Sunday, April 26, 1936

Sunday very plesant but cold wind
Harry took Clara, Mother, & Aunty top Half Acre for afternoon-
Mildred Searles came and got me to spend the afternoon and evening with them to celebrate Iliff's birthday*
Aunt Parmeal^ and Susie was there-
and Donald, Francis and little Donnie to supper**

*Iliff's birthday was April 29th. Mine is April 24th & I am having my 40th birthday party today 78 years after my grandfather's 39th birthday party.

^Mom says her name was actually Pamelia Apgar, & she died in 1937.

**Frances is Mildred Searles' sister. She married Donald Sharpsteen & had one son also named Donald. Frances died in a tuberculosis sanitarium in the Adirondacks a few years after this. Donald remarried & Donnie didn't have contact with his mother's family until he was in college.

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