Saturday October 12th, 1968
Clinton, Tennessee and Clear Creek, Kentucky
This morning M.G. took the boys to their football game. We ate a quick lunch. Took Dad’s car back and went by Mrs. Duncan’s house to pick up some mail. We took Alan by the Daniel’s house for the week-end while M.G., Ken, and I went on to Kentucky. We got to the preacher’s school about 4:30. I went with M.G. to his preaching point. It was a small mission. There was a man with a mental condition who sang a song after the service.
When we came home on furlough Dad and Mom would try to make life as normal as possible for us kids. Alan and I both played on peewee football teams. Correction, Alan played I took up real-estate.
Alan then went to spend the week-end with his best friend Charles Daniel. The Daniel’s were our neighbors before we moved to Kenya. Charlie has drawn some great cartoons of Dad and Alan through the years.
