Sunday, July 5, 1925

Sunday, July 5, 1925

Albert feverish today. Maybe too much excitement yesterday. The two boys went to Sunday School and Dick teased so hard to go to Broad Ripple in the afternoon that Gilbert took them to see the elephant show only on a promise that they help him to sort when they got back. So we all helped him with some work in the evening. I got a rest in the PM.

(I am surprised to read that Gilbert brought work from the office home with him. I thought that was more of a post WWII phenomenon? It would be interesting to know how many hours he worked each week on average, and how often he worked on the weekends, so we could compare it to our work lives today. FYI, he was an accountant for the gas company.)
