A cloudy day. No rain. It is needed so bad. They finished plowing over the corn. It is so dry that they hardly know what to do. Ben worked on his flowers some. Jim replanted the water mellons. I done nothing that you can see. I made Edna an under waist. I wanted to go to Gretna so bad but could not get off. I need needles and thread and buttons. Lelia Ward washed for us today and ironed and sent the clothes home. She is a good hand.
