Wednesday, January 22, 1936

Windy and cold
Mother never went to bed at all last night.
She was tired but good all day-
I done all the chores and swept and dusted-
Electric light wire blew down so was without lights* and eat supper with lamp-
Men came and fixed it before 7-30 o'clock.

*Since they were probably heating with wood, being without electricity was not as big of a deal as it would be today.

Thanks for visiting this flashback to 1936. I'm sure Irene would be pleased! We'd love to hear from you.
