Reading this is mesmorizing to me. $1.00 for overalls? The idea of snapping corn made me wheeze when I was little...allergic to the silks. I'm sneezing right now. Please tell me "wife" gets well.

I am so happy you are enjoying the diary. I was sad when he stopped writing. Not only did I enjoy reading about his everyday life, it was unbelievable thinking it was my great great grandfather writing it.

Bless you; I hope you have stopped sneezing by now :)

Wife does get better.

I have been working a lot on genealogy, now I am putting the names I have had with the story. It is just so amazing.
