This day rather runs from yesterday with only 5 1/2 hours sleep.  After eating “brunch” we all and Paine’s went to Monument and Hobbs to view the oil fields.  Then Alyce Claire and I struck out for Roswell.  Got here just after seven!  The best weekend I’ve had in many a moon!  I’d got to Lubbock again at the drop of the proverbial hat.  It is a great place to shop besides being a pretty town of 30,000 –  Somehow all the time we were there I kept thinking of Carsey, expecting to see him around the next corner.   It is a queer feeling – Particularly when you have reason to believe he is over 1000 miles away!   Mrs. Grady is back in her shop and I am glad!

Awoke at 9 but read in bed until 12 – After lunch felt like I was taking cold in my eyes so broke off the tennis date and went to bed.  Went to Rozella Kropp’s birthday party sans gift – I’d forgotten, and did I ever feel small!  Met Zelpha Bates and enjoyed an evening of Contract.  Home at 12!  Mr. Moen came by in the afternoon and tried to sell insurance for sickness and accident.  By paying $7 quarterly I get quite a benefit and I’m never sick!  However, I think I’ll try it Mr. Moen used to know Dad in Las Vegas.
