A cold rainy day with some wind from the S.W.  I had planned to put the “Backyard in November” in its frame and ship it to Budworth, but I was unsuccessful in cutting a glass I had, and was unable to obtain glass at the city line, so I gave it up, -

P.M. a sketch of our drive, sheltering myself in the garage.  The effect was similar to the “Driveway in Winter” which I did two years ago, except this one is more lyrical, and may turn out to be better.     

Evening – supper and cards at Mart & Hanks. Mart prepared a delicious supper – then cards afterward, which we enjoyed.  Hank introduced us to “Crazy-Eights” which was relaxing after the usual rummy game.
