Anyone out there read Good Old Days magazines.  Proudly, I have written stories that the magazine purchased from me.  The firstappeared in the Jan. 2006 issue in the Good Old Days Kitchen section.  Title is "Cooking Like An Angel".  That is a story about my mother baking angel food cakes for 70 years.  The second story comes out in the August 2006 issue.  It's called "Gas Station On The Lincoln Highway".   It's about my parents owning a gas station that had been in business since the 1930's.  It is on highway 30 near the Keystone corner which is 30 miles from Cedar Rapids, Iowa.  Now the building is rented as a home.  The third story came out in the November Good Old Days Special Magazine 2006. It's called Pilgrim Thanksgiving. A story about friends that have been special to my family for almost 60 years. Wow!  The fourth story came out in July 2007. The title is Family Get-togethers. The fifth story is in the March 2008 issue. Title The Multipurpose Cave. The story is about the root cellar on the family farm near Schell City, Missouri. Wow!
