Registration Day. We cleaned chicken houses, sewed. Pap got load corn fodder. Went out to help Henry with the team harrow & sow wheat. Radio said in Wis. snowed yesterday. Mercury down to 20; cold & children skated on the icy streets. A man around delivering Wards Sale specials for the weekend.

Pap is working in the woods. The Ford garage dealer was here, left us a calander [sic] & almanac. Trast from Waterloo. Bert Thompson came to look at the colt. We went out to Henry’s; this evening, on Robert’s birthday 10 yrs. old, Uncle Fred & Aunt Mary went to see Uncle Adam first, then stopped at the birthday. Joe Buss’s family came there to see the barn he has for sale, so they all came in the house; Mrs. Buss birthday will be Thurs. Berti milked this eve. Rose fells pretty good but still has a lump yet. Montgomery Ward Or. came today. Berti’s dress is pretty aqua, greenish blue, 34, little big.
