G-ma Ruth’s Diary – June 20, 1943

DiarySee this post for more information about my Grandmother’s diary.

June 20, 1943 – Father’s Day – Sunday

” Got up at 8 a.m. but later lay down and dozed off and what a miserable dream.  Stayed home all day.  Feeling much better – took it easy.  Was warm this a.m. but turned cold this p.m.   Have oven burning.  Don’t know yet why the air raid, blackout last night.  Sprained my wrist punching “signal cards” – sure swollen.

G-ma Ruth’s Diary – June 19, 1943

June 19, 1943 – Saturday

” First air raid since we’ve been here.  Came on about 1:15 – I should say Sunday a.m. – lasted until 1:50.  Had a time getting everything blacked out.  Sure glad I was home from the yard.  Saw a plane in the sky but know nothing yet.  Balloons sure went skyward.  Moonlight nite – few fluffy clouds-real light.

The Oakland Tribune had the following article in the paper on the 21 of June 1943.
