Sunday, October 9th – 1988

Temp range 43° – 74°

A beautiful day but it went sour early.  I asked Bill how he felt & he must have been talking to someone.  He has to be sick in his mind.  I can’t believe his filthy mind.  I stay home & work.  Keep the yard, garden and flowers.  Do laundry, cook, and help him with his books and checks.  I’ve never given him any reason to doubt me.  He’s determined to lie & make up stories.  It makes me sick at heart.  He came back & said he’d seen “Hoot” over in town, which I doubt.  We ate over in town & stopped to look for her.  No luck.  Stopped at Colene’s & fed kittens.  First time sun has shown in ages.  Very wet til after noon.  Looked at Wheatons Feed; he will fill our silo at $14/ton.  I worked on boska all afternoon.  Made chili.  Mowed by pool 5:45 til 7.  R.V. came & raked.  I gave him chili.  Joe called, will be out this weekend.  Has set date for April 1st.

Crisp morning but got windier.  Joe came down first.  Drank coffee and took Ranni (Haynes) up some.  Guys went out on drills about 9:30 (on Holmes & s. part of section).  Ranni & Joe each at 2 eggs, bacon & toast.  Bill came in & had a roll with them.  We looked around, showed her garden & convertible.  Thought the place looked like “paradise”.  They went to look at ground & have lunch with Ralph.  I went over to town & mailed fair party card & stopped at the thrift shop.  Fixed sandwich for lunch.  Bill accused me of taking $1,000 out of his bill fold.  I never touched it.  Accused me of stepping out, etc.  I blew my stack!  Went out to clean the pool & mow.  He sent Brian up to help.  Then apologized.  Ralph, Joe & Ranni came over.  I fixed zucchini, Ralph cooked steaks.  I’d put up patio lights.  Cats got about half of a steak.  Merlene is moving.

Temp range 58° – 90°

Windy about all day & still windy at 11:20 P.M.  Ralph and Merlene left about 40 minutes ago.  Waiting on Greg & he finally called after 8:30.  Was in Hutch (had gotten lost) so decided to stay there.  I went out about 7am to see what I’d caught in my trap.  Liver was gone & gate shut down.  Trap was empty.  Greg called 10 til 9, was in Ft. Worth.  Mary Ann came over at 10am til noon, cleaned living room & we changed the bedding upstairs.  Fixed Bill’s lunch & I was hostess at DAR (Daughters of the American Revolution) luncheon at Harvest Inn.  Took new impatiens and pale blue robe for Doska in Great Bend.  She’d gone home.  Got groceries & Bill came in from cutting wheat with Brian.  Bill said 3,000 bushels from 1pm to 7:20.
