Wendell Little’s birthday today.

Burdette’s came about 5:30 – ate supper (I did) with them – Mrs. B. brought me a pink hanky – Margaret Wolfe came over and she and Charlotte and Alyce Claire and I played Bridge.  Ordered 50 cents worth of cokes!!! Someone ( I think Dwight G.) sent us some gorgeous rosebuds – yellow, pink, and orange – y- perfectly beautiful!

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


It was a very snowy day in Denver  – Most of the recorded snowfall in Denver  during the month of April, 1935 came with one storm. The month’s cumulative total was 23.3″, with 19.0″ of that coming on the 24th and 25th of the month.





The New Deal is becoming reality.
