Chilly but not windy.  Took hot water out. Bill was friendly.  I wanted to get dishes done. Called Joe – they were leaving about 11 for Roatan Honduras to scuba dive.  I had 10 o’ clock appt Dr. Schmidt.  Went in without much trouble. Knee getting  weaker. Right leg a little shorter.  BP 126/84.  He said that was real good. Went to Hamm & Pool for thank you cards. Got multi colored basket & potpourri – wrapped and put in Brian’s pickup for his mother. Made out checks for Chato & Bill Edwards.  Ate fried chicken over town.  Worked on checks – sent 7. Called co-op & Garfield co-op for storage & paid it. Lloyd Miller funeral at 1:30. Went to it. Chatted with Mary Blair.  Bill took Brian to Dodge to look at truck.  Gone all afternoon.  I went by Doskas a minute.  Helen C was there.  Got letter from Kay. Had fried catfish, fried potatoes, big salad.  Ralph called about feed bills. Joe bought a Valley Sprinkler.

Wednesday, November 2nd – 1988

Temp range: 44° – 80°

Up early, at least it’s daylight.  Bill came home to say he’d talked to Dawn.  Mrs. Parker very ill with cancer of the brain he thinks.  Joyce gave me perm, already had hair cut so cut the time down some. Went by Dillons & got 2 apple boxes (to put carns in).  Went by Ralph’s – he wasn’t there.  Went back & got groceries.  Called Ward to get permission to dig turnips.  It was a different field.  First field was not very big – a rider came along said to go south a mile & east.  They were bigger, so got some more.  Home a few minutes after 2pm.  Hadn’t eaten, put groceries away.  Bill came in – fixed pot of turnips.  Took some to Doska & Kay (she wasn’t home).  Ona White had called yesterday.
