Soon Will Be Fall

17-year-old Helena Muffly wrote exactly 100 years ago today: 

Friday, July 26, 1912:  Just a month from today and study hours will be resumed. How glad I will be when they arrive. Carrie came over this afternoon and evening.

Her middle-aged granddaughter’s comments 100 years later:

Just as Grandma felt a hundred years ago, I sense that fall will be here soon. The days are getting shorter . . . and, as my father says, “The wind is blowing over the wheat stubble.”
Carrie refers to Grandma’s friend Carrie Stout.

  1. I felt the same way when I was her age. I looked forward to school starting again.

  2. I wish Grandma could go to college after graduation. She loves school so much.

    • It is too bad. I agree that she would have enjoyed college. Times were so different back then in regards to who went to college.

  3. And I’m finding my first yellow leaves… I was so astonished to see so many under one tree… and it’s still July! I think she loved her friends so much… and school brought them together.
