Went over to town this morning, bought two fifty dollar war bonds, one dollar worth of fishline and hooks. Paid my property tax seventy three dollars and two boxes of 22 bullets for 80 cents.
Saw John Finney, went up to his home and he gave me a couple of tomato plants and a couple of asatiamums.
He gave me a ride back up on to the hill, Saw Jo. Mentzler.
Went over to see Steve Trelawn about getting the rubbish carted off.
Ski was home when I came to dinner.
Thel and Ethel Swift went up to John Davis’s and put on some wallpaper.
After supper I went down to the shore to see if the bass were biting, watched the boats for a while, and Fred Morton and his wife came ashore and he loaned me his boat and some bait and I fished for a couple of hours and didn’t get a bite.
Bert Griffin was down at the foot of the lane where the cars were parked and was he mad. He said he was going to stop people from parking cars on his land. He was still waiting for the bats to come in when I came home.
Thel, Ski, and Eleanor went to graduation.
