My wife has dragged home worse things than that from a garage sale as happy as if she had bought Fort Knox for $3.25. XXXX Mark Pittman saved the Evans family automobile from serious damage Sunday afternoon. Yvonne drove up to the self-service pumps at the Gibble Station, got out and started looking around. Mark got right out there when it looked like she was trying to get the hood open to find the gasoline tank. Our eight year old Lloyd warned, "Better watch him, Mama. They just show you once." XXXX We finally got our garage cleaned out where we can park the car inside and even close the door. The women drivers in our family have strict orders not to park the car or back it from the garage unless they can do it without scraping the sides. The garage was built back in the days when Dr. Holbrook graduated from horse and buggys to horseless carri- ages. It was time for the daughter's music lesson Monday afternoon and I was in Stillwater in my car, so Yvonne walked home to back the car from the garage for her. Margaret Coate, the Journal typesetter and from whom we bought the Holbrook house, sympa- thizes with the ladies about the garage. She lived there 18 years and never did get easy about getting her car in and out. XXXX We've been working off and on since last spring restoring, re-decorating, painting, roofing, etc., the house known as the old Dr. Holbrook home at 222 East Thomas Street (2 blocks east of the old bank corner.) Several people have asked us if we were going to have open house so they could see what we have done to the old landmark. Yes, we are, finally. Everything is about as done as its going to get, so before the walls get more finger prints on them and the carpets get scuffed up, Yvonne and I would like to invite anyone who would care to come to visit Sunday afternoon, October 23. That is a week from Sunday. You don't even have to know us to be welcomed.
