Cool and Cloudy. Rain before Daybreak. Sunday morning calm and Serenely sweet as betokens a Christian Nation. We plan to go to Cecil's today. Scripture reading Luke 17:6, Isaiah 55:6-13.
Wagon loads of flowers in bloom in the yard. I took Lena some Iris tubers, four kinds, Violets and Hardy Asters. Cecil bought 73 head of White-face calves. They were delivered in two big Trucks yesterday. Fanny and Richard spent the day with us at Cecil's. We enjoyed the time very much. Mary took me to see Tobacco Road. The acting was excellent but I don't admire the Story very much.
Cecil has done a lot of improving of land. He has 80 head of hogs and will have a big increase of pigs.
Mary and girls are spending the evening at Clinton. Raining at night, slowly dripping.
It was serendipity
to have Mittie's Journal to read and share in 2008. The calendar days of 1941 are the same as 2008. Richard received the Journal from his mother, Fannie, and gave the Journal to his cousin Betty in spring 2008. This great-granddaughter first had it in hand in July 2008. For a few weeks it was transcribed to email for family. Mittie's Journal blog began October 12, the anniversary of the day Mittie and Rufus landed at Gip, Oklahoma 1892 in open prairie. Check out that Journal entry. It is a blessing to share this Journal with others. To stay in the matching year the remaining Journal days appear in the Journal Archive as they are posted. Thanks for stopping by.
