Homer Does Some
Homer Bentley's missus wis
working on her new sewing ma
chine, when Homer comes in, draws
Bp chair, and starts talking:
Don't you think you're running
too fast? he says. "Slow down!
WaUh out! Be careful!"
When the missus finally turns
with murder in her eyes, Homer
says goodnature.! y: "I thought
you might like a little help, dear
like you help me drive the car."
The missus can't help but burst
ut laughing and they settle what
might have been a quarrel orer a
friendly glass of beer. The missus
agrees to give up back-seat driving
and nagging Homer about ashes on
the rug. Homer agrees to quit cri
ticizing Sarah's taste for flowery
hits and parsley salad.
From where I sit, the key to get
ting on together is meeting every
issue half way and overlooking
any petty differences in tastes
whether these tastes apply to beer
or flowery-looking hats!

Sunday, May 9th is Her Day and she's very special . . .
the only mother you'll ever have. So give her some

Take a little time to make your selection and choose

ware. Come in and look around. We have plenty to show
you. ... To mother as to you, something from the
jewelers is always something special.
