Friday, August 14, 1925

Friday, August 14, 1925

Got the house straightened up and bathed and walked over to Miss McGregor’s store with a long list to get and found the store closed until Sept. 8. Well I was hot and so tired when I got back. Nearly sick and Dad came to spend a few days. Albert went to the corner to wait for him and he walked past Albert and never saw him, so Albert followed him home.

("Dad" refers to Gilbert's father, James W. Smith, from Crawfordsville. Sounds like he didn't see his grandsons too often, to have missed one standing on the sidewalk waiting for him.

I am sure Grandma was frustrated to find out the store she wanted to go to was closed for several weeks. I'm guessing she was planning to get things for the arrival of the baby.)
