217th day – 148 days to follow
Went up on the hill and over to the store and got the paper.
When I came back Thel, Ski, Davene and I went down to the pond.
Jubbie and I fished most all day and caught a lot of roaches. The Hathaways went home early as they were having Scotty Watson coming into it tonight.
After supper I went and did some casting off my point and after a while I saw a bass jump so I kept on trying and got him it weighed 1 ¼ lb.
Jubbies last summers girl from R.I. rowed by the point and spoke to me.
Saw the old swede that caught the big bass on the red perch I gave him, he wanted to know if I remembered it.
Paul Goodwin stopped in here this A.M. to see me about picking some swamp blueberries.
I heard that the man that bought Raymonds is a man by the name of Banks.
Today has been one of the most perfect I ever remember.
