Then Saturday he found another one at our house but he lost it and it took two days to find it again, it was in the duck house. Something caught the old duck last week, she had laid 10 eggs, and was setting, she knew that wouldn't hatch. Something had caught the drake duck and she had pushed all the eggs from the nest. These two snakes were young ones and about 2 1/2 feet long, but again a snake is a snake and a young snake has a mother and daddy.

The pretty widow ladies that got their picture in the Malakoff paper also got the names in my column, all but Joyce Trammell. I counted the ladies and thought there were nine and knew them all, but there she sat in the picture with no name. Joyce, I'm sorry but you know old people forget a lot of good things. You can learn something ev- eryday. I'm always the last to find out things that other people already know. Last week I found out the newspa- pers charge for putting an obituary in the paper. This has been going on for several years. Just not to my knowl- edge. I haven't had any close family to die in a while. If I know ahead of time about my death I will put it in the Cross Roads News so my daughter want have to pay extra for me. One of my cousins, Dale Morrison from Garland and brother to Jack Morrison of Cross Roads, called to tell me that a cousin of ours had died in Denver, Colo. Lorraine Smith, she had just moved to Denver about a month ago.' Her mother, Sadie (Morrison) Ross was my daddy's sister. Dale and Jack's dad's name was Dyer Morrison. Don't forget the Malakoff Cornbread Contest, April 24th. Several people have booths. I know Bobble will have the world famous peanut brittle candy, and one of a kind gifts are homemade bologna, also have some cornbread cook- books. There will be crochet. items, emu oil soap and candles, and lots more things that I don't know about. If you need a booth get in touch with Glass Gardens in Malakoff. Don't forget to make your cornbread for the contest, it is a lot of fun and Bobble has won twice and I have won one by myself and won one with Bobble.
