Small souvenir from the Bamboo Shop

"Womens' Club day.  Mr. Jelliffe to talk on T.S. Elliot.  Rachel asked me to ride so left house before 11:00 a.m.  Picked up Jelliffes.  All got out at Daimaru.  Mrs. Outerbridge & I killed time in Daimaru & went to Bamboo Shop.  On up Tor Rd. to Silver Shop to inquire about tea sets (teapot, coffee pot, creamer, sugar bowl & tongs) for 164.00.  Tray extra.  Met Rachel at 1:45.  Small group to hear excellent talk.  Bought apples on way home.  Stopped at art shop to buy paper.  Policeman politely asked Rachel never to park there.  Near intersection.  Home for sukiyaki.

Many mothers around K.G.  Trying to register children in college even if they didn't pass exams.  Paid for exams."
