Mar. 22 – Sun.
Another warm sunny day –
B + M + I to early service – Early P.M. – Mount the 1917 sketch.
P.M. – We flirted with the idea of going to Sisti’s opening but decided it was too nice a day to go to the city.
Late P.M. – the Richters over for a visit. Hank & I played rummy, both games of which he won.
After they left, about 9:00 B + I for a walk “around the block” – peepers east of Wiegard Ave going full and strong – the very sound changes the “look” of houses. A half moon high overhead, almost at the exact Zenith.
