Sunday, July 4, 1926

Sunday, July 4, 1926

The kids of the neighborhood fired all day but our boys never shot a cracker. They are pretty good that way. They went to the show when it opened at 2:30 and stayed till dark. Gilbert went down town to see one so the babies and I stayed home and rested. While they napped I lay and read. Mama and Papa went with Guys to Turkey Run.

(Apparently, the boys didn't shoot off their fireworks because it was Sunday. Sundays were different "back then". I don't usually read about Grandma doing laundry or ironing or anything like that on Sundays. They did sometimes go to a movie or swimming in the afternoon.

Turkey Run is a state park, and "Guys" refers to Grandma's brother Guy and his family.)

  1. I wonder what the old folks did at Turkey Run. I'm sure they didn't go hiking & unless they took a picnic there's not much there for the elderly but scenery.
