ToDay is the Birthday of ___________
South wind and warm, 62.
Trimmed up some wood this morning.
Pruned the wisteria after dinner.

Stopped in to see Vick. Eric was asleep.
Ski went over to Vick’s today.
I wrote a letter to Mrs. Hornblower.
Got a letter from Dave today. He said Dottie is still hanging on, her mother is there now.
Dave says the Co. are planning to build larger and better skyfarers [?]** after the war is over.
Wrote a letter to Bob tonight.
Eleanor and Ski went over to Vicks while she and Walder went to Black and White.*
All the commentators are talking about the speech Winston Churchill made yesterday.

“Take all swift advantage of the hours.” Shakespeare
*Sometimes, these journal entries aligned with my own memories. I remember my grandparents going to Back and White Club when I was a child. My mother (Anne Verre) has two painting of my father (Steven Verre) in her living room that were done when he offered to sit as a model for the Club. It’s amazing to me, these tiny reminders in these pages that let me know these people are a part of my own history.
