Today is Willard Gambach’s birthday. Had he lived until today, he would have been 27 years old. Today is also Ralph Ettling’s birthday. I heard they were going to celebrate it tonight with a dance. But we are not invited. I send a check to the Athens Lumber Co. this morning for sewer pipes amounting to $15.40. The thrashing machine came here about 4 o’clock this evening. They didn’t finish here yet. We got 108 bu. so far. We got one load tomorrow morning. We were all out at Ettlings this evening. We sure did have a good time. We came home at 2 o’clock. Cake and beer were plentiful. They had fireworks.
