My Discovery

                Temperance leagues are for ladies! And they don’t have them anymore. And they were only so you don’t drink alcohol and I don't drink al-co-hol so it’s not like joining one would save me any trouble at all. I feel cheated! *Wail*

                Mama said that temperance leagues helped create women’s suffrage. She smiled big when she said it. I don’t know why suffering is a good thing, but Mama seemed happy about it. I suffered today. It did not make me happy. I got my fifteen “choo-choo” books and piled them all together in the family room and said “read book,” “read book, Mama.” And she didn’t “read book!” She put me down in my crib for a nap.             
                I need Nana to visit because she “read book” as much as I want.

Temperance Leagues

Today I was reading Mama’s book and it talked about a temperance league. I asked Mama what a temperance league was and she says it is people who pledge never to drink. I would like to pledge never to drink or eat. Then maybe Dada wouldn’t keep stuffing food in my face. He makes me eat chicken, and cauliflower, and milk, and rice and all kinds of yucky things. The only things I likes to eat are “wawa juice” (orange juice), cheese, and the yummy granola bars that come wrapped up in foil.
                Signing off to go find a temperance league.

Cal's Choo-Choo

I read the first chapter of Mama’s book today. There’s a choo-choo in it! Cal comes to the mountains in a choo-choo! I love choo-choos. They are probably my favorite thing in the whole wide world.

Mama says the Denver & Rio Grande choo-choo first came to the town in the 1880s. Mama also told me that a few hundred years ago there were no choo-choos.

I am trying to imagine a world without choo-choos. It is a sad, lonely place.
