Tuesday February 26, 1935

(This is an entry from the journal entitled Mexico Summer written by Elizabeth Lancaster Carsey 80-years-ago.  Click here to read more)

We were paid yesterday so I paid most of my bills today.  The radio is our own!  !Que gloriosa is my vida! (That glorious is my life!)  I played tonight for Earnest Harp to play at Christian Church’s Men’s Brotherhood.  Ruth Emmett sang too and D.N. spoke.  Really said some good things, too.  Mrs. Martens came this afternoon to ask us to invite several to her house on Friday night for Hearts or sumpin!  We agreed to invite Joe Carpenter, Earnest Harp, Bernard, Dick Heath, Lenora Shaffer and Charlotte St. John besides Alyce Claire and me.  Saw Joe and Earnest tonight and called Bernard.  They agreed to go!  The matter of what to do this summer worries me – Should love to travel but that is out of the question if no summer salary is forthcoming .  We discussed several of us going somewhere in a car, while I was home but am afraid it is only another of our plans that remains merely a plan!  “The Isle of Capri” was my favorite popular song. Now it is “When I get too Old to Dream”  Reminds me of “If I Love Again it Will Still Be You”

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