We painted another little girl. Had spring chicken dinner. It rained all night, this morning yet; can’t cut wheat for awhile now. There was a beautiful float went by, advertising an auction sale to be held at Belleville Sat. & one car to be given away free; the float was shaped like a boat; radio in it, sure was a dandy. Mr. Edgar Prediger oldest boy Cletus was operated for appendix at Belleville, & died yesterday, 7 days since operation, appendix was grown on to liver they say, Jos. Gregson’s neighbor. Rained most terrible this afternoon, just a cloud burst, there was so much water on the road here, splashed all over when the cars went through it; after the rain, kids were all lined up walking in the water in the gutters, also Mrs. Wagners. Papa went over to Rennecker a little while. Henry sends milk to Waterloo New Athens now, Helfrich hauling it, got a new chev. truck & hauls to Athens now. We cleaned basement.
