6th August 1948: A new toy

6 Fri. Very mild becoming cool, dismal, humid rain most of the day. Franz played the organ & piano but he liked pin bagatelle the best and could hardly be made to leave it. Did the shopping locally including buying a cake. Mrs. Conley did the usual Fri afternoon cleaning. As her boys are away Ann being lonely came here, so amused her. Cousin Maud bought an amusing present for Gwennie – a queer looking toy duck which, called Dilly, dips its beak at intervals into a tumbler of water and continues indefinitely: it is worked by some chemical action unknown to me.
