1934, February 14, Ash Wednesday
A little cloudy early morning then sun shone bright at mid-day, then a few clouds in p.m. The thermometer rose to 54 above. Never rested this p.m. as usual. Ed, Rena, Yvonne and Clarence came in their trailer and white team from home, via John Hariff’s and staid all night, so we, that is Fritz, first went to Lattimore after supper on his saddle horse to get his package, but it no come. Then Fritz, Rena, Clarence, Maggie and I played cards. Ed and Fritz visited and Yvonne played games. Fritz hauled a load of hay from hills and he fed it to stock and Ben Clausen came from store so he brought the mail and in p.m. he, Will and Fritz got a load of wood on Moore Creek in the hay-rack, and Ben & Will went in car to help Fritz load it. Will chored in a.m. and didn’t feel good so he rested before dinner. Maggie got meals, did all the necessary work and ironed the washing and we had a filled-pie for dinner. A car passed and when Ed came he said they were looking for B. J. Wagner. The Ladies Aid had a surprise on the Jo Hoon family this evening, a farewell as they go soon.
