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.

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.
