A good laugh - My mother, Mary Baker, and Thelma Atkinson took CAPPER'S for years. I have clippings from both of them. Aunt Thelma was 103 when she passed away. I wonder how old this clipping is. I'm sure she got a laugh from it.

See Them Run! - The mouse story that recently appeared in CAPPER'S made me think of the time we had a lot of corn. Several men and a cornsheller were quickly taking the corn from the crib. My husband called me to come see our dog killing rats. There were so many as they cleaned the last of the corn from the crib.

Suddenly, my husband yelled and literally jumped out of his pants. He said, 'That darned rat ran up inside my pants leg.'

I laugh yet. Sure was glad he didn't get hold of his B.V.D.'s in his haste.
