33% Chance's white Christmas outlook is using the definition of a snow depth of an inch or more on Christmas Day. "The central (states) could have a 33% chance of a white Christmas where some fresh snow will fall next week. This depends on where a storm tracks and where cold lasts behind the storm," according to Expert Senior Meteorologist Alex Sosnowski. Episodes of rain are in store, with stormy weather leading up to Christmas. It appears that the frequent storm track will cut from the southern Plains to the Midwest through Christmas. In the evening, we went to Elkhart and saw "It's a Wonder-fifll Life" at our gym there. The gym was filled to capacity and Zion Lutheran students did a great job. The climax of the play was "Jesus is the reason for the season" and a wonderful way to wit- ness to everyone present. They went through a lot of practice to get it all so perfect. On the Lighter Side- When Shirley quit work to take care of her new baby daughter, she spent countless hours playing peekaboo and other games that took their toil. One evening she smacked her bare toes on the corner of the dresser and grabbinE her foot she sank to the floor. Her husband rushed to her side and asked her where it hurt. She looked up at him through tear filled eyes and managed to moan, "It's the little piggy that ate roast beef." "Fun Day" Friday, December 9th, I sort of felt like the Energizer Bunny. Early that morning we took Mack. (Our Sheltie dog), on the other side of Lincoln - for a haircut, shampoo, and bath. On the way home, we talked about FI going to Spring- orence~s field and ride the huge Ferris Cr wheel at Scheels ner Sporting Goods Store. We went down around 2 P.M. When we arrived, there were a lot of cars at the new Quaker Steak and Lube restaurant and very few in Scheels parking lot so we decided we had come at a good time. For one dollar, I was helped by two young men to my seat and buckled in. I enjoyed the ride very much and hope to go again. Ron pushed me in my wheel chaff around the store. I especially enjoyed watching past presidents speak. They sure look real, moving their hands and facial expressions telling it like it was back then. It is worth your time and energy to visit the store. You could spend hours there just looking.
