18-year-old Helena Muffly wrote exactly 100 years ago today:
Friday, October 24, 1913:
10/20 – 10/24: It’s been so rainy and dreary this week that I begin to feel awful grouchy. I certainly am under the weather these days. Any way October never was a favorite month of mine. I don’t have much to write about for her.
Her middle-aged granddaughter’s comments 100 years later:
Cold, dreary days in October always make me think about the upcoming winter—and the need get prepared. Maybe Grandma made herself a new winter hat while she was stuck inside.
