Made knitting needles from old wagon spokes to knit sweaters for HWI soldiers. Robbed eggs from sparrow, magpie and blackbird nests. Got red peper on tongue for using imporper language. Waded in flood mud along Pleasant Creek. Did gymnastics on hitching racks in Made harness for dog and taught him to pull sled. Tagged bobsleds on winter afternoons. Bui It pens and ra i sed ra bbi ts Pete Poker's candy store. Drank soda water at the Rexail Drug. Roasted spuds and corn in buffalo chip bonfires. Caught sunfish, boasted and swam at Ras Anderson's Rainbow Fisheries Resort. Collected empty bottles for Denhalter Bottling Works footballs from pig bladders at killing time. Stuffed sausage into pig casings using cow horns for funnels. Raced ponies on East in cedar hills. Passed handbills for Progress Merc. Rode on Progress Merc, delivery wagon which delivered groceries to housewives.

Got violently sick eating green apples. Met my grandmother at the train and rode home in the hack with her. Went to the depot on Sunday after-noon to see the train come in and put pennies and pins on the track for the train to run over. -113-
