Beginning of August, 1934 Excerpts

She might seem like a wallflower fading into a corner….

Sunday, August 5th, 1934
Went to church again. They must think I’m a regular member. I like Sunday cause we always have company and it isn’t dull. But gee! I was sure I’d go home Saturday and I’m not so it seems. Adele said they enjoy my company and I should be glad. I’ll have to stay two weeks yet. It’ll be like two years. There is a picnic Sunday and they have to go.  Honest I feel terrible. I want to go home. I want to go home to everybody.

But she’s still got guts!

The water was freezing cold today. My teeth were chattering like everything. I tried a dive holding my hands straight at my sides.  I went in feet first but I lost myself.  I didn’t know where I was.  Whether my head was where my feet were or the opposite.  After what seemed like an eternity I reached the top.  I said, it won’t beat me, and did it again.  This time I wasn’t all tangled up with myself, but I touched the bottom.  I have to go home by myself Saturday cause Frank has to go to New York-yea, that’s what he says

Yea!  It won’t beat her!
