May 21, 1933, Sunday: A bright, beautiful morning until 9 a.m., then started to cloud to west and north, and at about 10:30 a.m. a real rain storm, and in p.m. the sun shone bright and lovely, but was muddy. The men partly chored before breakfast, and Wm and I went to the store, got gas and oil and a few groceries, then on to Wm Pierce where we stopped awhile until the rain quit, but before we got to Pierce’s, the engine got wet and the car stopped during the worst rain, but finally we went on to Pierce’s, then after the rain tried the grade to edge of hills, and put chains on to get into pasture, then home, but Will, Narvin and John Wisenberger and Ben Clausen who came had dinner, so we had ours. We lost our radiator cap south of Pierce’s, so he loaned us one.
Will and Narvin went to the hills to see if Mr. Rumolfson of north-east Winner was coming with his cattle, but he did not come. Jerry Karnes was here on horseback in p.m., and we all talked chicks. Curtie and Dutch Elshire were here this a.m. during the rain. They come to get Grandpa Elshire’s mare and colt. I didn’t mention that Wm and I were started to get Fred Larmer at Harry’s and take him to St. Francis to be confirmed.
