Thought I’d leave for Laredo at 8:30 am but as the 4:45 made better connections I just waited. Met Frances Neville, also Mex bound, so we walked over town together – Visited Joske’s Store – Sat in the Gunter Lounge and listened to an orchestra broadcast luncheon music. Very good – Got the 4:45 and met two people there. Vincent Rousseau from North Carolina and  Jean Crawford from Colorado Springs. We went all the way together. The trip would have been terrible without their company. They scenery is boring! So different from the beautiful green around San Antonio!

Here’s what else was happening 80-year-ago today
