122nd day- 243 days follow
(Ski is 20)
Cold + rain
Ski is twenty years old today. Her horse got out last night. When we woke up he [was] back up to Percy Finney’s house.
No workers showed up on the hill today.
Chet Downie came up on the hill to see me this afternoon. I was glad to see him. He is a fine boy.
Frank Holman and Eddie H. were here tonight looking at Ski’s horse.
This is the third day of a North East storm, what the old timers used to call a line storm.
Harry Hadaway’s wife just had her second baby ten months and one day after her first one.
Hope the sun comes out tomorrow.
Editor’s note: Ski turns 96 today (5/2/23) and we all wish her a Happy Birthday. She is one dynamic and lovely lady!

The story of your family and their life and times in Chiltonville has brought me such joy! Best Always, Fred Dunford
