Monday, July 19, 1926

Robert Collins came over to play with the boys but Dale and Dick hiked off to the creek regardless. Dick came back at noon and thought Dale was following soon but Dale didn’t come. I found that he was with Robert Miller and Robert Johnson so I began to worry when he didn’t appear at 3 to go for his papers. I visioned all sorts of mishaps with those two cowards along and in fact worried myself sick. Finished the day with a nervous head ache that lingered long after he blew in with a little fish about like my finger and he was sore because I wouldn’t clean and cook them for supper!

(Another day when Dale seemed to worry Grandma. I remember earlier in the summer she couldn't get him to do any chores for her. I hope he got his papers delivered!

Robert seemed to be a popular name in the early part of the 20th century.)
