Fri., May 24, 1935 - Clear and warm all day. Mom worked in garden in a.m. This p.m. we cleaned up the junk pile west of the house, spaded the ground and made a flower bed. We fixed the trellis and planted my cactus. Went to lodge tonite. Howard brought me home in the "Whoopee."
Sat., May 25, 1935 - Cleaned up the house today. The quilt came today. It's going to be a beauty when it's made.
Sun., To S.S. and church. I worked on my Flower Garden quilt this afternoon. Went to Hoskins tonite with Howard, Helen, Irene, Bess and Raymond to a dance and play "Look Out Lizzie" given by Elsie Eckert's school. I don't think it was as good a play as ours. Hm!
A junk pile by the house?! Seems impossible there was ever anything like that. Also, since when did Grandma have cacti outside in a flower bed? So many questions, but most importantly, what was the "Whoopee"?
I discovered only a little about "Look Out Lizzie". It was described, depending on where one read, as a comedy-drama, simply a comedy, or a rural farce. The photo is of a church group, not a cast from Hoskins but I thought I'd toss it in here regardless. The only Maybee I could find was in Michigan, a village of some 500 folks so maybe (pun intended) it is/was somewhat Wayne County-ish.
