Thursday, Oct. 9, 2014 - Mason County Journal - Page A-27 MARY'S MEMOIRS It's hunting season, and Mary goes out this week with the Eddy fam- ily to try her luck. They don't see a deer, but they do find lots of tracks. Sam has a bad tooth ache and goes to the den- tist. Enjoy: Thursday, Oct. 8, 1936 Not so busy, Up late waiting for Ruff to bring his sister from Tacoma. They came at 12:30. She is plump and blond. Friday, Oct. 9, 1936 Not very busy. Sam went to Seattle. Took John, Rhoades and his mother some venison. Ruth Ruff asked me if we sold it in the store. She just came down from Canada and didn't know it was against the law to sell it. She seems very willing. Saturday, Oct. 1O, 1936 I took some venison up to my dad's and had quite a visit. Then we moved my stove up to the two rooms behind the garage and put in things so we could put Ruff and his sister in there. Elizabeth sold us her fur- niture for $12 - bed, two dressers, table, rocker, four good chairs, couch and mattress, so the house is completely fur- nished. All we must do is have the lights turned on. Very busy after 4:30 in the store. Sam went to see the dentist. His tooth was bothering him so. To bed early because I am going hunting tomorrow. Mary Theler's reflection is photo book. Sunday, Oct. 11, 1936 Up at five o'clock, and I was at Dorothy Eddy's at 5:45 a.m. Ate break- fast with them. We went back on the Tygundy Burn and saw lots of tracks but no deer. Had to walk up the big hill because a log had fallen across the path. Back to the house and ate toast Photo courtesy of the Mary Theler Collection captured in the water in this photo from her and drank coffee again. Then out toward Black- smith's Marsh back of Henry's and stood on the stump while they drove the thicket. Then " We dr0~ve an enormous : ttlicket and was it h~ i: worked any) harder in my life. Final: ly, we got through and Went for home: Saw not a deer. Very disappoint- ing. To the store and got some steak off our deer and cooked it for Sam and Charlie down at the beach. Sam, Emmet and Charlie were out this morning and saw noth- ing. Sam stayed home all day because his tooth hurts so. Now his face is swelling up. Now I'm going to bed! So tired! Monday, Oct. 12, 1936 A busy day. Sam went to Seattle. Doug hauled one load of hay. The truck burned out a connecting rod and wasn't fixed until noon. Tuesday, Oct. 13, 1936 Not so busy. Doug finished hay hauling. Took some meat up to my dad's. By CLYDENE HOSTETLER Wednesday, Oct. 14, 1936 Put a lot of stock on the shelves. Doug wired the washroom at the beach. Cleaned out dresser drawers and put away all summer house dresses, etc. Are we having a beau- tiful fall season or what? I love this weather: Iput away my summer clothes last week. Out come the flannel and warm coats. I have a stack of long pants to hem. I have lost some weight, and the pants are loose and now too long.
