MY TRIP by Marilyn Bonney
First we went to Salt Lake City, and there we saw the Mormon Temple.
Next we went to Montana … the state famous for its grain. After that we visited Texas … famous for its cattle. Then Kansas … famous for its wheat. Then Chicago … famous for its stock yards and elevated trains. Next we went to Detroit … famous for its automobiles. Boston came next ….. this city is famous for its tea, burial grounds, Paul Revier’s home, the old North Church, Old Ironsides, and Bunker Hill.
But my real excitement was when we worked Manchester, New Hampshire, with the original Pat Rooney, Sr.
That just about ends my travels up ’till now.
