Saturday, March 21, 1925

I was done up today but had to get the boys off to Janet’s birthday party. They went to Mama’s and John got them and took them from there in the machine. They had a glorious time, Dale and Dick. Gilbert came home early and cleaned the yard and I went out to get the boys. Met Fern Hoffmeister and had a visit with her on the car. Her baby is a cripple but she thinks they can bring him out ok.

(Random thoughts:

I've noticed that it seems that Gilbert worked a lot of Saturdays as an accountant for Citizens Gas.

Remember, Grandma calls automobiles "machines". I suppose the boys took a bus or street car to their grandmother's house, which was on North College Avenue. And Grandma took a street car to go get them afterwards.

We sure could not have cleaned any yards today, buried under all the snow we got.

Another sign of how things have changed. We would not call someone a 'cripple'. We would say they were handicapped or something like that.)
