ToDay is the Birthday of ___________
Trapped a fox and a rabbit up on the hill. The fox had been over around Vick’s. Saw a robin today.
Mrs. Hornblower, Martha, and I went over to Bill’s trout pond and Bill put 40,000 brook trout eggs into the beach wagon, and then went up to what used to be Charlie Doten’s trout pools. There is nothing left but a few small creeks of water.
We put in one bucket of 10,000 eggs.
Then we went up around the R. Mill over into Blanchard’s pasture and put 20,000 eggs into Percy Fishes brook. Bill said this was an ideal place.
Lou Nickerson has two buck deer heads hanging by his back door.
Then brought 10,000 eggs that were left and put them in Walder’s brook.
Fair and cold today northwest wind.
Saw a lot of deerfoot mouse tracks in the snow today.
Fixed my ariel today.

[Does anyone know: Where was Walder’s brook? Were the Engstroms living on Sandwich Rd at this point in 1943?]
