Went up to Emmett and Melvin's for dinner. Daddy fixed roof. Went over to Annie McKenzie's (Ruth's step-grandmother). She gave me a pretty pocket watch.*
|*This is the actual pocket watch that Annie McKenzie|
gave to Ruth Catherine McKenzie on August 24, 1933.
The watch now belongs to Ruth's namesake granddaughter,
Catherine Provenzale Braun.
