February 19 Friday, 1943


ToDay is the Birthday of ___________

Fair and warm.

Cut some plant sticks.

Went over to the store and got some tobacco.

Saw May and she invited me over to dinner.

Percy Finney came up on the hill this afternoon.

There was a convoy of tanks went by here today,

Went to town tonight and took over a lot of bottle caps.

Put in the evening drilling.

Bright moonlight tonight, in fact, the best night we have had this winter.

Mrs. McDougall and Ruthie Morton came home on the [same] bus I did.

  1. “Went to town tonight and took over a lot of bottle caps.”
    Adults and even kids all across the country helped in the war effort by collecting tin cans, scrap metal, aluminum foil, and old records (which were made of hard rubber). Scrap metal drives were big community events all over the country. They would collect old toys, old pots and pans, and even bottle caps.
