Wonderful weather. Not quite record warmth, but we loved every second of it. Caught Amy Hill out for a practice run; planning for the Pittsburgh marathon later this spring. Back to reality tomorrow the weatherman says; temps down by twenty degrees . . . Bob's niece, Trica Boyer of Millersburg, dropped by with a big pot of chicken soup . . . As you can see by the above streamer, we are observing shorter hours on President's Day . . . Big new shipment of cards and books arrived today. Of special interest is a new book, America's Little Italys, which traces the migration of Italians to America and the enclaves with superior restaurants that sprang up in major cities across the country. Part history and part cookbook, this volume sells for $21.95 . . .
