Friday, December 17, 1926

Grandma had no more diary entries until she started her new "book of remembrance" for 1927.

At the end of her 1926 diary, she included these names and addresses, some friends long forgotten, others (the Jordan's) were her uncles, brothers of her mother.

Mrs. CC Cunningham
26 Fowler Ave
West Lafayette, Ind

H. L. Barnhart
2615 Mills Ave.

Flora M. Hipp
222 Central Ave.

Andrew Jordan
208 S. Seventh Ave.
Maywood, Ill

James Jordan
221 N. Wood St.
Gibson City, Ill

John Jordan
716 N. Market St.
Bloomington, Ill

J. J. Morgan
4841 N. Capitol Ave.

Tomorrow, December 18th, is Grandma's birthday. Born in 1892, she would be 115 years old if she were alive today. Remember, the oldest person in the world lives in a nursing home not far from Indianapolis, and she was born in April 1893.

New posts of the diary will start on January 1. In the meantime, check back as I will post some of Grandma's candy recipes. Candy making was always a big part of her holiday preparations.

    I guess like today, Grandma was too busy preparing for the holidays to write very much.

    I wonder at what point Gilbert's health started to fail?
