It ts interesting to lose one's self In
a day dream at this, the close of the
year, and review In panorama the sev?
eral event3 which have proved mile
atones as the ever recurrent seasons
presented 'their various stores of pleas?
ure. Begin with last winters Ger?
mans at .Old I'oint, each weaving a
link in memories chain?some even sec
with a tiny jewel of a thought; the
Norfolk gentians, card parlies, teas,
receptions. A lull during Lent. u>
bo'terminated on Kastor Sunday by a
great burst of color, music, ilowers,
?and the social ball set winning again.
Then the long sunny spring after?
noons, spent on the links playing gulf. >
that delightful sport which puts the
t6Bt to one's patience, honesty and :
?e!t-control, as well as skill. And so
the days glide on till summer holds
lifer sway. Here the boat club stands!
out clearly In memory's gallery of
happy thoughts; long evenings in
1 Shallow barks, drifting, in more ways |
than one; or, two rockers cosily side
by side In the moonlight, and just far
enough from two others placed like?
wise just over the way. The seaside
days, the swell bath suit, daintily turn?
ed tinkle; a whirl In the Princess Anne
ballroom as an excuse for "Shall we
go out by the water?" The grass-wid?
owers could, It afrey would, testify to
the Ocean View tire fly dancers and
like open air diversions.
Next, fall's cool, crisp air cutting
one's cheek while they ride, drive or
ramble through nature's gorgeously
tinted corridors. Perhaps to these lat?
ter amusements were largely due the
unusual number of Cupid's victims,
who decided the world's music was
uttuned to the "we two, nnd we two,
and we -two together," and therefore]
they would begin the new century
hand In hand.
Winter ugaln?same germans. same
card panties, same receptions?"same
old story?nothing new"?and so the
flnya nnd memories fold up and new
ones begin again to date from auesuay
of the coming week.
