Thought I'd check out Grandmother's Journal this morning:
1st November 1972
Beautiful Fall Day. Ground looked like it had snowed. Bob up early got a big beaver. Mother and Bob went up the river to put out traps. Lots of signs. Had a beautiful trip. She sure enjoyed it. S.R. and his boys going to camp. Had dinner when they got back. Drove over to Ohio. They were discouraged as they (Jim & Dick) didn't see any beaver signs. Black birds still here, lots of Jays - Blues and Canada.
2nd November 1972
Another cold night. Southerly winds to day so no doubt warmer. Mum and Bob went up river to look traps. No fur of any kind. Mum had a good time. Worked on buggy and out to Prongy Pine, no beaver. Bob's back acted up, worries me no end. Mother and I sat up late. Me worrying. Got through the night ok.
Trudeau is going to form a government.
Time for another coffee and then the rest of the house will be up. Enjoy your day!
