Murphy's for the day.  Helped them butcher washed my hair after dinner, washed and set Jane's hair.  Came home and prepared for a chilli supper.  Had 2 people for supper. Danced and played games rest of evening.  Company left shortly before 12:00.  straightened up house and went to bed tired and happy.

February 5 - Sunday. Cold.
Got up and did not go to S.S. as the weather was too chilly.  In afternoon went to Gommel (wore Edwins boots) stayed there until eve.  Came home, got ready for big date.  Wayne came about 5:30 later we went to Greensburg to the show.  Came home and went to bed.
