Carthage rink every once in awhile and was there last
night, hung pretty close to a certain young lady, he
thought, and was just in the act of asking for her
company home, when up stepped a little girl and said
Mama, lets go home. The young man has not
been seen today. He may be on the White Swan laundry

Kris Kringle is the
personification of good will and holiday spirit.
As Macys holiday Santa, he enchants
children and shoppers so completely that he is
deemed dangerous by fellow employees and shoppers
who question his competency and plot to ruin him.
A small girls belief in Santa and the magic
of the holiday is at stake in a climactic
courtroom decision. This show for the entire
family is a Christmas classic. It was originally
produced by the New York State Theatre Institute.

Stones Throw Dinner Theatre, 796 South
Stone Lane, Carthage, MO on December 2-5, and
December 9-12, 2010.

Im only bout half as smart as I

Probly the worst
thing about gettin some a that mature

The next time you order
extra pickles or condiments with your take-out
order, save and wash the small containers with
lids that they come in. They are fantastic for
keeping all sorts of things: extra buttons in a
sewing box; spices; different size pins, nails or
office supplies; even craft supplies.
Keep a can or shaker of
baking soda next to the stove. Small grease
spatters can be covered in a jiffy if they are
too close to a heat source. And it will help them
to wipe up cleanly later.
"Get a professional
look when recaulking a sink by running over the
bead of caulk with the back of a soapy teaspoon.
It will smooth the caulk and give it a uniform
appearance." -- I.O. in West Virginia
If you suspect you have
a slow leak from your toilet tank, put a few
drops of food coloring into the large tank. If
the flapper is not closing all the way, in a
short time the dye will have made its way to the
toilet bowl. If it does, you know that you need
to replace the ball and flapper.
"To avoid a
dirty-smelling hamper, place a single sheet of
fabric softener in the bottom of your laundry
closet or in the hamper itself." -- S.W. in
troublesome-to-open jars of pickles, jam, etc.,
use a pair of standard dishwashing gloves. They
provide a sturdy grip, especially if your hands
are the least bit damp." -- D.L. in Indiana
