There was a lot of interest in Dora’s diary so I searched and found another diary to share with you. The last time I shared 1928. I don’t have the next three years and I am not sure if she kept a diary those years so I’ll fill in what I know about them. Angie and her son Carl were living with Auntie, in 1930 Carl’s brother Bob was born and in 1931 Angie had a girl, Angie May. Also living at home was Guy, who was going to Keene every night to see Helen. He married Helen and in 1930 they had a son, Warren Guy. Now Auntie had five grandchildren because Herman (Bing) also had a daughter, Phylis. The five year diary became popular and Auntie (Dora) got her first one and this is where we pickup their lives.

Well that is Jan – 1932 more to come. I spent the day baking. I made 8 dozen country biscuits to use up most of the left over ham and the last of the brick of cheddar cheese. Then we canned the last of the peaches and got 10 pints. That finishes the peaches. We pulled the last of the beets and carrots and I froze part of the beets that we could not eat today and tomorrow. Have a great day.
