Out 3 1/2
Phillies 3 games out were swept by Houston. Pittsburgh in First.
Up about 7. Joyce already up. Dick left at 7:45 and I gave Joyce a check for Garden Crest and the info on electric + gas at Larrabee. She said she’d get them cut off for us. Then we drove to the Washboard + she dropped me + took the car. A fairly busy morning. I did 4 washes before Mae came. Anti-Crime called – our burglar alarm had gone off. Aaron + Joyce came by minutes later and they’d done everything right so there was no reason. Dick went over to investigate + nothing out of line. They promised to send someone tomorrow. We came home about 3 + conked out on the sofas. Woke about 5:30 [crossed out letters] and put leg of lamb in the oven. Joyce up + had a cup of tea + then went out to get the last rays of sun as she’s got sniffles. Their friends who were supposed to be going back at 2 this afternoon changed their plans to 10 pm! We had a nice dinner lamb, zuccini casserole (Mary’s zuccini at long last!! 4 wks after she gave it to me.) potato pancakes, mint jelly, apple sauce + gravy. We went back to the Washboard at 9:15 + I took Aaron + Joyce to the Hilton to meet their friends.
Mary called + said Jamie Sholty had been in critical condition – a team of 8 doctors operated for 2 1/2 hours – They think she’ll be okay but she’s down to 58 pounds.
