187th day – 178 days to follow
Fair and hot.
Jubbie and I worked on the wood in back of the barn.
Just as I was thinking quitting tonight Mrs H came running over to the barn and said the ice chest motor was on fire.
So I ran over to the cellar and threw off the switch lever.
Then I cleaned off the motor and waited for it to cool off when it had I started it up and didn’t like the sound of it so Mrs H called up John OBrian and he sent up young Beuregard and he and I took the motor all apart and cleaned it and it sure was filthy, the brushes were stuck, he put it together and it ran fine.
It was 7 PM when I got thru.
We had a nice shower tonight.
After supper Bill and Mrs Whiting came in and stayed a couple of hours.
Geo and Eleanor went over to his mothers tonight.
THe Hodkins barn on the corner has been torn down.
