Sunday, March 1, 1936

Cold but plesant
Made banana pie* and got meals and done all the chores.
Iliff called this eve-
Mother has been fine
March came in lamb like^

March came in like a lamb in 1936 & in 2014

*This is for all of you followers, because this blogger hates bananas. Food Network has a bunch of Banana (Cream) Pie recipes.

^Irene is referencing the old saying "March comes in like a lion, goes out like a lamb," but in this instance the opposite is happening, at least at the start. We shall see how March 1936 goes out! According to the Farmer's Almanac, this is a mere rhyme, not based on true weather observations.

    1. I had planned on typing just as she wrote, errors & all. The hardest part was deciding on how to format it. Where to put the breaks.

      It really bugs me that she misspells pleasant every time though. LOL


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