A good day. No rain today. The men folks worked on the barns. Jim helped Mr. Booker on his flues. Kate Harvey and Irvin and Bill come a little while. They got some grapes. Denia and Cordie Blair come to see us. Carrie and three of her children come. We let Edna go home with them. I was glad to see all of them. Wish they could come often. Kate brought me some snaps. Jim has some fine mellons now. Mabel has a bad colde. Hope she may get well soon. I have finished stringing snaps. 10 oclock at night.
