17-year-old Helena Muffly wrote exactly 100 years ago today:
Sunday, October 13, 1912: Went to Sunday School this morning. Had to amuse myself this afternoon because no one came to see me and most of the family had gone away.

Read a book?
Go for a walk?
Do a little sewing?
Do a little embroidery?
Do her homework? . .. . nah
