January 8 Friday, 1943


ToDay is the Birthday of ___________

Fair and not too cold.

There are still some rabbits up around the hill and some pheasants.

Painted screening all day and finally got them finished up.

Wrote a letter of recommendation of Percy Finney to the National Fireworks at Hanover.

The trout eggs haven’t hatched out yet.

Sky got a very good report card from High School.

The junkos and chickadees up on the hill have already eaten 20 lbs of bird feed.

There doesn’t seem to be as many seagulls as usual this winter.

Using autos for pleasure was ruled out for the duration of the war. All driving for pleasure, sport, are over.

The war seems to be going in our favor still.

  1. Every year you had to paint the window screens, which were made of steel and had to be repainted every year. We forget how much work was saved with the advent of plastic.
