We somehow managed to de- liver three Valentines Tuesday: a bouquet of daffodils to Mother's grave, a string of paper hearts to Gertrude who needs some cheer- ing up after having her leg in a cast for eight weeks; and the third to a little boy and his dog Fritz. --O--- Gertrude showed her apprecia- tion with tears. We don't know Fritz's reaction but it made us feel a little better about the state of this sorry old world. --O-- We fully intended to send Val- entine birthday.greetings to Paula Jaeger, Tommy Burke and Mary Mansfield.
