Albert’s birthday. We got him two sets of Lincoln Logs and Mama got him the other. Ours were to be delivered this AM so he nearly deviled me to death till they got here. Dale went over and got the other set so they had a big time building cabins, etc. They are awfully nice toys if they don’t get scattered. Dad came in the evening. My feet tire so they make me sick almost. My new shoes are too high heeled to wear doing house work. They make me so draggy I never get done.

(Aunt Marjorie wrote, "Ned and I used to play with Lincoln Logs probably the same ones! I never knew Mother to wear very high heels. Her feet always hurt - no matter what! "Dad" is Grandma Smith (Gilbert's father)".

It is interesting that you can still buy Lincoln Logs today. What other toys are like that, withstanding the test of time?)

  1. My boys have Lincoln Logs and love them. One of the most used toys in our house.

  2. Another golden oldie is the tinker toys. I remember playing with tinker toys, but none of my kids seemed interested in either one. Too old fashioned I guess

    Would Albert really have been 87 today? In my mind, he will always be in about his early 40's. I remember he came to visit one time (maybe the only time during my life time) and went to the local Catholic church to attend mass wearing a Snoopy sweatshirt. That always stayed in my mind, because we always had to dress up when we went to our church - the local Chrisian Church, and I just thought it amusing that a priest would wear a Snoopy sweatshirt to mass (maybe as a disguise?)
