Thursday, Oct. 2, 2014 - Mason County Journal - Page A-27 MARY'S MEMOIRS It is deer-hunting season again. In the six years I have been doing Mary's Memoirs, Sam has never got- ten a deer, and this year, the first day of the season, he and Henry Brummer get a beauty or, as Mary says, "a fat one!" Enjoy!

Saturday, Oct. 3, 1936 A very busy day. Open until nearly 10 o'clock Satur- day night. Lots of hunters out. We ran out of deer tags. Sunday, Oct. 4, 1936 Sam went out hunting with Henry Brummer and came home with a big deer. Was he proud! I drove to Holly and visited Katie and Grandma. Christine is very ill. In the evening, went to see "Ramona" with Loretta Young and Don Ameche. Very good. doesn't know of any girl who would be good for work at the store. Monday, Oct. 5, 1936 Another busy Monday. Emmet and Charlie were out hunting until 12:30. Elizabeth went to the doctor and got home at 1:15. Looks very bad. Said she guesses she must quit because standing on her feet is not good for the trouble she has now, an anemic condition that calls for a great deal of rest. Sam went to Seattle and came home late. Charlie and Mr. Orr went to Bremerton to get some spirits. A beautiful sunny day turning cold at night. Mr. Voss is working on the chimney, so our washroom will soon be done. Everyone admired Sam's deer today. It certainly is a fat one. Doug hauled hay from Tacoma. By CLYDENE HOSTETLER Tuesday, Oct. 6, 1936 A busy day. I went to Bremerton after Sam had come back from the dentist. Bought three sweaters, two skirts, eight pair of winter hose, shoes, hankies and some other things. Drove to Aunt Vina's after- ward, and after dinner, we took William and Earl to a Medicine Man show up by the school. It's a good thing the children were so young so they couldn't understand some of the terrible jokes. Saw Floyd. My, he is huge, Weighs 225 pounds. Drove home by way of Long Lake. Home very late. Aunt Vina Wednesday, Oct. 7, 1936 Charlie and Emmet were out all day hunting and got nary a thing. Lionel Housan came home with a great big one tonight. Elizabeth packed all her things and Sam took her over to her grandmother's. She hasn't been well at all the past week, and the doctor said she must quit working. She has to stay off her feet for a while. We bought her bed, chairs, etc., so now the little house is completely furnished. A10rie bought her stove. I wonder what she plans on doing now. She most likely will get tired of staying at her grandmother's. Chet Ruff came in and said he heard we were looking for a girl, so sug- gested his 20-year-old sister who just came over from Canada. So he will bring her over tomor- row night from Tacoma. Hope she is satisfactory. It will make things easier for us. Had a nice letter from Irene Larson. m Don Ameche. That's a name one does not hear very often. When I was a kid in the 1960s, he had a show in which he and a film crew would travel to different circus acts in Europe. He sat in the stands and was the host. It was on every Saturday evening, and since we only had about three channels of entertainment to Sam Theler poses with a deer he nabbed. Photo courtesy of the Mary Theler Collection choose, Don Ameche became a regular in our house- hold. Do you remember that show? Thank you for reading this week's diary.
