May 4 and 5, 1947

May 4

Pretty day.

Elizabeth and Clayton went to church. Came here for dinner. Bill Hill was here, fixed water pipe. Charged $3.00. I went home with Elizabeth and stayed a while then came home and went over to Mr. and Mrs. Baurne’s and stayed a while. Had grapette and cake.

May 5

Right pretty day.

We washed. Elizabeth came this morning. She went to the Dr. this afternoon. Opal went with her. I stayed at home. Hattie came.

About my little diary project

The 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 discovered 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. I searched online and found old bottle caps from a soda callled “grapette”….grape flavor, presumably.
