How Dry I Am
when I ride ill my little Ford Sedan. The rain knows me not
and the wintry breezes chill not my limbs. The rheumatiks
de not bother me and the wife and I and a kid or two bum
al< ng to where we are going, knowing that we will get there
all comfy and dry, and knowing also that when we get ready
to leave the little old bus will be calmy waiting for me to
pi nd the self-commencer, a few minutes after which prodding
we will be at home as dry and comfy as when we left our
own fireside a few hours before.
In the morning I will tune her up and run down to the
shop, picking up the mail on the way, and there will be no

need not even wear my overcoat, and I will arrive at my desk
ready to go to work.
I congratulate myself that 1 pulled a shrewd piece of
business when I gave my wife this same little sedan for a
Christmas present last year. A lot id’ my friends are going
to follow my example this year
