November 17: I went to Lipton on the bus this morning. Charlie Bull also went to Lipton and Cecilia Tomack went on to Regina apparently. I went to the Post Office to try and trace the missing money order I had sent to Uncle Arthur. I also visited Fishers and Mrs. Fisher told me that Kenny has another son born on the 9th. I started walking back to the San but got a ride on an oil truck most of the way. There was an amateur hour on in Lipton tonight. Bob Smith and Darlene took part in it.
November 18: Sunday. Dad went to a morning service in Lipton with Mr. Corkhill. Dick and I walked down to an evening service at St. John's and rode back with Mr. Stiff. Laura Motherwell also got a ride back to the San. Sandy Goff came along tonight to ask Dad to go to Lipton tomorrow and help them fix up their furnace so Mr. and Mrs. Goff can move into town.
November 19: Dad went to Lipton to help Goffs fix up their furnace. He missed the bus so Sandy came and fetched him and he came home on the bus at night.
