Someone Special

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

Grandma would have walked down this road to get to Carrie’s house.

Friday, July 31, 1914:  Made a business trip to Watsontown this morning, and I must say it was arranged to my satisfaction. Went to a surprise party this evening. It was over at Carrie’s. Enjoyed myself as much as I usually do. I think no doubt remains as to the state of my feelings concerning somebody.

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


Who is it? More details, PLEASE!

  1. Yes please! More details.

  2. Maddening I tell you! Feelings of love for a man? Feelings of disdain toward someone at the party? What Helena? What? ;)

  9. My goodness, it is feast or famine with Grandma’s tales.

  10. I love the photo you matched with this post. I wounder where the road is leading?

  11. Yep a little too vague – though I am sure she never imagined that a hundred years later her diary would be on her grandaughter’s blog! Maybe she would have left a few more details. :)

  12. OOH! The plot thickens.

  13. AND YOU’VE READ AHEAD AND KNOW ALL THE ANSWERS! You must be enjoying this !
