July 5, 1947

pretty day.

We went to the grocery.

Jimmie & Deloris are up to Elizabeth’s. Stayed for supper. Mrs. Bourne here.

So much about other people, so little about the writer.

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. Dang, I’m a little disappointed I wanted it to say, “Jimmy and Deloris are up to no good”.
