Title Basket of Chips, page 144
Description A Basket of Chips and material, June designed it and she did the work. It was a very beautiful thing suspended from a tiny silver chain. We were very proud of it but she had very little chance to wear it. OUR SECOND HONEYMOON About ten years ago we left our family with my sister Maude, and made the Yellowstone trip on the Wiley Way.`" It cost one hundred dollars for us both. It was out of her savings and was her treat to me. Just our two selves and no worries! We had confidence in the children's guardian and so we con- sidered this another honeymoon. Through my mistake, on the second day after our arrival in the park our suitcase was collected by a returning party and we never saw it until we arrived at the terminus of the circuit. But the pleasure of our trip was not marred in the least. My wife had her comb and toothbrush in her hand bag, but we had no changes of clothes. My one collar did the trip but never before did a collar get such scouring with rubber to erase some of the evidences of use. My friend, Bert Teasdel was making the trip with us, and with his razor I kept my face properly burnished. How we did enjoy the food three times a day! It was cool there and high, and the out doors and sleeping in tents put us in fine condition. To be for a time absolutely free from all daily tasks, not to even make a fire was joy indeed. When breakfast was ready notice was given and we were soon there ready to be served as we had very little grooming to be done. There were five in our party, - two young lady school teachers and Mr. Teasdel. We all became well acquainted before the trip was over. The pedagogues occupied Mr. Teasdel so we were left happily to ourselves most of the time. 23 This would be in 1912 or 1913. 144
