Saturday, February 15, 1936

Icy and colder
20 [degrees] above zero at noon-
Made pumpkin pie and a cake and roasted a porkloin roast and mopped kitchen
usual Saturday work-
Mother has been restless and quarrelsome* with Aunty today and kept away from me also-

*Readers have been wondering what affliction Mother was suffering from. We are unsure. The family doesn't have any medical information regarding Mother. Plus, all the family members that would remember her, like my grandfather (Iliff Dolton, Sr.) & his cousins (notably Hazel & Vera Dolton) are all dead. My parents & I speculate that Mother may have been suffering from Alzheimer's Disease or Dementia. I have to say that I am pleased that readers of this blog seem truly interested in the well being of these women. Thank you for reading & caring about my family.
