Cool and windy – fair and rain

They had a paper sale at school today. Dale took a wagon load from here and Dunlea’s. They made $156 on it, Dale's room getting the prize for bringing the most of any room downstairs. Dale helped load the papers on the truck and then he and George Miller played till supper time. George seems like a nice boy – an only child who shows in his speech and manners that he associates mostly with older people. Albert came home with his eyes all inflamed. They matter and look so bad.

(Aunt Marjorie wrote, "The rooms downstairs included grades 1 - 4. Grades 5 - 8 were upstairs at School 54 when I ws there. George Miller was not one of the Miller's next door, for sure!" The Miller's next door were not very nice kids, from what Grandma wrote previously. To find out more about the Dunlea's next door, go back to the August 11th, 1925 post!)

  1. Maybe Albert was getting the pink eye, which is highly contageous. We,ll see if anyone else gets it.
