January, 1937 Excerpts

Do you know how in a book or a movie where the writer will use the weather to create or support the mood in the narrative?  For example, sun shining and birds singing when a character is in love or storm clouds, thunder and then rain when the break up happens?  It is such a…

January, 1937

The beginning of the new year did not disappoint.  They drove around blowing horns and her friend Harland climbs out of the car and dances on the running board.  Celebration and jubilation! After that bit of fun, January seems to be a month of many boys.  There are quite a few interested in her, and…

A New Year: 1937

I do get caught up in the feeling of a new year.  Hope and renewed energy, faith in our selves to make it better…It’s kind of like the excitement of opening a new book.  As with a new year, in a book you have a whole story about to open up for you, new people…

December 1936, Excerpts

At the end of the year, Babu was starting to feel herself a little bit.  What I mean is, she was acting up!  I post this not to defame my grandmother in any way, but it is nice to know she wasn’t a perfect angel.  I think we are all well aware I am telling…

December, 1936

It was my wish to complete transcribing December last month so while the holidays were happening in real life they were also happening in the past, but in the past and present for me.  Does that make sense?  It’s how I feel when I’m transcribing.  It’s the magic of this all being very real and…

November 1936 – “The Political Hub Bub”

Early In November Babu writes that the “political Hub bub will be over soon.”  She is talking about the 1936 election.
