A Matter Of Opinion

Keo Chronicles: June 3, 1945

It’s been cold and raining nearly all day. We’ve had fire in fireplace. Eva and Harl came over about 4 to play. In evening, Io and Fred came also. We all sat around table to play and visit.

*Notice the mention of rain. It’s been cold and windy all day on this June 3, 2008. I reminisced at lunch with a friend who also grew up here and we spoke fondly of the rainy Junes we remember from childhood. The kids who went to camp in June usually had a lot of rain. Also, on the rainy days in 1945, people got together to play cards. So did we in our 1960s childhood. Either cards of board games. Another tradition lost?

*What are the Keo Chronicles? Read rest of entry.
