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!
