Emmy, Vi, and I laughed till we were silly this afternoon over sea vegetable pills Emmy brought to give her energy. Friday night seems to be a steady going out one for Jakey. Wish he would include me once in a while. What good does it do to live so near to each other when we don’t ever see one another?

Mother and I shopped this afternoon. Didn’t buy very much – a jacket, shoes, and hat. It rained hard tonight so Mom and I stayed at home and set in my bedroom and talked all evening. Gosh but Mom and Dad care for each other. I guess they won’t want to live if either one goes.
I loved reading that passage.
