I cleaned some in the bed room and washed the curtains and took them up to Alice to stretch.
There Betty J. and I was in town to get Betty J. working papers. 
Then we come home and Betty J. and I got a lunch and went down to the Derry Dill and Betty J. got a job of working at the dell. Boy am I about all in.
