We attended the Gift Show at the Merchandise Mart. I was in my wheel chair, (too far to walk). We couldn't purchase anything that day. They only took orders. The train ride was fun. One week later, we drove to St. Charles, Missouri for their Gift Show. It was a cash and carry show Fl where you could buy at many of orence s booth there. We did some buying. I was in my wheel chair for the long State Fair parade. There were a Cr lot of politicians. I did enjoy an ele- ner phant ear and lemon aid shake-up.

Bewildered, half-way to the parking lot, when he said to his wi, "I-I-I-I didn't pinch that girl," "Of course, you didn't" his wife said consolingly, "I did."
