Tues. – clear – Lib and Shuk went home today. Gee! Shuk is good looking. I wish they had stayed longer. Went to movies tonight. Saw Eddie Tuillan in “The Big Shot” Pretty good. It was awful dull to go back to school after 3 days holiday.
Decoration Day – Mon. – Clear – Warm again – Still too chilly to go swimming. Still at Pine Beach. Minded baby again. Went for a walk to Cranberry bogs with Shuk & Eliz. Also went crabbing with them but didn’t catch anything. Returned to Phila between 7 & 10 o’clock.
Sun. – cloudy – chilly – At Pine Beach all day. Had swell time with Ann’s baby, Joan. She’s 4 mos. old & awful sweet. Went to Seaside Heights tonight. Met Florence & Isabel there and went on all the hobbies with them & walked the board walk with them. Got brass ring on hobbies twice.
Sat. – Clear – Put money on Xmas Card today – Lib & Shuk never got here till 5:45 this afternoon and she said they’d come early. They came alone so we took them to Pine Beach with us. Elizabeth rode in their car with them and I rode in our car with Mom Mom too. Got here (Pine Beach) at about 10:15 tonight. Fooled around & got to bed about 3 o’clock. Talked till about 4:00.
Fri – clear – Rain this evening – Kreemer’s up tonight. Brought us a beautiful bunch of roses. They played cards. I tried to study a poem and fell asleep on it. Oh, Well whats the dif.
Thurs. – Clear – Hot – Went to movies tonight. Saw Lew Ayres & Mae Clarke in “Impatient Maiden” It was swell. Awful funny in places. Gina Markel was in it too and another funny guy. Horbury’s here when I came. Ann’s baby is so sweet and cuddly. I love her.
Wed. – Clear – awfully warm again. This afternoon after school I made mother and me some 0rangeade. Then I drank buttermilk on top of it and boy! did I get sick. Lib phoned tonight and said she and Shuk would be down for Decoration Day. So I guess it’s no Pine Beach for us with them coming. We were to go to Pine Beach for the 3 day week end but I guess not now.
Daughter’s Note: Decoration Day was what is now called Memorial Day. I believe it came from the fact that the graves were Decorated on that day.
Tues. – Clear – Went to movies tonight. They chanced off an electric refrigerator and I hoped I could get it for mother but some big fat thing got it, that looked a lot like Peggy. I saw Pola Neari in “A Woman Commands” It was alright but I’ve seen lots better.
Mon. – Clear – Had French test today. Oh boy! do I hate tests. We went down to Josie’s tonight to look at electric refrigerators. Took Tomklinsons with us. We’re going to get a Gibson & so are they. Went in their house when we came back.
Sun. – clear – Up at Croydon all day. Mildred & I played around a lot. Mother, Daddy & Elizabeth came up early so we went for a ride & it was awfully nice in country. Brought some Lilies-of-the-valley home from Mom Mom’s with me.
