  1. This is so good I had to take it to the living room and read the whole thing to Riley, who was laughing happily!

    1. Glad Riley enjoyed it. I hadn’t copied much in the past for the years, 1918-1922, but I remedied that when I stopped in Iowa City on the way home from Arizona last March. Glad I did — this is good material. More to come!
