Did up work. Put my bangs up on curlers. Went in to town after dinner. I ironed what things we needed. Mom swept the rooms, we brought out the cats and a load of things. Fred Anderson brought out a new Coronado radio. Is it keen. We're gonna have a demonstrator washer tomorrow. Heard Jeannette McDonald in Irene. Read the paper and went to bed rather early.
