Temp: 42º when we left for Wichita
Up a little after 6. Did chores by flashlight. Car started OK. Left before 7:30 for Larned to get hair fixed at 7:50. Went by Ralph’s, was afraid battery would go dead while I was gone, so he put in a new battery. Very expensive $81. Came on home and finished packing. Got a check for 32 head heifer. Lee had called to wish me happy birthday while I was at Larned. Dave Gambill called from Bill’s at Boulder singing happy birthday. They were going by the hospital in Denver to see Carl (quadruple bypass), then he was flying to Portland, OR to spend Thanksgiving with his daughter, Judy. We left at 11:20, went by the bank, had lunch at the Pastry Inn Stafford. Debbie McClaren waitress. Jewell brough Doska down, had seat next to us. John met her. Gil, June, Gladys met us. Carrie had reservations and a birthday party at Holiday Inn, complete with cake. We were too full to eat cake. Gladys wanted to pay, but Bill got it.
