The best is good enough -German

Temp 32-34° F

Cold lasts and snow lasts. I got up late, fixed pancake breakfast and Maurice ate a pretty good breakfast but went back to bed. I put some balm on his chest and back, he slept a while.

I made a red raspberry short cake and we had chicken and dumplings for dinner. He got up and ate some, but went back to bed. I had just finished dinner work when Mr K came. He knocked 5 times and then began to hollar “Mister Gordon”. I finally had to go to the door and tell him that Maurice was sick and I could not let him in. He is the worry of our life.

Supper. In eve, Ed Sullivan Show, Ted Mack and What’s My Line. Maurice did not get up until What’s My Line. Jewell and Herman were up home today.
