Received a letter from Ruby. The flowers arrived intact. Alice Giles and I drove over to Harper and got some tomato and cabbage plants. We had a nice ride as it was so nice and clear out. The little Goodwin girl got a permanent wave and her hair certainly looks different. Gladys Harris waved my hair and it certainly looks nice. Bruce saw a cougar up near the new highway today. Near Lighter Lake District. We went to Fred Mauls to a card party and ate some very good barbecued beef sand- wiches. Very nice evening. Sunday, May 24, 1936 A hot, hot day. We got not so much sleep as John and Annie came early. Drove down to the state park to see a garage Sam bid on. Then down to see Sundstroms. We took a big chocolate cake, cot- tage cheese and combination salad. Alma had fried oysters, oysters pepper pan, corn, carrots and peas, new potatoes, gravy, olives, pickles, roast pork, pudding, crabs, beer, etc. We sat outside in the open and talked and had a fine time.

Elizabeth got a new spring outfit in Seattle yesterday. She and Alice went to town and nearly melted in the heat. Received an invitation to a stork shower on Doris Brown at Alice Giles. Got a call from John Huson, who will be 89 the end of June. He grew up in Belfair and shared some knowledge and stories. He remembered when Rudy Redmond was killed in 1936. Rudy was a logger and had climbed a tree and fell. John also told a story about how Rudy and this other guy were tougher than nails. They would come to the store and have competi- tions of who could pick up a sack of sugar with their teeth. Great stuff John and thanks for sharing. And thank you for reading this week's diary.
