Thanksgiving 1938: Shoe-box full of eggs

Thursday, November 24th, 1938

Cloudy, cold, N.W. wind. I got breakfast and Will and Narvin chored, they then shaved and I just washed dishes so we went to Harry Furreys’. Had a Turkey-dinner also potatoes, gravy, dressing, cranberries, apple-salad, butter, bread, coffee, cream, pumpkin-pie. We visited in p.m. and we came home to chore. Mose Boyd is helping Furreys pick corn and was there for dinner. Furreys get a lot of eggs so gave us a shoe-box full for we get only 1 or 2 a day.
