February 25 Thursday, 1943


ToDay is the Birthday of ___________

Fair and cooler, wind North.

Went over to see Steve about some squash for Mrs. H.

This afternoon, Mrs. Hornblower came up on the hill, she had Ricky Greenwood with her. She took up the typewriter that was in the farm and is planning to raise string beans and tomatoes to be put up next summer.

Saw five crows in a row on the ridge pole at the Myers House.

I saw in the Old Colony that Les Nickerson is dead. Must have been sudden for I was talking to him about a week ago. He had been over to town chopping.

  1. Mrs. Hornblower was a Greenwood, I believe she was Ricky’s aunt. Ricky was about 11 yrs old. I met Ricky when he was in his 20’s, he was rebuilding an old MG with a wooden frame.
    A tidbit about crows. I’ve heard the sayings but had to look up to get it correct.
    Finding two crows means good luck. (Three crows mean health, and four crows mean wealth.) Yet spotting five crows means sickness is coming, and witnessing six crows means death is nearby.”
    My dad used to say “four crows looks like we get a check in the mail”
