lifestyle to a touring group of city folks. "One of
the benefits of this profession," he explained,
"is that we have built-in weather predictions."
"What do you mean by that?"
asked one inquisitive visitor.
"When the cows are standing,"
the farmer explained, "it means no rain is likely
for the next twenty-four hours. When theyre lying
down, it means its going to rain."
"On our bus trip," another
visitor piped in, "I saw half the herd standing and
the other half lying down. What does this mean?"
The farmer answered, "That means
half of them are wrong."

Back when I was
drivin the 48 Chevy pickup with
the three speed manual tranny, I could always
save a little gas with the trick I learned in
an automobile magazine. The method was to
accelerate from about twenty miles an hour to
the speed limit which was 70 at the time,
then put the tranny in neutral and shut off
Ya coast until your speed
drops to twenty-five and put the tranny in
second, pop the clutch to start the engine
and repeat the process.
The guy that wrote the
article claimed to get over fifty miles to
the gallon using this technique. Course the
folks followin ya down the highway
werent impressed. I do credit this with
savin me walkin several miles on
a couple of occasions. Dont know if it
ever saved any money.
This is some fact, but

NOTES from Hyde House
Armstrong, Director of artCentral
WOW! What a weekend Carthage
just had! Both the Christmas Homes Tour sponsored
by Carthage Historic Preservation last Saturday
and artCentrals sale of Christmas ornaments
and accessories downtown at the old Second Street
Gallery were huge successes, and we thank all
those of you who participated or came out to view
the sale or the homes, or BOTH! As one who had a
home on the tour I can testify first hand that it
was a diverse group that came through
representing a number of neighboring states and
towns. Both men and women came through, and I
know that the board of directors of CHP joins me
in thanking all those volunteers from town that
worked so hard to make it such a success. I
understand from my friend Judy Hill, the director
at Historic Phelps House, that they ran out of
the original 500 tickets printed and had some of
their men running out to the copy machines to
produce an additional several hundred to
accommodate the crowds. The teas that they held
in the afternoon were well attended and they got
many compliments on the wonderful food produced
by both Cathy Hauser, Tricia Coates, and most
likely other helpers. It was a beautiful day, and
folks were very appreciative and complimentary as
they spoke to us during the day. I hope that some
of our local businesses also benefited by the
extra folks in town that day, which surely they
did. Personally, our sale too was well attended
and to those who came and were patient, thanks to
you too for your dollars given in donation to
artCentral and we hope that the pretty things
that you took home will be enjoyed during the
season. Most everything was sold, and the
remainders will be donated by artCentral locally
to our Salvation Army shop as well as the Crisis
Center to make those folks holiday a bit more
festive and beautiful. Our last show of the year
is now closed, and I will be moving some of the
beautiful paintings by Ken Southwick over to the
Atrium Gallery very soon, so if you missed the
show here you can enjoy some of the paintings
over there. Drop in to Sirloin Stockade for a
good lunch or dinner during the next few weeks
after a day of Christmas shopping in Carthage and
take a look!
