A Day in the Life: March 1st

Drove to school.  Chas Wygrene came up and told us he had lost one of our (no noun!) this made two that we have lost this year.   In eve went up to King’s Sons + Daughters meeting on horseback.

No? Okay, I rather liked the image of Allen crusading on horseback to the meeting.

(Aged 18)
Wea.                                              THUR. MARCH 1, 1900              Ther.

Went to school.  We are going sleighing riding tomorrow night.

(Aged 19)
Wea.                                               FRI. MARCH 1, 1901                  Ther.

Got up at half past five and got over to Pa’s before they had their breakfast.  Got a lounge and some chairs and other things. We spent about $45.  We saw Alice’s father there.

(Aged 20)
Wea.                                              SAT.  MARCH 1, 1902                   Ther.

Went to the burg took the buggy down to get a reach put in and an iron in the wagon to get welded.  cost .35 cents.

(Aged 21)
Wea.                                              SUN.  MARCH 1, 1903                  Ther.



Editor's Note: The Eccles baby would have been Marvin who was coming up on a year old.  Aunt May was still to have two more babies having her one at 46 years-old.  No thank you.

Well thank goodness the football is back.  How were they getting on without it for so long?  

While I'm not really reading ahead, I have found I need to a little bit to be able to post daily.  Therefore, in the entry when Chas Wygrene tells them of another loss, I think the missing noun--which is clearly an animal--is in fact a sheep. You will shortly see why I assume as much.

In 1901, they are so excited to keep setting up their house they are up and visiting before breakfast!
