Exams are over – Went to see Pete and Velma and get the waffle iron.  Pete is looking so much better!  We went to see “One in a Million” with the Olympic champion Sonja Henie.  She skates and dances One in a Million Posterbeautifully.   Lorene and I stayed to see it twice. I could easily go again! A letter from Carsey says he will be here the week-end of the 29th but he cant make it here this week-end to see the picture – Nevertheless I’ve had a silly feeling ever since the letter came that he would be here. Even though he has an appointment with some truckers on Saturday!  How foolish of me – and my mind tells me he won’t be here! Instead he called me about 8 and said he’d be over about noon tomorrow!!!

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