Trella Hemmerly – 1980-12-25

Thursday December 25th
Howard took his gifts before I got up and put six baskets he had woven there for me. Lil gave me a “Porta-Dolly” to carry baggage and Laura made 2 pink angels for me.
Spent most of the day getting dinner ready even with a pre-stuffed turkey.
Mary, Kenny and mother out about 4:30 and Paris and Helen and Margaret Ann at 5:30 which gave us time to open presents. I gave Hecker’s “Time Zero” Polaroid film “Puts” game- 88 Ohio County maps- a canvas carry bag- soft soad[sic]- a tiny gold Krugerrand (copy of the one ounce gold piece). Paris in good spirits and did eat a baked potato and piece of turkey. But was hurting by the time they left.
Kathi called about 9 a.m. she never says but I know she’s homesick. Bob had to work all day.
