Papa & Rosalia went out to Henry’s this afternoon.  Papa and Henry are going to James Cody’s sale and Rosalia is going to stay by Leona.  Bertille stayed at home.  Today is Irv Rapp’s birthday.  There is to be a party, but we were not invited.  Uncle Fred & Aunt Mary are going down to Red Bud this afternoon.  It is also Christ. Buehler’s birthday.  Lester Gregson moved on the Thompson place last Wednesday.  He intends to haul milk.  He wants to buy Griffin’s route, the one Elmer Lother drives.  If he got the route he was to start today.  Bertille took 3 dozen eggs to Eichenseers this afternoon and got .21¢ a dozen.  Mamie & Angela Eichenseer are coming down tonite to keep Bertille company.  We found 20 eggs.
