It happen to be a nice day after all. We found 8 eggs today. Henry came up this morning to get his machine from the garage, but it wasn’t finished yet. So he came down here for dinner and afterwards went back up again. Then about four o’clock he left for home, but when he got to the corner his machine stopped and then he got Vic Eichenseer to look after it. So he got it started again, he left. When he got between Schneiders and Kammlers it stopped again. He called up Steve Rheinecker’s to call Papa over to the telephone to bring the Whippet out there. During that while he came up to Braun’s & had a little talk with him (and) told him to come out & pull it in. So Papa and Henry went out to where his machine was & got the Whippet passed there. So Henry could get home. Papa walked home. Papa got his hair cut this morning. Willie Birkner dug a well on his place today. Louis and Oscar were doing it for him. Bill Birkner bought Mrs. Lorberg’s place.
