1943 Aug. 29th Sunday
Bright, nice day but a few clouds late p.m. I got meals and we lunched in eve, fried chicken at noon, fixed jello and bananas. Will fed chickens, milked cows and we went to count cows and calves and only 4 bulls in Big Pasture but cows and calves are OK. We came past Wm Abbotts, they were asleep, for last 10 days [they] had a Sister from California visiting and they came in at 2 a.m. from Winner. Mr., Mrs., and Billie got up and we staid awhile, then [went] home. After resting until 7 p.m. and eating lunch [and] feeding chickens we went to Mission, got ice-cream cones, back to Boarding Scool to Show, Ruggles from Red Gap. This show was funny, all the ways, got in at 10:55 p.m. This is Louise Furrey and our Dad’s Birthdays.
1944 Aug. 29th Tuesday
Sun shone, clouded in middle [of] the afternoon a Northwest breeze, was real chilly. No rain when I am writing this at 3:30 p.m. but will add tomorrow about change if any. This is Louise Whiting Furrey’s Birthday, also Ed L. Whiting Sr.’s, my father who is dead several years, birthday. Will went to Mow about Big HIll east [of] Lundermans and Mr. Chauncey Sr. is mowing north of Sundquists and he came to Will and they ate dinner together. It rained towards eve so Will got damp and being cool, [he] got cold so came in, ate Supper and went to bed before dark to get warm. I got breakfast and supper, lunched at noon, laid down at 11 a.m. and again at 3:15 p.m. for I was in all in from and it was cool, so I slept until I got the headache at noon. Van Epps came to see if Will was moving, for he turned his car over in the creek west of his house. Last eve he followed Joe and children and Mr. Armbuster [went] around through gates by here and left car at foot bridge, and to-day he and Billie went to get it, and Billie was getting into things in back, so he reached to get Billie to front seat and into creek he went. Billie got wet to his waist and it is cold to-day, so got block and tackle to pull car out, but [could not] do it alone. Mr. wait[ed] for Will to help him later to pull it out of creek.
