July 28, 1961 He Seeks Adventure On Roof Of House ST. PAUL PARK—Little Jeffrey Jensen is about like any other 2-year-old boy— full of curiosity and the spirit of adventure.
Btu Tuesday evening, Jeff’s curiosity nearly proved the undoing for mom and dad. Mr. and Mrs. Elmer Jensen of…13th Avenue.
Mrs. Jensen turned her back for a moment and Jeff was gone as quick as you can say, “new house.”
Incidentally, that’s where Jeff was.
On the roof of a new house being built near the Jensen’s.
On the highest part of the roof of a split-level, calm as anything, surveying the neighborhood from a real neat place.
Daddy Elmer quickly mounted the ladder workmen had so nicely left for Jeff as neighbors surrounded the house with arms outstretched, hoping the 2-year-old wouldn’t decide to take the quick way down.
There were some mighty relieved adults when Jeff and daddy came down the ladder. Jeff? He thought it was kind of fun.
