Editor's Note: It seems to be a good day for shingling whatever the year. I think it's fun the boys took refuge in Grandma Mason's barn. I wonder why they couldn't get in her house?
I have never heard of Russelburg nor did I find in on a map so either it now has a new name or it was the name of the Lumber store.
