17-year-old Helena Muffly wrote exactly 100 years ago today:
Sunday, March 31, 1912:Today has been a glorious day. Went to Sunday school this morning and to church this evening with Ruth.
I can picture Grandma and her sister Ruth walking this street in McEwensville–past these houses–on a beautiful spring day a hundred years ago.
Her middle-aged granddaughter’s comments 100 years later:
There an old saying that if March comes in like a lion, it will go out like a lamb—and that if it came in a like a lamb it will go out like a lion.
Grandma and her sister Ruth walked the mile or so to McEwensville twice on this spring day. It’s always feels good when March ends with good weather.
