When the College Kids Came Home
Besides visiting around among our friends, I suppose the first thing that really was something was the night Margaret, Liz, Aggie and I were sitting on the pavilion talking and Marg's hanky blew in the bay. Real (almost) romance developed from this for a very handsome hero (Maboline Oil dummer rescued it!) He took us all driving in his Buick coupe then - Even if the car was crowded we had a pretty good time. I did chaperoning anyway. (That was on Wednesday night.) On Thursday night Wanda, Mary and Aggie came around to the house and we all danced then went riding with Big Ben. Friday night Wanda gave us a dance at the Troy court - bushels of fun. Marg was about the only one not there. Sat. night Aggie and I went to the show then rode around in Vernon Reaser's car and talked until 2:30 a. m. Sunday things weren't right bright - rather dull no excitement - went riding with Weldon.
Wednesday night had a boat sail. Thursday night a dance at the pavilion also one Friday night. After the dance Friday night they all came up to the house and we all drank punch (spiked - heads or heels?) and ate cake.
