Tuesday, August 12, 1930

Rosalia & Bertille washed, ironed, patched, baked pie this morning.  Papa went up in the woods to get a load of gravel for our road, but he got stuck in the branch & he called for Rosalia to come up with the chevrolet & bring along the ax and the chain along.  Bertille made a chicken for dinner, we had soup.  Today is Melissa Wiegand’s birthday.  We all went there this evening.  There sure was a crowd there, lemonade, cake were the refreshments.  They had a cake baked with 23 candles on.  It is also Mrs. Ben Heyl’s birthday.  Clevelands were there until about 10 o’clock then them & Heyls came to Wiegands.  Nick Mueth furnished music, but his music broke so Gus Blackburn got his.  Uncle Fred brought Aunt Mary up this afternoon & he went back home again.  Aunt Mary was here for supper.  I have seen in the paper that Dr. Eckert was fined $5 & costs for disturbing the peace, about his father.  He is to have a trial today.  It looks awful cloudy.

    Everyday we enjoy the “news of the day” from 81 years ago…
    Price of eggs, Parties they had, Troubles of the day – which have not changed much amazingly so.
    Once again we are so happy that you share these journal entries with the world.
    Since husband’s family is from Prairie du Rocher – so this strikes close to home!
