(Grandma made no diary entries during the month of June.)

Friday, July 6:  "Mama had Delma, Hazel & I over for supper.  Mama gave us money & we all went to the show."

July 6th was Grandma's birthday, yet she doesn't even mention it in her entryI suppose that's why her mother gave them money for the show.
