Thursday, August 24, 1933

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.

The average price of a nice pocket watch in 1933: $10
