18 October 2017 (Wednesday)

On this day in 1936 (Sunday):
I'm still excited about the football game. Went over to Ruth's. Played football with John & Willie & Ruth. Had lots of fun. 
Last night was not pleasant. I started feeling badly around 8 and after getting out of bed at 10:30 was violently ill. That is, I was performing sacrifices and ablutions to one of my household porcelain idols.

Still had a very good workout this morning though.

On this day in 1936 (Saturday):
Oh! I'm excited. Gee but the football game was good. Wash. won 19-0 (vs Ore. S). First game I've seen with Haines. 
I still think it's adorable that she loves UW football so much.

First major rain of the autumn today and we have more coming tomorrow (larger storm). I went over the lithics data and it looks pretty good. My initial run-through getting summary totals ended up being only 1 off from what I should have. Meaning something is being counted twice. Still, it looks good.

16 October 2017 (Monday)

On this day in 1936 (Friday):
Gee I'm glad it's Friday. Went to Elwood's & Beula's (whole gang - 20 - Surprise Party). Oh! Boy if tomorrow would [comi]. 
 Two items for today:

1) I finished (I hope) analyzing the lithic collection. There were ca. 5,000 and I did 2,054. I still need to do some checking and sorting of some of them, but the main work is done. It has consumed my time for the last 3 weeks.

2) I bought some Levi's 501 jeans this evening. I haven't worn them in probably 25 years. I used to live in them, but then my legs got too big and I wore relaxed-fit ones for a while, and then some others that had "more room in the thigh area" for some reason. I decided to try these since the ones I've been wearing have been really baggy. My legs have not gotten smaller (I don't think) nor weaker, although I haven't been doing the 300+ pound squats I used to do.

On this day in 1936 (Thursday):
Worked[sic] till late doing school work. Hope I finish organization. Dear Miss Oakley -- school would be nice with out her. 
Was going to pour the last batch of beer down the drain today, but I opened one and it was good and carbonated so it earned a reprieve. Still tastes like yeasty sweet blehh though. Before that, however, I made a new batch.

Also helped the neighbors (the mom and the daughter anyway) get rid of some wasps in a nest under some wood by the stream (actually part of the stream bank). They were trying to smoke/burn them out. I brought over some bug spray and sprayed the snot out of it. Part of the reason I went over was because I was mowing the back yard and hit my head on a branch and said "Motherf***er" kind of loud and even though the mower was going they might have heard so I also apologized in case they heard it.

Also were chatting with the new neighbors who moved into Norma's old place. They said they just love the house and "This is the happiest we've been in our entire lives." *sniff*

Bob's all right now. Lloyd and I talked in library. (You aren't supposed to) I think it's terrible to separate boys & girls. 
What would she think today. . . . .

Actually, she only died a few years ago so she knew what's going on.

Gee I like my coat. Mom can drive car pretty good. I've had school work every night for a long time. 
Met my friend F for coffee this afternoon. It was good to see her again. She was working for the last couple months.
