I seem to be the type to whom people feel compelled to send the comic variety. Last year my sister sent me a Get-Well card. Inside, right below the sweetly sympathetic little verse, she had written, "You ARE sick, you know; sick, sick, sick!" . The year before that she had invited me to her home for a Valentine's Day dinner, and there on her beautifully appointed table, surrounded by a ruffling of mashed potatoes, reposed the piece de resistance - a large baked heart, ruby-red with a cranberry glaze, in which quivered a somewhat dilapidated arrow complete with a broken chicken feather. Running rampant on this culinary horror was a stark naked and disgustingly pot-bellied ceramic cupid with a stuffed olive in his navel. Long have I yearned to top her efforts, and I believe that I have at last done so. This year I made a contribution in her name to the Heart Fund, and that's pretty hard to beat. Romeo And Juliet Were old enough For love, and yet Were not sufficient- Ly mature The tender passion To endure. They had their teen- Age chance and blew it; Neither one Of them lived through it.

She enjoys visiting with nursing home residents. She volunteered her services last summer, and assisted with occupational therapy projects, as well as helping in countless little ways which brought happiness to her elderly friends. She reads to them, pushes wheelchairs, or sometimes just makes conversation. She has other interests, too. She likes horses, and last summer took riding lessons from Mrs. Strong. She baby-sits; she owns and cares for five pet goldfish, a cat and a guinea pig; and she grows Christmas trees. The trees were planted by her grandfather, Chet Rosenberg, to provide a college fund for Tammie and her sister Carrie. Under his supervision the girls care for the trees, the first crop of which were cut last December. Michelle, a very little sister, is not yet able to share in the work. Tammie is the daughter of Bev Mahlendorf, and her home is in the Skokomish Valley. She was born Oct. 7, 1957 in Flint, Mich. She is an eighth grader, and a member of Job's Daughters. On May 30 she will be confirmed in Mt. Olive Lutheran Church where she is an acolyte, and she sings in the senior choir. She sang, with the choir, in the nursing homes. As an occupational therapy project to interest her nursing home friends, Tammie chose the creating of gift-wrap paper. She and her grandmother, Mrs. Clara Rosenberg, learned the process by the reading of library books. They experimented until Tammie was sufficiently proficient to present and to teach the craft. Tammie begins with sheets of tissue paper, either white or colored. It may be purchased by the roll, if desired, and cut into suitable lengths. Poster paint is used, adding very little water to the powder in order that the coloring material may be quite thick. The design is imprinted on the paper by dipping various implements into the paint and stamping the color onto the tissue. Among Tammie,s /avorite tools .are a doughnut cutter, a kitchen whisk, a meat tenderizer, Strand To Visit Laurel Court No. 26 will honor S. K.
