136th day – 229 days to follow
Foggy and cooler.
Cozette and Dot Dunlap are up on the hill today.
Put the screens on the back porch.
The carpenters are up today.
I saw a pair of quail on the front drive.
Took the bus over to the Armory and gave a lecture on the Thompson Sub Maching gun and it went over fine.
I got a fine compliment from the Lieutenant.
I rode home as far as the foot of Cliff Street with Paul Goodwin and Clarkie.
The lieutenant told me the C.O. is sorry to have me leave the Co.
When I got home the house was full of women. There was a meeting of the Club and they gave Cozette a may basket and a couple of glass vases for a birthday present.
My garden finally looks pretty good now, most time for the weeds to begin to show up.
There is a mass of tent caterpillars on the wild cherries and slews of wood ticks on the bushes and grass up on the hill.
Bill Whiting was up on the hill a little while this afternoon, he wants to go to Duxbury tomorrow.
