December 31 Friday, 1943

ToDay is the Birthday of

Fair and mild, Wind So.

Raked up rubbish all day, and there sure is,

Thel and Ski worked today.

Walked over to Memorial Hall and got there at 7.50 and took tickets till 8.30.

Stayed in the hall and watched the dancing and talking to folks I knew till most 11 p.m. then I started to walk home. When I got to the theater the crowd was just going in to the Midnight show, so as I felt tired and wanted to sit down I went in too. The show closed about 1.50 AM so I started to walk home.

Met a Camp Edwards soldier going toward Plymouth, he wanted to know how much farther he had to go to get back to camp. I told him he was going towards Boston. A car came along and picked us up, it was going as far as Manomet.

  1. If this is truly the last day of this project, I’m sad to see it end. I’ve loved reading it. Thank you so much for sharing it with us. But also I think if it is the end, “A car came along and picked us up, it was going as far as Manomet.” is a beautiful last line.
