1934, January 20, Saturday
Bright, nice day and 50 above at mid-day. Maggie and I worked at the meat, she ground sausage and Hamburger. Fritz helped some at meal-times and I fried Pork-chops, rendered lard and mixed the sausage late eve and was so tired I ached all over. Maggie also baked bread and got meals and went to Hidden Timber with Tom when he brought Will home about 9:30 p.m., for Will, B. J. Wagner and Iner Sorensen went with Tom Whiting to Winner to-day and Will got wagon fixed at Norman Blacksmith Shop and home late eve, so when Tom came, Maggie rode to dance at hall. Fritz worked at fence around barn-yard and chored and after supper he went to Lattimores for the week-end as usual. We also fixed pickled pigs’ feet by taking out the bones and making it into a sandwich spread, so Maggie took these kind of sandwiches to the dance as it was a dance at Hall for Catholic Benefit, Carl Dietz Orchestra, Mr. plays Violin, son Organ, Daughter Guitar.
