Burwell “Rumbling” we nope you enjoyed a nice thanksgiving at your house, with all your loved ones there with you. it was a beautiful lay with the sun shining orightly, just cool enough to ,>e pleasant. What more could me ask lor, than their child ren and grandchildren with them, to enjoy a bountiful dinner on this day ol thanks:’ \\ e should not wait, howev er, for a certain day to thank the Lord for the blessings He bestows upon us. But every morning when we arise, we should give thanks. There are so many who are sick and in the' hospitals, sad and blue, so many with loved ones gone, who were with them on the last Thanksgiving a year ago. Our heart goes out to them and we hope they will have the strength and courage to bear the burdens which are upon their shoulders. Next in our parade of holi days comes that big time, Christmas, with its merri ment, noise and good fellow ship. With its pleasures and fun, visiting and eating. And do you know something? There are not many shopping days left, and here I sit, with out my letter to Santa Claus written. Some people are through with their Christmas shopping, but I can’t get in the mood until just before that day. Let us go back to Thanks giving now, and not move time up too fast. I think this should be headed “Just Ramb ling” today^ for that is what I am doing. And my grand daughters were kind enough to lend a helping hand this week, and believe me, 1 really needed help. So, in their words, I will let them tell you what the day menat to them. Mary Fran ces, eleven years old, has written. Thanksgiving ‘‘Thanksgiving has come and gone. It is a special day’ for it is the cele brating of the Pilgrims. They arrived on the Mayflower, the year of 1620, at Plymouth Hock. But what I enjoyed most about my Thanksgiving was the family gathering to gether and having a wonder ful dinner, a big turkey at my Grandmother’s house. We were all so “full” after eating so much. There were ten of us gathered around the table at dinner. The smallest one wras Calvin Burwell. He is one year old and he is so cute. It was a wonderful day. Mary Frances This is Grace’s article on years old. Thanksgiving “I don’t suppose I have rc;illy gotten the full meaning Lf Thanksgiving yet, because I L-tili look forward to the day each year when all of the family get together to enjoy a turkey dinner. We know the Pilgrims landed on Plymouth Rock in Massac hue setts in 1620, but the first Festival was not held until 1621 after the Pilgrims gathered in their first crop. The real reason we have Thanksgiving is to give thanks for the blessings which we have enjoyed dur ing the year. This is a day to be gay and happy, and forget all your troubles, no matter what they might be.” Grace Burwell \ This Space Was Cleaned By Sunskine Cleaners When Clothes Are Dirty, Call Two-Thirty SUNSHINE OLEINERS LEXINGTON, MISS. Ford ideas so contagious j thev started a new trend in cars! jj I, you think today's cars have a lot in common, credit tiie Ford sketches above. For these ideas sparked a revolution in car design that's reflected wherever you look on the American road. Ford ideas have a habit of being exciting—practical, too. Consider the innovations found only in our '63s. There is Ford Galaxie's smooth new velvet ride. It cost Ford $10 million to bring to you, but costs you not a penny extra to enjoy. There is i * 1 Ford's full twice-a-year or 6,000-mile maintenance ? schedule that cuts service worry and expense to a minimum. There's a new manual transmission that lets you shift down from second to first withou , coming to a stop. And for '63, there's the biggest choice of models ever offered—44 in all! Only Ford offers all these advantages now. Other cars will eventually catch up—but if you can't wait, here's a tip. *• l^^VSee your Ford Dealer today l m i I Hera's Amariea'a mats oemagloua i roofllna as aaan on tha 1063 Ford Cataxla 800/XL - } j America's liveliest most carefoe care! tflKIl wiaiBBOf MoiwocMaSj' ^ MMO tas Mil Fafcaa ttattaa Baa aad CM Wunaa • wunuma • amaa • kimmi f 'TFh* Abies Motor Company # |l Tchula, Miss.
