Tuesday November 23rd, 1965
M.G. and I figured our 1964 U.S. Income tax this morning. We had cake and coffee at home before going to town. We went by and paid some on the boys Lego toy for Christmas. This afternoon the Houser children came up to play with Alan. We took sandwiches and went to see the movie, “The Battle at Apache Pass”. We sat with Virginia and Ellen. It was a pretty good movie and we enjoyed seeing the American flag in it.
They say that the only two constants in life are death and taxes. Well my folks can “Amen” the latter because they were filling out Income tax forms in Kenya.
It seems the boys are in store for a grand Christmas this first year in Kenya. Not only did they get a phenomenal Lego set but they also both got brand new bicycles.
We went to see a movie this evening and from Mom’s comments she enjoyed seeing the American flag more than the movie. This movie featured one of the Duncan’s favorite western characters whose name was Jack Elam. From his info sheet on IMDB he was a prolific actor who costarred in a variety of roles. However we Duncan’s will always place his performance as Jake in “Support Your Local Sheriff” circa 1969 as one of his best.
