Here's another 'cool' entry from Mattie Lou's 1947 Journal:
Monday March 3
Colder this morning. Bob Wilkins came and we wormed all the calves.
Washed a little. Broke my wash board. Makes me sick. I have had it for 6 years.
Buster has gone to farm with a load of hay for the cows.
B. went to see "California" and I visited with Jo and Les (Took a bath).
