Clear and Rainy Weather
I worked this morning and this afternoon carried Leone to the Doctor. It rained while we were there and after we got home.

The weather is still hot and sultry, and for eleven days (the Norfolk paper reports today) is still quite unsettled. We have had four heavy showers since noon. My little girl went out after the rain tonight but while water was still dripping off the house. She asked her mother if it were still raining and when she said, No, well then, she said, “it’s leaking”.
We have another practice blackout tonight beginning at eight thirty and lasting until one a.m. It is now five after eight. I have to go out and see that all the lights in the community are out.

Today has been another of those terribly hot ones. I have worked all day. Tonight I took Leone to the Doctor. I think that his office was as warm a place as I have ever been.

We had a nice crowd at the Sunday School service this morning. I taught the Men’s Bible Class in the absence of Brother George Watkins who is in a Richmond Hospital for treatment.
This afternoon Dr. C. Fred Williams, District Superintendent preached at 3:30. The congregation was small. Today was Papa’s birthday. He is 63 and Charlie had us all come for dinner with him. We had the best peach ice cream I ever ate I believe.
