July 15 1947

In the summer of 1947 Bill Nevard was working on the new barn.

July 15 I dug some of the West wall in the morning. Then I caught Gleam and Embers
and hauled two loads of gravel after dinner. Mr. Fisher brought Dad home and they
rode up to Cliff Barton's to see about a building that Mr. Fisher wants to buy
and move to Lipton where he and Mrs. Fisher are going to live.

July 17 Raining a bit this morning so Roy and I made 20 more half blocks in the
stable. It cleared off after a bit. Bud, Carol and the baby went to Lipton and
went to Lipton sports with Bill Miller. Mr. Fisher came along and took Dad, Uncle
Horrie and Donald down to Lipton sports. Roy and I got 2 loads of gravel after dinner.


  1. I assume that they were making cement blocks?

  2. Sure did Gorges. They had gravel right on the farm and did quite a bit of cement work making culverts for the municipality and other odd cement jobs that helped pay the bills when farming didn't.
