Taking a Break

Now that the 1963 train trip diary is complete and has been posted, I will probably be taking a break until early January to begin entering other diaries from Grandma Austin.

Saturday, May 25, 1963

Did not have to go out. Awakened early around 7:30 pm by Mal's car stopping. He came in and had Sandra with him.

I dressed and came down. Ralph went back to sleep he was so tired.

I made coffee - we talked. He went up and packed some some clothes. He has a room in Monticello. I can't blame him - it is tough to come all the way home so late. I hope he does not overdo it and wreck his health.

He and girlfriend left. I had some breakfast, ironed, washed my hair, put it up. Had lunch and finished my ironing.

We sat around. Ralph called the florist to send flowers. I am sorry Bertha died before we got a chance to visit her after our trip. We were good friends for many years. We will go tomorrow - she is at her home.

Made chicken soup - later Vernon came by and brought the lawn mower for Ralph to use. Are now watching the movie "The Egyptian" - will go into hospital Monday. Called Suzy.

Weather clear but cold - heavy frost. We went to Ellenville shopping after doing the wash in the morning. The clothes are drying nicely. We took them all in and folded them.

Had dinner, sat around. Mal called - he is doing extra job as bartender - he told us about his friend. We went to bed early.

Bertha Krum died today.

Had to get up early - going to 10:00 am Mass - but there was not any at our church so we came home. I got ready to go to the doctor's. Pat called.

We went to the Monticello church to 12:00 pm Mass. Then up to Liberty to the doctor's. He says to go in for tests, so I will.

Mal was in for awhile and then out again. He called later - will stay out.

I called Loretta in the evening.

Monday, May 20, 1963

Just sat and relaxed all day - so tired. Emptied our bag. Mal went to the doctor's so he did not come home for dinner. I took one pill in the morning. My insides are still upset but I can eat what I want.

Mal stayed out with his friend - quite late getting in.
