April 26, 1947

Pretty but cool.

Opal & I went to the grocery. Opal worked on her rug a while this afternoon. Mrs. Dobbs’ mother and brother were here.

Original handwritten version of the diary entry for No. 5184 entry for today's month and date.
The erased line is intriguing. Maybe a mention of Amy’s birthday that was removed because Amy wasn’t born yet?

About my little diary project

My goal is to post entries from the diaries and journals of my ancestors, willing friends and family, myself, and found public sources like a diary my godmother found in a Kentucky resale shop. I want to organize them by writer, date, and where possible, geographic location. The reason: I want to honor and create a shared, minimally curated source of daily accounts of life from ordinary people. If you’d like to participate, contact me for guidelines.

  1. Aww, gee, thanks for the mention. Good detective work, noticing the erasure. I have some good letters from my Dad, but no diaries. I adore these snippets from “ordinary” lives. I think they are extraordinary.
