The babies and Dick a little better. Finished my ironing and started to clean the upstairs. Didn’t get done as much as I expected though never do anymore it seems. Suppose I expect to do too much, having the baby to nurse too. But I don’t begrudge the time she takes she is such a little jewel. Dale and Dick went down town to do their Christmas shopping.

("Finished the ironing", until the next day and the next load of laundry, I suppose. Dale and Dick, being 9 and 7 years old, were probably quite anxious to get their Christmas shopping going. And we are all still amazed that at their age, they went down town in Indianpolis by themselves to shop. As Grandma wrote a while back "such little men".)

  1. I don't think I started going down town on my own before I was ten.
    By then mother was working a full time job, the boys were mostly adults and some no longer living at home, and every thing had changed, at home & world wide.

  3. Looking over the previous posts, I think I know why there is too much violence, crime, and just plain ole bad stuff in the world today - too much free time - not enough ironing. If women and thus their daughters had to stay home and iron all the time, they wouldn't be out partying and getting into trouble. Wouldn't have time. LOL!
