1934, February 8, Thursday
A cold night, bright, nice day after a hazy horizon in morning and temperature rose to 48 above. I copied list of grazing permits and wrote in diary and fixed all financial deals, played solitaire, and after supper Maggie, Will and I played rummy. Will greased his car and he and Ben went to Wm Pierce’s. Tom Whiting brought Ben 50 bu. shell corn and 30 bu. here so Ben came along. All Tom could get was 80 bushels so will get more when some is shelled down south, so Ben rode over with Tom. Fritz hauled 2 loads of hay and 1 unloaded to the stock and he left one on ray rack to be fed later, as Fritz went to Lattimores to stay while Mr. and Tom Whiting take a load of calves to Pender, Nebr. to be sold. He went after supper and got in this morning about 4 a.m. from Jamison. Bud (Harold) Whiting came early to get a check to get corn and back again to get Brownie to ride. He got in our hogs and also put horses that got out in east-pasture to the field.
