Wasn’t so cold, but windy. Bill woke me up to ask the time a little after 5 – never did go back to sleep. Chato didn’t go to work very early – kinda staggered around (got in sometime after 12:30). I fixed bacon, poached egg, toast, grapefruit & coffee. Called Jeannie – she seemed in a better mood. We missed getting to be with them. Rod Spreier stopped by – Bill was going after gas & said I was getting ready to go to Hays. I fixed broccoli, cucumber & sour cream, took eggs, 2 bottles of wine & eggnog. Left after 10 – Mexicans went back to bed, wouldn’t answer door. I called Doska to shut down door to chicken house. Drove slow, didn’t get to Hays til 11:45. Had eggnog and shrimp, ate about 2:30. Merlene gave me a cute birdhouse. Ralph gave me perfume & us a clock for the living room.
Temp range 58° – 80°
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.
