Emmet's day off so Sam was home then back to Se- attle tonight. My interest was drawn when Mary writes of seeing Gilmore the lion passing through town in his cage. So I did a little research and found that in the 1930s there was a gasoline company called Gilmore and the lion was its mascot. In the early 1940s, it was bought out and it became Mobil Oil Co. and remains to this day. Thank you for reading this week's diary.
