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.

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.
