A week ago today what consternation! We were right now a week ago in the police station watching the mice run across the floor!  Jean and I went to Lagunilla but bought nothing. Saw some guzanitos de Maguez. She rushed home to go to Xochimilco with Pancho Leon and I ate here with Ruizes.  Kept the kids almost 1/2 hour while they were at mass. For dinner, we had roast chicken with potato dressing, enchiladas (Mexicanos) and good pulque flavored with egg sugar cinnamon and vanilla. My last Sunday in Mexico!!! Worked on Econ paper, Blah!!

Here’s what else was happening 80-years-ago today
