Lighter Side Hey diddle diddle That I won't get it done I've budge in the middle 'Til my dish runs away with And hope to whittle it soon, my spoon.

Tait's Jus' Thinkin' Sometimes things come together and seem to illustrate or support one another. I recently came across two very separate things and they seem to he saying similar things in two quite different ways. Look them over and see what you think for yourself. Catching Wild l'gs You catch wild pigs by t'md- ing a place in the woods and putting corn on the ground. The pigs find it and begin to come everyday to eat the free corn. When they are used to coming every day, you put a fence down one side of the place where they are used to coming. When they get used to the fence, put up another side of the fence. You continue until you have all four sides of the fence up with a gate in the last side. The pigs, used to the free corn, start to come through the gate to eat you slam the gate on them. Suddenly the wild pigs have lost their freedom. They run around and around inside the fence, but they are caught. Soon they go back to eating the free corn. They are so used to it that they have forgotten how to forage in the woods for themselves, so they accept their captivity. This is happening to America. The government keeps pushing us toward socialism and keeps spreading the free corn out in the form of programs. One should always remember: There is no such thing as a free lCmch! Also, a politician will never pro- vide a service for you cheaper than you can do it yourself.
