I am feeling fine040722and am enjoying the glorious day - its fine and warm and sunshiney. Spring seems to be here - the frogs know it and fairly shout up and down the ditches every evening. Last night was very warm and the frogs "yelled," as Mrs Swe[l?]t says.Miss Brodt has changed her mind about having her friend come and has written for her not to come.
