Worked on cards – Wendy here. Went shopping for bed spreads. Got guestroom all cleaned + set up and it looks very nice. I have answered all the cards so far that have come but there are so many people I’d like to write. This has been a strange year from every point of view and a very unproductive one for me. Must start writing again. I certainly have every opportunity now. The remodeling is completed It was paralysing but now I can get things in order + get started. Even this diary is incomplete but 1971 is going to be a good year I think.

Annie didn’t get in until around 11 o’clock by which time I was pretty crocked. She was exhausted after the fire + really hard long drive. Her hot water heater blew up. – God how ghastly, the drive here cost her several tires to boot.
