Tuesday, May 5, 1936

plesant all day
Hay pressers did not come to press hay today
I made tapioca custard this A.M.
Iliff came and we went to Hattlers to collect for debt on binder twine-
Forgot*
went to Mab & Henry's too-
had a fine visit- and nice day with Iliff-
Lizzie Hughes spent the day here-
Mother was good all day
I mowed the south lawn-

Twine by Rosa Money, 2010^


*The Hattlers forgot they owed a debt on binder twine? Apparently there was a shortage of binder twine at one point. In Canada it was illegal to import it from the US.

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