myself a crack at your California trout.

If it wasn't your home territory,

I wouldn't impose on you.

Do you mind?

No imposition at all, sir.

I'll drive up to Lake Paradise and

make any arrangements you wish.

I don't know much about the accommodations-

Never mind the accommodations.

How's the fishing?

It used to be terrific, sir.

Fine. For a mess of rainbow trout,

I'd sleep in a rain barrel!

Yes, sir.

You sure it's no trouble, chief?

No trouble, Mr. Brewster.

I'll telephone the message the minute

I get ashore. Well, thanks a lot.

Miss Letty Larkin. Don't forget.

The phone number's on it.

Nancy's out.

Yeah, out.

No. No.

No. All right.

All right, all right.


Aww. Ice!

The icebox's plumb full. I

couldn't get this in nowhere.


Nancy is having a picnic.

Hey, do you know anything about cameras?

No, do you? Here.

Hey! You can't leave this here!

Why, you big old-


Oh. Pa!

Somebody! I'm freezing!


She's out!

Yeah, Nancy's out!


All right, all right,

all right.

Come on, Ethel May.

Oh, Letty's so busy. Do you mind

if I leave Ethel May with you?

The little Angel has been pestering

me all morning. Haven't either, see?

Oh! Lookit!


Hey'. Oh, naughty, naughty.


To Walter from Letty!


Mrs. Brewster, I wonder

if you'd take my picture.

Good gracious, dear!

If I stop, I'll never get back

in time for the picnic! Wait-

Too much filling,

dear. Good-bye.


A toboggan! Ethel May!

Now, stop!

Ethel May!

Give me my ice!

Letty loves Uncle Walter!

Letty loves Uncle Walter!

There's the front door!

And there's the back door!

My mother said I could stay!

Good-bye! I don't care

what your mother said!

Oh! Oh! Hello?

No. it's the front door!

Oh, it's you. And I had my key

Doris Anderson

Doris Hilda Anderson, (November 10, 1921 – March 2, 2007) was a Canadian author, journalist and women's rights activist. She is best known as the editor of the magazine Chatelaine who mixed traditional content (recipes, décor) with thorny social issues of the day (violence against women, pay equality, abortion, race, poverty), putting the magazine on the front lines of the feminist movement in Canada.
