ToDay is the Birthday of

Mostly fair and warm, wind So.

Mowed lawn all day.

Found my first robin’s nest.

The girls worked on the hill.

First good thunderstorm this afternoon.

Took a walk over to Driscoll’s and saw Margaret and we took a look at their garden and I found one nice flint arrowhead.

After supper, rode my wheel up to Huck’s garden and didn’t find a single thing.

Stopped at Toot’s and talked to May – and Wanetta, stayed till Toot came home from work, and spent the evening.

Bill Whiting was up and I didn’t see him, he said I could have some fresh herrings tomorrow morning.

Had a severe thunderstorm this afternoon, rained hard for 1½ hours.

  1. “Stopped at Toot’s and talked to May – and Wanetta, stayed till Toot came home from work,” It seemed strange to hear about my father coming home from work. When I was five (1945) he fell off a ladder and seriously injured his back and couldn’t work. Toot was my father’s nickname.
