Sun – Clear – Did I get a good valentine today.  Daddy got me a new dog.  It’s a 4 month old wire haired terrier I named him Sandy.  He’s awful cute and awful clumsy.  Poor Brownie is awful jealous so I played with him a lot.  Skippy and the pup made friends.  When we got home he got out of back yard and I found him down the street.  He’s cute but I still like Brownie and Skippy too.

Thurs. – Rain – Boy, talk about excitement!  George brought to Croydon after school.  We were listening to Junior when the lights went out.  We looked down the road & the wires were down.  It made an awful blue light.  Every house in the lane was charged with electric.  Charlie tried to push over, tip a water bucket & got a shock and I walked over the porch and got one.  We thought all the houses would burn.
